Alma Ottedag 2016


It's early in the morn, the 23rd of May. It's around four in the morning, before the

rooster's call. In the village of Kyrkdala, the smallfolk are talking merrily. There’s

to be a wedding the next day, in the village of Skogsfjord. Many a gift is being

packed for the wedding, along with tasty-smelling bread, liquor, meat, and fruit.

Many of the smallfolk are coming with the bride Frigda and groom Brage to

celebrate. Frigda is a wee bit over sixteen, blonde, and wears an embroidered

dress fit for traveling or milking cows. Her most endearing feature must be that

full, cheerful smile.

Enter Freke, a man of 24 who looks a bit like a soldier.

Enter Kolgrim, a man of 25, a bit smelly, and carries an ornate sword.

Enter "Aska", a woman of 25, sleek, pale with very dull brown hair and gray eyes. Her

garments are of cotton, and mostly green or brown. She walks further away from

the people, in front of the wagon, spite aimed at her from the smallfolk.

Enter Bjurn, whose dwarven drunkard stench stretched around the whole village. We

were all a bit surprised the groom and bride agreed to take him with. He wears

fine dwarven mail, but no weapon.

We walk past fields until the company meets a thick pine forest. The road runs

right through it, carefully held neat and tidy. As we entered the woods, Kolgrim

found a need to blabber on about the troops. He tried to command the older

soldier lady in charge and failed horribly.

--"Let the jester live out his childhood fantasies of being a good knight

somewhere else" spouted Aska with a venomosity directed at the retired knight.

Bjurn agreed and lied: "His wife died not long ago, I imagine he's very distraught."

A time later the bride, Frigda, decided she direly wants to see fairies. She asks

around, then runs off with the dwarf to the forest edge. He tells her blatant lies

about fairies.

--"Look, that rock was once a fairy!" he says.

A few hundred lies later, the girl sees something in the grass. A shiny object

glimmers ominously. She picks it up and looks at it. The dwarf's attention is

caught, and desire grows in his eyes.

--"Did you know, fairies love to show off their stuff?" he says. She looks at him

with glimmering eyes, swallowing every word he speaks.

--"Do you think they made it?" answered Frigda.

--"... Did you know, fairies hide in their jewelry?" he continued.

The girl runs conspicuously to hide the ring in her baggage when Aska intervenes.

The ring ends up in the dwarf's pocket, and the day ends.

On the morn of the 24th of May, the company enters the village of Skogsfjord.

Enter Lars, a chubby old family man walking in comfortable shoes.

All the womenfolk are going to the bathing house to ceremonially wash off. Aska

stands on the side, shocked that they would bathe in scalding hot water.

Afterward, a woman in white walks in and puts a silver crown on the bride's head.

On the stairs to the groom's family home, the dwarf, Lars and Freke await his

return. After the groom and the men are done washing up, they go to the

couple's new home. Gifts for the house goblins are placed on the stone house

threshold. Aska asks where these goblins can be found, only to entangle herself

in an amusing volley of arguments with the lying dwarf. During this, the marriage

ceremonies begin.

In the village church, the priest preaches to the many gods and prophets.

Afterward, the families of each spouse's house place gifts at the other's side. The

groom draws an ornate sword and gives this to the bride. He swears to protect

his wife. Then she repeats the same thing about him, after being handed the

sword. After the ceremony is over, the white-clothed woman sings a song for the

company. It almost sounds like a whole choir. She is a witch, and there is

definitely something magical to the song. Aska knows the song is normal for

forest-folk. Long ago, the elves taught humans some of their magic.

After the singing, a feast begins. Aska asks about the liquor, then tastes it. Then

some lighter festivities are starting. First, Aska wins the bow-tournament. Then, a

giant walks in and beats the shit out of the soldier girl in a melee tournament.

Then, Bjurn fails the drinking competition. In the very end, a story-telling game is

held. The dwarf wins by telling a drunken tale of fairy rings.

Darkness falls over the village. At night in a clearing in the forest close to the

village, had anyone been there, they would have heard the song of the colorless
