Stout, filthy men in studded leather armor thunder into the hall,
destroying everything in their path. Well-dressed fops and timid-
looking artisans scramble for their lives, their carefully prepared
displays abandoned and overrun by the wave of destruction.
One stout man pauses to consider a stage at the end of a room, where
a bard stands and begins to tell a tale of passion and heroism... and
drinking! The shouting pillagers stagger to a halt, mouths agape and
eyes glued to the bard. A close-up of the bard shows the tiniest
trace of fear in his eyes, for just a moment, that clearly only the
camera can see. His tale continues, gathering momentum and intensity.
A beautiful, towering display of period miniature paintings finishes
its noisy cascade to the floor, and one of the barbarians turns to
address the camera. "Kingdom Bardic and Beer! What's in *your* tankard?"
(going off to get a much-belated lunch now... shouldn't allow myself
to go too long without eating like this...) :-P
