HONOR OVER GLORY

Since courteous and honorable behavior is at the core of the SCA, this event is dedicated to the chivalric principles and courtly love to which we in the modern Middle Ages aspire.

We expect to hold archery, rapier, and heavy combat events interspersed with opportunities to practice chivalry.

Contests in poetry reading, courtly serenades and even bowing (curtsying) and hand kissing will challenge all greater and lesser nobles.  Instruction in dance will culminate in post-feast revelry.  A&S competition will highlight the honorable glory that goes "hand in gauntlet" with chivalric practices.


Honor Over Glory will be the inaugural event of the Viking Longhall in Iron Mountain, in the southern regions of the Shire of Skerjastrond.  This is a site which bespeaks the honor and glory of medieval courtly life.

No, lords and ladies, chivalry is
not dead in the Kingdom of Northshield!  Come and see for yourselves!  Vivat!

**Attendees are encouraged to bring with them their coat of arms or device banners which will be hung from the great rafters of the longhall.  (suggested size:  2' x 3' minimum)
**Ladies, prepare your favor for a chosen combatant.
