First, We would like to welcome Our Heirs, Stephen and Ailleanne, to the Royal Family. Vivant!
As We mentioned in a previous missive, Our Banner Bearer tournaments will be held soon. The rapier tournament will be held at Nordskogen’s 12th Night, and the armoured combat tournament will be held at It’s Only a Flesh Wound in Jararvellir. This position is an excellent opportunity to learn more about commanding the army and should provide great fun to those who will bear Our banners.
Speaking of the army, this is a good time to note that Gulf Wars draws ever nearer. It would please Us to see record numbers of fighters on both the rapier and armoured combat fields—as we are One Kingdom, so shall we field One Army. The schedule is changing this year to allow for one more day of war point combat, which will make it even more worthwhile to attend!
For those who were not previously aware, Windhaven’s Baronial Investiture and Our Tournament of Chivalry will be held on February 14 in the Barony of Windhaven. Please try to make time to share in this joyous occasion and partake of Windhaven’s renowned hospitality. And, of course, fight!
Our reign has provided Us with opportunities to see the breadth and depth of Northshield’s talent, skill and deep bonds of friendship. We are also a most hospitable group, and We wish to thank you all for that hospitality—not only to Us, but to all who participate. It is a rare and precious thing in the modern world, and We treasure that it runs so freely in our society.
In joyous service,
