  3. 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!"
  4. 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 Sokkvabekk 16 Term. Signed, Unna of the House of Vanadís.
  5. Happy Fulltrui Day!

    Allow me to wish you all a superabundantly joyous Fulltrui Day!
  6. People of the High Realm and the Borders Beyond! Allow me to wish you all a superabundantly happy the Longest/Shortest Day! Today the Stormarkers living on the Vanaorb's Northern Hemisphere may celebrate the Summer Solstice, and those living on the Southern Hemisphere may celebrate the Winter Solstice! Let's rejoice!

  8. A mackerel school in Eesdeheito's part of the Clear Sea The mackerel stock in Eesdeheito's waters is larger than at any time since the Eesdeheito Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research started monitoring stocks of pelagic fish around Eesdeheito in the year 1628. A new report released by the Eesdeheito Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research covers fish population statistics taken in Silnuai and Kuspor this year. The average weight of mackerel older than seven years is heavier than last year, but the average weight of younger fish has dropped between years. The overall mackerel stock has grown almost constantly since 1638 and is now the highest since records began twenty years ago. Mackerel is Eesdeheito’s most important commercial fishery. The greater number of large mackerel in the stock is part of the reason for the stock growth, though the inhabited area was also larger this year than in many previous research trips; with good mackerel coverage all the way around the Eesdeheito. The populations of mackerel, redfish and ling were high compared to the average of the last two decades, the report states. Meanwhile, the haddock stock around the Eesdeheito was roughly average and the catfish stock was lower than normal. Five other commercial fish stocks were rated as high and growing, and three are at an historic low, but recovering. The monkfish stock is also not as healthy as it should be. The research expedition by two Eesdeheito Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research trawlers indicates that the habitat of several species around the Eesdeheito have changed over the past twenty years. Monkfish and haddock, for example, have grown quickly in numbers in the western part of the Clear Sea, where the sea temperature has been increasing.
  9. The Queen Isolde A record number of cruise ships are expected in Ulfrvik this summer, according to Eesdeheito's Department of Tourism. On the 15th of May, the Queen Isolde will arrive in Tudrilhöfn harbor with close to 3,000 passengers onboard. This marks the beginning of a five-month long cruise ship season. No less than 160 of them are expected this summer, surpassing last year’s record number of 133. That year, the ships brought 332,583 passengers to Eesdeheito, while this year, the number of passengers is expected to exceed 400,000. By comparison, roughly 6,3 million passengers are expected to travel to Eesdeheito by air this year. Sigyn Kjallakursdóttir, tourism director at Eastern Heath Harbours, does not believe the list of cruise ships to get any longer this year, since most are booked one to three years in advance. According to Lady Sigyn, no ship has ever been turned away due to a lack of space, but the goal is to limit the number of passengers arriving to 9-10,000 a day to ensure the infrastructure can handle the multitude. The largest number of ships is expected on August 31, or five of them. Most ships only stop from morning until evening. This year, two cruise ships are scheduled to sail to Klifvatr on the Eesdeheito's eastern coast, which will be the first time the town receives such vessels. Among all tourists who traveled to Eesdeheito last year, Alexandrian citizens were the most numerous by far. Still, Natopians were the most numerous among those who arrived by sea, or 100,488, making up almost a third of those who sailed to Eesdeheito last year. Only a fifth of the sailing tourists came from Shireroth, or 63,241. They were closely followed by tourists from Constancia, who numbered 59,893.

  12. In the Name of His Imperial and Royal Majesty Harald Freyjugjöf the Generous Giver of the House of the Descendants of Freyja, of the Ancient Blood of Long Lost Valtia and of the Most Sacred Blood of the Lady of the Vanir before that, Sacred Consort of the Most Gracious and Most Generous Ladies Divine Frigga, Freyja and Idunn, by Conquest, Popular Acclamation and the Indulgence of the said Fulltrui and Sacred Queens, High King of Stormark, Sovereign Lord on all Continents; By the Word of Her Royal Highness Unna of Skálavík of the House of Vanadís, Bloodroyal and Ærkejarla of Freyja's Necklace, Royal Chieftainess of Skálavík, Lady Warden of the Army and the Fleets, Grand Master of Archers of the Longship of State, Seneschal of the Swords, Guardian of the Hall of Freyja; Operation Fallen Falconess Damage Report Introduction On the Twelfth Day of Muulantooqu in the Year 1647 the guided missile destroyer HKMS Vestsjælland (DDG20), which is part of the Humlebæk Island Flotilla, fired, in accordance with the Imperial Proclamation of the Twenty-Third Day of the Month Sokkvabekk in the Sixteenth Year of the Second Viking Age On the Fallen Falconess, 23 Gungnir IV cruise missiles with thermobaric warheads at three targets in Walstadt, to wit: the Youth Boarding School of Walstadt, House Walstadt, and Walstadt's whaling harbour. Target No. 1: The Youth Boarding School of Walstadt A pair of Gungnir IV cruise missiles with thermobaric warheads were fired at the Youth Boarding School of Walstadt. This Natopia-wide hated symbol of the ways of Walstadt on the Hill of Chilly Winds was by the inferno caused by the exploding cruise missiles completely laid to waste, leaving only scant charred remains. Target No. 2: House Walstadt House Walstadt in the inner city of Walstadt was at the receiving end of a flight of three Gungnir IV cruise missiles which all hit home, doing their devastating work. Needless to say that the demolition permit the House's curator was seeking to obtain in order to take certain decrepit annexes of the House down is no longer required. Target No. 3: Walstadt's Whaling Harbour A swarm of eighteen Gungnir IV cruise missiles came down on Walstadt's whaling harbour, targetting the cross-dock trading goods warehouse, fuel tanks, ammunition depots, the harbour office, the five coastal artillery batteries, the quay for trading ships, the piers for the fishing and whaling fleet, the fish auction, and berths for the harbour pilots and coast guard. Walstadt's five coastal artillery batteries were all put out of business. The bulk of the buildings in the whaling harbour has either been reduced to smoldring ruins or heavily damaged. Many a fishing vessel, coast guard ship and whaler was sunk or severely damaged. The entrance to the whaling harbour is blocked by debris and ship wrecks.
