Viking Warriors!

Viking warriors July 31-August 6, 2017

Open every day 11:00-17:00 

The earth is shaking and it smells like trouble. Yes, once again Ripa is on red alert. Schemes and riots are the topic of this week, which offers thing assemblies and big fights.

A bell for Ansgar Church

Ripa is a buzzing and noisy trade centre and people from all over come here to have a slice of the cake...in one or the other way. Clever merchants, ruthless gangs of robbers and clergymen from the south just to name a few. With the king's permission, Ripa's first church is under construction and a Frankish delegation carrying a valuable church bell will arrive any day now. But the journey is long and dangerous, and the bell being a symbol of both power and the new faith makes it a very special treasure that many people would like to get their hands on.

Will the bell arrive safely in Ripa? Will the king show up to welcome his Frankish friends? What do the people of Ripa think about the Christians ringing a bell?

Don't miss out!

From July 31 till August 6 2017 this intriguing roleplay will take place in Ribe VikingeCenter, so pay us a visit or follow us on facebook.com/ribevikingecenter. Warrior groups from Denmark, Germany and The Netherlands meet to take part and give us all a week characterized by conspiracy, blackmail, revolts, battles, thing assemblies, negotiations, faith and much more.
