Deputy Kingdom Seneschal

Greetings unto the Populace of the Outlands and the Barony of Caerthe,

We write to you today to announce our choice for the Baron and Baroness of Caerthe.

It was a very difficult decision with all 3 of the possible couples being a viable and healthy option to lead Our premier Barony. We thank everyone who ran and put themselves in front of the spotlight. This is not an easy thing, however there can be only one.

We believe a Baron and Baroness should have a plan for where they hope to take the Barony in the coming years. They should have a passion and charisma for the SCA and for the people of the Barony in with they hope to lead. They should be approachable, welcoming, and willing to ask the advice of others. They should strive to serve and not be served. We work with our officers as a Crown or as a Coronet in a team to better the Outlands, the Society, and the Dream. We hold our respect for nobility and royalty high. As the officers do much of the day to day responsibilities the nobility does much of the recruitment, stability, and problem solving.

With a very close baronial polling it is our choice to name Lord Domenico Forestani and Lady Maria Castelana the heirs to the Coronet of Caerthe. We know that their joy of the SCA, new perspective, and love of the Outlands will help them along their path. We ask all of the people of Caerthe to embrace your incoming Baron and Baroness and support them in any way you can. We are stronger when we work together.

We hold high the continued ideals of the society and to furthering the joy the dream can bring to so many. We look forward to Our Kingdom A&S and the transition of the Barony of Caerthe.

Your King and Queen,
Jaxarticus and Anna, Rex and Regina Outlandium

Greetings, good Gentles! Our gracious Queen wishes it known throughout the land that in Their Majesties’ good Barony of Fontaine Dans Sable a War Practice and a feast took place this Saturday past, on the 20th day of January, AS 52, being 2108 in the common reckoning of years. During this day Their Majesties saw fit to hold Court, and important business of the Kingdom of the Outlands was thus conducted. The following is a report of that business. The Queen, in Her Grace and Poise and Beauty, was and is quite perfect. Any mistakes in the following words are the sole fault of the Herald, and none of Hers.

It was a pleasant day. Cool, perhaps even cold at times, but quite perfect for fighting. I did not think to count the combatants, but I suspect there was somewhere between twenty and thirty fighters on the heavy field. We were there to train for War, as commanded by our King, yes. And perhaps there to increase our individual prowess in the Knightly contest of Arms, that as well. But mostly we just had a wonderful time jumping about and bashing each other with sticks. After the melees, many of the unbelted fighters called out to the Knights, entreating them to meet them upon the field in single combat that they may test themselves against the Chivalry. Many of the Chivalry answered this call. All in all, it was a lovely morning.

At some point in the day the Fencers held a tournament to determine the next Captain of the Silver Tynes. Lord Septimus Marius Belisarius stood victorious on the field, and through his own prowess claimed that singular honor for his own.

During the day there was a delicious donation lunch, games, and other entertainments in the feast hall, and the Barony held a silent auction with many lovely items available to be bid upon.

During the afternoon Their Majesties met in circle with the Right Noble Order of the Pelican, and afterwards spent some time with certain Kingdom officers event stewards to discuss the upcoming event of Battlemoor. In the late afternoon Their Majesties held Court and conducted that business which was needful to the Kingdom.

Their Majesties announced that the event of Battlemoor would be held at the original site, albeit at a different date. They invited all present to join them at one of the premier events of the Kingdom of the Outlands, held the 4th through the 8th of July.

Lady Sawyer of Fontaine asked for and was granted admittance into the Comite and was thus made an attendant of Their Majesties.

Lady Adriana Lopes de Rodas was recognized for her excellent skills in the realm of Arts and Sciences with admittance into the Order of the Argent Hart.

Mistress Elizabeth Anne Grene, for her excellence in the skill of archery, was awarded with a Golden Pheon.

Lady Melangell Dwn and Lord Joshua Dennesson, for their steadfast service to Crown, Barony, and Kingdom, were made Companions of the Stag’s Heart.

Lady Illaria Joye was made a Companion of the order of the Silver Stirrup, for her excellent knowledge and skills in the Equestrian Arts.

