Russian Mountains Pride. 


An outgoing rapier champions scroll, given at Three Mountains Champions in June 2015. 

Ink on Bristol. 
Text and pseudohand by me.

‘Aedan, Alexandria, Baron and Baroness of three mountains, being right well pleased with the valiant services of one Robert Flood as our Champion of the rapier, and wishing that all would know of our most excellent favor, do decree that he shall receive the Honour of the mountains Pride. Let the records of our glorious Barony show the same henceforth. This do we ratify and confirm under our hand and seal, on the occasion of our champions tourney, in our canton of Kaldor Ness, on this the thirteenth of June Anno Soceitatis fifty. ‘

Illumination based on a 13th c Russian manuscript found in The Russian Ornament Sourcebook: 10th-16th Centuries.
