The Court of His Majesty Siegfried, King of Uberheim
At Sokkvabekk, January 8, 1999
I would like to thank everyone who has braved the malevolent workings of the Goddess Skadi, the Goddess of Winter, for braving it through this spaceagedly horrific weather
Yes, I'm going to have a talk with her!
I'd like to thank Lady Saga for autocrating quite a sturdy event, and all I can say for the feast, Vivat!
The court and crowd take up the cheer
Once again, congratulations on a very successful and sturdy event, as well as the co-autocrating of Heimdall...
Here the king is interrupted by Odin
No, he left her hanging! I don't want to hear it
No, no, Heimdall was very helpful once he did arrive!
Amid protests from Heimdall and laughter from the court, business continues
Sturdy feast, sturdy souls assembled before us, sturdy games. What can I say, it's Uberheim! Uberheim lurks. The sturdiest of souls made it here tonight. Thanks to everyone for arriving and making this an Uberevent.
Vivat for Everyone!
All cheer Vivat
And on that note of the sturdiness of tonight's events and competitors, I'd like to call Lady Saga
Lady Saga enters and is recognized
If my lord Heimdall would please call forth the winners.
The court calls forth Thor, God of Thunder! [ Winner of the Arm-Wrestling Competition]
Thor enters and is recognized. He kneels before Lady Saga.
My lord Thor. Your prowess and strength have been proved once again. You are an invaluable asset to us. And as you do not drink, I found something else that perhaps you might enjoy.
Lady Saga presents him with a box of chocolate-covered cherries
A box of cherries!
The court laughs and cheers
Three vivats for Thor!
The crowd cheers Vivat.
Lord Magni steps forward and addresses Thor
I suppose the court would recognize [Lord] Magni!
Speaking of your cherries, I would like to challenge you at another time.
Thor embraces his son and accepts the challenge
Next, the court would like to call forth Grokk [Winner of "Pin the Mistletoe on Baldr"]
Grokk enters and is recognized. He kneels before Lady Saga.
It's amazing. He's on his knees and he's still as tall as the king!
Laughter and jests erupt
Your participation in my game was excellently done. Not only did you win by being the most accurate, but you showed a sense of fun which I really appreciate. And by beating out Hodr, you have kept Ragnarok from our door! Baldr is still with us and we are most pleased! Please accept these chocolates.
She hands him a box
Three vivats for Grokk!
The crowd cheers Grokk. He withdraws
Finally, the court would like to call Raven [Winner of the Bardic Competition].
Raven enters after some seaching and a great deal of speculation upon the part of the court...
My lady Raven. Your poetry, your voice, and your wit are much appreciated in this kingdom. We all enjoyed it very much. We hope that you will continue, and please accept these caramels which are as sweet, and dark, as you.
Three vivats for the musical stylings of Lady Raven!
The crowd cheers Raven
I'd like to thank everyone for participating tonight, braving the elements, and I hope that you had a wonderful time, because I really enjoyed having you here.
Vivats for Lady Saga!
The crowd cheers Lady Saga.
Next, the court would like to call Prince Sir Fafnir. I believe you have several things to bring before the court.
Prince Sir Fafnir enters and is recognized
HRH Sir Fafnir:
First I would like to tell everyone about an event I'm having, in case you haven't all heard about it. January 30, the Ice Follies. I will try to keep the snow to a minimum, but I can't promise to do much about the cold. I am a Frost Giant!
At the event, there are going to be three tourneys. They are the most important tourneys anywhere in Uberheim: The Spirit of Uberheim, the Queen's Champion, and the Archdukedom of Antwerp. There is also going to be a foot-race, in which case, the person who wins it gains the title "The North Wind", (which is why I told the story) [ Here he refers to telling the story of Thor's journey to Jotunheim in the Bardic Circle earlier that evening] Each year we ask the person who has won said title to defend it.
On a second note, me and [Prince] Sir Rudiger, are working on two different things. We are doing a LARP for ICON, and we are going to need all the Uberites' help. All of the idiots who sign up for the event are going to be the PC's. We are going to be the NPC's and beat them up. The main theme is that Timmendequast is attacking Midgard; we have to help them defend it.
Second point. At March Madness there are going to be a couple of skits being done. We are going to bring forth the Uber-version of Jerry Springer. Prince Sir Rudiger, please stand up.
Prince Sir Rudiger stands and takes a bow
He is going to portray the part of "Rudi Springer".
The crowd cheers
Tyr, please stand up.
