Notes from the Land Agent, Baron Magnus:

  • First, I won't need your [tent] dimensions. Gulf Wars is SO crowded there is no way I can lay it out at all.
  • Second, while land allotment is 225 sq ft, we do not get enough land for everyone to have their full allotment. Calontir is land locked. The number of people exceeds the amount of land. Plus the space for the courtyard and Kingdom Pavilion come out of our total land which reduces individual land even further.
  • What we do is bring the tents and things we need...but not the extra tents or the biggest tent we own or sunshades for everyone. We bring the smallest one that will work for us and we share sunshades. We cross ropes of tents to get them as close together as possible. The paths through the tents get tricky but by being that tight we can get everyone in.
  • It's not as bad as it may sound. We're used to it and we're family. We camp close and we share. I've met most of my best friends this way!
  • I'll be there when you arrive at Gulf so make sure to check in when you arrive and I'll help you find space for your camp.
  • Safe trip and see you there!
