oh ugh I really haven't had time to get this done properly. First pass is probably all you'll get- and it covers all the important bits i.e. the single combats that oolong knows about. Anyone who doesn't know about Sir Marrok is really missing out.


I Of Necoctzicoatl

It so happed that there was at that time a most disworshipful lord of the miscreatures that height Necoctzicoatl. And this lord had many miscreatures and warriors and enchanters of mal-engine. And upon a day there set forth a fellowship, for to meet with them in a fair field, so that the people should not be destroyed in their default. And it so happed that this fellowship set forth from Wing Keep by means of a great enchantment that height FRAN.

II Of those that were infellowship and their allies

And it so happed that there were many good warriors and noble enchanters that set forth for to have ado with the miscreatures of Necoctzicoatl and these were led by Captain Gerrard Knight that was a right good man of his hands and passing well breathed, and with him were Theron Hawkwood, the enchanter, and Paladin Vertonius that was a good warrior and a holy man, and Rose-Annabelle of the Dumnonnii that was a goodly leech, and Lamoriel, that was the stillest of scouts, and Druid Sy, that had sworn a goodly oath that she should never touch no metal, and Arch Pyromancer Physara, the good enchanter, that ventured her body as poor warriors do, and Archmage Faliece Lacflay, the good damosel, and Paladin Redemption, the curteist of warriors, and with them also was Lead Sergeant Caledfwlch ap Brochvale Dumnonii that was a passing strong warrior, and Sergeant Elvin Drude, that was a right good man of his hands, and Corporal oolong, and Corporal Phillip Anders, the wise scout, and Witch Hunter Robin, that was a strong warrior 'gainst the mis-creatures, and Paladin Archer that was seven months a mushroom, and Marshal Bartholomew the goodly leech and a strong warrior. And so this Gerrard set Redemption in particular defence of Rose, the goodly leech and Faliece, the goodly enchanter, for these were both damosels and if any miscreature should offer them hurt then they would surely slay them, and this should be greatly to the disworship of that fellowship.

III How that fellowship set forth

IV How they were foughten with many miscreatures

And so they fought with many miscreatures, but they were of little strength and were without worship, but great hardiness, and such was the enchantment upon them that though they should be slain, they should rise again after a time. And therefore it was the custom of that party that they should await their rising and so strike them down in a body, and this were no worship, for they were but piteous creatures and so they slew them an they might. But Gerrard spake with bobaunce ere they might raise, that they should surely slay them, and as I wottest, this were not to his worship, for they were but piteous miscreatures.

V How came they to a castle, and how they were sore assailed, and how they were relieved

Saturday

VI How Redemption and Physara accorded them

And it so happed that, Paladin Redemption bade them good night and so rested him, but it was the custom of the Amazons that no warrior should speak so, and so they said, good warrior Physara, he hath disworshiped thee, therefore thou shouldst be foughten with him upon pain of forfeiture of thy worship. And when oolong wottest this, he was passing glad, for these were both good warriors, and Redemption was a holy man, and well breathed, and Physara was a passing good enchanter, that did wonders by her mean, and each was passing worshipful, and it was ever his joy to see good warriors foughten with each other for to prove their goodly prowess.

And so on the morn they all arose, and brake their fast, and then was oolong ware that Physara and Redemption spake with one another of the adventure of the day, that was to strive against the scorpion, and spake not of their goodly combat, and so he said, shall thou not have ado with one another? For it hath been said that it were disworshipful of thee to bid this good warrior good night. I take no force, said Physara, but I would be foughten with this good warrior in tourney for to increase my worship and so they accorded them.

VII How they rescued the prisoners of the Amazons of ill-will

VIII How Lamorial behaved her

IX Of the strange devises of the shrine, and of various animals, and of an old man

X How there was a room, and many statues, but at the last they wot not its purpose

XI How Rose strove with Diverse Objects, and at the last overcame them

Right so came they to a chamber, that held a statue, and they entered it, and it so happed that a great wall sprung up betwixt the fellowship, and so parted them, and then there was a box in the hands of the statue, and a key, and a chain, and a lock and key and many links, and a rook. Then was oolong ware that beyond the wall there was great noise, that were the other part of the fellowship, crying, alas for we are parted, but if we get the rook, then might we be united, and also, there are letters here icripture that tell that the statue shall take the rook if it can. Then spake Redemption that it was like unto most worshipful public-key cryptography, for it was the custom of the Paladins of the North that they should have passing strong cryptography, and richly beseen, and that they needs must give the box unto the statue, and that the others must return it with their lock, but keep them their key, for by this device the rook should pass the statue. And then they did by his advice, and Rose strove with box and the rook and many links of chain, and with their key and fastened the rook fast in the chest, but ever the links strove against her, and lay awk, and so these objects kept them, that she might not overcome them.

And it so happed that there came a warrior within that chamber, for to slay them, and so oolong and Redemption and Theron were foughten with that warrior that it might come not nigh to the damosel Rose. And it so happed that ever did Faliece cry out, what dost thou with thy lock? And so Rose made passing great dole, for it seemed her that they should all be destroyed in her default. But rested her a little and lightly voided the statue, and then recountered her with the box, and waxed passing wotting, and at the utterance she overcome it, and then parted they lightly, but it so happed that Rose was paralysed.

