The Shire of Border Downs is located within the Kingdom of Northshield.

The shire was established in the early 1990's and includes the Sioux Falls metro area and portions of SW Minnesota.

Fighter practices happen twice a week and usually also include some other impromptu activities and socializing. Arts and other activities happen on a more random schedule throughout the year.

The local group hosts at least one larger event a year and a couple of more casual get togethers. We have hosted many large kingdom events and have hosted an ongoing inter-kingdom war.
