Come now, you cannot fault the valor or skill of the Black Diamond forces,
as it included Lord Thorbrandr Olafson (now Count), Lord Otto the Obscure
(now Knight), Lord Adenwald the Hazardous (now Knight), and your own most
noble and puissant self.

I would, however, submit that the Storviki army had the advantage of
experience and far greater opportunity to train together than Black Diamond

Elisabeth MacAlester (who was also there under another name).
