    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.

    There is going to be an animal sacrifice, through which we are going to call our gods and the gods of our guests, if they so wish. This beautiful ceremony will be a cooperation of the Gothi and the Völva, and our guests are invited to participate at any level they feel comfortable with.

    After the ritual there will be refreshments, music and dance, and possibly a performance of the skaldic arts.

    All participants get to take home a limited edition sheet music and a book with a mythological tale.


    Time: Saturday, June 29, 4pm
    Location: Norstead
    (District of Hammaburg)
    Contact: Jay Nord or Helvig Ingvildsdottir

    OOC information

    About the roleplay
    This is a heavy RP event. Everyone is welcome as long as they are not disruptive to others' roleplay. You can participate as heavily as you wish, or merely observe. It's surely a good occasion to get in touch with other immersive RPers.

    About the location
    Norstead is a Viking village in the player owned town Hammaburg.

    Directions
    Hammaburg is a POT near Brittanny. Cross the central bridge and immediately go right, uphills. There you will find the Viking village of Norstead.

    Just wanted to say, I'm unlikely to be there since neither of my characters have travelled as far as Brittany yet (or have Viking backstories), but I'm so glad you're doing things like this. Already looking forward to the third annual, when perhaps I can be there without being OOC.

    Reminder: This is today.

    For RP purposes: There are flyers laying around in shops in all major towns, advertising the event. If your character is short of a reason to participate and you would like to, send me a whisper and we'll figure something out.

    While tomorrow's event in Kahli (open PvP, no ransom) will have the bigger games and bigger prizes, there will be small games with prizes today as well. And just showing up will secure you a special limited edition sheet music and a special print of volume V of Helvig's books about the Norse gods and giants, telling the humorous tale of Thor's wedding.

    Jay and I and many others who helped to make this event possible are looking forward to seeing you all there. Strangers are just friends you haven't met.

    The gods favored us this evening. The thunder, and then the fog, timed incredibly to enhance the ritual of the Blot! Looking forward to symbel tomorrow!
