Space Battle Grand Rapids 2016

A Fan-Run, Charitable Event to Benefit Make-A-Wish Michigan

Join us for a massive battle of space wizards vs. space warlocks in downtown Grand Rapids. Pick a side and use that venerable, ancient, glowing tool: the light sword, in the ultimate nocturnal showdown. In December we broke the word record, and we are excited to come to Grand Rapids.

For every $5 (early bird – $10 regularly) you contribute, we will reserve one light sword for you. Each light sword changes up to 6 colors is about 3′ long, and you will be able to pick them up at the event.

We will start to gather at 8:00, split into space warlocks (red swords) vs. space wizards (everyone else) a little after 9:00, and the battle will begin. The fun awakens!

Winter Haven 2016 Event #1

The ground itself trembles under the weight of the events to come.

With the dawn of a new year, the Witchwood Hold stands at a precipice. Behind the Heroes who reside there lies a legacy of deeds in which they have bested every foe, turned back every threat and carved from a chaotic land a place they can call home.

Before them, however, the path diverges. Two possibilities and only one certainty…

…the certainty that one of those paths leads to darkness and ruin. It is a certainty born of knowledge, and their own experiences in a time that was, but is no longer. The Heroes of the Witchwood turned back the clock and have made great strides against the fate they once knew.

Is it enough? The weapon they possess is incomplete, and the greatest threat they have known thus far now walks the land. The Black King searches for the keys to unlock the power with which he nearly brought the world to its knees. Only a few brave, stalwart men and women stand between him and the completion of his tyrannical ambition.

But there is hope.

The Heroes of the Witchwood are that hope. Assets have been gained, knowledge has been acquired, friends and allies have been brought to their side.

Trials are coming. Will they stand fast and unite as one, or will a craven traitor from within their own ranks seal their doom?

War is coming. Will they fight this war bravely as Heroes, or will they lose their only chance to spare their land from the Black Campaign?

The time is coming. What will YOU do?

Will you join the fight? Will you lend your blade, bow or voice to the Witchwood on this, the eve of its darkest hour?

Choose your path, tell your tale, find your destiny.

Winterhaven is coming.
