THE FESTIVAL OF THE TROLLS
Hosted by Ulich on November 28, 1998
The Court of Their Majesties Siegfried and Hella, King and Queen of Uberheim
First of all, I would like to welcome you all to this event, hosted by Ulich, The festival of the Trolls. We are very happy to see all of you assembled here. There is business before the court as per Odin, Ruler of Asgard.
The court calls Lady Sigyn.
Lady Sigyn steps forward and is recognized by the court.
For those of you who were not present, Lady Sigyn was presented as [a candidate for] the goddess of debauchery and perversion. Apparently there was a clerical error, her persona was correct, but the name wasn’t. Tonight I strip her of the name of Sigyn, and I present her with her true name. From this night forth, let it be known, that she is now [the candidate for the role of] the goddess Syn. For Syn, three Vivats!
The crowd acknowledges Lady Syn
Prince Dancwart speaks:
The court calls Grond the Red.
The crowd takes up the chant of "Grond, Grond" as that gentle approaches and is recognized.
As you know, I am ever in search of mortals to join the Legion of Thunder. You have proven yourself worthy to be my high priest.
As Odin the Alfather, I give my blessing to this empowerment, and ask you to state your oath of allegiance to Thor the God of Thunder.
Grond swears his solemn oath, and the marks of his office are given
For Grond, the High Priest of the Legion of Thunder, three Vivats!
The crowd acknowledges Grond.
The court calls Raven, Dark Valkyrie.
Raven approaches and is recognized.
I am a knight of this realm, and as such I am in need of a squire. You are a Valkyrie, and that does me honor. I ask you to be my squire.
Do you pledge your life service to the kingdom and to Thor? As Valkyrie, you must perform the duties of that office. However, when you are not performing those duties, you are his. As a knight of the realm, [to Thor] she is yours to protect, serve, and train to the honor of the bond between a knight and his squire. Again I ask you both, do you both accept this?
Upon becoming a squire, you will wear a chain. Hagen will explain the chain.
Sir Hagen, Warlord of Uberheim, speaks:
This is the chain of a squire, a chain of many links, as are the links to duty and service to the kingdom. This is a chain without end, as is service to the knight and the kingdom.
The chain is presented to Raven
You will also wear a belt as a squire. Prince Dancwart will explain the belt.
The belt is red, a squire’s belt of red, to symbolize the blood that the squire is willing to shed in fealty to their knight.
The belt is presented to Raven
Do you wish to swear an oath? Then swear it.
Although my to duty is to Lord Loki, I swear my fealty to my knight as his squire, to Thor God of Thunder.
For the newest squire of Uberheim, three Vivats!
The crowd acknowledges Raven, Dark Valkyrie and Squire to Thor
Be there any further business before His Majesty Siegfried and Her Majesty Hella, King and Queen of Uberheim? Then this court is closed.
For the Crown, three Vivats!
The crowd lauds the King and Queen.
They process out.
After court, Lady Syn presented Prince Dancwart with a card from the subjects of the kingdom, and a cake in honor of His Highness’s birthday
