The Inspirations of Atlantia, the Ladies of the Order of the Rose, invite you all to gather for a day filled with pageantry and more! On September 4, 2010, those Noble Ladies who have worn the Crown shall send forth Their Champions of the Roses to the field, not for prowess or vainglory, but to pay tribute to the Ideals held dear and encouraged by the Order. This is a day not to be missed!
Each Lady of the Rose shall send forth unto this field:
* A Knight of Noble Quality and Renowned Prowess
* A Bearer of the White Scarf, Honorable and Skilled in the Arte
* An Armored Fighter, who dreams of wearing the Belt and Chain
* One Archer, upon which battle will be decided
* A Herald gifted with a silver tongue
The Ladies of the Rose shall also select an Additional Armored Fighter and Fencer to join their Company from tournaments to be held the morning of the Golden Rose Tournament. Thus shall 7 nobles of our land take the fields and seek to glorify the virtues of: Grace, Courtesy, Honor and Inspiration.
