On a stormy night, oars slap the water, sails stretch tight catching the night wind. On the shore a sleeping village awaits its deadly fate. Long boats slide ever closer. Soon the cries will echo across the land as night turns to day. Smoke clears, longboats sail away heavy in the water, as the Vikings leave with the spoils of the day.
Crystal crags is honored to offer our longest running event, Barbarian Bash XI.
For the artistically inclined there will be numerous classes on many things Norse as well as general SCA (details to follow). For the Barbarian in you we will have many melee battles including boat and village battles (yes a real town)
Shire heavy weapons champion, Ely's Prize tourney, and a torchlight great sword tourney. For the more sophisticated combatants in rapier there will be melee town battles and a prize tourney. Other activities include: Archery competitions, axe throwing, kids' boffer tournament, bardic competition, Best Barbarian competition and our typically insane auction!
