From the West we came. Sir Njal
Grimmson, Gonfanier of the
Hospitallers lead THL Methius, Herr
Yon Von and Lord Caius onto the field
on Friday Morning as they were the
first Hospitallers to make it across the
Sun Baked sands to stand beside King
Edric against the Adenvelt horde and
its allies. The men fought bravely upon
the open field. When his Majesty
requested that three small Keeps of
stone be taken..the Hospitallers were
standing in them before the Sun set
and the day belong to the fine warriors
of Caid and its Allies.

On saturday the Hospitalers numbers
were bolstered by the arrival of the
rest of the Brethren. Although the
numbers of the Caid army grew in
strength, so to did the numbers of the
Adenvelt Army in such a size that Caid
was vastly outnumbered. "Much Glory
to be had', cried out the King and we
had to agree- for the Hospitallers will
never flee the field of battle. Hard
fighting against brave men was had,
thier numbers against our
determination. In the end we retired
from the field with the accomplishments
and renown we made. His Majesty
came to Methius and told him to pick
one amoung the Hospitallers to be
given the Corrde de Guerre. A
decision the acting Grand Master
found almost Impossible. each and
every Hospitaller fought with heart and
valor upon the field and it was made
hard to choose one amoung the
brethren to take this award. In the end
he chose Thorfinn Voosular, only as a
represenative of the Order to take the
Corrde and wear it for his brother and
sisters.
Sunday found the Hospitallers and the
remnants of Caids army fighting at the
bridge for four long hours. Much honor
to the men across the bridge for they
showed much courage and chivalry
that day. The Hospitallers stood with
the King of Artemisia, finding him
alone, they formed a guard around his
Majesty until he quit the field. Rumors
whispered that the Warriors of the
Westren Sea would make their final
charge. Methius remembered the
Hospitality shown him and Herr Yon by
the people of the Westren Seas when
they visited that fine land. He asked Sir
Anton, Baron of the Westren Seas if
the Hospitaller could run the charge
with them. Gladly the Baron agreed.
Sir Mathias MarkGarden lead the
charge and "Westren Seas" roared
from the lips of all the fighers. Strongly
we went and flew through the enemy
all the way to the other side of the
Bridge.
