Inter-College War (ICW) is an annual SCA event in Lochac at which all the Colleges of the kingdom meet for 4 days of camping (well actually indoors bunkhouses are usually provided), war, drinking, fighting, drinking, feasting, drinking, fighting, tomfoolery... etc. Each year a different University hosts ICW, and it's generally held during the midsemester break - perfect timing for the middle of winter! It can be a very amusing event, very rowdy, and tons of fun. To give you some idea, think of a large congregation of university students from all across Australia in garb and armour attempting to recreate pre-16th century, ultimately resulting in much entertainment, new friends, incriminating photos and an extraordinary hangover.

ICW began in June A.S. XXIX (1994), as a challenge between St Aldhelm and St Ursula during "The Defense of The Realm", an event held at the Crossroads site in Torlyon.
