[nbos] [FM8] Joerdhgardh Map of Week #82 Released

Sun Oct 28th, 2012
With the 82nd Map of the Week we continue in the borderlands town of
Ódhinn's House in the Kingdom of Slovania. This week we take a look at the
thing Hall of Ódhinn's Fortress, above the Outer Town south of the main
settlement. The AEsir always have determined their course for each coming
year in an annual meeting of chieftains known as the thing. In Ódhinn's
time, the chieftains had been replaced by nobility, but the thing lost none
of its importance due to that change. The thing continues to be just as
important for the members of the Northern Circle. The two great annual
things take place each year in the tundra and in Thing Hall of Ódhinn's
Fortress. The circle has no nobility or chieftains. Instead, the high
druids of the fortress and in the outposts within the ruins of the AEsir
Empire participate in the things in Ódhinn's House. In old Midhgardh and in
the AEsir Empire the thing was an annual event except in rare cases of dire
emergency. Participation also was strictly limited to chieftains and later
to nobility. The Northern Circle also usually has only an annual thing, but
it will call a special thing more readily when there are important
circumstances that merit it. The circle also will not hesitate to admit and
talk with outsiders if they have or need valuable information. Thing Hall
is a relatively small, single story building without cellar. It measures 25
x 35 feet/7.5 x 10.5 m. It serves only as a thing location and as a room
for other conferences of the circle. The hall contains no valuables and is
not guarded.

1. Entrance.

2. Speaker's Chair. Only one designated person or the thing leader is
allowed to speak at any given time during a thing. Interruptions are not
tolerated except by the thing leader. The person who has the floor sits in

time. Today this chair is recerved for the high white druid Arnfinnur.
