  1. Lady Ærinndís, Allow me to say that Your Imperial and Royal Highness can count me in for your next falcon hunt! When might that upcoming event of falconry of yours take place?
  2. Lady Ærinndís, Allow me to ask whether I may join one of those future falcon hunts of yours?
  3. Allow me to say that this treaty indeed is superabundantly excellent news for Batavia, much less so for Shireroth, though.
  4. Allow me to thank you all for the kind words and good wishes!
  5. At the ruins of Harald's Holdfast a crowd has assembled. In the center of the crowd, which is composed of Stormarkers of all ages and from all walks of life, stands the High Justiciar of Stormark, Unna of Skálavík of the House of Vanadís, Lady Superior Mortal of the Daughters of Freyja, Bloodroyal and Ærkejarla of Freyja's Necklace, Royal Chieftainess of Skálavík. "Fra Havet, Hæder!", the High Justiciar proudly calls out, the crowd repeating those ancient words in unison. Then, from a cauldron of gold filled with a mixture of waters taken from worship waters from each of the Twenty-Six Jarldoms, the High Justiciar solemly casts the various aquatic liquid to the winds. To the North; to Gularike. To the South; to the Arbor Isles, Borgarrike, the Frigga Islands, the Isles, and the Sólareyjar. To the East; to Eidsivarike, Freyja's Necklace, Frostarike, Haldarsvik, Hålogarike, the Longships Islands, Old Gaol Isle, Orkney, Port Chloe and the Providence Plantations, the Rose Cape, Snæland, Thingeyri, Tiundarike, and the Vaan Aujoen. To the West; to the Idunn Isles, the Mysterious Isles, Normandie, Thule, Tronderike, and Vinland. And to the Twenty-Six Jarldoms on Reikistjarna beyond Vanaorb, ancient lands undirectly illuminated by the light of the Lords and Ladies Divine. Three Ladies, each one of them a senior member of one of the Three Grand Mysterious Sisterhoods known since times ancient beyond the memory of woman as the Daughters of Frigga, the Daughters of Freyja, and the Daughters of Idunn, and in that capacity of theirs representing the Fulltrui and Sacred Queens of the Twenty-Six Jarldoms, the Ladies Divine Frigga, Freyja and Idunn, step forward. They are carrying Lightning, the greatsword of the High Kings of Stormark, and present it to the High Justiciar. The High Justiciar draws Lightning from its golden with precious stones adorned sheath and raises the greatsword high towards the sky. "Hear me! Hear me! Hear me People of the Lands of the Longships Throne!", the High Justiciar beamingly exclaims. "This is the day of my Inauguration as High Justiciar of the High Realm of Stormark. From this day forth I shall dream the High King's Dreams, speak with His Voice, and rule with His Sword. And since time immemorial ancient custom decrees that on this very day I am to renew the sacred pledges and ancient covenants of this high office with the High King, the Fulltrui and Sacred Queens, and you, the people of this great nation." "I would be remiss, this day, if I did not thank the High King, and you, the people of the Twenty-Six Jarldoms for your patience, support and loyalty, and there is no one of our folk living who does not owe much and more to the Fulltrui and Sacred Queens than he or she can ever repay, and I want Their Most Sacred Majesties to know that I humbly and gratefully realize my debt to Them." "A fountain to one who is dying of thirst, healing of soul when life's at its worst, a home for one who has wandered too far, you have been for me, o Sacred Queens, and still are! A beacon in darkness, a staff for my road; endurance and strength to lighten my load, a touch of kindness when I felt all sore, all this you have given me, Ladies Divine, and still more! My gratitude words alone cannot express, through your company and care, through your love I am blessed! I honour you, Fulltrui, and follow your lead, I shall praise you forever by word and by deed!" "Thanks to the Sweet Loving Fulltrui of the Lands of the Longships Throne today I have the tremendous honour to be inaugurated as High Justciar of the Land of the Three Sacred Falcons on the same spot, where once, many moons ago, a young chieftain from the Mysterious Isles going