Banter: Novices & Black Kane
Greetings all and especially Eldrydd.
>I thought it might be rather interesting having more "new" people on the
Authorized fighters for less than six months is well beyond "new".
Assuming that requirement to be six months from Crown Tourney, the cutoff
would have been May 4. Today, they would have been authorized for about 6

I believe Duke Badouin sponsored a "No Duke" Tourney a few years back. Can't say
I'm against the idea but not a "No Count" Tourney. (pardon the pun)

Well, lad...pull us a pint and I'll tell you about Kane and imperial stout:
It hasn't been all that long since Kane sat Throne. For His Coronation, I
presented him with a gift of a case of imperial stout. Unfortunately, I had
only bottled the brew two days earlier--so it wasn't ready for drinking.
When I arrived at the site, I found His Highness only long enough to tell
him I had his gift, and ask where I should deliver it. His response was a
warm grin and an outstretched hand. Of course, I told him it wasn't ready
yet, I didn't have it with me, and I would have to bring it to his camp. He
thanked me, told me where he was staying, and made off for His Coronation.
Now, that was the last time I saw him that day. And after settling my
family, I set out about delivering my cargo. Along the way, I happened upon
his daughter, who escorted me to their camp. As I said earlier, the stout
was not yet ready for drinking. It's a fine brew and I'm right proud of how
it comes out--but it needs to be in the bottle about a month to come of
age. So, the beer would not be fit (in my opinion) for drinking until Crown
Of course, all of this I related to his daughter. I admonished her to make
sure that all this was related to her father. This she promised to do. And
from what she told me later, she performed her charge--perhaps at her own
For the most part, my part in this was done...save to render it for you
now. At some time, I think after First Court and before dinner, His Majesty
made his way back to his camp. Once he had changed, he noticed the
potables. Apparently, with some glee, he fell upon them. With stout in
hand, he was making his way about the camp in search of an appropriate
implement to begin his recreation. Whereupon, his daughter found him and
relayed my message--in its entirety. She tells me that His Resemblance to
an unhappy six-month-old puppy was astonishing. He dutifully put the bottle
away and sighed...and waited for Crown Tournament.
I believe he told me later it was worth the wait...but he still didn't like
Speaking of stout, lass, is there any more in the keg? I seem to have drained
