Ealdormere Battlefield Court, Pennsic

An account of the Court of Their Majesties Quilliam Rex and Tangwystl the Queene, held upon the battlefield at the 46th Pennsic War within the Debatable Lands
Their Majesties instructed their rapier fighters to assemble and present themselves before Their Majesties William and Isolde of the Middle Kingdom, who opened Their Court. Warder Andreas Blacwode, premier of the Order of the Bronze Ring, then begged a boon of Their Majesties. Andreas had not had the opportunity to fight for Queen Tangwystl when she had once ruled in the Middle, but he had done so on this day, and seen the fighters of the Wolf serve as the teeth of the Dragon. Their Majesties William and Isolde were in agreement, and the rapier fighters of Ealdormere were given the Award of the Dragon's Teeth. It is to be noted that the armoured fighters of the fledgeling Principality of Ealdormere, with Tangwystl as its first Princess, were one of the first two groups to receive this award in AS 25.
Returning to the Ealdormere presence upon the field, Their Majesties asked Duchess Kaylah to relate some of the deeds of valour done that day. Several deeds were mentioned, most particularly the work of THL Lars Erikson in serving as rapier commander. She then begged a boon and asked that Lars be elevated to the Order of Defence. Court was opened, the candidate was called forward. After hearing words of support from Sir Baldric, Master Albrecht (read by Her Majesty in absentia), Mistress Eyrny, and Prince Edward, Lars was immediately elevated to the Order of Defense, swearing his oath of fealty on the hereditary sword of the Order.