Don Septimus Marius Belisarius, for his Gallantry and skill upon the Rapier field, was made a White Scarf of the Outlands. And thus the Court of Their Majesties, as well as that of Their Excellencies of Fontaine was closed, and all were invited to attend the feast afterwards.

On a personal note…I have two memories of this event which I will take with me. Well, perhaps more than two, but only two that I’m going to talk about here. The first is of a certain young lady who received an award from Their Majesties. As she walked back to her seat, looking at the beautiful scroll in her hands she stopped and turned back to the Crown, and asked if the scribe that had created her scroll was in attendance. And on finding that Mistress Monika was in fact present, the Young Lady strode to her and bent down and gave her a very real, very sincere hug. It was not a thing of the mind. It was not a thing of words. It was a thing of the heart, and it was nice to see.

In the same vein, there was a young man at this event who received an award from Their Majesties. After receiving the award he returned to his seat in the front row and while most of the populace lost sight of him at this time, I could see him. I saw him, as Court continued, sitting there holding that scroll in his lap, looking at it. Looking at it in a kind of wondering and amazed disbelief. The words and business of the continuing Court rolled over him, and he paid them no mind. He was caught in the glow of the words on the scroll, the glow of the words that were spoken to him by the Crown of the Outlands. I strongly suspect that when this young man is old and gray, when his strength has gone from him, and his eyes dim, the glow of the moment, that event, that scroll will still be there.

Scrolls, you see, can be a kind of magic.

And so I would like to take just a moment and talk about Scribes. You don’t generally see scribes. Oh, in many cases they’re out there, sitting quietly somewhere in the crowd, but it’s not like they wear big “I’m a Scribe” signs or some kind of special Scribal hat (not sure what that would even look like). These are the people that make the fantastic works of art that people are given when they get awards. While it’s always nice to get an award, it’s easy to sometimes forget that that scroll is the painstaking work of someone who has spent years, perhaps decades, learning their art and then spending hours sitting at a table using all that accumulated knowledge and skill to create a work of art that is for you, and you alone.

You have to admit…one of the really cool things about the Kingdom of the Outlands are the scrolls, each one hand-made. This is not the case in all other Kingdoms.

Our Scribes are, I believe, extremely thoughtful when it comes to the poor, forgetful, sleep-deprived Court Herald reading the scroll. As a Court Herald, and someone that has been a Court Herald many times for many Crowns, I can tell you from personal experience how nice it is to get a scroll delivered at an event with all the pertinent scroll text on the back, ready to be read, with the proper dates and names already added. Trust me when I say that teeny-tiny Mongolian words written in a really cool yet completely mysterious and strangely written font are sometimes hard to decipher on the fly. Don’t even get me started on Welsh. You may also not believe it when I say that it is possible to completely forget the date when reading a scroll…or even, in the moment, draw a sudden and embarrassing blank on the names of the King and/or Queen sitting or standing two feet away from you. But I have that super-power. Sure. We’ll call it a super-power because “super-power” sounds better than “air-head”.

Anyway, I am thankful for the Scribes of the Outlands

Greeting unto the Glorious Outlands! Please pray attend the Court report for Dragonspine Candlemas.


Dragonsspine Candlemas was a wonderful time. Thank you to the Event Stewards, their staff, and the wonderful gentles who joined us for this great event.


