Well, because he played the bagpipes. And when you don't play the bagpipes well at the beginning, everyone says, "oh, well, he's killing the cat." So anyway - Namron - out at the lake. 1980s.  We're out there, and there's this huge mundane party across the lake that's got rock n roll music, and is just harshing the vibe. Messing with our medieval. So people started yelling, "Send down Catkiller!" So they send Blackfox down to the edge of the lake, and he just lets go. As loud as he can be. And before you know it, you hear from across the lake, "What the hell IS that?! Let's get out of here!" And the music stops, and you hear cars start up, and they leave. They'd been frightened away by the sound of him playing the bagpipes.

How William Blackfox Got Me To Court


Master Chidiock the Younger

'WILLIAM BLACKFOX
The pipes are stilled, no longer will they sound,
To herald the beginning of a court,
No more with joy will revels now abound,
Nor will his voice of songs raise in support.

The quill laid down will not be used again,
To tell Warthaven's tale in simple frames,
No longer at his wit shall we all grin,
Nor smile at his parodies of names.

Such a great soul gone, in but a blink,
And we are left to mourn in sorrow deep,
And though to his fond memory I'll drink,
For now I can do nothing else but weep.

Oh William, it was too soon to depart,
We who remain will hold you in our hearts.


Why Blackfox Was Known as "Catkiller"

by Ragnar of Ragnar's Rock
Well, because he played the bagpipes. And when you don't play the bagpipes well at the beginning, everyone says, "oh, well, he's killing the cat." So anyway - Namron - out at the lake. 1980s. We're out there, and there's this huge mundane party across the lake that's got rock n roll music, and is just harshing the vibe. Messing with our medieval. So people started yelling, "Send down Catkiller!" So they send Blackfox down to the edge of the lake, and he just lets go. As loud as he can be. And before you know it, you hear from across the lake, "What the hell IS that?! Let's get out of here!" And the music stops, and you hear cars start up, and they leave. They'd been frightened away by the sound of him playing the bagpipes.
