Trial by Combat
April 2013 (high school senior)
Stalking the White
Prince Valdemar Atterdag
Denmark's three-leopard sigil.
Our protagonist-knight has dashed up a siege-ladder, slashed a first defender (bottom left), swept aside the polearm of a second – not before he clipped an antler on our helm (top left) and just as he took a shaft to the chest (bottom right) – in a vigorous motion that swayed our ladder sideways (Newton’s third law) such that as we side-vault the wall we narrowly escape the streaking crossbow bolt (top leftish) of a third defender (off paper) upon whom we consequently focus our ink-black visor.
