Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I've been trying to track down a minor historical event for this thing I'm writing, and I can't, and it's driving me completely bonkers.
As I remember the story, a castle came under attack, and the lady of the castle was escorted to safety in the middle of the night by a lone knight. After reaching safety, she had him put to death in order to protect her honor, as she had been scantily clad in her nightclothes at the time.
I'm pretty sure I read this in James Reston Jr.'s Defenders of the Faith, which I was borrowing from a friend and no longer have access to. That would put this whole scene somewhere between 1520 and 1536.
If anyone recognizes this story, I would really appreciate the name of the lady involved. I've been Googling for about an hour so far with no luck. Thanks!
