Tournament of Ymir and Baronial Investiture
February 24- 26, 2017
Barony of Windmasters' Hill
Born of the fire of Muspelheim and the ice of Niflheim …
Born in the abyss of Ginnungagap …
Suckled by the cow Auðhumla …
From Ymir’s flesh the earth was created …
From his sweat and blood the seas were created …
From his bone the mountains were created …
From his hair the trees were created …
From his skull the skies were created …
From his brains the cloud were created…
And from his eyebrows the Gods made Midgard, home of the sons of men!
Come pay honors to Ymir, the frost giant from who the world was created!
Join us as we thank Baron Callixtus and Baroness Adriana for their gracious service and strong leadership and welcome our new Baron and/or Baroness.
