Brennen Suibhne, Award of Arms

Man of the West
The water-runes at the ford
Tell Us of your gifts
Your sword carves silver sigils in the air
Ruddy jewels smoulder in your hands
You labour without stint

Brenne Suibhne has demonstrated
Skill in rapier combat and
In the making of jewellery and leather goods
He serves faithfully at events and demonstrations

For these reasons do We
King Nigel and Queen Adrielle
Give unto Brennen Suibhne
An Award of Arms
And all rights and privileges thereto.
He will henceforth be known
As Lord Brennen Suibhne.

Done this 6th day of March
Anno Societatis 44
At Winter War
In Our Shire of Trinovantia Nova

Wording, calligraphy and illumination by THL Asa Gormsdottir

Motifs based on the Staffordshire Hoard, 7th century Anglo-Saxon metalwork

Calligraphic hand based on the Lindisfarne Gospels (8th century)