by the name of Harald made landfall on this sacred island of Hnossa Isle. With this greatsword in his hand and the Indulgence of the Three Ladies Divine, this Scion from the House of the Descendants of Freyja broke the yoke of Ivar the Impaler's tyranny, liberated the Isles of the Heartland, and started the Second Viking Age. It is very appropriate then that from this Cradle of the High Realm, this very Heart of the Heartland, that today we sound the drum for liberty as have our generations of forebears before us done, ever since the days of Valtia. Let us rise to the call of liberty-loving blood that is in us and send our answer to the tyranny that wishes to clank its chains upon our country. In the name of the greatest people that have ever trod Reikistjarna, I draw the line in the dust and toss the gauntlet before the feet of tyranny as we once tossed the gauntlet before the feet of the Harkalegar." "As of now assuming the helm of the Longship of State as the High King's Navigator and First Mate, I,Unna of Skálavík of the House of Vanadís, Lady Superior Mortal of the Daughters of Freyja, Bloodroyal and Ærkejarla of Freyja's Necklace, Royal Chieftainess of Skálavík, proudly commanding its sails to be raised, its oars to be unshipped, and its prow to be pointed towards Glorious Liberty, taking wind and tide as partners in my dance upon the great waters to the beat of the swell, do hereby solemnly swear to be a true and faithful Servant unto The High King's Majesty as one of His High Council of the Realm. I shall not know or understand of any manner of thing to be attempted, done or spoken against His Imperial and Royal Majesty's Person, Honour, Crown or Dignity Imperial, but I shall lett and withstand the same to the uttermost of my power. I shall to my uttermost bear Faith and Allegiance to the High King's Majesty; and shall assist and defend all Jurisdictions, Pre-eminences, and Authorities, granted to His Imperial and Royal Majesty and annexed to the Crown by or under the High Law and Statutes of the Lands of the Longships Throne, or otherwise, against all Foreign Princes, Persons, Prelates, States, or Potentates. And generally in all things I shall do as a faithful and true Servant ought to do to His Imperial and Royal Majesty." "And I do also solemnly swear to be a true and faithful High Justiciar unto The Majesties of the Sacred Queens, Creators and Mothers Divine of this great nation. I shall conduct the government of the Lands of the Longships Throne in accordance with their vision of a safe land of happy and free people, who are especially to be free from the expectations of others. I shall not know or understand of any manner of thing to be attempted, done or spoken against the Three Ladies Divine's Vision, but I shall lett and withstand the same to the uttermost of my power. And generally in all things I shall do as a faithful and true High Justiciar ought to do to Their Most Sacred Majesties." "And I do also solemnly swear to be a true and faithful High Justiciar unto the People of the Twenty-Six Jarldoms. I shall to my last breath uphold, protect, and defend their most ancient Rights, Liberties and Free Customs, which they have enjoyed since times ancient beyond the memory of woman. I shall not know or understand of any manner of thing to be attempted, done or spoken against the most ancient Rights, Liberties and Free Customs aforesaid, but I shall lett and withstand the same to the uttermost of my power. And generally in all things I shall do as a faithful and true High Justiciar ought to do to the People of the Land of the Golden Boar." "I do also solemnly declare that I take these obligations freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion." "So help me Sacred Queens!" "Fulltrui's Love, Stormark's Strength!"
  6. I, Unna of Skálavík of the House of Vanadís, Bloodroyal and Ærkejarla of Freyja's Necklace, a Patrician of Stormark, do hereby, under Article 5 of the First Part of the High Justiciar Act of Year 11, declare my intention to stand for election as High Justiciar in the forthcoming High Justiciar's Election for the Noatun 19 Term. Signed, Unna of the House of Vanadís.

