BFS News for August 22, 2016

  • Their Royal Majesties need award recommendations. Each week for the next few weeks we will highlight different awards. At Cattle Raids there will be Eo Fyrd and Hirth meetings, and at Valor there will be Stile Fyrd and Hirth meetings. The Fyrd are the AOA-level martial awards, and the Hirth are the GOA-level martial awards. The Eo Fyrd and Eo Hirth are for Equestrian activities. While one does not necessarily need to ride to take part in equestrian activities - ground crew are always welcomed - one does need to ride to qualify for the Eo Fyrd and Eo Hirth. In addition to general riding ability, skill at mounted games and mounted combat, support for the Calontir army, and honorable behavior on and off the field are taken into account. The Stile Fyrd and Stile Hirth are orders which recognize Cut & Thrust prowess. They also require support for the Calontir army, and honorable behavior. Take a moment to think of any Equestrians or Cut & Thrust fighters you have seen skillfully practicing their art on the field, or plunging into battle bearing the colors of Calontir.
