Salt Wars started when IM Emperor Elect, Sir Michael Hammer of God, contacted the Sheriff of River's End (Fitz Caliston) in early spring of 2003 explaining his goal of traveling to meet with all the groups of the Empire. MHoG requested to meet with both theShire of River's End and the Barony of Dragon's_Spyre (Cedar City UT) at the same time in an effort to facilitate his travel plans.
Three weeks of intense planing and lots of hard work from both Utah groups produced the first Salt Wars, held in a canyon in southern Tooele County (about 45 minutes from Salt Lake). Since then the event has acted as the catalyst that has melded all the groups who eventually formed the Principality of Desert Winds. Since then the Desert Winds has become a Kingdoom in it's own right and the event has flourished even more.
Salt Wars has grown each year and continues to get bigger and better. Come see if you're worth your Salt!