Sir Rowland de Grey of Lincolnshire was a fantastic herald for the weekend. We began morning court with well wishes and great anticipation of the day. Countess Richenda de la Selva made an announcement about Kingdom A&S and was thanked by His Majesty for her largess gift of felted balls (great gifts for Our younger members). Many laughs were had by all and court was recessed to enjoy the day. Throughout the day we enjoyed good company and loved watching the Tournaments. We even had some doe and stag support that hung out across the road for most of the day.The evening was full of joy and much deserved praise. Master Hawk Rill Hunnybun showed exceptional honor, chivalry, and prowess during Crown Tournament therefore We made him Our Shield of Chivalry. Rose of Castle Rising was called before Us. She is a great youth of Our Kingdom who helps in many ways and We bestowed upon her a Promise of the Outlands. A fine autocrat and wonderful Officer who has helped his Barony grow we created Antoine Francesco as a companion of the Stag’s Heart. Sir Lothar vom Bergenwald was summoned from his duties in the Kitchen where he had spent most of the day. As Sir Lothar’s service to this Kingdom has been long, steadfast, and varied We found him worthy to join his peers of the Order of the Pelican. We asked for his answer right then and made him a Pelican on the spot. Court was handed over to Their Excellencies and we heard many good things about members of the Barony of Dragosspine. A most befuddled Silent Herald was called into Baronial court but before Their Excellencies could begin We jumped in and awarded Niall Keating his AoA as he is a great asset to Our society and Our Kingdom. When court was handed back to Us we told His Excellency Don Gianni de San Germano we had further words for him and asked he come before us. Many words did we speak of Don Gianni’s skill, grace, honor, courtesy, and more. The Order of Defense was called to join him as he was offered admittance into their Order. His wonderful wife most gracefully raced to his side as fast as any I have seen. We asked Don Gianni to take Council of his peers and sit vigil giving us his answer at a later date. Another fine young gentle was called, Buggius dei Medici, for his great zeal, prowess, and dedication to The Rapier field he was awarded the Brendan Swatko for youth martial achievement. We look forward to watching Buggius on the field for many years to come. The time had arrived for His Majesties inspiring war speech. With Lightning and Thunderhead in hand the spirit of Jaxarticus spread across the room. All were called forth to WAR and all were inspired to take up arms, bow, needle, or quill to represent and support the Outlands this coming Estrella. With the weapons of Our Kingdom still in hand His Majesty sternly called for the Kingdom Seneschal THL Zafirah al-`Aliyyah. His Majesties words spoke of Her Ladyships long service to this Kingdom and how even when confronted with difficulties she has stayed true to the ideals of the SCA. The order of the Pelican was asked to join her as We offered her admittance into their Order. We asked she sit vigil and give us her answer at a future date. Thus ended evening court.


Feast was fantastic. The cheese was incredible. Really I could have just ate cheese. But there was so much more! The Event Steward gave some closing announcements and we tanked them, their staff, and the cooks for a wonderful day and scrumptious feast.


WAR practice was a great success and well attended on both fields. We had a few pieces of unfinished business We were able to take care of that afternoon. Utrid was called forward and Awarded Arms, he is a great gentle to have in the SCA and our Kingdom. Lady Adelaisa Bernois was given a Stag for her continued service. We know Her Ladyship will continue to shine in Our lands. Ciaran MacMartin was called forward and tales were told of his prowess and dedication and he was created a Stag’s Blood of the Outlands. Such were the court happenings of the weekend.


We had such a wonderful time in Dragonsspine and We look forward to Estrella!!!


HRM Anna

Greetings, good Gentles! I bring you tidings of the business of the Crown of the Outlands, as conducted during the evening Court held in Their Majesties’ Barony of the Citadel of the Southern Pass on the 6th day of January, A.S. 52, being 2018 in the mundane reckoning of years.

