The Shire of Polderslot likes to invite you all to our yearly Knick Knack event. But be aware! We've heard rumors that Knick Knack will be invaded by the Vikings this year! So, go fetch your bull's horn and your bead necklace and come in your best Viking outfit to our lovely Shire of Polderslot.
The vikings are best known for their battles, so a Viking event wouldn't be a Viking event whitout a fighting contest to find out who is the bravest, strongest and most resourcefull fighter in the kingdom! BUT, as we will build some mythical element into this contest, this will not be your ordinary everyday fighting contest.
