Mighty fighters, knight, squires, marshals, nobles and others.
Welcome to Uma's fighter practice on a slightly greater scale!

The plan is to do a mixture of workshops, armoured fighting and discussions.

The event has no requirement for historical clothing or food, clothes and food will only be a necessity to be able to keep thinking, breathing and living fighting. Almost like in Valhalla, only more mosquitoes and an actual shower.

Sir Lief Wolfsonne from Knight's Crossing will be taking requests for workshops closer to the event. If anyone else would like to be in charge of a workshop, warm-up or a discussion then talk to the event stewardess or in the registration form. (See below)

The best entertainers and musicians in the North compete to win the honourable title as "Norrskensbard", where the audience will vote and determine the winner of the title and right to bear the beautiful cloak for a year!

People interested in serving Norra Nordmark as the next bard need to remember that title comes with an obligation to promote the bardic arts, perform at events, and write songs/poems/stories commemorating the people and events in the north.

The competition has four parts.
1) Period Piece: Perform something with historical evidence/reference.

2) Piece in a Period Style: Perform something that you have composed yourself that was inspired by a historical piece or style.

3) Bards’ Choice: Perform either an actual historical piece, or something that you have composed yourself in a historical style, in a language that is not your native language. This cannot be a language you have used in other parts of the competition; it has to be a new one.

4) Three Words out of a Hat: Pull three words from a hat on site, write something in 15 minutes, and perform the result.

- general
Each performance can contain music, singing, poetry and/or storytelling.
One cannot perform a piece more than once during this competition.
