This is a shameless event plug for our upcoming event Warriors Nadaam October 9-11
The Silver Horde is once again hosting a Mongol themed event, sponsored
by the Crown Province of Ostgardr. All are invited to enjoy the
hospitality of the Steppe from all corners of the Mongol Yoke, and
visitors from the land of the Francs will be most welcome.
The Naadam tournament will test the three skills necessary to every
Mongol warrior: combat, archery and horsemanship. The heavy weapons
portion will be in the form of a Warlords Tourney in honor of the gathering of the tribes
by Chinggis Khaan, The archery portion will test your accuracy, and
competitors are encouraged to shoot earlier in the day before the heavy
weapons. Accuracy with thrown weapons will also be tested. The
mounted portion will test weapon skill from horseback. The Tournament
Schedule will be posted on the event website.
As all these skills are essential to Steppe warfare, a person must
enter at least two of these tourneys to qualify to be overall winner of
the Iron Man tourney. The Tourney will also be open to youths - they
may compete in the archery, thrown weapons, and equestrian portions
along side the adults and there will be a youth combat list open for
the combat portion in place of heavy weapons, counting full value
towards the Iron Man tourney score.
Aside from the main tournament, the list field will be open all day for
heavy weapons, and space will be made available for fencing.
Authorizations and lessons will be encouraged to be done in the
morning. For those who intend to ride and do not own a horse, please
arrange a mount in advance as horses will be limited.
There will be a hearty dayboard for all Prepared by Mistress Annekje (formerly Andrea McIntyre).
Feast will be a treat that will be sure to satisfy, from the words of
our feastocrat: "Warriors and commoners alike, come taste the foods
from the vast reaches of the Mongol Empire. From the windy Steppe to
the frozen reaches of Russia. Join us on the cool October evening and
share a hearty meal to delight and satisfy all palates."
As artisans are highly valued on the Steppe, there will be an A&S
Display featuring the finest Asian wares. Bards, known as Tuulich on
the steppe, from all lands are welcome to entertain for the evening's