The beginning of the Court saw the Knighting of THL Patroclus who, at the beginning of the ceremony, was drawn into Their Majesties’ Court in a full-sized Chariot. Sir Titus, Sir Decimus, and Sir Stavros all spoke to the Roman virtues evidenced by The Honorable Lord Patroclus. After other worthy reports were given and oaths were sworn, His Majesty saw fit to dub Sir Patroclus a Knight of the Society.It is fitting and proper that those Gentles who have discovered the Dream we share be recognized. Caledonus and Juliana of Citadel, as well as Sarah of Citadel, and Angelina Luludi Sabine, also of the Citadel of the Southern Pass, were recognized in this way, and received an Award of Arms from Their Majesties.For their excellent and continuing service to the Kingdom of the Outlands, Lady Rita Die Perle Von Der Wetterau and Lady Idunn Hallsdottir were admitted into the Order of the Stag’s Heart.Gungir of St. Golias had business in Their Majesties’ Court, and presented to the Crown a certain Royal Banner which had in the dim mists of antiquity been left upon the battle fields of Pensic War. He told the story of the many and varied adventures of the banner as it traveled about the Known World, until at last it had come to be in his possession. And so he presented the banner to Their Majesties so that it could once again take its proper place.Julien de la Fontaine received a most excellent scroll which commemorated his position as the Protector of the Queen’s Heart. Their Majesties also saw fit during Court to admit him into the Order of the White Scarf of the Outlands.As Their last order of business, Their Majesties saw fit to recognize the artistic endeavors and talents of His Excellency Tariq ibn Yusef ibn Askari al-Ghassani and Her Excellency Elieth de Salazar, Baron and Baroness of the Citadel of the Southern Pass, by admitting them into the Order of the Flower.On a personal note…. The day was filled with a very well-attended War Practice, for both heavy and light fighters and it was a hoot! After the melees the martial activities continued as pleasantly large number of unbelted fighters challenged the Chivalry on the Field in single combat. I personally has a really nice time, and I know for a fact I wasn’t the only one. 


The Stag Choir performed before the beginning of Court and they did an awesome job! Their hard work and talent are apparent, and I thoroughly enjoyed their performance.Their Excellencies of the Citadel of the Southern Pass are good and noble shepherds of their people, and are to be commended. It was a lovely event.

Thomas Winterbourne, 
Blue Iris Herald to Her Majesty Anna, Queen of the Outlands.

Greeting Outlanders!

We hope this missive finds you well and in good spirits!  Sadly our carrier pigeon with the tales of Caer Galen Midwinter got a little lost.  The scared little pigeon was finally found and we now bring you the events of that great day.

The morning was beautiful and the temperatures moderate.  HE Randall Carrick was gracious to help us by Heralding our opening court.

Members of the Praetorian Regina (Queen’s Guard) Maestra Tatiana Bonnioulx,  Lord Svein Hammar,  Lady Viola de Luca, and Lord Servi di Villano were in attendance and came forward to be invested.Likewise the Comite (Attendants)  Mirza Jibra'il and Hrafna Ylvawere were called to receive their favors and be invested.

The Children present were called forward and were offered an item out of the treasure chest however Our treasure chest was in need of replacement.  Lord Svein Hammar generously gifted a handmade treasure chest full of coins of chocolate for Us to share across the land.

Our court was recessed and a day full of good council was had.

That evening Sir Rowland de Grey of Lincolnshire was kind to be Our Herald.  We Invested Baroness Morgan Cheyney as a Comite (Attendant) as her worthy steed had been not so worthy that morning.

Seraphina Pania was called before the court and the many things she does for her Barony and Kingdom made known to the Populace.  She was Awarded Arms and charged to continue her good works and joy in the SCA.     

As the newly elected Harp of Caer Galen Rowena Colebrook needed little introduction as her service was already apparent to the crowd assembled.  She was awarded a Stag's Heart for all of her great works.

The Centurio Sagitarii Regius (Archery Guard) was called up to be invested. The Captain of the Archery Guard and Outlands Royal Archer, THLord Konrad Von Alpirsbach as well as Sir Ramon the Chronologer (Kronos), THLord Angus Montgomery the Forrester, and THLady Lêofsige Õ Caoimh (Lyssa) were present to be given their hoods.

It was announced that THLord Gauvain Eisenbein Is the new Rapier General of the Outlands and his Southern Commander will be Lord Septimus Marius Belisarius.

Their Excellencies of Caer Galen do much for the Kingdom and The Society.  His service we have seen across the known world and her arts and support of the Arts and Sciences is immeasurable.  Both of these good gentles go above and beyond what is expected of them and we sought to reward those works.   HE Finn Ua Briain was awarded a Stag's Heart and HE Cinara Ybarra received an Argent Hart.          

On Sunday we caught up with THLord Kaios Alexandrou. His protection on the field of Her Royal Highness at Great Western War was beyond impressive.  His passion for fighting and presence on the field was proof he is a Stag's Blood of the Outlands.  Sir Rowland was Our herald for this as well.

