The Nonprofit group that governs the Meleeworld is Fury Concepts.
Fury was founded in 1997. Back then they were doing mock combat trials at festivals, concerts and renaissance faires. Over time the founders brought their local Sports LARP chapter back from near collapse by offering organization and codifying the (until then) word of mouth rules into tangible printed rulebooks.
In 2005, Fury Concepts became a nonprofit corporation. Working to promote education of the worldwide cultural history from 3000 BC to 1650 AD, the company continued to support various Sports Reenactment groups across the midwest.
Today Fury continues to help sports reenactment organizations by providing a kingdom and county structure and by promoting the Meleeworld line of rulebooks and community.
