Founded in 2004, Albion is the local Dagorhir chapter based in Columbia, SC with outposts in Charleston and the Upstate.
General fighting practices are held in Irmo, SC, Gaffney, SC and Charleston, SC at one of several available locations (see calendar for exact dates and times).
Dagorhir is a full-contact, medieval combat game where participants dress up in medieval/fantasy garb and take part in unscripted battles using padded weapons. At events all around the country, you will see Dagorhir members fighting as Roman legionnaires, Celtic warriors, noble knights, stoic samurai, Greek hoplites, ghoulish goblins, and much more as they take part in scenario games to storm castles, defend kings, capture flags, or simply destroy an opposing army.To learn more about dagorhir and the rules of the game, visit www.dagorhir.com

"Warhorns sound, Wardrums beat,
The earth rumbles with quick marching feet.
The raven's call tells us of ruin coming home.
Brave souls should gather, or face death alone.
Before the northmen proudly stand, An alliance of Freesouls, from Albion land.
Sons of Tara of skill renown, Eagerly wait, for worthy foes found
Gold Leaf Legion, Where one, be two Prepare elf hearts, to kill more than few.
Wolves of Iron, souls of steel, Lick their teeth, For Tyr's next meal
Lochwald clan, fair by the sea, soon to be known by all enemy
So listen O' Alba, and heed the warcall, Winter War's coming, Let's gather all.
For Ragnarok's field, was claimed by the South,
And old North bones lust to regain clout. Stand by your brothers, Stand by the Realm,
Together we'll cleave Both shield and fell helm.
To War!!! ALBION!!!"

ALbion Monthly muster
We try to schedule a larger fighting event once a month on the first Saturday of the month for local fighters called a "muster". Garb is required and these are never overnight camping events but we do usually eat afterwards as a family.
Celebrate Albion's beginnings with feast and friendship and hitting each other with foam sticks.
