We were bestowed the honour of being graced by his majesty King Henry and the Grande Duchess for the Battle of the Kings, that King Henry himself might judge the fighting skill and grace of the opponents. Brian and Maverick chose to fight for her Lady's honour, while Honcho and DuvalMagic chose to fight for the honor of King and Country.
Honcho showed his bravery in the pre-game by select "random" civilization, and was awarded the might of the Britons; a choice King Henry much approved of.
A good start was had by all, with each contestant mounting to the Castle Age before engaging in combat. However, Honcho and DuvalMagic were soon to learn that a bay of water separated them from each other and placed the enemy square in the center of them.
