report from the court of Northshield, 23 February AS47 in the Shire of Falcon's Keep, presided over by her Majesty, Luce, Queen of Northshield.
In attendance upon Her Majesty were His Excellency Robert, Lord of Jararvellir; Their Excellencies Edward and Deja, Lord and Lady of Nordskogen; and His Excellency Grimmund, Lord of Windhaven.
The court was heralded by Maol Mhichil mac Ghiolla Pheadair, Polaris Principal Herald, with Kolfinna Hrafnkelsdottir as signet.
There were two sessions of court: a Laws Court in the early afternoon; and the main court in the evening.
The Laws Court included the reading in two changes to the law, one non-substantive and one substantive and hence previously published in the Northwatch.
The non-substantive change was to revise the enabling law for the Order of the White Scarf, X-1550 in three key ways:
1] The name of the order is now formally the Order of the White Scarf of Northshield.
2] The order now has a badge: Sable, on a pale Or between two compass roses argent, a rapier sable.
3] The order's companions are now explicitly entitled to bear a white scarf bearing either the badge of the order or the populace badges of Northshield.
The substantive change was to revise Article VII to simplify and align it with the Governing Documents; details are omitted from this report, since it was previously published.
The Evening Court included the following business:
The marshals of the day's tournaments announced the winners.
Those who authorized Rapier and Armoured combat for the first time were recognized.
Her Majesty, as has become custom, bestowed tokens upon those for whom this was their first or second event.
Her Majesty announced that Northshield is allied with Trimaris for the upcoming conflict in the south.
