Young wanderer amidst the trees
At the parting of the great waters
Many are your triumphs in battle.
Nurtured with spears
Comforted by the clash of shields
Lord Wulfric of the Woods
Yours is the blood of a warrior.
For your exceptional fighting prowess
And your willingness to teach
And assist others
We, King Roak of Ealdormere
And Queen Jocea Valente
Are minded to bestow upon you
The Award of the Scarlet Banner.
Bear it ever with pride
And protect it with honour.
