Legion of House Manticore

Name: Legion of House Manticore
Type: Company
Url: Website
Description: Legion of House Manticore is the fighting group (company/unit) of House Manticore. We try to stylize ourselves after ancient roman warfare tactics. This mindset if viable in the Medieval Reenactment world as for a majority of the groups do not allow for horses. Since the armoured Knight is not the end-all-be-all of the modern medieval battlefield, why not use the tactics that carried an empire for hundreds of years! While Legion does model itself after the Roman Legions and there are members that have Roman personas, Legion of House Manticore is not a Roman Legion.
History: During the Summer of '96, some friends (and coworkers as well) in the Army decided to join a local medieval/fantasy reenactment group. Actually, Corwin had joined the group with a friend of his, known as Styles (now as Alexandr). Corwin also played D&D with a few guys in his unit. One evening he was late getting to our weekend game session... and upon his arrival, explained why he was late. He had just gotten back from a small event with a group call Amtgard. After his explination, the rest of us thought it would be pretty cool to give it a try... Eventually we small band of friends created a Company, with Corwin in the lead. We named our company Legion and our household, House Manticore. Thereby... Legion of House Manticore. After a couple of years there in the Dutchy of Dragon's Haven playing the game of Amtgard many of us drifted away... not because we did not enjoy Amtgard... we were all in the military and because of that were deployed elsewhere or got out of the military entirely. So, obviously this story is not over... since here is a website and lots of people that have joined the Legion and House Manticore. Eventually Mephiston was released from the military... and went back to his home state of Illinois to go back to school at Illinois State University. Mephiston gathered together some like minded individuals and re-booted the Legion. And even after all the ups and downs of the start of Legion in Illinois, we are still here... and with the family unity that we all share in this organization, will continue to do so for many years to come.
