AWARDS! AWARDS! AWARDS!! - A NOTE FROM OUR BARON AND BARONESS:

"A missive from their Excellencies Bjorn and Roisin, Baron and Baroness of Dun’ Or

Unto our populace do we send warm greetings and salutations.

As we approach the time of our Barony’s Anniversary, we would like to solicit recommendations for awards of both our Barony and those of the Kingdom. If you have seen someone go above and beyond in service; If someone has impressed you with their skill or improvement in all forms of combat; If someone’s art has inspired you, we would like to hear about it so that we can recognize their achievements.

If you are unsure of what awards someone has, our Herald can direct you to the website that shows the Caid Order of Precedence. If you do not know who a Kingdom level award recommendation should go to, we can accept the recommendation and we will make sure it gets forwarded to the correct person.

Rejoice, Anniversary is almost here!

Long Live Dun’ Or!!

LONG LIVE CAID!!

Bjorn, Baron of Dun’ Or

Roisin, Baroness of Dun’ Or"
