Greetings unto the people of Northshield,
Our time on the Griffon Thrones is coming to aclose. We have had a wonderful time and couldnot have done it without the help of many wonderful people. We want to thank the staff and volunteers ofthe many groups that have hosted us during our reign: the Shires of Korsväg, Mare Amethystinum, Inner Sea, Wynandremer (who was kindenough to share their inaugural event as a full status group with us), Rokeclif,Turman dem See, Falcon’s Keep, Rudivale, Shattered Oak, RivenwoodTower, and Vilku Urvas; the Canton of Blachemere; the College of Svatý Sebesta; and the Baroniesof Nordskogen, Caer Anterth Mawr, Jararvellir , Mag Mor (Calontir)and Windhaven;and the Kingdoms of Æthelmaerc and Gleann Abhann.
We would also like to thank the current andformer members of the Stallari Council as well as their deputies for doing as excellentjob. We asked them to do manyadministrative tasks that the populace may not see but that keep our gamerunning smoother.
Finally, we would like to thank our staff.Without THL Tosten du Calais, our Chamberlain, and his lovely assistants HE Juttavan der Bruegghen, HE Johann Deri, THL Aine ingen MaelPatraic, and Lady ChecheyigenOyugun we would have been much less organized and had so much less fun. Our gift coordinator, HE Setembrina Bramante,and web Goddess, THL Teffan Koerwent, helped us look good in other venues. OurChampions Master Edwin atte Bridge, HE Kolbrunna Gisladottir,THLArmond le Charpentier, and THL Peter Petrovitch, traveled the KnowneWorld with us and were kind enough to dress alike and add a bit of theater toour courts. We chose them not asrepresentatives of specific groups but for how they play the game and they didnot disappoint. The families of our staffalso deserve a thank you for sharing them with us. We could not have had a better group to workwith.
We would be sad at leaving these seatsif we were not aware that we have such great people to follow us. Their Highnesses Wulfgar and Devon have beengreat fun and we look forward to seeing them on the Griffin Thrones.
Vladimir and Petranella
