Welcome to the Refugees of the Olde Worlde Tournament!


This tournament is a labor of love and a dedication to the recently turned bygone days of yore playing in a now lost world of swords and sorcery. For those of us who grew up playing in that somewhat ridiculous world that gradually began to swing over into the grimdark towards the end it was a significant blow when that world was suddenly taken from us and a new one set down in its place that barely resembled anything at all like what we had thought of when we led our armies onto the fields of victory in basements and hobby stores across the globe.


With this sudden turn of events we found ourselves bereft of a vibrant and living game system in which to use our models that we had dedicated countless hours, and more money than we readily admit, into building. While some have suggested that we cling to the ghost of a system that stubbornly refuses to die it can be hard to form a lasting community on a game that no longer has any professional support dedicated to its further development. It is with this concept in mind that we have decided to host this tournament, in the hopes that you will take Kings of War back to your gaming clubs and groups and we can build up a lasting community here in South East Idaho that will provide the outlet for our fantasy gaming needs.


I hope you enjoy this weekend and the tournament as we’ve worked hard to bring it to life, and in the future I hope to see all of you around the gaming tables and on the battlefield.