  9. "Arkadius Frederik Gustavus des Vinandy and Esther Fatima Gudrid Ayreon-Kalirion ibn al-Majeed bin Sathrati af Ettlingum Freyu, By the Powers vested in the Longships Throne by the ancient laws and customs of the High Realm of Stormark, I, Lady Unna of Skálavík of the House of Vanadís, Bloodroyal and Ærkejarla of Freyja's Necklace, Royal Chieftainess of Skálavík, High Justiciar of the Realm of Joy, now here at the Bruðlaupsalr of Kaupmaðrhǫll in the Jarldom of Eidsivarike, pronounce the both of you husband and wife! From this day forth the Twenty-Six Jarldoms shall consider you married. Congratulations! You may now kiss each other!" The High King's Navigator and First Mate of the Longship of State then performed a traditional Eidsivarish wedding blessing, modified to the circumstances of the newlyweds. "May the Nornir witness what is spoken here today. May this blessing weave itself well into the threads of wyrd And shine as a beacon in memory’s hall." "From the peaceful world of Helheim, may you be blessed. May your ancestors rejoice in your union And bless you with their collective wisdom." "From the icy world of Niflheim, may you be blessed. May the winds of change smile upon you And may you always find clarity in communication. " "From the dark world of Svartalfheim, may you be blessed. May the duergar grant you a craftsman’s skill, And may you create a marriage equal to an artisan’s masterpiece." "From the fiery world of Muspelheim, may you be blessed. May your marriage be one of passion for each other And may that passion never waver." "From the tumultuous world of Jotunheim, may you be blessed. May your commitment endure growing stronger Even in the midst of disagreement." "From the joyfully complex world of Midgard, may you be blessed. May your marriage grow strong, enduring roots And may those roots give you both wings to soar" "From the bounteous world of Vanaheim, may you be blessed. May your marriage bring you abundance, And may your home be one of joy." "From the glittering world of Alfheim, may you be blessed. May you never feel the need to wear masks with each other, And may you seek the truth of your hearts together." "From the mighty world of Asgard, may you be blessed. May pride bow its head before the grace of compromise And together may your marriage thrive." "Let Cato witness what is spoken here today. May Mani guide you, May Sunna shelter you, May Freyja and Frigga smile upon you both All the days of your life, And may those days be filled with all good things." "In the meanwhile shall I and the witnesses proceed to signing the matrimonial contract appertaining to this union of yours, and the two of you shall follow with signing the contract when you have finished kissing for the first time as husband and wife. And after the signing of the matrimonial contract you will depart the Bruðlaupsalr for the Spegillsalr where the Frankish Imperial Guard is already awaiting you, the newly-wed Imperial Couple of Francia."
  10. Time had come for the exchange of the wedding rings. The Lady High Justiciar turned to Elisabeth. "Your Royal Highness, you are needed!" Superabundantly beamingly - of such a so intensity and luminosity that the guests seated in the Bruðlaupsalr of Kaupmaðrhǫll almost required sunglasses to prevent from being blinded by her radiance - Her Royal Highness the Princess of Austrasia stepped forward. The little royal lady was exuberantly exited. In a few instances she officially would, in Esther, have a mother again and her father a wife for life. And a supersplendiferously funtastic one too! Her red-maned seahorse! But she would never ever use her golden spurs on her, Elisabeth chuckled before offering the royal blue Valtian Silk pillow with a pair of platinum wedding rings, masterpieces by the Norman goldsmith Nicolas d'Aulnoy, to Arkadius and Esther.
  11. The High King's Navigator and First Mate of the Longship of State turned to Esther. "Esther Fatima Gudrid Ayreon-Kalirion ibn al-Majeed bin Sathrati af Ettlingum Freyu, do you take Arkadius Frederik Gustavus des Vinandy as your legal husband and do you promise to be a loving and loyal wife to him in good and bad days, in poverty as in wealth, in sickness and health till death does you part?"
  12. The Lady High Justiciar turned to Arkadius. "Arkadius Frederik Gustavus des Vinandy, do you take Esther Fatima Gudrid Ayreon-Kalirion ibn al-Majeed bin Sathrati af Ettlingum Freyu as your legal wife and do you promise to be a loving and loyal husband to her in good and bad days, in poverty as in wealth, in sickness and health till death does you part?"
  13. The music started to play again: the soft tones of a single flute which played an ancient romantic wedding tune. "Arkadius Frederik Gustavus des Vinandy and Esther Fatima Gudrid Ayreon-Kalirion ibn al-Majeed bin Sathrati af Ettlingum Freyu, come to the fore and be joined in matrimony!" the Lady High Justiciar boomed. Arkadius and Esther eagerly stepped forward, their eyes sparkling and their hearts pounding. Tenderly they took each other's hands and looked deeply into one another's eyes. This was the moment! "They make such an Imperial Couple," Her Royal Highness mused in her thoughts, "and they also radiate happiness beyond imagination."
  14. The High King's Navigator and First Mate of the Longship of State turned to Esther. "Esther Fatima Gudrid Ayreon-Kalirion ibn al-Majeed bin Sathrati af Ettlingum Freyu, have you come here to the Bruðlaupsalr of Kaupmaðrhǫll in the Jarldom of Eidsivarike of your own free will and in full consent of your heart?"
  15. The Lady High Justiciar turned to Arkadius. "Arkadius Frederik Gustavus des Vinandy, have you come here to the Bruðlaupsalr of Kaupmaðrhǫll in the Jarldom of Eidsivarike of your own free will and in full consent of your heart?"
