About

Realm of Stygia
Realm of Stygia

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

Belegarth is a medieval sword fighting sport where foam padding is used on the weapons to prevent serious physical injury to participants.

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. But most importantly Belegarth is a semi-competitive sport where participants can strive to just enjoy playing with others or work at being physically and mentally the best fighter they can be.

Valhalla's Workbench

We are a conglomeration of artists that work together to improve ourselves, our skills, and each other in the same. We are an odd family of different sorts that have learned that working together is better than trying to go it alone. We search all over to find other artists and artisans to promote and also for products that our customers would love to have.

We travel to several events to sell our wares and our crafts. There have been some bumps over the years and we have lost and gained several workmen. As the work flows as does life.
