Great(er) Pendragon Campaign

Years505and506

The tenth and eleventh year of the Interregnum

In these, the years 505 and 506 A.D…

In the year of our lord and saviour 505, court was held in Sarum Rock as customary. Among the notable aedlings was Cynric who officially adopted the title of Prince after claiming Cerdic as his father. He demanded Lady Ellens fealty but was denied and had to return home in shame.
Others attending were ser Ellain of Estragales and ser Lac.

King Nanteleod calls upon the realm to join his campaign against the filthy saxons of Essex and Angles, the Nadders proudly join his ranks and gain great honor in what is to be known as The Battle On Saint Crispins Day.

King Nanteleods speech before the Battle of Herthford:

If we are marked to die, we are enough
To do our country loss; and if to live,
The fewer men, the greater share of honour.
God’s will! I pray thee, wish not one man more.
By Jove, I am not covetous for gold,
Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost;
It yearns me not if men my garments wear;
Such outward things dwell not in my desires;
But if it be a sin to covet honour,
I am the most offending soul alive.
No, faith, my coz, wish not a man from England.
God’s peace! I would not lose so great an honour
As one man more, methinks, would share from me
For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more!
Rather proclaim it, Silchetser, through my host,
That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
Let him depart. His passport shall be made,
And crowns for convoy put into his purse.
We would not die in that man’s company
That fears his fellowship to die with us.
This day is call’d the feast of Crispian.
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is named,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say, “To-morrow is Saint Crispian.”
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say, “These wounds I had on Crispian’s day.”
Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he’ll remember with advantages
What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words,
Nate the King, Bedford, and Somerset,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,
Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb’red.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered,
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.

The Love of Selwyn

Selwyn Giantsbane proclaims he will venture in to the dark forest Sauvage in search of his legitimate Son and loving wife.

The road is long and treacherous, filled with many distractions and dangers but through the will of God Allmighty they face down the fairy magiks of the forest and the devil himself, giant ghosts and three coloured serpents are no match for the power of Love as Selwyn and his cousin stumble through the forest and eventually find the village his son was taken to at his birth. Lady Collwen, the love of ser Selwyn is found not long after and the forest reveal a way out for the knights and their party. Two months they where gone.

Attendence: Christian, Pontus
