Season 3:Episode 7: STORYTELLING SPECIAL

newstag.png

A while back I started a project researching the names given to the GOA level awards here in Atlantia that are named after creatures (Kraken-Heavy, Sea Stag-Teaching Fighting, and Golden Dolphin -Service). What I found out from interviewing some early Atlantians who helped name these awards was that there's no real backstory---they thought an "Atlantis Theme" was cool.  So I've sent out to integrate actual Atlantian history into legends and myths that could be used in ceremonies, lore, anything the populace wants.  I'm also working with our current Poet Laureate on compiling these along with poems about the other awards that aren't beasty based into something a little more comprehensive.   This is the first of the Straeon Atlantiadd (The Atlantian Stories in Welsh): The Sea Stag.

Special Song Release

onevoice.png

 You may have heard of some of the trials my kingdom has undergone as of late, and hopefully you've heard of the good and gentle folk that have stood up in the face of really, really bad things.  One of those standing first was Duke Cuan Macdaige. I had complimented Duke Cuan on the good work he had done in the stand our populace has taken against predators and people who wounded and divided our Kingdom. He told me that if I wanted to thank him, I'd write a song--but not about him. He wanted a song about how Atlantia is bigger than any one bad person. A song defining Atlantia as a people in service to a dream, not to any man. I collaborated with my brother bard Master Johann, and this is that song.

An Elegy for Syr Aldrydd Ffestiniog and Others of The Chivalry We Have Lost: An English Sonnet

This is a reading of the sonnet I entered as part of the Poeta Atlantiae competition at Ruby Joust.  This poem was read aloud in court as a memorial to Syr Aldrydd (mka Rich Stryker).  I had received requests for a recorded reading, so I produced this short mini-sode.  

Where Lay we the hero with his heart and

hands stilled? Where lay we these most revered bones?

Be there a tomb that can hold such a man 

Be there craftsmen to carve such a stone 

Shall we bury his sword and give it to rust

Shall his shield bear his weight one last time

Return the white belt and spurs in his trust

as to heaven’s high spires he climbs

Shall his chain be returned to his king

for such a soul can no longer be bound

For we forget the last line of the oath we all sing

when we bend knee to sovereign and crown

We mourn the loss now of our comrade and friend

til death takes us or til the world ends.

Ld. Gideon ap Stephen
