Court "Got Ya!"

Well, I have to give credit where credit is due. Court at the close of Northkeep's Winterkingdom had one of the better "Got Ya!" moments in recent history.

Rabbit (Sir Cais Lepus) went up in court and addressed the populace, explaining that he had promised his quires new belts after formally taking them as his students. He called Centurion Angus Gunn up, and after some very touching words presented him with a handsome red Squire's belt.

Then he called Viggen up, and offered some more very touching words to the man. At that point, he turned towards the royal herald (HL Etienne) and asked for the other belt. Etienne turned, looked down at something, then went wide-eyed. He exclaimed that he had screwed up, apologized to Rabbit and the audience.

"I know exactly what happened to it." Etienne said in a panic. "I handed it to someone and forgot to get it back before court started. I completely screwed up. Um um... Don't worry. I... I... um... I can get this taken care of in just a minute." he turned square with the audience again and started projecting in his normal court-herald volume. "Would the people whom I handed a small cloth bag please step forward... I think that would be..."


Yes, they finally decided to make Viggen a knight.

And that was just a priceless "Got Ya!"
