[OUT] Quest for Valhalla

The Norse Gods have come to life and are running free through the green hills of al-Barran.

In the ways of the old there will be much to do this summer weekend. A QUEST like no other has been planned for all to enjoy. For those who are all about the fighting there will be a Rapier Tournament, Heavy Tournament as well as an Archery Tournament just in case you thought there would be nothing to do. Along with questing, fighting, and much revelry, there will be a most wondrous feast Saturday evening that will leave no one hungry. There will also be a delicious and helpful brunch served Sunday morning. Please contact the food coordinators below with any allergy concerns.

Heavy Tournament: Holmganga is a traditional Viking style duel. Two Norse warriors would travel out to an island each with 3 shields, a spear, an Axe, and a sword. This bout would be so intense that the warriors would be expected to go through all 3 shields. So pack your armor, DONT FORGET your gauntlets and come out for something different and see how we pull this off SCA style!!!

Bardic: The "No S%@T there I was" bardic is a time for tales of honor and glory and the unbelievable things we see on the battle field. So come out and share your stories of times past
