"Between Saturday, June 26, 2004, 7PM EDT and Sunday, June 27, 2004, 8AM EDT, members of Autumn Tree Productions, which includes ATACC, ATJ and GBU, were the victims of theft. In the darkness of night, someone went into the joust camp and staging area of the Vermont Renaissance Faire and stole approximate $4000 worth of armored and stage combat weapons, garb, armor and tools. When possible, we will try to add pictures of the stolen items. We're searching archive photos and video for images we can use here. Please keep checking back for updates. Most of these items are irreplaceable, being custom made for their owners, sometimes by their owners. Please keep on the lookout and send any information you may have to or The items stolen primarily belonged to Scott Rodlin, Stephen Pasker and Henry Arrendando.

This is not a joke, this is not a prank, this is theft. When we find the thief, they will be prosecuted. The faire community is small and these weapons are easy to spot. We have lots of eyes helping us. Please help spread the word among re-enactment groups, eBay, LARPs, the SCA and whereever you think is appropriate. But more than anything else, we'd like to thank everyone at the Vermont Renaissance Festival who have helped us in our time of need and given us support. In particular, we'd like to thank the following:

Mattew Parkinson of MP Metalworks who fasioned a spear head in less than an hour

Carl Von Sussen of Von Sussen Enterprises who donated a dagger to GBU Jim Brule of The Vermont Renaissance Faire cast (who loaned us several of his personal weapons)

Thank you, you will not be forgotten."
