From Their Majesties, December AS LII

Greetings to the Middle Kingdom,

Our deepest thanks to the Barony of Carraig Ban for hosting Our Crown Tournament. We were impressed with the comportment of both the combatants and their inspirations. The tournament was well-fought and We are very pleased to have Alric and Katherine as Our Heirs.

Mistress Halla has stepped down as the Kingdom Minister of Arts and Sciences. She has Our thanks for her work in the office, most especially for her work on revising the criteria for the A&S faires. Sofya Chyudskaya Smolyanina has agreed to serve as interim KMOAS. We thank her for agreeing to serve in this capacity.

We look forward to seeing many of you in Our upcoming travels.
Cellach and Vukasin
