The day dawned cool and warm, the dew lingering as the sun rose in the sky over the tourney grounds, and the city rushed from its slumber with the excitement of the blood about to be spilled, the glories about to be won. The creak of leather and the crash of metal drowned out any songs but their own as the knights and princes of the land began to assemble. Teams drew to their respective sides of the field to face one another, in all too convincing mockery of the armies they would so easily become…
Pennants danced in the breeze, colors bright as the ideals they promised their owners would uphold, as around the edges of the field, the noble audience filled their accustomed seats. They lounged in their boxes, raised above the commoners, their laughter a strange counterpoint to the clash of swords and armor as the shadows of the last years were kept at bay with wine and merriment.
These were the days that songs were written of.
