Greetings to all and singular! Gone-a-Viking lately? Why not?! Well here is your chance to make up for lost time! Viking Vinter Vunderland, that crazy, hilarious and silly event is back to cause havoc in the Outlands once again!
Welcome to the event that has no schedule, that has prizes that you fight over to not win and food to fill the belly of even Erik the Red. No matter the weather, no matter the temperature; we will still be out fighting away and warming ourselves with the company of one's friends.

As the far off and distant drums of WAR call to us, many are left to wonder…..Who will plant our crops, take care of our cattle and raise our children while we are away? Who do we trust to pay our ransom should we be in need? Who among our peoples will be left to carry on as the glorious fighters of the Outlands go off to WAR? As any fighter will tell you, those we leave behind are as important as those who fight next to us. Location:

Are you going to be missing something to do on January 13? No more college football and you just can't get into the Wide World of Televised Bowling and Darts (although those trick bowlers are REALLY amazing!)?
Then make the short trip out to hopefully play in the snow at Viking Vinter
Vunderland! This is the only event in the Outlands daring enough to be held
OUTSIDE in January! But, you say, "that must be horribly cold?!" Fear not,

Welcome to Rome, 1497. As you admire the wondrous art and high culture of this, the finest of cities, be sure to watch your back. Intrigue is at its height as noble families vie for prominence. Even the mightiest houses are rocked with scandal. Lucrezia Borgia has accused her husband, Giovanni Sforza, of impotence and is filing for a divorce. In retaliation, Giovanni claims that his young bride has indulged in incestuous affairs with both her brother and her father! But beware of whom you share gossip with. Spies are everywhere in the courts, and the assassin's blade is ever ready to avenge a perceived slight. Location:
