The Barony of Starkhafn invites you to its anniversary celebration. Despite his valiant efforts, the powerful Heimdallr was unable to fend off the jötnar during Ragnarok! We beseech the warriors, artisans, youth, and the experienced of all the realm, to cross the Bifröst and lend us your assistance in support of Heimdallr’s noble battle to protect the gateway between Midgard and Asgard. Garb yourself in the many festive colours of the Bifröst and join us as Starkhafn celebrates our 37th Anniversary!

Come challenge the jötnar and vie for the baronial championships in armoured, rapier, archery, thrown weapons and youth combat. Artisans come share your body of work in arts & sciences; the winner will be titled Flame Artisan.

The Starkhafn Quintivium is taking place this year. To become the Quintivium Champion, one must participate in 5 of the champion events, one from each of the following categories throughout the day: armoured, rapier, archery, thrown weapons and arts & sciences. The participant who scores highest overall will be the new Quintivium Champion.

Lastly, as the light of day fades, the fires will be lit to illuminate the evening’s competitors where a new Bard of Starkhafn will be chosen from those who share their talents to delight the muses and the gathered Bifröst victory celebrants

Feast Menu
