Elevated by: Bardolph & Brigh
Date of elevation: 16 Aug, 2001
Here, for the curious, is the oath I spoke at
my elevation in Midrealm Court at Pennsic XXX.
Below is the English translation. Note that
the text is not the same literally - few
transliterations make much sense in a new
language - but I feel that the spirit of the
oath rings true.

Tadaima yori, chűgi o chikai,
Chűgoku no za ni keii o hy˘ itashis˘r˘.
Ware, izutoki mo makoto no bushi ni naru koto,
Yowaki o mamoru koto,
Ue-sama no jűjun taru chűshin naru koto,
Ikusa no sengun ni arawasu koto nari.
Ware, izutoki mo reigi tadashiku
Yűtokumono, yokimono o y˘go itashis˘r˘.
Kore zentai, kono Kamiizumi Munenori isshin chikais˘r˘.

[From this time on, I pledge my fealty/loyalty [and]
I make my homage to the throne of the Middle Kingdom.
I, at whatever time, will be a true warrior,
will protect the weak,
will be a true, loyal retainer,
will appear in the vanguard in times of war.
I, at whatever time, with proper courtesy,
will defend the righteous and the weak.
[To] all of this, I, Kamiizumi Munenori, pledge
with all my heart.]
