The kingdom is in danger.
First there was the goblin problem. Now there are pirates threatening the coast, trolls at the bridges, an evil wizard or two, and of course, the dragon.
Not just any guardsman can take on these evil forces. Our warrior must be trained in combat, handy with swords, shields, daggers and spears. They must be light on their feet, fit, and wise to deal with such evil invading the kingdom. We’ll definitely need a knight. Becoming a knight is an arduous process. A knight starts as a page, works up to squire, and finally, after years of training and shadowing, they earn the mantle of knight. They are the best warriors our kingdom has to offer.
But we don’t really have time for the whole ‘training” thing (sounds like that dragon is getting hungry now (not to mention the trolls and pirates). Is your kid up to the task of defeating evil? Are they agile and swift? Smart and cunning? Do they have some mad sword skills? If so, our kingdom could use their help. Just deck them out in the proper armor: our Child Black Knight Costume. It’s a black tunic printed with a shield, a mesh hood and sleeves, with a faux leather belt and gloves. Once they have the outfit, they’ll need a weapon. Once they find that, they have our full blessing to go take on the dragon… if they’re up for it.
