Household Legend

The Lance of St. James:
Handed down through the family since the time of Ector “The Just,” the lance of St. James has been a family heirloom that is over 100 years old. It is said that the spear came into the family’s possession when a man attempted to ride down Sir Ector. The lance betrayed it’s owner and slid from his hand and landed before Sir Ector, who cut down his attacker before retrieving the weapon. It was learned from a nearby monastery that the lance belonged to St. James, brother of John the Apostle. It is believed that the lance will only pierce the hearts of evil men, and will not harm those of good deed and good heart. This was put to the test when Sir Eynon of Cholderton rode against the former knight-turned-monk Tyson of Berwick. The spear glanced harmlessly off the man’s shield despite Eynon’s skill. This has raised questions among those who Eynon currently travels with.
