The sword swift and honor sure, TRH Jason Kinslae rises before our Kingdom to lay claim to His Rightful Throne. The beloved and beautiful Gerhild the Willful at His side to lead us with grace and courtesy. It will be a day of celebration in blue and yellow to due honor to new monarchs, with homage given to all things Norse. There will be food aplenty with a feast served from Giants. A bardic festivals into the night.
Theme and colors:
The theme for the day will be Norse, norse and more norse. In honor of Their Newly Crowned Majesties the colors of the day will be Blue and Yellow.
At the request of our new King, there will be a Bear Pit Tourney with two pits, the first with weapons of your choice and the other with traditional viking weapons and round Shields. 1 point for loss two points for a win. The rapier tourney will be similar with two pits, the first with weapons of your choice and the other with buckler and weapon.

In addition to the traditional Tempora of Atlanta competition, Queen Gerhild will sponsor a competition of all things Norse with two prizes - one chosen by Her Majesty's choice and the other chosen by the populace vote.
