Activity List

As we grow weary of the cold and isolation, the Barony of Myrgan Wood seeks some solace in a little fun and revelry at Skald the Hall on March 6 in a perfectly relaxed virtual gathering.

The plan is that we will use the Baronial Facebook group ( Located here ) and the Kingdom zoom account (links to come) as tools to connect us through various activities. Please join/connect when/where/how you have the time and capacity to do so in whichever activity appeals to you.

Bard Off is on! This our third attempt at this unique tournament. Everyone is invited to entertain as a bard with whatever skills you bring in whatever style appeals to you. Bards will be randomly selected to square off to perform one after the other and then the bards determine who is slain (traditional prize for the best death!) and who advances to the next round. You may perform ‘live’ on zoom or share a recorded performance if that works better for you. The rest of us are the real winners because we get to be entertained - on zoom at 7pm

Photo Scavenger Hunt: starting at 10:30 and at every 30 minute interval a photo album will be created on the Myrg fb group with a designated theme. Find or take a photo to contribute and add it to the album.

Catherine's Classy Medieval Trivial Game:
Try your luck with questions from the Medieval Times card game questions by Professor Noggins. Questions will be posted to the Myrg fb group throughout the day.

Play a game of any type with someone (in your house or on line) post a photo to the FB group (if we need a prize - it’ll be one point for each photo posted)
— remember the card game created by Haskul & Susan for Anniversary?
Card Game Rules and Cards

Socializing and Bardic Circle to follow

Bard Off


Bring your pieces and prepare to duke it out.... on the performance stage. Two contestants will enter, then one will present their 1-2 minute performance, once they are done the second will immediately begin. When they are finished one of the bards shall die spectacularly and the other will advance to the next round of the single elimination competition. If neither or both fall, the two will have up to 3 minutes to discuss in a breakout room. If the bards cannot resolve who won at the end of 2 minutes, it is a tie and a double death.

Please limit the length of your pieces to a minute or two. You can continue to use the same performance over again, or have a different piece for each bout. It's your decision. Please remember it's about being entertaining and having fun. Ham it up if you wish, pretend you are fighting, or be super professional looking it's all here for your enjoyment.

Everyone is welcome, and if you would like to enter, please contact HE Roxanne via FB messenger or, so there is a general idea of numbers. But people will be allowed to enter the day of.

Prizes will be given for the winner, and best death!
