“What is a Norse court without a skald?” asked Prinz Logan and Prinzessa Ylva.
At the Valor/Bardic Bedlam event, eight weeks after Their ascension to the thrones, the royal couple will hold a skald competition.
They request a story/poem/song/other depicting the glory of a particular person, group, or the Calontir army in general at Lilies War or Pennsic... or some other event that occurred between Crown Tourney and Valor (inclusive). A Norse style is mandatory.
Some “documentation” is a plus, either written or spoken, explaining the historical basis for the piece, but it needn't be in great depth.
Truth is optional. Exaggeration is expected.
The winner shall be named Skald of Their Majesties' court, will likely be asked to perform the piece several times during Their reign, and might be asked to sit with Them in court a time or two, on a cushion or stool.
