Queen's Gambit at the House of Heroes, Tarsakh 1st, 1401 Dale Reckoning

I humbly welcome all of you to the House of Heroes and I thank each and everyone of you for coming here to celebrate the Queen's Gambit. This holiday is important because it gives us the opportunity to not only feast and enjoy each other's company, but to challenge ourselves. During these difficult times of doubt and uncertainty these aspects of the holiday hold true and remain important to not only remember, but to live and practice through our gathering here to share a meal and drink, as well as games.

An important part of the Red Knight's divine teachings to us is that in times of War we must prepare for Peace, and in times of Peace we must prepare for War. It is because of this lesson in particular I have invited all of you here today. Despite the War, we must prepare for peace, we must remember what it means to be good family, friends, and neighbors to each other despite what uncertainty we face. We must not let the pressures of the day be our excuse for forgetting who we are and how we live together. I am not asking you to forget the troubles outside the House of Heroes this day, I am not asking you to pretend they do not exist.

I am inviting you to make the best of this day and of each other, despite of the troubles outside this Temple.
I am inviting you to remember what makes our lives worth living, and worth fighting for, so together we may celebrate what we have, and defend it.

Defend it not only from outside threats but from our own insecurities and fears.

This brings us to using times of Peace to prepare for War.

By gathering here to embrace community, to celebrate each other and overcome our fears in remembering what it is we live for, we are steeling ourselves and each other for what mettle testing the War that awaits may throw our way.

Now please, I do believe you have all had enough of my feeble efforts to offer a sermon....so allow me to provide far more practical and tangible guidance?

The roasted lamb awaits near the fires were each of you is invited to fill your plates till you have had you fill, and the casks of wine wait ready and open for your ever eager cups.....May the Games Begin!
