Unto those who wield rattan or rapier in this great barony, Sir Iohann, knight marshal of Caerthe sends greetings.
For many years we have reaped the benefit of good lands and a warm place in the fine hall where the arts of sword and chivalry have been practiced. As harvests of late have diminished, the hall has passed to legend and we now find ourselves in search of a new home. We have sent forth scouts throughout the land and found good fields where all might come together to maintain their skills.
With flashing sword and shining shield, let us grow the forces of Caerthe and bring back the enthusiasm which has seemed lacking for many months. As the winter snows melt, the campaign opens before us from Condotierre to Battlemoor, and on to many foreign wars in Calontir, Aethelmarc, and Caid. Let Caerthe rally around the black and gold banner!
In this new era I call out to all my brothers of the Chivalry to come forth with your squires and sergeants and join me in advancing the skills of all in the barony. Our numbers and vigor have paled beside the energy and strength of our rapier fighters. As such, we will join with them to meet together in the same place, on the same day. Let us see their good example and bring back the practices of legend.
Yours in Service to the Dream,
Sir Iohann der Vuhs
