And for a brief time 2 potential uberites:
Special Mention to SCPD Officer #308 at Antwerp whom was very cool & brought our spirits up;He definitely has an open invite to Uberheim..
Twas a cold morning on February 19th whilst all was coated in a 1/4 inch thick shell of ice.A wintersturm is still raging raining frozen ice upon the lands.We arrived at Antwerp alas and the Gates were closed due to the weather..We asessed the situation and then decided our next best option was Heckscher state park Field #4 (The location of the original rallies)..
The alternative turned out to be superior to Antwerp as there was a large pavillion and BBQ/Fire pits available for use..We promptly settled in and set camp,lit a bonfire,assembled banners and whatnot.The skies above were grey and relentlessly spewing freezing rain which only spured on the courage of the valiant fighters.
We also received many new glorious members as well as on this day including Jerry (aspiring Dwarf) & Loni (Aspiring minion of Hella) of Karaoke fame at Mugs pub!.As Alberich tended the Bonfire the "King & Queen of Love" (Uberheim's Valentine Day Champion) Tourney began.Fighters & Marshals included: Prince Sir Thor,Grand Duke Sir Hagen,Warlord Sir Rudiger,Master Dankwert,Sir Fafnir,Squire Uller,Lord Roland, & Stellerex.
The combatants fought hard and determined,and when the fury of the combat subsided;Mighty Thor stood victorious.We rounded ourselves up and headed of as a caravan to the feasting hall.
When i arrived i was pleasantly suprised to see a spacious and warm Hall awaiting..The Banners hung high and gloriously,the Aesthetics were uber,and the candles burned bright..As i entered i was greeted with even greater joy,Thor;whom i have entrusted with a monumental task has finally completed it.The task of which i speak is the assembling of a full suit of platemail armour in which Thor & his Squire Uller outfitted me in before the feast.Alberich,Nidhogg & Rudiger brought in tray after tray of the feast food which began with an appetizer buffet of various cheeses,Bread & UberHoney butter,melons,salads and such.Lord Volker (one of the original lurkers from the days of the film project) sat as an honored guest at high table as other Uberites snacked and caroused untill the Main Feast was brought forth.There was a Spiced Roast,Roast Beef,Glazed Ham,Spiced Chicken,Basted Potatos,Baked Potatos,Green Beans,Corn,honey butterand many other Tasty foods served.There was plently for all as all filled quenched appetite and thirst to their hearts desire with much leftover!..Master Dankwert graced the Hall with his Bardic presentation of "Glory" as Alberich (Whom is also Court Jester) ran hilariously funny lurks all evening..Dessert was served as Royal Court Began,Many fruits,cakes,cookies,and the OhSoooo Heavenly Saga Brownies were served.
Court began with a brief opening by myself and a Toast to the Auto/feasto-crats of this very glorious and very successful 1st Uber-attempt at utilizing a Hall!..As if the Day was not perfect enough....The Norns Saga & Skuld whom arduosly and skillfully volunteered their Arts & Sciences efforts in the name of this Great Kingdom unveiled the fruits of their labor.The Kingdom Emblem Banner!!.The Uberheim Emblem banner was made from the Best of materials and meant to stand gloriously as our Highest Standard of unity & Honor for many years to come!..The Thunder god was called into court to accept the passing on of the tourney crown for the Valentines day championship honor of "King of Love" as he graced his lovely lady Sif with the Rose adourned crown of "Queen of Love".
This "Tourney crown" for the Valentine event battle was conceived in 1999 and will be an annual tradition from here forth in Uberheim.
Squire Uller was victorious in 1999 and held the crown for a years time untill this day,whence he fought honorably to retain it but hence was defeated by his Knight..Thor called in his Household of the Hammer "The Legion of Thunder" Whom all looked impressive in the New Taberds fashioned for his order by Goddess Saga.. Thor chose to squire a sturdy & able young man whom we all know as Roland..The Legion of Thunder placed an Oath upon Mjollnir and prepared for the ceremony.The Knights'Rudiger & Fafnir were called into court with the squires belt and chain to explain the significance of each.Roland requested the High honor of receiving the accolade as a display of loyalty to his Knight.. With a thunderous thud of great strength,Thor placed the accolade from his fist to the good squires' shoulder.With that blow,Squire Roland begins his long road to aspiring toward chivalry.
Marlineus was called into court for a a zany & Satirical bardic presentation based upon the melody of modern popular songs this one being a Filk of "Living La Vida Loca" now Living "La vida Uber!".. (Marlineus if you read this you may want to post the Lyrics)..This Hilarious Bardic lurk closed off the court for the evening on a happy note.Cleanup ensued and was effecient..A fresh snow covered the grounds as we exited the Hall,All were in Good spirits,The Autocrats were exhausted!,and Kingdom moral was High!...
We expect to endeavor more halls in the future.
Myself,Rossweisse,Hella,The Mighty mighty mighty Fafnir & Jerry & Loni outlurked to an Afterlurk at Duval Street Pub till the A.M. Hours to revel.
p.s. Owen if invisibility is a craft,why dont i know it?
