Storvik Baronial Birthday

The Barony of Storvik invites you to join our caravan as we set sail in search of distant lands to find our new Baronial Champions. The day?s activities will be centered around a caravan theme that will continue into the evening with feasting, gaming, entertainment, dancing and music - both European and Middle Eastern - lasting far into the night.

Martial Activities: Heavy fighting will start off with a Viking Arm-bound Tourney celebrating our past, moving on to the Orient with a non-sword and shield tourney, and finishing the day off with a Champions battle with the one side defending our hilltop caravan from marauding invaders. For rapiers, the day will start off with a slagger battle, followed by a woods battle, and ending in a day of open field fighting. Archers will be shooting at a variety of targets to show their prowess with the bow and crossbow throughout the day. The Atlantian Cavalry will be onsite with a variety of equestrian activities.

A&S: There will be a variety of competitions complementing our caravan theme including: Medieval tarot cards, foods that would have been eaten while on a caravan, and one for any A&S that would or could have been done by travelers. There will also be a medicinal cordial competition sponsored by Lord Michel von Schonsee and a scroll competition using a caravan theme sponsored by the Kingdom Scribe, Baroness Julianna Fiorentini. In addition, there will a variety of classes held throughout the day as well as a display of Storvik?s history throughout the years and an Open Display of projects either completed or in the works.
