Introduction

The Wars of the Roses is an annual event held in The Barony of Concordia of the Snows. It is usually scheduled around Memorial Day weekend. It is themed on the historical Wars of the Roses in England, and participants are encouraged to choose which side they are fighting for: the House of Lancaster, symbolized by a red rose, or the House of York, symbolized by a white rose. In years past a third neutral or "mercenary" party was also offered, sometimes symbolized by a yellow rose.

The winning party is determined through points earned from the various activities at the event, including fighting, fencing, archery, bardic competitions, arts and sciences activities, purchases from merchants and more. At the end of the event the side with the most points is declared that year's winner.
