Matis - The ring of trust (mergertale)
(This is one of the tales I wrote for the mergerevent for a Matis to tell.)
We have seen many battles on our days since The Swarming began
We have been opressed by this foulness for a long time
Yet still how ill it all may seem there are those men that have the courage to
stand up against what they feel is wrong
courageous men that will not step back once their mind is set. Men that give
all for the safe sake of Hominkind no matter whom the foe might be.
There is a distant tale about courage honour and trust. A tale that by time has
shaped our very history and is forming our future to come.
It is about our Great King Yrkanis and when he met hard resistance and foul acts
from his own side.
Born as decendant of the great King Yasson he lived an adventurous life.
When his father fell under the treachury of hiw own brother Jinovitch, Yrkanis
tried to seize the crown and throne.
Though not successfull and imprisoned Yrkanis did not loose hope nor did his
strive for justice fall.
He escaped from this prison and in fear Jinovitch orders the death of Yrkanis.
Our king had loyal followers that entrusted their life to seek the safety of
Despite many attempts Jinovitch did not get another hold on Yrkanis even though
he tried and once almost was successfull.
As the woods were not safe for Yrkanis he moved towards a place where he could
be safe and sound for the time being.
It was then he met Will Styler a brave and honest man. He took upon himself to
give Yrkanis a place to rest and to be safe.
Under this time they talked about their heritage and destiny.
When the time came for Yrkanis to move on he gave Wyler a ring from his hand
with the words "Let this ring symbolize what we have achieved together. And be
a sign of the trust between us". Wyler accepted this ring and put it on his hand.
When time had passed and Yrkanis felt the need to reclaim his heritage of the
throne he once more stood aside Still Wyler. And valiant they fought.
When battle was over they once more talked to eachother. It was then Wyler
gave back the ring to Yrkanis with the words "I have long carried this ring
on my hand. And everyday I have felt that it has strengthen the bond between
us. This is no ordianry ring, it is a symbol that shall live on. Our bond
shall not brake as it is so strong."
Yrkanis accepted this and took the ring back knowing that the words of Wyler
was whoever that carries this ring shall feel a strong bond between him and
the one who gave it. This was the ring of trust.
And on this day we have travelled here to extend this ring you.
May it strengthen the bond between us and keep a firm trust!
*bows honourably and extends his open palm where the ring lies*
