Round Table May 2022 – Looking for Tech Lead!

Greeting Ansteorra from your Kingdom Webminister – kolfinna inn kyrra Ottarsdottir!

We are about 6 weeks away from the next offering of the Ansteorra Round Table event! We had a very successful event this past January in which we used Google Meetings and a new mechanism for organizing and executing the event. We plan to do the same this May, and I am looking for a volunteer!

What we need:

One person to volunteer as the Tech Lead for the May 2022 Round Table.

This is a new method of running the event wherein we will have the event run by two individuals — a Tech Lead supported by Kingdom Webminister and a Class Coordinator supported by the Kingdom Seneschal. This event will be entirely virtual and does not need to be hosted or bid upon by individual groups within Ansteorra.

What does the Tech Lead job entail?

The Round Table Tech Lead will be a temporary deputy of the Kingdom Webminister until the conclusion of the May 2022 Round Table event.

Primary responsibilities include

We already have a detailed Operating Procedures document that will help guide both the Tech Lead and Class Coordinator. Plus! For the May 2022 Round Table, much of the technical prep and setup has already been done by me, so your primary responsibility for this Round Table will be to ensure the schedule, links, and website remain up-to-date going forward, and provide day-of support.

You will have the full support of me as Kingdom Webminister!

Are you interested in this job?

Please use this form to volunteer for the Round Table Tech Lead position for the May 2022 Round Table.

The Axeman Rapier Tournament format, developed by the Canton of Skorragarðr current Champion, Lady Angelina ( Angela Katherine Sanders), has incorporated the event theme into a challenging and fun tournament. The tournament format is as follows:

1. Land of Fog and Mist: Two opponents fight double daggers on a platform (boat). Tip cuts are allowed.

2. The Land of Fire: Two opponents take the field, bring your best. A rope will represent lava that will get smaller and smaller the longer the fight lasts.

3. Asgard: One opponent (bring your best) must fight off 3 opponents (single sword) who will represent The Gods.

4. Midgard: Two opponents “joust” using rubber balls as horses with single sword.

5. Home of Giants: Two opponents might fight from the ground, sword and buckler. The Champion will play the giant who will attempt to kill the little people on the ground. If the giant kills a human, no points are awarded that round. If a human kills the giant and their opponent 2 points will be awarded that round.

6. Home of Vanir: Two opponents fight single sword, each opponent must keep their hand on a giant boulder (ball). They cannot attack if they lose control of the ball.

7. Home of Elves: Two opponents fight sword and cloak.

8. Home of Dwarves: Two opponents face off. Fight single dagger and may use small hand buckler no more than 6” in diameter.

9. Helhiem: Two opponents face off, bring your best. Every 20 seconds, another opponent will take the field.