Thank you Outlanders! You inspire Us,

HRM Anna

Greetings, Good Gentles!

Heed the words of Her Majesty’s herald. The following constitutes my best recollection of the high points of al-Barran Midwinter and War Practice. I apologize for misspelled names (I’m sure there will be some) and please know that anything that is left out or incorrect is solely the fault of the herald, and none of Her Majesty of the Outlands.

The site of the Midwinter Event was the Menaul School, in al-Barran. It was a pleasant site, and activities took place in three separate buildings. The day was clear, albeit cold, and there was ample room and places for people to take their comfort and enjoy the activities of the day, whether it be music in the feast hall, or the silent auction, or classes, or the merchants present. Their Majesties met with the various orders of Peerage or other worthy groups they saw fit to consult, and both a hearty lunch and a delicious feast were served over the course of the event.

All members of the Kingdom, who wished to swear Fealty and had not yet done so, were given the opportunity during the Royal Court on Saturday.

Of note, during the day and the early evening Lady Rhiannon (MKA Rachel Rodgers) set up a photographic booth and took professional quality photos of people for 10 dollars a shot, half of which was donated to the Kingdom Travel Fund. All in all, I believe over 300 dollars was raised during the course of the day.

Also of note, it was announced that the White Stag Herald will be stepping down. All members of the populace who are interested in this position should send a letter to Their Majesties, the Kingdom Seneschal, and the current White Stag Herald.

Their Majesties held Court in the morning and evening of Saturday, and on the morning of Sunday in which they conducted business for the benefit of the Outlands. It should be noted that Cinéad Mac Amhlaoibh, Mistress Lydia of the Pines, Lady Alexandria Vitalis, Lady Violet Bertran, and Lord Ragnar Starki all offered their service and were accepted into the Royal Retinue of Their Majesties.

On Sunday morning Their Majesties saw fit to recognize Thorgrim of Drygestan with an Award of Arms.

Mistress Brigitta Olavsdatter and Sir Gottfried von Zollern were both offered admittance into the Legion of Gallantry, on Saturday night and Sunday morning respectively.

Their Majesties saw fit to recognize great prowess, and THL Gere Thorkelsson, Warlord of the Outlands, was made a Thegn of the Iron Hart in Saturday evening’s Court.

HG Berengaria de Chinon presented her Majesty with a Tabard from ancient days, to be worn on the fields of Estrella. Before Her Grace left Her Majesty’s presence the Crown saw fit to admit her into the Order of the Stag’s Heart for her excellent service.

Mistress Monika von Zell has been serving her Kingdom for a long time, and Saturday evening Their Majesties recognized this by making Mistress Monika von Zell a Stag of the Outlands. Her Majesty made note that Mistress Monika never received this most assuredly deserved recognition for the simple fact that she was made a Pelican before the Order of the Stag of the Outlands had been created.

On Saturday evening Mistress Catriona nic Aoidh was offered admittance into the Order of the Laurel, and she will give Their Majesties her answer at a later time.

On Sunday morning THL Adrien de Calais was offered admittance into the Order of Chivalry, and she will give Their Majesties her answer at a later time.

Their Majesties, in Their Wisdom, admitted Sir Dennis the Wright into the Right Noble Order of the Pelican at the end of Court Saturday evening. Sir Dennis was not aware that this would be taking place.

On a personal note…. I have a terrible memory, and much of an event tends to blur in my mind afterwards. Sometime, though, I take some things with me, like snapshots that I know I will keep in my heart. I have some from this event. I remember a beautiful Lady (Her Excellency Danielle de la Rochelle) bending into her harp. I remember the grace of her hands as they moved along the strings, and the pure sound of it. I remember the pure sound of her voice and the beauty of the song he sang. It was a lovely moment, and it makes me smile even now as I type these words.