Lord Tyr does so, amid cheers
He is going to be Steve. We have a couple of ideas. The skits so far are "I Was a Teenage Wookiee", "Giants and the Women Who Love Them", "Gods and the Incestuous Relationships They Have", "The God of Thunder and His Preoccupation with Giant Foreskins". All those people who have the ability to write funny skits, we need you to come forward and help us write them. If you guys could help us write up the skits we would all appreciateit, so that by March we can have it all planned. We have one funny scene involving Thor and his preoccupation with giant foreskins, in which of course, Steve has to get between Thor and Fafnir when they're rolling around on the ground.
And with that, I hope you all had a wondeful night. I thank you.
Fafnir withdraws amid applause
And with that, the court would like to call Lady Rossweise.
She enters and is recognized
For all those who know, and those who don't, there is a chivalry meeting on the 16th at 7pm in the Uber-room which all the squires are required to attend.
Prince Sir Rudiger, I believe you have something to bring?
Prince Sir Rudiger:
Yes, as always!
At Odin's reprimand he makes his obeisance before the king
Fafnir, being a Frost Giant tends to freeze-dry everything and needs a little additive. I don't have a date for Midgard Madness as of yet, but hopefully it will be the first or second week of March, just so people have a clue as to what's going on.
Again, we need to get started on those skits by February so we can start practicing...
And ICON is when?
The 9th, 10th, and 11th of April.
And we need everyone to come down, especially the people with names because you will have parts
Names and titles.
Anyone who knows that they can help, please get it to me...
We have to have to it before Tuesday because we are going to down to see the ICON people...
A lot of random discussion goes on here. See their Highnesses Fafnir and Rudiger for more detail.
The chant goes up "Mighty Wotan!" and "Wotan Clan!"
Ice Follies will be the event for Uberheim's first Grand Court. We strongly encourage the garb to be to the extreme; banners if you can; this is going to be our biggest court yet. We are talking about 4 years of back-pay that is going to be given out. We finally going to be catching up on all the awards and accolades that are due to everyone, so we expect to everyone to be there. On a note as far as the membership fees are concerned: we had originally had at $24 a year or $4 a month. We have changed that. It is $24 a year pays your membership, you get your handbook, you get access to the courts and all of that. If you don't wish to pay that's fine. You don't get your handbook, and there will be a $5 charge over and above any event fee when you attend an event. Those of you who can't big-up on the $24 you don't have to, you'll have to pay the event fee plus $5. However, anyone who holds any crown or title must pay their $24 by the 1st of March, or they will lose their title or their crown. Second, if you wish to be considered for any of these high awards or titles in the future, you must also have your membership paid up in full. If you have any further questions you may contact myself, or Thor, or petition Heimdall to bring before the Council.
Question, is that $24 going t be pro-rated for March?
If you pay in March you're good 'til March.
Odin, if I may. In other words, if for six months, you're paying $5 per event, and then in July if you decide to pay your membership fees, you'll pay $12.
Named characters as well. Anyone aspiring towards any title, you will not receive that title.
And any award given out in January is subject to this ruling, the award or title will be suspended if the membership isn't paid by March.
Saturday is going to be 2 meals, and Sunday we are going to Sizzler for the all you can eat breakfast.
The event starts at 11, the site set-up, which includes anyone who intends to brave the weather with a tent, must be there to be there to set up at 10am.
However you can do it the day before. I'm going to need the council to come to my place to set up the place where they want to everyone. This way there's no problems.
There's a chivalry meeting that Friday at 7pm.
Also, there is going to be a sort of Uber-SCA event on the 23rd which Hagen is feastocrating. I'm not sure of the details...
If you want details you can contact Hagen or Surtur...
Those of you who need email addresses... www.hotmail.com
On a word as far as email and Uberhiem communications; if you don't have a computer you can go to the public library and get free internet accounts. I am declaring Hotmail the official sponsor of Uberheim. [If you do not have email you] need to get a hotmail account as soon as possible.
Absolutely last now, Lady Saga!
Lady Saga enters and is recognized
I have one more thing to say, and that is that I hope that everyone, if don't already have a golden cup, will take one. The reason why I chose that as an event medallion is because the golden chalice is the symbol of Saga. Sokkvabekk is the hall where the Goddess Saga lives in Asgard (yes that's what that word is and why I use it!) and everyday she and Odin meet there and they drink form these goden cups which presumably contain some sort of Mead of Poetry, or Mead of History... Every source is different, and they don't specify exactly what it is, but the golden cups are my symbol, and I have a Coat of Arms forthcoming which features the golden cup.
Ok, good, well, I guess that's it. Everyone, thank you for attending.
The crowd cheers vivat
This closes the court of Lady Saga's event, and safe travels on your way back to your homes.
