In the beginning...
...it came to pass that the King called a Great Tournament, that all of his
fell warriors might hone their skills of war, one against the other, in good
And the warriors were well pleased with the prospect, but still
something troubled them. And they spake unto their King, saying "Great Majesty,
well pleased are we to take up arms in tournament, to prove again that when Calon
warriors take the field nobody lives, everybody dies, and nobody gets laid."
"But in such a tournament it needs be that TWO armies meet upon the field, with TWO liveries and TWO banners, lest
no man be able to tell friend from foe. The warriors of Calontir are like stones
in a wall, each different, but united to a common cause. How then will we divide
ourselves to play at war? Give us instruction in this, Great King!"
And the King spake thus unto His Warriors, saying "Let it be that the fighters
who dwell in Our Glorious Baronies align themselves upon the Field of Honor
against those of Our Noble Shires. And, as the colors of Our Kingdom are Purpure and Or, let the Shires take Or for their livery and let the Baronies take Purpure.
And further, let the bards and other artisans contend as well, that not only Our warriors but all Our Populace will be spurred on to even greater deeds!"
And so it was. Herein is a part of that chronicle, told for the Shires by HL Harald Isenross
and for the Baronies by HL Mathurin Kerbusso. May these humble efforts find favor with
you, Great Lords and Ladies of Calontir.
