HYW(Cadet1): Fealty of Duke of Bourbon

A new Hundred Years War game (Cadet1) has just started, and I am joining in as Duke of Bourbon (PC#175). I expect a lot of intense but fun experiences to follow shortly. As always, first thing you do once you joined a game is to swear an oath of fealty to your king, so here is mine.

Votre Majesté Philippe VI le Roi de France,
Les seigneurs et les Dames de Chrétienté,

Fealty and loyalty I swear, as the head of the House of Bourbon, descended from Saint Louis, and overlord to the fiefs of Montlucon, Vichy, St Eloy, Comment, Rive-de-Allier, and Riom. My pen and sword are for the glorious cause of the Throne of Light, in both peace and war. God is my witness.

Louis, Duc de Bourbon

Crossroads of the Elements

Once upon a time when I was young and gullible, and a huge external 28.8 kbps modem was the bomb, I used to play Crossroads of the Elements. Now ten years later I am old and grouchy, still I would love to play that game eventhough it hadn't been around anywhere on the internet for years... until recently when my good friend Jay found it. Apparently the creator of Crossroads decided to put it back online, and is even entertaining the idea of expanding the game! Of course, my blog suffers inactivity even more now, but that is the price I am willing to pay in order to be Wizards of Earth, Water, Air, and Fire. "Power surrounds us like a cloak!" Fxs
