Good Gentles, have you ever found yourself with more to pack at the end of Pennsic then you did when you set out from home, only to find that your vehicle seems to have shrunk? Is your kitchen area full of boxes of cereal, pasta, jars of peanut butter, and jugs of bottled water you can’t remember buying? (more…)

Here is the complete list of entries in the just-completed Kingdom A&S Faire. Divisional champion entries and Pentathlon entries and scores are at the bottom. (Update from the Kingdom A&S Minister: Some of these scores have been appealed. Please note that not all of the revised scores are not on this list because not all the re-judging is complete. When the appeals are done, this article will be updated.)
The following was just provided by the Mayor of Pennsic:
In compliance with new Pennsylvania Commonwealth Law and due to potential medical risk considerations involving martial activities the following policy is now in effect:
Minors authorized in martial activities and bearing a gold tape diamond on their helms on which their parent or legal guardian’s cell phone number is written, may participate in battles. Parents should have the cell phone in hand in case of emergency.
Update from the Midrealm Earl Marshal: “The mayor has incorrectly stated that the gold diamond for rapier combatants should be on the helm – it should be on the cuff of the gauntlet, per Society Rules.”
Congratulations to Their Royal Highnesses Nikolai and Serena. The Dragon Realms future is secured and the populace rejoices with you in this time of celebration.
It was an honor to serve as the Middle Kingdoms Tournament Herald for these past two years and to end with such a wonderful tournament was truly a happy ending to my time in this role. (more…)
Greetings unto the Middle Kingdom College of Heralds and the populace of the Midrealm from Meister Konrad Mailander, Rouge Scarpe Herald,
This is a reminder that as of April first new heraldry forms went into effect for the Kingdom. Any new submissions need to be on these new forms.
Please discontinue the use of all old forms. The new forms should have Laurel v. 3.0; Middle v1.0 (Laurel Approved 10 Dec 2014) at the bottom of the form and “v3_rev1” as part of the file name. These are the forms currently available on the Middle Kingdom Heraldry website.
It has been nearly two months since this has gone into effect and we are still receiving submissions on the old forms.
Heralds please go through your supplies and remove or mark old forms so that they do not get used. If you have the blank forms saved to your computer go through and replace them with the new forms.
Using the wrong forms is a cause of administrative return by Escutcheon. We would really like to avoid having to return a submission to be redone simple because the wrong form was used.
Please pass this missive on to your groups.
In Service I Remain,
Konrad Rouge Scarpe
