News from the east! At this year's Baronial Investiture Anniversary feast, Lady Inez was honoured in court for her construction and donation to the Barony of a fighter's coif in the Ruantallan colours and with the new populace badge on it. As well as being entered into the A&S competition at the feast, it now forms an official part of the Heavy Champion of Ruantallan regalia! And for its first recipient, the Baron bestowed it upon the new champion, Gaston, with the amused comment, "This is from your mum."


Also, two other Stronghold members were recognized at court: Ulrich von Spandau, our Exchequer, local bowyer, and host of archery practises and our annual camping event, was awarded "Best Newcomer" by the Baron and Baroness! Sounds like they've been trying to catch him at an event since last Thirteenth Night.

And both Ulrich and Freydis Egilsdottir were awarded their Awards of Arms by Their Majesties, Tsar Ivan and Tsaritsa Matilde, King and Queen of the East! So they are now known as Lord Ulrich von Spandau and Lady Freydis Egilsdottir!

Vivaunt! Vivaunt! Vivaunt!
