Event details

As the nights draw longer and the cold sets in it is considered tradition to join among the fire and tell stories.  We sing songs, hold hands, and give words to the thoughts within our hearts; all in the hope that the long nights will become shorter and the sunlight will grow hot.

In the middle of these long nights, our imaginations run.  We speak of spectres from the past, of myths, legends, and the creatures that walk under the moon and stars.  We give voices to the things we see and hear, but cannot reason.

For Deck the Halls of Valhalla, we invite all bards to tell us their best winter themed stories.  Speak to us of your own spectres, creatures, myths and legends to entertain us in the long night.

This year our Viceregents and Bardic Champion will be judging on several parameters for the competition.  Two winners will be chosen from the competition:  best populace performance and the new Ostgardr Bardic Champion.

Ostgardr's Perez ben Meir Gershon has compiled a cookbook for the event:
