    Jay Nord, the Gothi of Norstead and Helvig Ingvildsdottir, Völva in Helboer, cordially invite you to their second annual Midsommarblot. The Blot is a ritual where we celebrate the seasons, sacrifice to the gods of our original homeland, and experience community. This is a heavy RP event. Everyone is welcome as long as they are not disruptive to others' roleplay.

    Blot and Dance (Saturday, June 29, 4pm NBT, Norstead in Hammaburg)

    On Saturday Afternoon we are going to sacrifice a sheep to our (and, if you want, your) gods in a beautiful ceremony conducted by Gothi Jay Nord and Völva Helvig Ingvildsdottir. After the ritual there will be music, dance, and skaldic entertainment, and refreshments will be served. Every participant gets to take home a limited edition sheet music specially made for the occasion (the Swedish Midsommar hit "Små grodorna") that will never be sold or given away outside of this event, as well as a book with a tale from Norse mythology.


    Symbel and Games (Sunday, June 30, 2pm NBT, Helboer in Kahli)

    On Sunday Afternoon we are going to do a drinking ritual, where we drink to our gods, our ancestors, and our own deeds of grandeur. This is a very interactive roleplay occasion for those that want it, but you can also RP quietly or simply watch. After the symbel, when we all are intoxicated with the 25 y/o whisky that's used for the ritual, there's going to be games, most noteworthy a great treasure hunt. There's going to be prizes!

    Questions are, as always, welcome.

    Count me in! Will you need a new horse after the ritual for your gods?

    People were a little upset about the horse. We will sacrifice something less valuable this time round. A sheep perhaps.

    So looking forward to seeing you there!

    A sheep wandered (or was pushed) into Norstead two days ago. She seems quite happy with the grazing and disinclined to leave.

    Yay! Sheep!

    We're fleshing out the details here. There's going to be a scavenger hunt in Kahli as well as a few smaller games after the ritual. Good times to be had.
