The Tadcaster Militia is a group of men and women drawn together by a love of rapier combat and other ridiculous things. This website sheds light on the hows and whys of the group.

Our base of operations is the Bhakail Baronial Rapier Practice, on Wednesday nights from 7:30 pm to 10:30 pm in the Mayfair section of Philadelphia, PA. This practice is the official rapier practice for the Barony of Bhakail, and is open to all. We're just the inmates who run the asylum.

The Militia boasts over two dozen members taking part in various activities as a unit. Interested in learning more about the practice or the Militia? This page describes our reasons for being, structure, and the like. This one can tell you where the actual Tadcaster is. Over here you'll find our collective travel and event stories, and here are our quotable utterances... so you can get an idea of what we're talking about. Or not.

For further information about the practice, contact Melchior Kreibel, the Baronial Rapier Marshal.
