To the populace of the Kingdom of Aethelmearc does Odriana vander
Brugghe bid greetings.
In August of 2008, Lord Liam Mac anTsaoir issued the following
"Today, I, Liam Mac anTsaoir, the current Bardic Champion of the
Debatable Lands issues a challenge to the Heavy Fighters of Aethelmearc
and the Known World.
We as soldiers are often seen as brutish and unrefined, I offer a chance
to prove to the Known World that we are more than just men and women
with weapons, we are also patrons of the arts and sciences as well as
bards in our own right.
I am challenging all fighters that will attend battles and tournaments
at Agincourt this year to a Triathlon.
The First Event : Showing your Chivalrous Art on the field of battle.
The Second Event : Submission of an Arts and Sciences exhibit. The theme
of the A & S display in honor of St. Crispin is Leatherwork. However,
other A & S displays are allowed.
The Third Event : Performing a Bardic Art during the evenings feast.
This can be a story, a poem, or a song.
This is the Challenge I give to you the fighters, as a fellow soldier I
beseech you to show your honor and take my challenge.
A prize will be awarded at the end of the evening."
The Challenge was met by one gentle, Lady Leah of Newcastle. Her
performance on the field of battle was quite Chivalrous. She submitted a
leather bottle of great quality and skill to the A&S exhibit. She then
performed "Penser ne doit vilenie" from "Chevrefoil", her voice ringing
clear in the hall to the pleasure of all present.
Lady Leah of Newcastle showed herself to be a well-rounded fighter and
brought great honour to herself and to the fighters of the Kingdom
through her participation in this challenge.
