Not to be confused with LARP (Live-Action Role Playing Game), Dagorhir is a fast- paced, full- contact, live-action combat game, where combatants engage each other in battle with foam-padded weaponry and equipment. Fighters typically use foam weapons such as swords, flails, spears, bows and arrows, javelins, axes, and other medieval weapons.

Inspired by J.J.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings", a man named Bryan Wiese wanted something to capture the spirit and adventure of swordsmanship and archery. In 1977, Bryan ran ads on a local radio station. Bryan became known as "Aratar Anfinhir the Stormbringer" and Dagorhir was born.

Weapons began as thick lumps of couch-padding foam duct- taped to sticks. Dagorhir has grown significantly since its initial upbringing nearly 40 years ago, adding rules and regulations as well as more refined weapon builds.

There are a number of national events with the largest being "Ragnarok" averaging about 1,500 participants. Ragnarok originally was held in Cambridge, Ohio from 2001 up until 2009 when the location was moved to Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania.

A local unit out of Ashland called "Ohio Uruk-Hai" participated in last months Ragnarok and are training for their next competition. The unit meets every week at Marshall Park in Ontario to hone their medieval combat skills and also to have a good time.

Members of the Ohio Uruk-Hai travel from all over North Central Ohio to compete with the unit, hand-crafting their own weapons and period attire. WMFD had an opportunity to witness a training session for the unit, getting an inside look at the growing sport.
