The Ascension of Skuld
Skuld's Festival of the Fates
Kingdom Lands and Antwerp, November 5-6, 1999
Friday evening a select company as per Lady Skuld's wishes gathered at MING YUNG (The Uber-feast hall) to feast and prepare to witness her Ascension.
Later in the evening, King Siegfried drew the life force from this fair maiden using the power of the Ring. As she collapsed to the ground, she was shrouded in a white cloak and her lifeless body was led by the Eternals of the realm to her vigil point in the Ruhr Valley.
From there she was left to ponder her Duty and Aspired Persona as she gazed into the flame of contemplation.
Visitation began after Guards were Posted at the gates. Her visitors offered gifts and words of wisdom to the maiden.
After the lengthy Vigil, the candidate was led off by the Eternals to kneel before Yggdrasil.
The great tree glowed from the awakened fire within.
The Bark of the great tree was offered for the maiden to partake of the essence of the World Ash.
The Milk of Nerthus was then offered to impart within her Re-birth through the Mothers nourishment.
The Water of the Rhine were then offered up in a Drinkhorn. The King spoke first to consecrate the Purpose of the Sacred liquid. This is to bind her to the realm and the realm to she.
The Drinkhorn was passed on clockwise toward the Future that Skuld represents.
Each member of the assembled circle spoke their words to Skuld and sipped the Rhine's cool waters. The Sumbel horn reached Skuld and she spoke her words of commitment to the Kingdom and then sealed her vows with the final quaff.
The King then stood above the kneeling Norn and with the Influence of the Ring of the Nibelung charged the Spirit of SKULD to be reborn into the Candidate. The white shroud was then torn from the maiden Revealing Skuld the Norn of the Future! She stood and was recognized as all cheered!
The procession then marched triumphantly away for a night of revelry anddventure.
On the Next day of Saturday the 6th of November, SKULD autocrated her 1st Uberevent.
We all met at Antwerp to begin the day's Festivities. The King was very pleased with the Showing, as the attendance was Very Impressive.
