Dragon Herald Pale Letter, August AS LII


I hope this missive finds you well, and you are finding ways to cool down as we head into the heat of Pennsic. While at War, if you find yourself wanting some shade, the Heralds’ Point is always in need of artists and people to color submissions. We have shade, fans, and a place to charge your cell phone. I would like to congratulate Lady Ragna stórráða Úlfsdóttir, our new Escutcheon Herald. Please send her your heraldic submissions at:

Job Opening: Shield Herald

Greetings unto the members of the Middle Kingdom College of Heralds from Meister Konrad Mailander, Dragon Herald,

With Jean Yves being chosen to succeed me as Dragon Herald at this coming Coronation we need to find a replacement for his current office, Shield Herald.

The Shield Herald is responsible for helping to organize heraldic consultation points at events to help people with their name and armory submissions. They should set up consult points at events when possible, especially large Kingdom events and act as a resource person for others that wish to set up consult points at events.

Applicants should have experience consulting on names and armory and be familiar with the submission process and SENA (the rules for submissions).

If you are interested, please send me your letter of intent by September 1st to: 

In Service to Crown and College,

Konrad Dragon

Kingdom Chatelaine’s Letter, February LI

Greetings to all from your Kingdom Chatelaine! As we start a new year, brave the cold, and look forward to warmer months, it is also time for me to look for a replacement as Kingdom Chatelaine. It has been a fantastic couple of years working with the Kingdom, becoming a Great Officer of State, meeting and assisting countless newcomers and getting to know so many of you – thank you very much for this opportunity! I am still and will always be a Chatelaine.

The Chatelaine’s Office is responsible for helping develop, support, encourage and strategically create best practices for recruitment and retention within the Society for Creative Anachronism. Recruitment is central to the maintenance and growth of our Society, but also equally important, is the continued presence and participation of existing members. (more…)

We have a very awesome opportunity to better outfit Midrealm Royal Encampment at Pennsic, and cut the work for the staff in half if not more, but we need your help. We need to raise some funds for a new storage trailer that can be brought to site and will cut down on our need for the Cooper’s trailer and or the use of personal trucks/trailers to haul items to site from the land of trailers off in the abyss! We also will be purchasing a food trailer that will make the kitchen easier for all to use for the meal plan of those camped in Royal as well as any parties such as the Known World party and any other needs that are deemed fit determined by the kitchen coordinator! This is such a fantastic idea and we need your assistance to make it a reality!

With that I would like to kick off this fantastic endeavor with a cook book by the Middle Kingdom’s populace. Period or non period foods, all will be welcomed as long as they are YUMMY! Please submit any recipe that you are proud to serve to guests with a category of Appetizers, Soup, Bread, Breakfast, Main Dishes, Side Dishes, Desserts, and Divers Sundries!

From TRH to All Archers of the Midrealm

All toxophilites draw nigh and pay heed to this challenge of Edmund, 94th King of the Middle Kingdom (almost)

In the spirit of that most famous of archers, Robin Hood, I am minded to pull together a Merry Band of archers: skilled archers who are strong of arm, keen of eye, and generous of heart.

To that end, I challenge all archers to meet me on the line and prove yourselves worthy of this Merry Band. To join, you only have to do one simple thing. Beat me. At each event I attend I will take to the line and post a score. Any and all can shoot against my score, provided you demonstrate the generosity of Robin’s band by providing canned goods/non-perishable food items as your entry fee (all of which will be donated to the local food pantry). Any who beat me can join my Merry Band of archers and will receive a token signifying their membership. Each event I shoot at you can shoot against me again and augment your badge.

So check your fletches, wax your strings, load up your grocery basket, and come join Edmund’s Merry Band!
