At Steppes Warlord, a tournament was held in honor of Don Benedict
Ashton. It was a wonderful event and a fitting tribute, and I would like
to offer my gratitude to the many people who helped make it thus.
(in vaguely chronological order)
To Their Majesties, Their Graces, and the autocrats, for allowing me
to hold the tournament when and where it was held;
To Lord Joseph Thomas, for helping me set up the pavilions and list
To Baron Borek Vitalievich Volkov, who so kindly allowed us to use
To Baroness Michelle Chantal de Charente, Sir Asoph Hearts, and
Countess Allyson Tymmes, for the wonderful food and decorations;
To Countess Margaret ny Connor, for being a fabulous list mistress
and for offering largesse;
To all of the fighters who honored Benedict by fighting with honor
(and sometimes humor) in his tournament;
To Baron Connor Drummond, for being my marshal-in-charge;
To the heralds and marshals, without whom we could not fight;
To the many nonfighters in attendance, who came to offer their
To Master Erasimus von Eisenwald uber Tauberbischofsheim (Eisen!) and
Master Aeron Harper, who provided a beautiful knife as a prize (The
Damascus blade was made by Master Eisen from a previous project intended
for Benedict and the amazing checkered handle and the scabbard were made
by Master Aeron the prize went to Benedicts mentor and friend,
To Master Aeron Harper, who won the tournament with skill and grace.
The tournament was a remarkable tribute, with friendship, memories,
and laughter in attendance. I think Benedict would have been (or
perhaps is) quite pleased. My thanks to all.
