The Kingdom of Akron is a medieval-fantasy group and Dagorhir chapter that is based in Metropolitan Detroit, Michigan. We have a satellite part of our chapter in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and loyal brothers- and sisters-at-arms throughout the country.
We recreate a fantasy version of the middle ages, participating in competitive medieval combat with padded “boffer” weapons. We handcraft chainmaile and leather armor. We sew and wear garb that would be appropriate on the sets of both fantasy films like the Lord of the Rings and historical films like Braveheart. If you’ve ever wanted to wade into combat against a horde of orcs, do battle to free Britain from the Roman oppressors, or fight in a gladiator ring – and do it all without the unfortunate side effect of potential death – this is what you have been waiting for. If the Kingdom of Akron sounds interesting to you, feel free to check us out. We have Dagorhir practices most weeks, where you can meet some of our members and learn more about what we do.
