My fellow Ladies of Ansteorra
I am so excited. I just found out some of the things that "ladies"
can do at Hunters' Moon in Waco.
First they just told me about "Earl". It appears that Earl the Dummy
has been a bad boy so the Ladies at Hunter's Moon will be hurling cast iron
skillets at him.
Did you know defending our lands with skillets is long honored custom of
When Duke Jonathan was the first king of Ansteorra he also the First Protector
of Namron. When the second tourney came about the members of the the
Protectorate decide to fight among themselves to see who was the best and that
person would be the Grand Master. Well Master Loyd became the second Protector.
The fight was to take place on Sunday.
Yes, children we did things on Sunday at that time
His Majesty ,Sir Jonathan de Laufyson and Maser Lloyd got up at dawn to warm up
for their fight. They got ready for their fight by fighting each other.
I was there drinking my morning ale -coffee and other ladies were up and about
starting morning breakfast. We heard shouting on the beach and looked down to
see a Viking ship with Laughing Vikings.
The Viking were happy because they knew that they would take everyone by
surprise. They stopped laughing when they realize that the two lone men on the
beach in armor were the two Premier fighters of the Kingdom. The man who was
King and the man who would be the next.
Ten of the evil Vikings engaged Sir Jonathan and Master LLoyd and the rest led
by Yona ran after the women. They chased them up the hill until the Ladies got
to their campsites. Baroness Gweneth grabbed a frying pan and the other
Ansteorran ladies did the same and then they charged the Norsemen.
Yona and the others froze in their tracks. Then they turned and fled down the
hill only to be grabbed by the ladies and hit over and over by their weapons.
They called to me. As I was the pile of weapons my husband and brother had
bought down to play with. I grabbed a SCA legal dagger and while the ladies
bought down the marauders I calmly sat on their chest and slit their throats.
So I say it is good that the Ladies of Emerald Keep are keeping their skills up
with their chosen weapon and it would do us all good to try our hand.
