Stygia is the Montana chapter of the Belegarth Medieval Combat Society.

There are different levels of play, there are gatherings were a lot of people play at once, and there are small groups and teams that intermingle with other groups.

- Beth Stoops
Beth Stoops is "three feet tall and dresses kooky." There's mounting evidence she might not be human. Or even a she. But she's interesting to talk to, unintentionally funny, and can help your sewing go to the next level and beyond. If you are looking for her and don't see her, look down. If that doesn't work, carry around a cup of English Breakfast -- eventually she'll come out of hiding.
