Dragon Heart: The Olde Code

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Lamech on Sat Jul 29, 2017 12:48 am

The Olde Code

Inside the table's circle,
Under the sacred sword.
A knight must vow to follow
The code that is unending,
Unending as the table—
A ring by honor bound.
A knight is sworn to valour,
His heart knows only virtue,
His blade defends the helpless,
His might upholds the weak,
His word speaks only truth,
His wrath undoes the wicked.
The right can never die,
If one man still recalls.
The words are not forgot,
If one voice speaks them clear.
The code forever shines,
If one heart holds it bright.

I, Lamech, choose the Old Code as my own. I am hereby sworn to valour, to speak only the truth, to use arms to defend the helpless, to use might to uphold the weak. My heart knows only virtue. My wrath will undo the wicked. To this honor, I purge my sword, and claim knighthood. By the Order of the Dragon, through the power that be, I vow this oath by the blood of my hands, in life and in death.
"Mortals fear what they do not understand. And they hate what they fear..."
