Ah the sweet, sweet smell of sweat and foam! What better way than to start the new year off with a RAAAAAAIIIIIIDDDDDDD!!!!!

Having gained new members and recovered old ones in the last six months, the Southlands decided to their neighbors in Thangordrim.

Who am I kidding? It was a glorious day for a battle!

Without further ado, here's some pics!

Some light sparring to start us off for the day. Kal's looking good in his new garb.

Totoro goes after "Frederico the Swashbuckling Paladin" A.K.A. Karthauser

Snake shows us why baggy garb can be awesome and useful!

Block! Edge to the face! Stab.

About ten seconds later I got bowled over by The Mexican. Bad Karthauser! Paladins are s'posed to look out for the innocent bystanders! ;P

I posted this one specifically for Snake's face.

Dead Milo holds a conversation with a fellow fighter.

Milo was holding his own against Tyrinus fairly well until suddenly......

Leaping Samurai Technique!

A good battle for sure. Good battle, good day, good weekend.