In my mind there is a picture of the Baron of al-Barran. No, nothing so crass and modern as a picture. In my mind there is a painting of a man. He faces away from me, towards a crowd of people. His back is straight, and his feet are spread apart. Over his head he raises a blade of shining steel, and in a ringing voice he answers his King’s call to War.

And lastly, I remember the sight of a strong and worthy man weeping as he knelt before his King and Queen, overcome with true emotion as he was, once again and rightfully, recognized as a Peer of the Outlands.

It was a lovely event.

Greetings, good Gentles!

Last week, in the Barony of al-Barran two events were held. On Saturday, November 18th, Baronial A&S took place at Sandia Preparatory School, located in al-Barran Proper. The following day the annual Toys for Tots tournament was held in the park by the Boys and Girls Club of Albuquerque.

Although His Majesty Jaxaricus was travelling in foreign lands, and could not attend the events of the weekend, Her Majesty of the Outlands was able and pleased to attend.

During the course of the Arts and Siences event, Her Majesty was pleased to give an award of Arms to Lord Keleman and Lady Hette, of al-Barran. The next day, at Toys for Tots, Lord Albinus and Lord Rados also recieved and Award of Arms from Her Majesty. Also, Lady Lucrezia de Carducci was awarded the Silver Tyne of the Outlands for her excellence on the Rapier field.

Both events were well-attended and most enjoyable. I personally enjoyed playing chess and singing in the two classes I attended during al-barran A&S, and I thoroughly enjoyed looking at some of the artistic endeavors of the populace of al-Barran. One Gentle set up drums outside and played them most of the day, which I thought was very nice.

The weather the next day was close to perfect. The middle of November is always a bit of a dice roll in al-Barran, and it was a good one this year. Cool and crisp without being cold, with sunlight and calm winds. The Toys for Tots Heavy Tournament was most enjoyable to watch, with Count Hrorek being victorius in the final round against Sir Decimus. There was a Rapier Tournament as well, which was won by Lord Julien de la Fontaine, the Protector of the Queen's Heart!

Special thanks to Sir Rowland, who kindly agreed to read scroll text during Court. It seems I set my reading glasses down on the ground while I was fighting and could not locate them afterwards. In retrospect...it would have been surprising if I HAD found them. (Note to self....do not leave glasses on the ground....2nd note to self...have extra reading glasses in the Herald's bag...)

In Service,

Thomas Winterbourne, Blue Iris

Greetings, most noble Gentles of the Outlands!

I beg your indulgence for a moment, and I ask that you heed my words. In truth, these are the Words and Will of your Queen, but any mistake in writing or meaning is mine alone, and I humbly apologize for any mistakes I make in conventions or spelling in this missive. (I’m sure there will be some…there always are.) I would give you good reports of the Outlands Coronation, held the weekend of November 11th, 2017, at which time His Majesty Count Sir Darius of Jaxartes ascended to the Stag Throne. By Right of Arms, and Grace, and Favor he then crowned his Lady, Mistress Anna MacTaggart, as the Queen of these lands. Let no man question the sovereignty of the Stag and Doe of the Outlands. Let no man put aside the rightful duty which is owed the Crown.

Their Majesties called into Their Court certain Gentles of good report to act as Their retinue. Following is a listing of those Gentles.

Sir Thomas Winterbourne was invested by her Majesty to be her Blue Iris Herald.

Count Sir Hrorek Wolfson was named as the Champion of the King.

Duke Sir Cyrred of Ashwood was named as the Champion of Her Majesty, the Queen.

The Warlord of this great land, won by right of arms, was named as Lord Gere Thorkelson.

Mistress Elizabeth Green was named as the Reginae Crimen Comite, or Head Attendant of Their Majesties, was given charge of those Comite, those Noble Gentles who have asked to serve as attendants to the Crown. These included Baroness Diana of Llanberris, Lady Olivia Solis de Lujan, Lord Hardwin Godricksson, and Lady Elianora Cuncliffe.

His Majesty called before Sir Michael McBain, Sir Athanaric Redeye, and The Honorable Lord Thorgim af Kobmannehavn to serve on the Praetorian Rex, the King’s Guard.

