Company of the Defenders of the Tower

Awarded to Dag Thorgrimsson, called Blackwolf (modernly known as Jeff Skevington)

By the Barony of Cynnabar on 2017-05-13

When Dag Thorgrimsson came to these lands, he
introduced and taught to others the skills which the people
long afterwards have practiced. He is a great warrior,
expert in all exercises, strong and very sharp in battle.
When sitting among his friends his countenance is so
beautiful and dignified, that the spirits of all are exhilarated
by it, but when he is in war he appears dreadful to his

He can make his enemies in battle blind, or deaf, or terror-
struck, and their weapons as blunt as a willow wand. Yet
the warriors he trains rush forward without armor, as mad
as dogs or wolves, and kill people at a blow, and neither
fire nor iron tell upon them.

Thereupon We, Kasha and Ermenrich of Cynnabar, take
the silver goblet, fill it, and say, “Success to all Cynnabar:
And this cup to the honor of Dag Thorgrimsson, a true
Defender of the Tower.”

Let none countermand Our words.
