May the peace of the thing be upon you!!

"We saw thralls, too, in the crowd, and rune-priests, with long hair, in white robes, a spiral ring of gold on their left arms, about their waist a bag of omens chips, pieces of wood soaked in the blood of the sacrificial bosk, slain to open the thing....
In the crowd, too, I saw some merchants, though few of them, in their white and gold. I saw, too, four slavers, perfumed, in their robes of blue and yellow silk, come north to buy women. I saw, by the cut of their robes, they were from distant Turia. Forkbeard’s girls shrank away from them."   Marauders of Gor. Chapter ten

"Most of the men at the thing were free farmers, blond-haired, blue-eyed and proud, men with strong limbs and work-roughened hands; many wore braided hair; many wore talmits of their district; for the thing their holiday best had been donned; all were armed, usually with ax or sword; some wore their helmets; others had them, with their shields, slung at their back....
We saw, too, many chieftains, and captains, and minor Jarls, in the crowd, each with his retinue. These high men were sumptuously garbed, richly cloaked and helmeted, often with great axes, inlaid with gold. Their cloaks were usually scarlet or purple, long and swirling, and held with golden clasps. They wore them, always, as is common in Torvaldsland, in such a way that the right arm, the sword arm, is free.
.....In the crowd, too, much in evidence, were brazen bond-maids; they had been brought to the thing, generally, by captains and Jarls; it is not unusual for men to bring such slaves with them, though they are not permitted near the law courts or the assemblies of deliberation; the voyages to the thing were not, after all, ventures of raiding; they were not enterprises of warfare; there were three reasons for bringing such girls; they were for the pleasure of men; they served, as display objects, to indicate the wealth of their masters; and they could be bought and sold."  Marauders of Gor Chapter 12

The Althing Isle of Scagnar November 10 to November 15

Order of events. 
The events are not  generally kept to a STRICT order, this allows for the RT of participants. It also  aligns itself with the unique happy go lucky  nature of the Torvaldlanders.  ~s~

The bond-maid walks and oar dances can be done at any time during the fair. Bond-maids, prepare to be ordered to the platform at a Jarl's whim!

If you are unable to be there for one of the organised events, simply attend to it when you can and post   your  script  to either the main message board or our Althing board. The winners of events will be announced after the thing at a feast on Saturday the 18the November in the main hall.

You will find the rules for the events on our Althing board.  They will also be  posted in the room at the time.

Please remember to post all scripts  for judging and for our records.
All are welcome and it will be a safe zone for the duration of the  thing and the feast afterward!