XII How, by sudden adventure, Theron Hawkwood was foughten with the Master

Then passed they aways and passed them through many chambers and over a bridge that was guarded by a strange device, but it so happed that they ran foot-hot through this strange adventure and took not hurt, so it was of little moment.

Then were they ware of an old man, and many statues that walked them from place to place, and a chess board, and by sudden adventure, Theron entered that chamber and offered him to play, and so they strove long time, and took many terrible maims, and at the last he overthrew him and all his statues. Now it so happed that none might enter that chamber the whiles they strove, save Faliece and Rose, the good damosels, and those without might not know what happed, and so talked they of many things.

XIII How that fellowship was foughten with the fay of the Vale

XIV How they were foughten with many Drow

It so happed that the goodly garrison brought them meat and drink of the best, and so rested them. And then that fellowship held them that castle ruinous, and made it passing strong, for in the night they wottest that they should be sore assailed. And then by adventure there came many miscreatures, and Drow that were passing good men of their hands, and they foughten with them. And wit thee that these Drow were passing trenchant, for they did all marvellous deeds, and came on wightly, for there harness was of enchantment, and they struck many sad strokes, that it was a marvel that the fellowship might stand. But ever did Gerrard mock them and speak shame unto them in the foulest manner, that he had disdain and scorn to be foughten with such warriors as they were. For ever was the Gerrard a bawdy speaker.

And by sudden adventure, this fellowship was ware that there was a device of much enchantment fast by that castle, and so divided them and hastened them to have ado with that enchantment and those that went were Archer that was a good man of his hands, and Robin that took miscreatures in especial to be her foe, and oolong the good warrior, and Theron that was a good enchanter and Physara the noble enchanter. And so departed them suddenly and recountered they with a grimly mis-creature that barred the path. This miscreature, said Archer, I will have ado with, therefore pass thee on, and so parted them.

Now leave we noble Archer, and speak we of that fellowship that ran foot-hot to the ceremony of mal-engine, and, coming upon them suddenly, overthrew them and put them to the worst. Then searched they all that place for strange things and voided them lightly to recounter with Archer, that ever and anon was foughten with that strong miscreature. Now wit thee that it were a marvel that Archer had not been overthrown in that time, and so made they passing good cheer. And then fought they all with that strong creature, and lashed together eagerly with swords, and mightily, now tracing and traversing on the right hand and on the left hand. And sometime they rushed together with such might that it were a marvel that they might stand. And so at the last they overcame it, but Theron was passing sore wounded, and then returned they to the castle.

XV Of the most worshipful combat that was between Redemption and the Drow

Now speak we of that fellowship that held the castle, that were Gerrard and Redemption and Vertonius, and many others, and so the book maketh mention, they were sore assailed by many foes, for there were many Drow, that foughten by enchantment, and with them were creatures of shadow, and foulest of miscreatures. And wit thee that these Drow wove such mighty spells that it were a wonder that any might stand, for they dealt many sad strokes that no harness might aid 'gainst them. Then it so happed that Redemption was foughten with such a warrior, and so were they ware of each other's worshipful prowess. Fair warrior, said that warrior, it would beseem me to have ado with thee and no other, for I would fain be foughten with so good a warrior as thou art. And gat him a great sword. Then Redemption dressed his shield afore him, and so he drew out his mace. And then they came together a soft pace, and wonderly they lashed together passing thick the mountenance of a quarter hour or ever they breathed. And so they traced and traversed, and waxed wonderly wroth, and either behight other death. And when Redemption beheld his fellow's sword over-hylled with his blood it grieved him sore: some while they foined, some while they struck as wild men. And so they fought them long time.

XVI How oolong would be foughten with him, and how Redemption rebuked him.

Now it so happed that they while they fought them, that oolong came upon them and lashed at the Drow, but Redemption cried out, hold thee! For this combat hath been given me, that I should have ado with this good warrior, for the increase of my worship, and therefore thou shalt not strike him, but an thou wouldst disworship me, and so oolong would not meddle with that Drow.

XVII How the Drow rebuked his fellow

Right so in that medley cam a second Drow, that espied that Redemption was assailed passing sore and so bethought him that if he should aid that first Drow then they might lightly overthrow him, and put him to the worse, but the Drow cried out, strike not this good warrior, for me list to have ado with him, and ye do not worshipfully to smite him down suddenly, and so that Drow passed him aways, and had ado with oolong.

XVIII How Redemption had the victory, and so won much worship

But at the last the Drow waxed faint, because of his enchantment. Fair warrior, said Redemption meseemeth we have assayed either other passing sore, and if it may please thee, I require thee of thy goodness tell me thy name, that I might do thee worship for it beseemeth me that thou art a passing good warrior. Sir, said the Drow to Redemption, that is me loath to do, and moreover, neither shall I do ought else, for I am slain by my enchantment, and therewith he died. And so Redemption made dole, for he was a good warrior and a right good man of his hands, and worshipful. Alas, that thou should be slain by thy enchantment, said Redemption. And so Redemption won great worship.
