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!
As I step down, we are still looking for individuals to take up the position of regional exchequer for Pentamere and South Oaken. I am happy to discuss the requirements of the positions with you via electronic communication or in person at an event. The position is administrative and does not require handling of monies for any groups. As the regional exchequer, you oversee the monthly reporting and collection of Domesday reports and provide assistance to local groups. If you are interested, please email me at for additional information.
Speaking of Domesdays – I know that this is the February issue, however, I also know that it is available before the end of January. With that said, Domesday reports must be in to your regional exchequer in hardcopy with signatures before the end of January. Most of the regional exchequers will ask that you send an electronic copy to be checked before you send the hard copy so that errors can be fixed or changes made before you print and send all of the paper. Please contact your regional exchequer or the Domesday deputy, Master Ooyama Tarou Hideyasu (newly elevated!) at the emails listed on the MK exchequer webpage.
Included in this issue of The Pale are the final comparative balance sheets from 2016. We just received them at the end of December back from the corporate office and this is my first opportunity to share them with you.
In service to the Kingdom,
