The Chronicle of Eoforwic of Hyrcanos ben Jacob Copyright (c) 1989 A.J.S. Nusbacher
With great respect and devotion do I, Hyrcanos the Judge the son of Jacob Porto of Oporto, present this chronicle to my employer the Lord James MacAndrews (of glorious name) in honour of his liege lord the Duke Fionnbarr de Taahe, may he live for many good and long years. Long have I laboured in its making, and long have I polished the bare innards of my purse, preparing to honour the remuneration which must surely come.
I have read the past chronicles presented to Duke Fionbarr (may he live for years that are good and long), that from Etienne de l'Isle, and that from William of Roncesvalles and Trevarius (the Trierite). I have read the histories compiled by the great Duke himself into the famous Tales of the Midrealm Kings. I have read the histories of Orlandus Ambrosius. Now do I attempt to make a chronicle of Eoforwic which combines a great deal of the brevity and accuracy which befits a chronicle as well as some of the wonder and glory which accompanies an history.
