Ragnarok Rampage: Baldur’s Bash
Safety and Accessibility
Carraig Ban and Ragnarok Rampage is held in compliance with all SCA, Kingdom of the Middle, and Illinois safety policies, laws, and recommendations. Where this web site and those policies differ, those policies will be ones we follow. However, this page will give you a sense of what the event will look like and how it will differ from a typical SCA event. Please refer to SCA.org, Midrealm.org, and Coronavirus.illinois.gov for more details. Please refer to Middle Kingdom Covid Mitigation Policies Document for all Covid-related policies from the Middle Kingdom.
If you feel more comfortable wearing a mask, you are welcome to do so, though mask wearing is not required to attend our event. If you are looking for new masks, check out our merchants! Some may be selling SCA-themed masks.

Staff of Ragnarok Rampage cannot and will not ask you to disclose your vaccine status, but you are welcome to disclose that information, like any other medical information. To find out how to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, visit your local health department’s website, ask your medical provider, or contact your local pharmacy.

Food and Drink
Food and drink is permitted on site, but the site is a soft dry site with no alcoholic beverages permitted inside the on-site buildings. Alcohol drinking should be done within your own camp. Please take your alcohol refuse (bottles, cardboard boxes, etc) with you, and do not dispose of them in the on-site dumpster.
The Carraig Ban Courtesans will host a Friday night no-frills dinner, featuring board games and friendship. While there is no formal charge for this meal, the suggested donation is $5.
Lady Gillian Durham and the Barony of Carraig Ban will offer a simple lunch for a nominal cost
Feast Steward Akiyama Hiroaki has orchestrated a Returning Army’s Victory Feast, with attention to beauty, health, and glory! Food will have options for carnetarians, vegetarians, and allergy concerns. For specific questions and allergy reports, contact Lord Akiyama Hiroaki at CarraigBan.Exchequer@midrealm.org.
There may be snacks offered by households and others. Do, however, ensure you have enough food to safely eat while on site.
There is an indoor space on site, with plumbing / flushing toilets. There is a refrigerator if medicine needs to be refrigerated, but it cannot be used to store foods. There will be chilled, individually bottled water available throughout the day. All bathrooms will be gender neutral
There are two plumbed bathrooms in the site building that are available for use. Additionally, there will be two portable toilets on site, one standard size and one larger. None of these four toilets will be gender-restricted. All bathrooms will be stocked with toilet paper, menstruation products, and sanitizer.
On site there will be regularly available transit via golf cart. This is reserved for those with mobility issues or suffering from acute needs. When not in service, able passengers will be permitted, but please be conscientious of the cart’s primary purpose. If you need transportation on site, flag down any staff member to contact accessibility service. The site is relatively small, so waiting should be minimal.
The first row of court will be reserved for deaf and hard of hearing attendees, as well as those who are summoned into court with mobility difficulties.
The event is an outdoor event, and as such, most animals are welcome. Service animals, legally defined as dogs and miniature ponies, registered as such, are specifically welcome. Well-behaved dogs, cats, birds, and other small animals are welcome, but attendees take full responsibility for their animals’ safety and behavior. Be respectful of other attendees who may not enjoy being around your animal. All animals must be appropriately restrained while attending the event (leashes, cages, held, etc.). If you have a specific question about animal handling at Ragnarok Rampage, please contact the head of Security and Accessibility.
The Barony of Carraig Ban will facilitate a quiet and calm space suitable for people who are overstimulated, need to meditate or practice religious observance, breast/chest-feed children, or otherwise simply need quiet. This space may not be air conditioned, but it will be shaded and have water provided. If you are in need of air conditioning for health related reasons, please ask any staff member for assistance.
Several marked parking spots will be provided near Gate for those with mobility needs.
Ragnarok is a smaller event, with very little worry about security. However, in the event that an issue of security arises, or you have concerns, please speak with any staff member. They can help direct you to the appropriate person.
In the event that two or more attendees are in conflict, the event stewards and Baronial Seneschal will arbitrate for the purpose of the event. If the arbitration does not succeed, the event stewards and Baronial Seneschal have the right to remove any participant from the premises of the event without refund.
In the event that a crime is committed or accused, the appropriate authorities will be notified. That said, the event staff is sensitive to the modern climate of police distrust, and will be on hand to ensure that police are acting in an ethical fashion.
If you experience an emergency situation, every effort will be made to get you the form of assistance that you will most need.
