The Shire of Dark Oasis

History

Dark Oasis was founded as a shire under Golden Plains in Events in 1997, with help of Syr Syko, Sir Warchylde and Nine Willows of Golden Plains. It was named the Stronghold of Dark Oasis to act as a military outpost between the Kingdom of Golden Plains and the Kingdom of Dragonspine.

After a few years and much help and work from it's core members and Nine Willows, Dark Oasis reached Barony status. Since then it has become the home of many assorted Amtgard personalities, from fighters to roleplayers and everything in between.

Through the years it has had its ups and downs. It has lost core working members and even its records to only have other members step up to the plate and help it survive with the changing times. It has housed as many members as 70 at one time and has fallen to as little as 10. In late 2009 it was promoted to the first County of the Golden Plains with the help of its core members and many others through out the Kingdom. Dark Oasis was promoted to Duchy status on January 9, 2011.

Currently, The Stronghold fields members many of Golden Plain's fighting companies such as the Archangels, Dark Riders, Legion of the Black Cross, Nighthawks, and Unseen Hand. Many households currently call Dark Oasis home as well including Amalgam, House Girlscouts, House Ironfist, La Cosa Nostra, Legacy, House Shen Ku, and Wolf Riders.
