Shire of Ranaan
The Ranaan Shire was founded in September 1999, after a meeting in England of some brave knights. The name was drawn from a small castle in the Holy Land that has his own legend (about how to conquer a castle with 10 people where 10,000 already failed). The spelling was a little changed from the original, due to being very hard pronounce. The four-pointed star was taken from an Italian church built in 1350.
From the very first event the shire always had 90+% of heavies forming the group (yes, you undestood correctly: 9 heavies and 1 lady) and complementary wine. The shire has had many events and everytime all the visitors were happy. Three of them have permanently moved to Italy (one got married).
