Court Reports of the Kingdom of
Malcolm and Tessa
July 23, AS 40 (2005)
Barony of Thescorre
the Report of the Court of Their Royal Majesties, Malcolm and Tessa,
Queen of Æthelmearc. Court held on
23, AS 40 (2005) at Pax Interruptus in Their Barony of Thescorre.
Giulietta da Venezia, Reporting Herald, with the assistance of
THLady Matilda Bosvyle de Bela Acqua.
Their Majesties invited Master Bedwyr Danwyn into Their Presence, to
question whether he would accept elevation to the Most Noble Order of
Laurel for his skill at gunnery and making lighting devices. Master Bedwyr indicated that he would accept
the accolade, whereupon the heralds began to read the scroll. Upon hearing the word “fire,” His Majesty
interrupted and asked if the herald had said “fire.”
Since she had, His Majesty called for the “21 gum salute,” and
began pelting Master Bedwyr and the populace with small squares of a
labeled “Bazooka.” The herald then
declared that Their Majesties had a Dead Welshman in Their Court. Phillippe, the Thescorre Chirurgeon and Dead
Guy Collector appeared, crying, “Bring out your dead!” and attempted to
Master Bedwyr away, over the Master’s protests that he was not dead. After some argument, Phillippe asked His
Majesty to do the math―as Bedwyr was born in 550 A.D., and the gunnery
which he was to be recognized dates from 1450 A.D., it is not possible
to be 900 years old. Phillippe produced
appropriate paperwork proving that the death had occurred, and called
for a winding sheet for the still-protesting Bedwyr, whereupon Bedwyr’s
protests were stilled by a good bonk upon the noggin with a very large
boffer. Bedwyr, having fallen well and
truly dead, was taken away to the Instant Changing Room by Phillippe. To be continued...
