patrons of the knighthood. His mind clearing of the thought of what is to

and now he awaited the ceremony. 

Slowly the other knights who have made it to Sancrist began to circle around
the white stone to start then knighting. Soft chants of solamnic prayers
begin to fill the glade like a song. 

Lord Railen slowly makes his way along the knights and comes to stand before
Blaine. He places on hand on his shoulder and gives a nod. blaines head
looks up as he slowly draws his sword with his right hand placing the hilt
over his hard and the blade vertical. 

" Repeat afther me Blaine di Caele" Railen states in a stern tone. ""I do

courage, heroism, justice, and honor and to solemnly and faithfully follow
the edicts of the Triumvirate. I take this pledge freely, without coercion
or expectation of reward, sworn in this holy place before our lords
Paladine, Kiri-Jolith, and Habbakuk, and in blessed memory of those who have
given their lives to this noble cause. Est Solarus oth Mithas, sifat." 

Blaine repeats word for word. slowly he moves his sword to hold it by the
blade presenting the hilt to Lord Railen. With a steady hand Railen takes
the sword. Blaine lowers his head as Railen taps each side of his shoulder
with the blade. 

"arise Sir Blaine Knight of Solamnia." Railens words ring out loudly. Slowly
blaine stands and Salutes Railen. Retriving his sword he claps hands with
