Thank you, Robin.

Not all tears are bad--sometimes they are tears of joy.

His Excellency, Robin Wallace, Master of Arms, Viscount (Morguhn's first heir to the principality), and Count was named victor of the Amethyst Tournament, fighting at our request in Morguhn's stead.

Morguhn had been looking forward to that tournament since it was just a sparkle in Duke Malcolm's eye. He pushed himself, and us, so he would a) earn a slot, and b) be able to win. He earned two. He gave one to Khelak. But he kept the other for himself. He was bouncy about it. He put up a new pell, made new swords, refitted his armor. He glowed in anticipation when he spoke of it. He was determined to win it, for himself, for us.

Thank you, Rob.

Here's a link to the event announcement. Fighters have been earning places in the tourney at every major fighting event since Ice Dragon last year.

It was a lovely event, and if you haven't read the court report from it, you should. Very nicely done.
