The Grand Hunt
8th February - 10th February 2019
Gunman Airsoft - Eversley
“Louder, louder chant the lay,
Waken, lords and ladies gay!
Tell them youth and mirth and glee
Run a course as well as we;
Time, stern huntsman! who can balk,
Staunch as hound and fleet as hawk:
Think of this, and rise with day,
Gentle lords and ladies gay!”
Lady Nimue de Beaumont, a noble Dawnish hunter of some renown, invites all those who delight in the glory of the hunt to her House’s lands in Weirmoor, a region notorious for the quality and variety of its game. In past seasons she has led the hunt to the heart of the forest, pursuing bears, mountain lions, dire-wolves and even the occasional wyvern, for the Glory of her house and for the trophies that now cover the walls of Beaumont Keep.
Lady Nimue has heard tell that Anvil now regularly hosts groups of others who share her zeal for the thrill of the chase, so is for the first time formally welcoming Imperials of all nations to test their mettle against her house in a grand hunt, a contest over two nights to bring the head of the most glorious beast to her tourney grounds. She is particularly interested to see how the Wintermark notion of Heroism stands up against Dawnish steel.
The contest will begin with a banquet, so all may know their rivals and break bread with them. Then the following morning, the hunt begins…

The Grand Hunt will be a medium level threat game, with creatures most heroes of the Empire consider too dangerous to take on alone. It is particularly suited to groups of players from individual nations, but there’s also space for individuals within the envisaged game.
The site consists of several settlements built and maintained by players and crew of the various EyeLarp games. The buildings in the Viking Village will be allocated for sleeping arrangements once we know numbers, and will be IC for the duration of the game. There is also space for both IC and OC tents close by.
There is no running water on site so please bring enough drinking and washing water for your party.
Tickets will be £75 which includes the Friday night banquet.
Booking forms and payment will be up shortly.
crewing is free, crew will be fed and on the go all weekend.