Her Majesty called Lady Bellatumara filia Disideri to be the Praefectus Pratorio Regina, the Captain of the Queen’s Guard, and Lady Bella was given authority over those who had sworn to be on the Queen’s Guard, namely THL Timur ibn Juanaid, Lady Fedelm Arilith, and Lord Maximilian Kern.

Her Majesty also called forward certain archers of good report, namely Master Duncan Alastair MacRae, THL Daniel Lark del Glen, and Sir Rand the Tracker to be members of the Centurio Sagitarii Regius, or the Archery Guard.

Certain Gentles, by dint of prowess or Courtly behavior (or perhaps a little of both) we recognized by their Majesties. Don Antoine was created as the Rapier of Chivalry. Sir Michael McBain, by right of arms, was made the Bearer of the Favor of the Queen. Lord Julian de la Fontaine, by right of arms, was made the Protector of the Queen’s Heart. Lord Galen MacIntyre was named as the Flower of Chivalry.

Their Majesties saw fit to recognize His Excellency Leif Davidson as a Count of the Society for Creative Anachronism, for his service upon the Stag Throne. The Same honor was given to Her Excellency Ansteys Darcy, who for her service upon the Throne of the Outlands was recognized as a Countess of the Society for Creative Anachronisms. Countess Ansteys was also created as a Lady of the Rose of the Outlands.

Over the Course of the weekend, Their Majesties conducted other business for the good of Their Kingdom. They met with representatives from our neighbors to the west, the great Kingdom of Atenveldt, who brought gifts and salutations from The Aten Crown. Master martin de Gras and Dame Fiona Sutherland were well-spoken and courteous, and represented well their Kingdom. It’s almost a shame His Majesty will be forced to crush Atenveldt at the Great Esrtella War that he AND A ROMPING, ROARING, SINGING, DRUMMING, ARMY OF OUTLANDERS will attend in February of 2018. Still, gentle Outlanders, the Crown has commanded that we are victorious in the coming War….and our duty is clear before us.

Lady A’isha, an emissary from the Kahn of the Great Dark Horde, had words for Their Majesties. She brought bread and salt from her Khan, to break with the King of the Outlands who, through bold words and actions, attained the word of the emissary that the Great Dark Horde would fight alongside the Outlands at Estrella War. Behold the diplomacy of the Crown of the Outlands.

Their Majesties were most pleased by a gift of the fruits of House Agir, comprised of many boxes of homemade beers, ales, meads, and other libations. No, really…it was quite impressive.

On Sunday morning, after the Chivalry sat in circle with Their Majesties, THL Patrick the Early was offered admittance into the Order of Chivalry. He will give his answer at Citadel’s 12th Night Celebration.

Results were read from the fundraiser conducted by the Ladies of the Rose on behalf of Countess Slaine. Over the course of the online auction, over 18,000 dollars was raised!! Praise to those who gave of their time and effort to provide for the auction. Praise for those who were generous with their purses in a good cause.

And lastly, Their Majesties amended the Law of the Outlands, as follows…

Kingdom Law Change -- Section VIII, 2, h.

  1. Monitor the office of the Scribe, who shall:
  2. Maintain a listing and monitor the activities of the College of Scribes;
  3. Ensure the accuracy of scroll format and text;
  4. Update the Scribe’s Handbook as needed;
  5. At the conclusion of each reign report the names of scribes who have created scrolls for the Kingdom during that reign;
  6. Publish once per reign a notification stating that all special or non-standard scroll texts must be approved by the Kingdom Scribe's Office;
Added:

  1. The Kingdom Scribe shall keep a list of all awards to assist the Crown with the completion of their award listing for their reign within the 60 day time limit to publish the listing. This will help to ensure awards are not given twice as the list is used to update the award listing on the Outlands Heralds website.
And these, to the best of my (spotty) recollection and (dubious) notes, are the high points of weekend of Coronation.

In Service,

Thomas Winterbourne, Blue Iris herald

To our newest voice Herald I bid welcome, and well met.

