Fir Áraig
« on: December 29, 2011, 02:13:32 PM »




"Truth in the heart." 
"Strength in the arm."
"Honesty in speech."

The Celtic Code of Chivalry, imposed by the Druids, according to St. Patrick





 
We are the Fir Áraig, litterally "Men of Bond", or Oath. We are arachta, oath-friends, bound to each other and our pay master by the strength of our oath and bond, our word is true as is our claidh, our blades. We are cró, we are diberg, we are in fian. Warband and comnáma to the highest bidder, to whom we pledge our solid uist, our oath. We welcome unto our fold any who would accept the oath in bondage and the trials that accompany the Fir Áraig - Goidíl, Gall-Goidíl, Albannaich and Lochlannach, both Dubgaill and Finngaill, and we question not our brave díbergachta's beliefs - be him Christian or of the geinti, the heathens.


 Our banner is the Finn Fíadh, the White Stag, a noble creature woven deep into the lore of our ancestors. A creature as noble and gallant as any found. It is the animal of the aes sídhe, the fairy folk, and as such we treat it with apprieciation and respect befitting of such an auspicious beast.

 Our long fhada, vessal, is In Muirbran, the Sea-Raven, and her prow has carved paths from Eriu through the Irish Sea to the Suðreyar and the Norðreyjar where our oath and service has been bought by toísech, jarl and alike. Through these lord's and their battles our, dear, Fir Áraig have been coined as "In Gráscar", "The Rabble", but we embrace this epithet with pride and without shame!

We are the Fir Áraig, "Men of Bond", and our oath is true.

This is very promising indeed - looking forward to seeing more of "In Gráscar" on the fields of battle!
No seriously, good luck with this, Ualraig!  :)

Didn't you mean it the other way around?? Unleash fury on your battle-brother?

Oh woops!

It was meant to say, "We shall unleash that fury in the name of Harkon, if he is out battle-brother!!". I.e on the same side as us. :)
