Oh, I so need to read that series. Still need to find my copy of book one.
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!

I'm in the middle of a very bloodthirsty battle with Robin Hood as my leader and the sheriff of Nottingham's men getting chopped to bits.
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

'The Brave and the valiant
Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'
