Who's Afraid of Beowulf 4 ("Hrafnafjordr gone wild!") -- Hrafnafjordr

August 11, 2006 (AS XLI)

Creavenore (Private Residence),
Soldotna, AK

From The Page (August, 2006):

Alas, all good things come to an end. That's right, Oertha has a new prince and princess and as the summer wanes, it's time for "Who's Afraid of Beowulf 4!" This will be the last installment of our saga. The great Hrafnafjordr Axe of Might has long carried the spirit of The Beast Grendel within it and has corrupted the shire's Champion. Now the call goes out to find a new hero, one who can defeat the old champion, now turned wicked, and lay waste to the spirit of Grendel himself, freeing the Shire from evil, once and for all. In addition to the championship tourney there will be contests aplenty to celebrate the Viking spirit in all of us including miniature Viking boat building (extra points for authenticity, able to float and hold a small amount of weight). Viking booty call (fashion show) and a good old fashioned berserker contest. This is the LAST BEOWULF!! Lord Gunnar's duties call him elsewhere and he has passed the torch on to other shire folk.
