The Monks Tale

When that July with his showers soothe
The drought of March has pierced to the root,
thus pricketh all our nature and our courage
Folk longen then to go on pilgrimage,
In Lochac then to Mordenvale they wend,
To Tocal, there to celebrate reigns end.
The Barony of Mordenvale requests
All Pilgrims on their travels to seek rest
at winter�s mid the coronation true
of King and Queen of Lochac old to new.

The Stewards Tale

As poor and humble monks and nuns we loathe
To tythe pilgrims all for our backs to clothe
but nonetheless these prices must we ask
to bake our bread and fill your cup or flask.

To cater for all palates travelling here
A feast of flavours brought from far and near
shall sate each pilgrim be they ravenous
Or longing for their homelands flavours best.
Take heed and know both when and where your weary feet may rest.

The Heralds Tale

As idle hands and minds are wont to roam
A busy weekend shall entice them home
At tourney, martial prowess shall enthral
Whilst singing entertains both one and all
The arts and sciences shall bring forth light
With music and collegia to delight
Alongside feasting shines our glorious court
Thus all pilgrims shall have contented sport.

The Laurels Tale

Our monastery does more than chant and toil
we love to build and sew and write and broil.
The Arts and Sciences we strive to study
and teach the fairer skills that are less bloody.

Whilst monks may forego weaponry and might
Those pilgrims who desire it may fight
For Tocal is renowned for deeds of arms
Thus bring your armour, valour and small charms.
