SO WHAT IS RAVENSCRY SANCTUARY?

rAVENSCRY SANCTUARY IS A FICTIONAL VILLAGE THAT WE HAVE CREATED WITHIN ITHILIEN. IT IS THE TYPICAL VILLAGE AS MIGHT HAVE BEEN CONSTRUCTED BY THE NEW SETTLERS COMING BACK TO THE GARDEN OF GONDOR.

RANGERS

OF COURSE IT IS NOT BUILT YET AND REMAINS ONLY AS AN IDEA BUT WE DO HAVE SEVERAL HUNDRED ACRES OF PROPERTY TO RETREAT INTO THE WORLD OF MIDDLE EARTH.

AND WHO KNOWS WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS? PERHAPS WITH HELP, WE WILL BE ABLE TO SEE ITHILIEN RECREATED WITHIN OUR OWN WORLD.

WE LOVE MIDDLE EARTH SO MUCH THAT IT WASN'T ENOUGH FOR US TO SIMPLY READ TOLKIEN'S GREAT WORKS OR PLAY A GAME WHERE WE PLAYED A CHARACTER. NO, WE HAD TO LIVE IT AND THAT IS WHAT WE DO. WHEN WE GO OUT IN THE FIELD, WE CARRY ONLY ITEMS THAT THE RANGERS MIGHT HAVE CARRIED - SO NO PLASTIC, NO MODERN EQUIPMENT. MOST OF OUR EQUIPMENT WOULD HEARKEN TO THE TIME OF THE MIDDLE AGES EXCEPT WITH A FANTASY FLAIR. WE USE NOT ONLY TOLKIEN'S BOOK "THE TWO TOWERS" AS INSPIRATION BUT THE LORD OF THE RINGS MOVIES, MEDIEVAL HISTORY AND ARTWORK, ESPECIALLY THAT OF THE BROTHERS HILDEBRANDT TO CREATE OUR CLOTHING, WEAPONS AND EQUIPMENT.
