Greetings from your Kingdom Chatelaine

Greetings from your Kingdom Chatelaine, Mistress Giovanna Adimari!

Hello! I wanted to take a moment to talk about being a Chatelaine and why having this position within your group matters. Noticed I didn’t say Office. Sure, it is fantastic if you have a designated officer who is your Chatelaine, and if you don’t have one – I entirely encourage you to do so!

But what I am talking about here is having someone, or some people, who take up the mantle of being a Chatelaine for your local group, and are actively working to help bring in newcomers and KEEP THEM! (more…)

Exchequer’s Letter for November, AS LI

Greetings all…exchequersm

I appreciate all that everyone does to help keep your local groups, regions, and the Kingdom running smoothly. By following the policies and procedures that have been set out by my predecessors, as well as continuing to update and refine them, I hope to make everyone’s job easier. So over the next year, I will be soliciting ideas and opinions from you. I will create an online response form so that I can more easily collect and collate the data (so please don’t start sending me stuff yet). (more…)

Their Majesty’s Letter To The Populace, November AS LI

Greetings to the Midrealm from Edmund and Kateryn.King sm crown

It has been quite a whirlwind of a beginning for Our time on the Dragon Thrones. Coronation was great fun with a surprise return from the watery deep, the return of ancient treasures, an arch of swords, and some hauntingly familiar processional music. Our deepest thanks to all who made that possible.

By now you have seen some of the challenges We have put forth: the King’s (formerly known as Prince) Challenge and the Merry Band Challenge. Edmund challenged the Rapier community to meet Him in selecting His Rapier Champion. But We have one more challenge, one for the artisans, performers, and craftspersons of the Midrealm. (more…)

Bards, Entertainers Sought for Crown Tourney

Their Majesties call any entertainers who wish to perform at feast after Crown Tournament to volunteer. I am looking for two background instrumentalists (one of whom is already Michael Breddelwyn Peterson) and three featured performers. Their Majesties prefer songs that are not sad, should you be a singer. Any performer may apply. Featured performances should not exceed six minutes. Please enquire by contacting me on Facebook.

We are going with the main outdoor plan at this time. Armored combat, rapier, archery, thrown weapons, and youth combat should plan to be outside as previously discussed at the staff meetings. Marshals: consider adjusting your tournament schedules to get as much in as possible earlier in the day.
