Unto Our kinsmen come greetings from Siegfried & Elizabeth,
We hope the warmth from your hearth is providing comfort in these long winter months.
First to inter-Kingdom matters. King Owen and Queen Genevria of Ansteorra have paid many compliments to Our noble Kingdom and it's army. They have sought Us out and time and time again to let Us know how much They desired to stand shoulder to shoulder with us on the field at Gulf Wars. We have found Them to be good and just people. Accordingly, We are honored to ally with Them and the Stellar Kingdom of Ansteorra as they make War against Their triskelion foemen ofTrimaris.
Wewere also very honored to have elevated two new peers of the Realm and Nordskogen's 12th Night. Ivan Matfeevich Rezansky was elevated to the Order ofthe Laurel for his mastery of period embroidery. Baron Maol Mhichil mac Gille Pheadair (called Mikey) was elevated to the Order of the Pelican for his extraordinary wealth of service to the Kingdom. Vivant for Nothshield's new peers!
Itis with great regret that We find Ourselves unlikely to attend Gulf Wars. Theday We won Crown Our thoughts immediately went to Gulf Wars and all the fun We would have there with Our Northshield brothers and sisters. Thought We doubt that she will put Their Highnesses jobs in jeopardy, We will be spending the weeks surrounding Gulf Wars welcoming Our new heir, Emily, in to the world. If there is any way either of Us (or all three) are able to attend We certainly will. In Our likely absence We leave the Northshield forces in the capable hands of His Highness Tom. We hope you all have a splendid time.
Siegfried and Elizabeth
Rex et Regina Northshield
