From Their Royal Highnesses

Greetings to the populace of the Middle Kingdom.

This is Our last Pale letter as Prince and Princess of the Middle Kingdom. On May 6th, We will ascend to the throne of the Middle Kingdom and continue on Our royal journey. We would like to thank everyone who has supported Us on the throne so far. Our royal household and many friends have made Our journeys easier and allowed Us the opportunity to range far and wide, in and out of kingdom. Our time on the throne as the summer King and Queen is short and We have much to do. (more…)

From Their Majesties: The Midrealm On The March

Greetings unto the noble people of the MidRealm from Edmund and Kateryn,

First, We travelled to the east on Crusade to rescue the stolen relics of the Midrealm. Those relics are now safely back in the care of Our Regalia Minister.

Then, We travelled south to Crusade for peace between Our Royal Cousins of Trimaris and Ansteorra and with the might of the Midrealm at Our side We were able to achieve an uneasy peace.

But these Crusades have dwindled the Kingdom’s resources, so We must now travel a short distance but with great purpose: to replenish Our supplies of the great Black Stone so needed in the making of good steel for armor and weapons.

So do We call upon all sturdy warriors of the Midrealm and those who support them to load the caravans, sharpen swords and arrows, and oil the machines of war and join Us in Our Crusade to Blackstone Mountain in Aethelmarc to obtain the needed stones.

Yours in service,
Edmund and Kateryn

From Their Majesties, January AS LI

King sm crownGreetings to the Midrealm from Edmund and Kateryn

As the calendar turns from 2016 (an “interesting year” judging by the old Chinese proverb) into 2017, We hope to find you and yours in good health and good cheer. The New Year, for many, signifies the beginning of something new, a fresh start, a chance to start from a blank slate. The last vestiges of pine linger in our homes, and our minds turn to what we will accomplish during the year to come. We hope to do all We can to make 2017 a better year than 2016 and We hope the same for everyone. (more…)

Their Majesty’s Letter To The Populace, November AS LI

Greetings to the Midrealm from Edmund and Kateryn.King sm crown

It has been quite a whirlwind of a beginning for Our time on the Dragon Thrones. Coronation was great fun with a surprise return from the watery deep, the return of ancient treasures, an arch of swords, and some hauntingly familiar processional music. Our deepest thanks to all who made that possible.

By now you have seen some of the challenges We have put forth: the King’s (formerly known as Prince) Challenge and the Merry Band Challenge. Edmund challenged the Rapier community to meet Him in selecting His Rapier Champion. But We have one more challenge, one for the artisans, performers, and craftspersons of the Midrealm. (more…)
