[ANS] Defender of the Fort XXVI - CANCELLED

It is a time of strength and peace in the Barony of Raven's Fort. Though chorded remnants of once happy dwellings dot her out lying lands, there has been no sighting of the Viking raiders for almost a year and harvest is well under way. No doubt, this time of healing is the fruit of the Kingdom's great victory over the barbarians, stopping last year's assaults.

The scribes thus recorded, The northmen sail'd in their nailed ships, a dreary remnant, on the roaring sea; over deep water. Dublin they sought, and Ireland's shores, in great disgrace. They left behind them raw to devour, the sallow kite, the swarthy raven with horny nib, and the hoarse vulture, with the to consume his prey; the greedy gos-hawk, and that gray beast the wolf. No slaughter yet was greater made e'er in this island?? Even the dour mission bells toll somehow lighter in a new hope for tomorrow. Location:
Barony of Raven's Fort (Huntsville, Texas)
