As the compass and the navigational stars give guidance to travelers, so do certain gentle persons give direction to our lives by their example. The Order of the Pyxis shall recognize such gentles in the Kingdom of Northshield who, by their deeds, exemplify the ideals of the Society for Creative Anachronism. We have noted that Kou no Toshikage has researched his period culture extensively and is always dressed for his persona. So it is with great pleasure that We, Siegrfried King by right of arms and Gwyneth, Our Queen, do invite Kou no Toshikage into the Companionship of the Order of the Pyxis. Done this 31st day of March A.S. XLI at Bardic Madness in Our Barony of Caer Anterth Mawr.
