The Lineage of old
Our brave squires have been training together at Vagon castle for the past year. They are under training from Lord Amig and Sir Uwain but are about to impress on the castellan of Vagon castle, Lord Elad. The squires are set to make a number of challenges to prove their worth. In the first challenge they ride a joust against a manikin. Some fail and some succeed, sir Uwain was very soft on his squires where Lord Amig was harsh and unforgiving. During the joust some fell but others did quite well for themselves. The second challenge was a race, which was won by Carangeir and shortly after Gwanon came to a second place. Brehus was third followed by Godwin and lastly Branan. Branan being the stone faced person was kind of hard to read if he was happy or angry over his presentation, or if he even gave a damn. The last challenge was as Lord revealed, a duel. Lord Elad was now quite interested to join in himself and Carangeir had both the honour and misfortune of facing him first. Elad withdrew from the challenge to give the rest a sporting chance. The dueling challenge was finally won by Brehus after defeating both Branan and Gwanon
The squires dressed and joined the feast. As the squires walked into the feast they where given an unwelcome looks from Baron Gregor and Lord Gilbert, their uncle. Lord Elad gave them their first real quest. To hunt down the bear who was scaring the peasants. If there was such a bear. The hunting leader would be the one who would win the joust they created. In the joust Godwin was the victorious but only after he had knocked Gwanon of the saddle. The squires left as soon as they could and would ride late into the night. They meet with the village priest old Gar who offered them shelter as they where here to kill the bear. The next day the squires split and hunted in small groups. Godwin and Brehus found the bear first and soon Gwanon would too. Brehus landed the killing blow on the bear and thereby claimed it as his. The bear was dead and the peasants cheered as the bear was skinned and butchered.
As they rode with the peasants dragging the meat they came across a farm. The farmer was being raided by some few bandits so the valiant squires drew their swords and attacked. The bandits where soon undone and killed by the squires. They did not even have time to talk to the farmer of the farm until they saw King Pellinore on his ghostly white steed charging by. The squires followed and asked if they could help. Carangeir understood that he was obsessed with finding this questing beast. Only Carangeir had heard of it, but Brehus was the one who got excited and wanted to help. But the king was much to fast for the squires to keep up with and they lost sight of him.
Back at Vagon castle they showed Lord Elad the mad bears pelt. It was huge, and Lord Elad who did not believe that the bear was real quickly wanted to throw a feast where the squires was invited. The squires bathed and cleaned themselves for the feast. And so with a great feast the year of 484 went towards it end.
