Gathering of the Clans 2016

Wednesday, July 20 – Sunday, July 24

Sacramento Retreat

3081 US Hwy 82, Mayhill, NM 88339, between mile marker 30 and 31 on the West side. Please join us this July for The Gathering of the Clans XXXIV in Mayhill, New Mexico. Since its inception over thirty years ago, Clan has been meant to represent the combined efforts of Amtgard across all of its subsidiary chapters. To honor this intent, we are pleased to announced this year’s event, featuring battlegames, quests, feasts, and other spectacles hosted by Amtgardians from across the entire country. Each year, the Gathering of the Clans is hosted by a sleepy hamlet just North of the Dragonspine-Burning Lands border. As our annual festival draws near, it is clear that an eldritch evil has besieged us from the cold wilderness of the nearby mountain ranges. The sun in the sky is but a dim glow amidst a hazy fog that covers the lands. Trolls, goblins, and other monsters have emerged from their shaded hiding places to besiege the village and bring great strife to its residents. Sailing up the great river from the nearest ocean, mighty warriors depart their longboats, in search of glory. In these desperate times, the Circle of Monarchs has gathered to address these evils summarily, lest their vile stench condemn these old halls to an eternity of despair.
