From Starkhafn Anniversary, 4/15/18, a true tale from Shawn of Starkhafn, that speaks of the rivalry of Lord Kazetani Tarou Noritatsu and Lady Brig inghean Uateir.
The tale and re-tale of the friendly challenges between Bree-Anne and Tarou has been tallies and years in the making. At Starkhafn Anniversary they once again continued their ... Match
There was a twist of fate of one centimeter at 45 yards that made all the difference... Below is a Skalds witness and truth-saying - Shawn of Starkhafn
As witness and Marshall to this epic showdown at Ragnarok. There were many Witty Barbs and swooshing of Woden blessed Arrows.
This Skald report as thus:
Yore these two mighty warroirs; thy Kin of Finn and Foreign Tarou,
Dropped to sunny stone;
Dvergar, Svartalfar, and Dokkalfar
Hoisting bolts that slew many a Draugr and Fenrir,
Staining fast the many hued Bifrost,
the rumbling crash, the felled Jotun Auf Utgard.
On They raced, the Vying pair, laughing in the wind.
Bedeviled be they care, With frosted Breathe,
Howling challenge to all that came.
Tarou rose fast, and let two fly
Upon Loki True and Hela false they dived
Bree-Anne rose To witness true.
On Glory, and Further Honor,
Bree-Anne redoubled and let fly two by two and yet two more.
Breaking Loki's Spell on Mjolnir cast.
Thy Bridge was lost, broken with the enemy rise high in tide, On came thy serpent Auf Migard
Together, they grinned and loosed the last of their shafts til quiver dried.
Last Seen, voices in the wind, they together felled Jörmungandr thy Named.
"Upon Loki True and Hela false they dived"
