Funcom's Age of Conan PR Party

On Tuesday the 13th of May Funcom invited journalists from all over the world, celebrities, fans and employees to a huge party at Holmenkollen in Oslo to celebrate the launch of our latest game; Age Of Conan: Hyborian Adventures.
Holmenkollen had been turned into a Cimmerian camp with locals and horses, meat was being grilled and served, drinks were free, jugglers and flame blowers performed, Helene Bøksle sang from the soundtrack with her amazing voice and the occasional fight broke out between warriors. The whole event culminated in a great battle where Conan in person sorted everything out followed by a massive firework display.
Afterwards we were taken underground to a harem where Turbonegro had a concert (which happened after I'd left the harem).
It was a fun evening and I took some photos.
