Breaking Missive: Prince Edmund Feared Lost At Sea

Foul winds bring bad tidings as sad news has reached Our shores. As many of you know Our Heir, Prince Edmund, set out upon crusade to recover relics of the Midrealm pillaged by heathens from the east. While on this journey, the ship in which he sailed was engulfed in a tremendous storm and has not been seen since. It is feared lost at sea with no survivors.

This post will be updated with more news as it comes available. 

Request for Proposal – New Thrones

Greetings, Craftspeople of the Midrealm!

Your Minister of Regalia has been diligently working behind the scenes with Their Majesties and Curia to create a request for help.

Both Their Majesties’ and Their Highnesses’ travel thrones are used on an almost weekly basis, and both sets are starting to feel the wear of constant use. I have been given approval to start collecting bids for new thrones, to replace both sets. There are a few objectives we would like to have fulfilled with the new thrones.

  1. Wooden thrones – preferably a nice hard wood that will be able to take some abuse
  2. Able to be broken down into small pieces that can fit into a vehicle
  3. Comfortable
  4. Regal-looking
  5. Able to be maintained
  6. Ability to visually see a difference between Monarch and Tanist thrones and between male and female

All bids should include the following:

  1. Design (drawing, picture of similar designs, etc.)
  2. Cost
  3. Timeline to completion
  4. Small portfolio of other works by the artist

I will be collecting bids until August 15. Please submit all bids, questions, thoughts, etc. to Please share this request with anyone that might be interested in helping create new regalia for your Middle Kingdom.

From the Midrealm Historian

Greetings Midrealm!

As I continue to work on building a representation of our Kingdom’s history, I beg for your inspiration yet again. If you were looking at a list of the great Kings and Queens of the Middle Kingdom, what information would you want to know about their reigns? I am leaving this open-ended, so please feel free to send an email to . I cannot promise to include everything, and it will most likely start simple in the beginning and I can grow it over time. But, I am interested in hearing from YOU! Please post/send comments by this upcoming Friday, March 4th.

Thank you,
Lady Marissa von Atzinger

Kingdom History Web Site Survey

Greetings to the Middle Kingdom from your new Historian!

If you were to visit a Midrealm History website – what would you expect to see?! I’ve put together a survey of topics for you to rate based on what you think is important to include, along with space for you to submit other wonderful topics that I haven’t thought of! I know many of you will have fantastic ideas, and I would greatly appreciate your responses so that I can prioritize my next steps for this project. I invite you to share this survey far and wide throughout the Kingdom, via this Book of Faces, email lists, or however you choose to communicate with others. I will keep the survey available until 11:59pm EST on Friday, October 30th. Thank you in advance for your assistance!

History in the Midrealm 

Master Konrad writes:

At Rose Tournament Saturday we had the privilege to witness on a single day in the Midrealm the elevation of worthy individuals into ALL FOUR (non-royal) patent orders:

Defence (Master Adam Comyn) , Laurel (Mistress Asalah), Chivalry (Sir Cameron, Count), and Pelican (Master Rijckaert).

It was the first time it happened in the Middle, has this happened in any other kingdoms before?
