I very much enjoyed my sojourn in Lyrnessos. Enjoy!

I'm currently in 1700's England checking out the family life of the mad king.

Gillengaria, on a mission for the king.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
