Challenge for Old Temple Barony

Post by Gren Blockman » Sun Apr 07, 2019 4:30 pm

To Rachael Blackthorne, Baroness of Old Temple and all those concerned:

With the Test-Free Barony Challenge Grant I have received during Season 3 House Dueling, I hereby challenge Rachael Blackthorne for the Old Temple Barony. Considering we were both House Champions, it's only fitting that I challenge Rachael.

I look forward to our impending meeting.

Yours truly,
Gren Blockman

A thick white sheet of parchment was tacked onto the corkboard. The message contained within was written in a precise, left-handed script in black ink. A seal in black and gold wax with the impression in the wax of a panther head was at the bottom of the parchment.

Monsieur Blockman,

Oui, we were both House Champions during the last Season for our respective Houses.

Therefore, I, the present custodian of Old Temple, look forward to the honour of facing such an esteemed opponent in the rings to decide the fate of who will henceforth be the custodian of Old Temple.

I accept your challenge.

A freshly baked Apple and Goji Berry pie was left on the bar counter with a note for Gren.

Skill and honour tonight my friend.

After Rachael selected a best of three format, Gren won two close matches in a row! Gren Blockman is the new baron of Old Temple!

Congratulations, Gren! Well-reigned, Rachael!

After thinking things over and discussing the situation with my teammates, I have decided to declare myself Renegade.

Thanks to everyone who came out to watch House Royal's challenges last night!
