Lars Eriksson, Order of Thorbjorn's Hammer

His excellence on the field
Is matched by patient scholarship
An ardent teacher, a long-standing marshal
Our general at Pennsic on the rapier field
Father of the Ealdormere Academy of Defence
The beating heart of fencing in Ealdormere

For his valiant arm and staunch service,
We, King Etain au Naval,
Winter’s might upon the mountain
And Queen Valfreya Greenspear
Joyful hope-bringer
Induct Lars Eriksson into
Our noble Order of Thorbjorn’s Hammer

He has the right to wear the badge of the order:
Gules, a Thor's hammer within a bordure embattled argent
We also give unto him a Grant of Arms
And the right to bear his arms
With the Crest of the Kingdom.

Done this 12th day of February
Anno Societatis 45
At Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre II
in Our Incipient Canton of Swans Keep

Wording, calligraphy and illumination by THL Asa Gormsdottir

Motif based on carved bed posts found in the Oseberg ship burial, early 9th c.
