    Hear Ye! Hear Ye!

    Be it known that Lord British hath challenged me, Darkstarr to a fencing match whilst both wearing puffy shirts. I, Darkstarr hath accepted said match pending the achievement of $3.25 Million in funding! Huzzah!

    Be it also known that should such funding be achieved by Release 3 (Feb 20) then Rustic Dragon shall train Darkstarr in the fencing arts and this training shall be captured in a video montage with music!

    Be it also known that should such funding reach $3.3M by Release 3 (Feb 20) then the loser of said tourney shall go jump in a lake!

    Sincerely,
    Darkstarr

    To Sum Up:
    • $3.25M = LB vs. Darkstarr Fencing in puffy shirts
    • $3.25M by Feb 20 = Training Montage
    • $3.3M by Feb 20 = Loser jumps in the lake

    Huzzah! Be it also known that I, Rustic Dragon, hath taught many a budding fencer whilst studying in University. Mine qualifications to instruct a beginner are sound and I hath studied under Olympic trained fencers and grew under the tutelage of fencing Maestro Paul Geraci. Let us pray that my skills will be enough to prepare our valiant combatant....

    Be it also known that Darkstarr hath never fenced whilst Lord British is a trained fencer of much renown. What wast I thinking?

    You should probably ask Nob the Stable Boy for some help. He's got all the answers. :)

    Maybe some randomness or chaos will save you DarkStarr!

    Hopefully, the rest of the staff will be on hand to cheer on their favorite :) Would really love to see that training montage video... I'm sure the duel should prove to be quite interesting (and probably quite brief, baring a miracle)...

    Once upon a time...
    Young Shamino Salle Dacil was in fact a mighty wielder of the rapier!
    In the mundane lands his skill grew to compete in state wide tournaments.
    In the lands of the SCA, he competed and occasionally won major tournaments, defeating many other great combatants!

    But that was many years ago...
    Decades have past since his last battles.
    Age and weight have settled in around his bones.
    Creaks and groans now accompany his bending knees.

    Yet his finest hours may still be ahead of him!
    Who is this Shamino Salle Dacil, I speak of?
    For those uninitiated into the depths of the lore of Britannia, it is one and the same as...
    Lord British, who is one and the same as...
    Richard Garriott!

    Well, while Darkstarr, and his fancy new coat of arms, may look tough!
    And while he may in fact be a somewhat younger man.
    His chaotic ways will not save him in this battle.

    No, sadly, he will fall.
    He will be afforded the right to give up.
    He will be afforded the right to flee.
    But perhaps he will choose to take what fate has offered him...
    A quick death at the hand of Lord British!

    :)

    Well all I can say is.. I hope Starr is a good swimmer. :)

    What was that line Lord British told Blackthorn in Ultima IX? On my worst day I could best 10 the likes of you? :)

    Too bad we don't have a witty retort from DarkStarr ;)

    I think Darkstarr may need the lucky 'Jesus' card to spin in to walk on water.

    An epic rebuttal.

    I look forward to this puffy shirt duel... especially a training montage video. Have it backdropped by "Lord British Comes" by Space Bards. Lol

    Perhaps Darkstarr is a user of magic? There is tale that Lord British's Achilles heel may be magic! Beware my Lord if you hear him speak the words "In Flam Grav"! Tis the devil's tongue he speaks with!

    I'm getting the urge to don a puffy shirt of my own. :) Perhaps when I watch the video....
