The Valkyrie Event
Brunhilde's Flashback started off as a wonderfully rainy day and as Siegfried and I pulled into the Great River Train Station parking lot, only Katarina was there (at 11:45am) waiting for us. By around 1 or 1:30 we had enough lurkers to run a ranking tourney, the results of which are:
Rudiger - 17 wins 3 points of Chivalry
Rossweisse - 13 wins 2 points of Chivalry
Stellarex - 9 wins 1 point of Chivalry
Fafnir - 8 wins 2 points of Chivalry
Vermithrax - 5 wins
All the fighters turned in a wonderful performance! And a special Autocrats 'Vivat' to those who were legged fighting on the lovely cold, hard, wet surface of the parking lot!
Next off, we ran an Etin battle (the two-headed monster lurk)
Our first, and longest lasting, Etin was Fafnir and Rudiger who faired rather well against a team of Stellarex, Vermithrax, and Rossweisse. Defeating them in one battle before being taken in another.
After this, the rain had stopped, and we decided to run a lurk onto the lands. Siegfried, Hela, Zrean, Katarina and Rossweisse lurked for about 1 and a half hours all around Proper, even lurking into the Arboretum before being forced to turn back due to some serious rumblings in our bellies accompanied by thoughts of Carapace!
Rossi's Revel (the afterlurk and feast)
Our very own Dragon (Pete)
(if there are any that I forgot, I apologize)
Siegfried ran lurks of heinous proportions aided by his "Charlie's Angels". Sucessfully cleaning out tray after tray of carapace as the Ming Yung chef cursed mightily in the kitchen! All manner of lurks were run upon the snax provided by our unwilling hosts, much to their dismay. Once again, the attempts at limiting our lurks with a 3 piece only sign were thwarted by the line of Uberites that appeared every time a new tray was brought out to transport their tasty prizes to our King.
After the feast, many outlurked to Odin's Palace to view the grand re-opening of this favorite lurk spot. Fafnir provided a sturdy fire barrel and plenty of fuel for our Uber camp fire. A short court was held in which was announced Vermithrax is now the sole creator of Coats of Arms for the kingdom, Rossweisse has been appointed treasurer of the Realm, Odin's event "Return to Valhalla" was announced to be held on November 24th through the 26th (all money must be in by THIS WEDNESDAY), and general announcements were made about the days events. Following court, the group outlurked to the backyard where Uller and Stellarex had created a mighty fire for us to run our sumble and revelry around (with the aid of some space-age Duralogs). Siegfried ran a pre-sumbel invocation to Loki which was concluded with a rather spectacular offering to the fire god by way of JD and the campfire (you figure it out!). Vermithrax opened the sumbel in his first acting Gothi appearance with sturdy words and a nod to Freya (the goddess of the Valkyries). Many sturdy words were spoken and much drinking was done! All in all a good time was had by all. The night was closed out in typical Uberheim fashion with Siegfried unceremoniously dowsing the fire with a GIANT bucket of water in a drunken oggle! A perfect ending to a perfectly informal event!
I would like to thank all that came out and enjoyed the day. I'm hoping to make next year's endeavor AT LEAST as much fun! And I would like to thank you all for making this - by our standards anyway - an oggle free event! :o)
