Event details
Fimbulwinter is the darkest of winters, the especially dark, deep, and long lasting one that heralds the end of the Norse Gods.  Please join us as we gather together in our own Long Hall to have an epic feast and tournaments to celebrate our friends and chosen family!  Everyone is considered “On Board.”

We invite all attendees to bring lightweight personal banners or shields to decorate the Long Hall.  They do not need to be Norse or Viking themed.

“Much have I journeyed,
much experienced,
mighty ones many proved. 
What mortals will live,
when the great Fimbulwinter shall from men have passed?"
- Vafþrúðnismál, the Poetic Edda”

.:|For those Martially Inclined|:.
Heavy List Tournament:  To Valhalla!
In a Valhalla tournament, all fighters begin on the field.  They fight in single combat, with defeated fighters leaving the field.  If the person who defeated you is defeated in combat, you return to the field.  Winner is the last fighter on the field (either by defeating each fighter in the list consecutively, or by endurance).

Rapier Tournament -
There will be a Rapier Tournament!  Details TBA.

Thrown Weapons Tournament -
Come for the Royal rounds, stay for the honor!  We will have three targets set up, with loaner gear available.  Open to all skill levels.  More information TBA!

.:|For Non-Combatants|:.
Norse Nine Largess Challenge: 
Each competitor is asked to donate nine individual items for Largess.  These can be nine of all the same item, or nine items on a common theme.  More than nine items will of COURSE be welcome, though more than nine items will not get ‘extra points’.  Documentation is welcome, but not required.  The theme is "Fimbulwinter" or Norse mythology, but please feel free to deviate from that theme as you wish.  All entries will be collected and gifted the day of the Challenge.

Games:
"Tafl", a Norse strategy board game, and "Jomswikinger", which is roughly translated as the "Blind Viking Chest Touch Smash Game," and more will be played.  Do you dare to try?

Bardic:
Calling all Bards!  We are in need of your talent and your enthusiasm!
We are pleased to invite musicians, poets, storytellers, and singers to entertain fellow event-goers with tales of Norse mythology, songs about warriors and great battles, or epic poetry recitation.  Please put the word out and let the Deputy Autocrat know if you would like to perform for us!
