The setup:

Norway. 939 A.D.

Jarl Olafir the Swineherd of the Svartrsung sends word to all the scattered farmsteads.

Jarl Brynjar One-Eye of the Gunnardung has challenged the clans to a great contest at his mighty hall Seggrhalla, by the little coastal town of Fiskrfjordr. Over the course of three days, teams will compete in running, spear-throwing, glima (wrestling), riddles, archery, hnefatafl (board games), lausatök (team unarmed combat), poetry, and hunting. All participants must compete in all contests. Nine finely-worked armbands of pure gold will be awarded. Their names are “Shining”, “Precious”, “Treasure”, “Freya’s Hair”, “Beautiful”, “Wonderful”, “Winding”, “Desire” and “Hero’s Portion”.

The Svartrsung have seen better days. You are proud descendants of Svartr Foe-Burster, trusted huscarl to Harold Fairhair, King of Norway. But today you are a small and unimportant family, doggedly hanging on to what remains of their ancestral territory. More powerful clans than yours plan to take those rings for their own glory. The Gunnardung, rich and powerful Vikings and traders. The Skogralfings, who carve their farmsteads out of the dark forest. The dour Halvordung of the frozen uplands. The islander Kjeldings, those lovers of the oar, whose eyes turn always to the sea.

Volunteers of good Svartrsung blood are to assemble at Jarl Olifir’s hall, Spjǫrheimili, on the first day of Sólmánuður, in the height of summer.

PCs are built on 200 points with no supernatural or cinematic abilities or disadvantages, or exotic backgrounds. This is a tale of Scandinavian warriors and their bonds of family.

Sorry to do this just as we're actually starting, but I just had a death in the family, and I'll be away for a week. I'll have internet connection during that time, but probably won't have the mental energy to post much, if at all.

I'm so terribly sorry. If there's anything we can do to accommodate you, please let me know.

My very best wishes to you and your family.

I'll work on getting my character on the wiki. Made some minor changes to the stats. Any particular direction you want us to take with our intros in the IC thread, or should we just go for it?

When your character enters the scene (either by showing up at the doorway or being in the hall already), please include a brief physical description.

Sorry - the Jarl is "Olafir", not "Olifir".

It is spelled "os lagu ac feoh is rad - "Olafir"
