From Their Royal Highnesses, March, AS LII

Greetings unto the most noble populace of the Great Middle Kingdom!

We hope that this missive finds you in great comfort, basking in the joy of revelry and friendship from this seasons’ Yule and Candelmas celebrations. As you warm your hearts and feet by your glowing hearths and sup cups of mulled wine to ebb away the chill of the winter’s grasp, know that peace is fragile and, as the sun warms and chases the cruel fingers of winter, so does it fan the flames that does incite the blood to boil and set the Dragon’s face with grim visaged war. Already do We shine our helmets and mail, sharpen Our spears, axes and swords in preparation to follow the King and Queen of the Dragon, Cellach and Vukasin, as They march South to lend aid and arms to our allies. To the Men-at-Arms, Knights, support staff and all members of the populace who travel with Their Majesties, We send Our heartfelt gratitude. Know that We too shall stand the field providing Our broken bodies as ransom should Their Majesties have need. (more…)

From Their Royal Majesties, March AS LII Letter

Greetings Midrealm!

The days have been growing longer and warmer. That can only mean one thing — it’s Gulf Wars time! We have long been looking forward to leading Our troops to the lands of Gleann Abhann for a week of battles, classes, camaraderie, and shopping. With the recent hurricanes in Trimaris and Ansteorra, those two Kingdoms have decided to combine forces this year. With an eye towards maximizing fun and keeping the sides even, it has been decided that the Kingdoms will figure out the sides on site at Gulf Wars. We’ve been working on some other plans for Gulf Wars – things such as paying the army in coin, pickup melees, and a few other secret plans. We ask you to don a Pale and journey south with Us.

One of the privileges of the Crown is to issue proclamations that carry weight for the duration of Their Reign. We issue such a proclamation. The swastika is to not be used by any subject of the Midrealm.

We look forward to seeing you and the future fun we will have together.

Cellach and Vukasin

Rouge Scarpe Herald changeover

Greetings unto the College of Arms of the SCA, Middle Kingdom College of Heralds, and the populace of the Middle Kingdom from Meister Konrad Mailander, Rouge Scarpe Herald,

It is my great pleasure to announce that my successor in the office of Rouge Scarpe has been chosen. Her Excellency Dame Estelle de la Mer will be taking over as external submissions herald for the Midrealm effective at the end of this month. Estelle has previously served as Escutcheon Herald (internal submissions) and Dragon Signet as well as other offices. She currently serves as Andelcrag Pursuivant.

This office has been my great pleasure to hold but it is time to pass it on.

In Service to Crown and College I remain,

Konrad, Goldstreitkolb Herold

From the Kingdom Exchequer, February AS LII

Greetings unto the exchequers and populace of the Middle Kingdom,

As the new year begins, changes come to the Middle Kingdom…

I began my term as Middle Kingdom exchequer in May 2016, and, as the year 2018 arrives, the end of my term is heralded. I will step down from this position in May at the Coronation of Their Highnesses, Alric and Katherine. I am happy to announce that we have, as a Curia, chosen a strong candidate to succeed me – Lady Rhiannon Blaiddwen. Lady Rhiannon is the current Barony of Red Spears exchequer and has a wealth of modern world experience that ensures that the Kingdom is in good hands as I step away. Please assist me in welcoming her! (more…)

From Their Majesties, Jan-Feb AS LII

Greetings Midrealm!

We hope your days are filled with warmth and glad tidings. Recently the days have been cold, rather frozen, but We have found warmth in the company of new friends and old.

We thank the Barony of Northwoods for hosting Kingdom Twelfth Night and Countess Serena for organizing Our Tournament of the Arts. We were once again reminded of the talent and range of the Our Midrealm Artisans. We think this bodes well for the upcoming Arts and Sciences Fair Season.

Looking forward, We are excited about the upcoming Tournament of Chivalry at Val Day and the Baronial transition there. We hope you come out and test the skill of Our Chivalry.

Stay warm and safe!
Cellach and Vukasin
