    "It is is Midsummer! Hail! A time of happiness and prosperity before the coming dark. We must hold blot and honor all of the gifts The Holy Powers bestow upon us, ask them to continue to give us such gifts, and give them our own. Gifts must always be given one to the other, as it has always been and as it must always be!"


    Helvig Ingvildsdottir and Jay Nord are inviting you to attend their Midsommarblot on June 23rd, at 3pm CST in Littlecreek in the Hidden Vale.

    With this blot we want to honor the gods we brought with us from our old lives in Midgard. Attendants of all religious views that are tolerant and open-minded are welcome. There will be opportunity during the blot where you can call upon your own deities.

    A blot is a ritual during which we sacrifice to the Old Norse gods, and experience community. There will be a feast, a lot of alcoholic drinks, music and dance following the sacrifice.

    (OOC info: This is a RP-heavy event. We expect every participant to make an effort to roleplay and keep OOC talk/talk about real life to whispers or party chat. Everyone that is willing to make this effort is cordially welcome, and if you have not interacted with us before, this is a perfect first time.)

    We got the place for the ritual cleaned and prepared.

    Directions: Littlecreek is a small town near Kingsport in the Hidden Vale. Upon entering the town, go to the Central Bridge. Turn to your left, away from the docks, and head along the creek until you see a viking village home.

    ((Also: Looking for an Aerie Funds Streamathon streamer that would like to stream this event.))

    @Helvig Ingvildsdottir and @Jay Nord -- Thank you both so much for designing, hosting, and directing this event. Aeryk especially appreciated the chance to remember his sister Ari. The backstory for SotA is perfect for these type of things!

    I can't express how grateful I am to everyone that showed up, and roleplayed beautifully, making this one of my most enjoyable evenings in SotA so far. You all were amazing!

    And a special thanks to the eight people that to this hour are still sitting in Jay's front yard, enjoying each other's company with good music and deep conversations.

    I would also like to thank everyone that attended our Midsummer Blot! I enjoyed meeting and interacting with all of you, and hope to do so again in the future.

    It was also a great way for me to close the Littlecreek chapter of my life; I'm moving to a larger lot within the walls of Estgard today :)
