Naked bretonnian lance is a blasphemy. Blasphemy against aesthetics, against bretonnian knightly myth and against reason. Our knight must be seen in the frey. To whom glory and honour belongs must be obvious instantly. Bretonnian lance “adorned” with pennants and banners made of flat paper is a crime also (after few trips to hostile territories paper will brake and paint will spall).
