Kingdom of Atlantia
A magnificent day is coming where will welcome our new King Dietrich von Stroheim, a fierce warrior and leader and his bold Queen Thora Heri, the strength and beauty of Valhalla. It will be a day filled with activities honoring our new majesties with fighting, feasting and celebration.
Martial Activities: Lots!! A Valhalla Tourney will be held for heavy and rapier fighting, where the slain will be selected by Valkyries to fight on a team for Odin or Freya in a field battle after the tourneys are complete. There will be a King’s Cut and Thrust Champion Tourney where the final combatants will face his majesty to determine the winner.
Arts & Sciences Activities: 1. Their Highnesses have requested that we pay homage to the Odin and Freya with our arts and sciences. Use creativity and ingenuity to create and document an entry relating to these deities. Documentation requested (because I like to learn new things) but not required. There will be a prize!
