Breath holding not required. The grovelling open letter has been dispatched to all those who can read, and a copy has been put up on the noticeboard on the main highway. The local count has totally capitulated. It now remains for the local duke to accept this and formally allow the local count's teams of knights to enter his tourney season. Now the mayhem can continue.

However ... the copy on the noticeboard on the main highway is poorly copied, stuck on sideways and not given a heading as an apology. You have to look at the back of it to see what it really is. What the local duke thinks of this will be interesting.

The local duke has written to the baron stating that the new dues that knights have to pay to the baron to go in the duke's local season of tourneys is too high, and requesting that they only pay a lesser charge if they do not enter any big tourneys. The baron has responded that the increase is out of his hands as the king has upped his dues which the baron is largely only passing on. The baron has summoned envoys for the duke to appear at the baron's court to argue their case in detail.

One of the local duke's local knights who was asked to be an envoy has possession of some damning information. Another duke held a big tourney last year that allowed knights who had only paid dues to allow them to joust in their feudal home to take part. This big tourney had the patronage of the baron himself, and displayed his coat of arms and everything. To this local knight, that seems to set a precedent for the local duke's case.

Autumn is coming!

Word has come back via despatch rider that the baron is allowing knights that only play in one season of local tourneys organised by the local duke that they only have to pay last year's level of dues. Yee ha!. This does not apply to this local knight as he adjudicates big tourneys and may enter a tourney put on by the king later on in the year. Of course the baron is sending his treasury officials along with enforcers to ensure that he gets his dues.

Autumn is here!

They may or may not bear some resemblance to a certain conversation held here last year :)

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away someone was accused anonymously of violating "professional" standards by infringing on someone else's privacy with respect to testing equipment in a "tourney" situation when they reported here merely that some had failed - not whose, so they have become more circumspect in telling the "story".

I but spin a yarn or two about knights, tourneys, counts, dukes, barons and kings. :) :) :)
