Crimson Sanctum

From AmtWiki

A defunct Shire of Westmarch. It has since been replaced by Sunfire Valley


The story of Crimson Sanctum began in August 2004, when Lalailom Risteska and Anberon Nole (both college students at Azusa Pacific University; see right) took up residence in Azusa, California. Activity that first semester was low key, limited to small-scale sparring on the college’s Trinity Lawn by the new group’s scarce equipment.

Lalailom and Anberon, the founders of the chapter. Lalailom originally played in Cage Valley of Walla Walla, Washington; Anberon was a new player. In Lalailom’s own words, “Pretty much I was the one with the knowledge and he was the one with the motivation.”
The chapter’s revised heraldry. The red background and white sword kept their original meanings. The new dragons symbolize the affiliation with Dragonspine, and the new rooks symbolize the affiliation with Westmarch. The leaves on the bottom just look pretty.

In 2014, the park is once again up to respectable shire numbers ranging from 5-10. Sir Downfall, Prednjak, and Novac have been attempting to breathe new life into his chapter and bring it back to it's former glory, if not surpass it.

In September 2007, these short videos (Clip 1, Clip 2, Clip 3) were shot by a passerby at the old Northside Park location.

In August 2008, these photographs (Album 1) were shot by Rangor's Wench at the Crimson Sanctum-run Northern Invasion event.
