Sir Kenneth spurs his mount to the far end of the clearing. The Black Knight of the Forest Adventurous does likewise. The format for such encounters is three long move sticks apart. At this distance both knights closed their helms and tilted forward in the saddle and urged their mounts on.
The rest of the party watches from mid-field, the anticipated point of contact.
Contact is made and Sir Kenneth finds purchase for his lance tip!!
The Black Knight is unhorsed in honorable combat.

The noble adventure continues with a third try at crossing the fjord. The party of knights knows full well that the river is guarded by a knight which requires a test of arms on foot to prove worthy of passing the fjord he defends. A herald is sent ahead to ascertain if this noble knight defender is still active and in the area. Sir Cadric becomes impetuous and spurs his horse to action in a headlong charge for the river crossing. His activation brings him into contact with the Fjord Knight! In a moment it is over. A crash of the lance tip of Sir Cadric and the Fjord Knight with his fish adorned helmet is defeated and sent headlong into the river. And then enchantment occurs. The fjord knight vanishes and a large carp the size and shape of the helm crest splashes into the water. It shimmers in the afternoon light and then swims away regally upstream
The death and escape of the Fjord Knight (enchanted).
As he vanished a large regal carp was seen to swim away upstream.
Our party crosses the fjord. A little embarrassed at the number of attempts this took and a little chagrined at the reckless impetuosity of sir Cadric. -1 chivalry.
Sir Kenneth hails a black knight. The knight challenges us to a joust. We consult the Song of Arthur and Merlin manual and set about demonstrating martial courtesy.
To be continued......
