Battle Group

The component that appeals to the majority of members, and public alike, is the Battle Group. As such, we have a military branch that has been established along side the general ranking system. The main objective of the Military Branch is to provide an organized progression and recognition for those members participating regularly in the Red Stag Battle Group. Therefore, all Battle Group rules and requirements as outlined in the Members Handbook apply to each of these rankings.


There are no gender restrictions to acquiring titles in the Military Branch.


It is important to understand that we are trying to kept the medieval atmosphere which can be easily destroyed by too much modern influence so it is best to keep those elements minimal. Some allowances are allotted if one of the Stewards permits.

The Red Stags Battle Group uses real armor and foam/latex weapons to recreate the feel of the medieval battle. Members try to hit the opponent in the hit zone to eliminate them.


The hit zone is the area below the neck and above the knees and elbows. Anyone landing a blow with a weapon or missile in this area has scored a hit.


Different types of armor can be combined but the lowest protection factor will apply to all hit zones. The armor's protection number, known also as hit points, is the amount of damage it will protect you from. The hits received may be by the same or different opponents equaling the number of hit points of the armor.
