Shire of Olympus
It laid close to the midpoint of Chicago, IL and Omaha, NE. Olympus was founded by Francois Antonio di Vini and Skrag soon after Spring War X, and the first Olympus Battlegame was on March 23rd, 2003. The chapter was originally started in Mt. Vernon, IA, and pulled in many students from the Cornell College campus. After a couple years, attendance was mainly coming from Cedar Rapids and Iowa City, and thus an Althing vote changed the location of the park to Cedar Rapids. Roughly a year later, the populace decided to rotate every other week between Cedar Rapids and Iowa City.
Olympus was elevated to Barony status during the second Crown Quals Tournament of the Principality of the Rosetta Pact during January 2006. In January of 2007, Olympus was elevated to Duchy status during the fourth Crown Quals/Coronation event of the Principality of the Rosetta Pact. Olympus was the flagship Duchy for the Principality of Olympus from its formation on April 20th 2008 until December 11th 2011, when the populous voted withdraw from its namesake principality.
Olympus ceased meeting in July 2014 due to differences in personality. In August 2014 the chapter was demoted to shire posthumously following the Imperial Audit.