Queen’s Prize report from Lady Isabel la Biche d’Hiver, Messenger:

Queen's Prize evening Court: Katherine le Fayre Atte Water was given the Queen's Grace. The overall winner of the event was Lady Elizabeth Argentieri for her glass work and also the Populace choice.

Master Balthazar Knopf's Laurel backscroll was displayed and entrusted to a representative to courier to him.
Caer Galen Toys for Tots Event, October 16 A.S. 52

Good King Lief attended the Toys for Tots event co-hosted by his baronies of Caer Galen and Caerthe. These generous baronies gathered almost 200 toys! There were a number of archers, four horses and their riders, three rapier fighters and no heavy weapons fighters (proving that Stag’s Emprise was successful in exhausting them).

With a fantastic soundtrack from the neighboring fiesta, His Majesty bestowed the following awards:
Lady Elizabeth Argentieri – Argent Hart
Baron Stephan Sorensen – Doe and Mountain

Then His Majesty allowed this humble herald a moment in court, wherein I asked him permission to retire early. I have arranged to go on pilgrimage to the gravesite of Queen Bertrada of Laon (known as Bertha Proudfoot) at the Basilique de Saint Denis, and I must leave before the winter storms make the crossing too dangerous. In his benevolence, His Majesty allowed me to turn in my tabard and baton. (I will still arrange heralds and reports until the end of Their Majesties’ reign). It has been my great honor to hold the position as Her Majesty’s Herald.

Fondly written,
Matilda Seton
Formerly known as Blue Iris Herald

The Warlord of the Outlands Tournament at Stag’s Emprise, October 14 A.S. 52

The tournament was in the style of Sir Michael McBain’s Artus Cominus. There were eighteen fighters, thirteen rounds each with a different weapon style, single fight.

With mine own eyes I saw acts of chivalry. In one fight, one opponent had a dagger and the other had a great sword. The wielder of the great sword chose to only use one arm in order to make the fight a little more fair.

There were also amazing skills shown. We all watched as Lord Gere started to lose his balance and fall backward while retreating (the floor had gotten dusty and a little slippery), only to regain his feet and immediately strike out at his opponent, vanquishing him.

Lord Khal Gan was voted “best dressed” by some of the ladies of the gallery. His new Mongol kit is amazing.

At the end of the thirteen rounds, there were three warriors who each had eight wins. Sir Wilhelm Gelbart (known also as Galbrearth), Lord Gere Thorkelsson, and Lord Ronan f-Fiacal mac Conaill (who is also currently the Windhover Bard) all stood tall It was the King’s will that they fight round robin, best two-out-of-three with great axe.

Sir Galbrearth and Lord Gere fought. Sir Galbrearth won.
Sir Galbrearth and Lord Ronan fought. Lord Ronan won.
Lord Ronan and Lord Gere fought. Lord Gere won.

His Majesty, in consultation with Her Royal Highness, declared that the round should be fought again, round robin, best two of three.

Sir Galbrearth and Lord Gere fought. Sir Galbrearth won.
Sir Galbrearth and Lord Ronan fought. Lord Ronan won.
Lord Ronan and Lord Gere fought. Lord Gere won.

Our good King and wise Crown Princess then decided that a Meanest Mother (every one fights everyone all at once) was the best course. These stalwart fighters once again took the field. Sir Galbrearth was dispatched first, leaving Lord Gere and Lord Ronan standing. After a flurry of axe blows, Lord Ronan fell. Lord Gere was victorious!

In court, Master Bela Kierzon (the Kurgan) returned the Thunderhead to the King, saying he had long wanted to be the Warlord. By carrying this Axe he could honor the first Prince of the Outlands, who was his Master.  Master Bela was released as Warlord to much acclaim.

With pride and wonderment in his eyes, he knelt before the King in court to accept the Prince’s Axe, Thunderhead. His Majesty called for an oath from him. He swore to be a good Warlord, to try to be as inspiring as Sir Jaxx was when he held the Axe, and to wake everyone up at Estrella so the Outlands can be first to the battlefield.

Dutifully relayed,
