New Player Information
New players to Five Islands do not need any costume, weapons, equipment or knowledge of the game in order to attend. You can simply turn up and join in.
When you arrive at the field, you will need to complete the signup process, then you will be given a weapon - and taken through an orientation process, in which we train you on the rules, the basics of how the game functions, and how to use the weapon you were given.
After training, you'll typically have three rounds of exciting combat - with drink breaks and social time between rounds. It's lots of fun, you'll love it.

Battlecry Five Islands takes place in the plain of Alenthia. The world is a high fantasy pre-gunpowder fantasy setting. Players represent members of one of the five islands each fighting for a variety of reasons. The battlegames take place in points of history, told in a non-linear path. The archiver, who records the stories and history of Alenthia, is slowly retelling the stories of the world and how one island came to be five.
