Letter from Their Majesties, April AS LII

Greetings to the Middle Kingdom.

Our thanks to all who joined Us at Gulf Wars this year. We hope that you enjoyed the War as much as We did and that you had a safe trip home. We could not be more proud of all of you. Our archers, artistans, and warriors are known throughout the Society for their skill, courtesy, and teaching.

In the coming weeks We will be investing Lord Áindle Ó Diarmada and the Honorable Lady Alianor bat Asriel as the next Baron and Baroness of North Woods at It Takes My Child to Raze a Village. Our thanks to Maximilian and Gwenllyen for the their service. Later, We will be investing Sir Ulrich Halfdan Ulfsson as the next Baron of Shadowed Stars at Three Saints and Tournament of Defense. We would thank Fergus and Maggie for their service as founding Baron and Baroness. We have long believed that being a Territorial Baron or Baroness is one of the hardest positions in the Society, and both couples did an exemplary job of guiding their barony.

We hope to see you at an event soon.
Cellach and Vukasin

From the Middle Kingdom Chronicle, April AS LII

Greetings, all!

My term as Middle Kingdom Chronicler is at a close, and I want to express my gratitude to everyone that I worked with during this time. I want to thank all of the local and baronial chroniclers who are keeping the records and history of the Midrealm safe. I especially want to thank the regional chroniclers (Kirsten, Jahanara, Muriel, and Elena) for keeping tabs on things in their regions. Your
help and vigilance is greatly appreciated. A special thank you to Mistress Genoveva, who took over the thankless task of producing The Pale every month. Finally, I cannot thank Mistress Genoveva and Mistress Marissa enough for selecting the William Blackfox Award entries for the Midrealm last summer while I was on medical leave. (more…)
