From Their Highnesses, September AS LIII, Regarding Crown Tourney

Unto the Noble Populace of the Middle Kingdom, do We, Prince A’Kos and Princess Bella, send our greetings!

As many of our Warriors move hearth and kin to the battlefield of Pennsic to make War, We know Our Parents, the Dragon King, Alric, and Our Dread Mother, Queen Katherine, grow tired and will soon be ready to slumber in Their Winter Years, and We will be ascending the Dragon Thrones. Our minds turn to Our own Heirs. Who, of the Sons and Daughters of the Dragon, will heed the call to Serve?

We welcome those who wish to Honor their Inspiration, to attend and fight in Our Crown Tournament October 20th, 2018 in Our Beautiful Marche of Three Towers. Please submit your letters of intention by email to Us () and the Middle Kingdom Seneschal () by our Coronation day, September 29th, 2018. We do require both Combatant and Consort to hold at least an AoA level award, and for non-Peers of the Realm, please have a letter from a Peer who knows you and can attest to your Dedication and Courtesy, include this letter in your submission packet, please. Include in your email a copy of your state ID and proof of your valid SCA membership through the end of your potential reign. Do not take this endeavor lightly; know, and understand, you may win. Look to your Consort and discuss this matter fully, before you make your submission. We expect, nay, demand Honorable and Chivalrous behavior and fighting on, and off, the tournament field. (more…)

From the Kingdom Seneschal, August, AS LIII

Greetings to the Populace of the Middle Kingdom!

I am in the midst of a policy review and over the next several weeks will be asking for feedback on a variety of issues. Expect to see survey and feedback links on the Seneschal’s page on the Midrealm website (http://www.midrealm.org/). Your input is requested and needed. Topics include officer term limits, required officers, baronial polling, and kingdom event bids. Curia looks forward to your feedback.

Thank you to all of you who volunteer to make all the demos, events, newsletters and webpages, art and practices happen every day. Nothing happens without the efforts of everyone involved.

Thank you.
Caitriona

From the Exchequers, June AS LIII

Greetings and farewell unto the exchequers and populace of the Middle Kingdom,

I want to thank the Kingdom – exchequers, populace, fellow Curia members, and the royalty I have served – for allowing me the privilege of serving as the Middle Kingdom Exchequer over the past two years. Thank you to the group exchequers who have adjusted to the new reporting schedule that was implemented right before I stepped up. Thank you for the work that you do on a daily basis within your groups. I know that it can be a thankless job but I want you to know that you are appreciated.

Thank you most especially to my immediate deputies – the Regional Exchequers and the Kingdom Deputies. The good gentles that have held these roles are the glue that help everything stay together.  They are your pipeline to this office and vice versa.

We accomplished much and I know that I leave the Kingdom in excellent hands with Lady Rhiannon Blaiddwen. I remain in the service of the Crown and Kingdom.

It is with a heavy heart We bid them adieu and wish their Graces a peaceful and well deserved rest as they retire to their Duchy.

Coronation was a truly grand event and We would like to thank everyone who put in an effort to make it special. The event was a great triumph and the heart and hard work showed through. (more…)

Seneschal’s Letter – May, AS LIII

Greetings unto the wondrous gentles of the Middle Kingdom.

I once again have the honor of serving this kingdom as its Seneschal. First, I wish to thank Master Justice MacArtain for his service to the Kingdom.

It is my plan to find a candidate to step into this role quickly. The full job description will be posted in the June Pale, and I hope to have my successor chosen by Pennsic.

Mistress Cerridwen verch Ioreword is serving as my Law Clerk. Other deputy positions may open in the near future, depending upon the interest of the current deputies to continue in those positions.

Furthermore, North Oaken Seneschal Lord Rickard de Als has requested to relinquish his duties. Therefore, if you are interested in serving as North Oaken Regional Seneschal, and live in the region, please apply to me at before June 1, 2018.

In service to the Middle Kingdom,
Dame Caitriona MacDhonnachaidh
