CONGRATULATIONS to our own Lord Gallian (aka Crow ) ( Jack) , who placed second in the Rapier Championship Tourney at celebration of the anniversary for our most noble cousins in the Barony of Naevejhem. Our Barony was also well-represented by Her Excellency Roisin, who also fought most valiantly in the Rapier Tourney!


CONGRATULATIONS to our own THL Ragnailt inghean Mhaoil Sheachlainn ( say that one three times fast!) (Dena) who was graciously granted the Order of the Dragon's Wing (The service award for the Barony of Naevehjem) for her assistance with their Baronial Chatelaine.

Our Barony is blessed to have so many among our number who are willing to serve- a very special thank you to all who have recently stepped up to take an office, or to serve as Deputies! We have a remaining need for a Deputy Seneschal to serve as Lord Felipe's successor. If you are interested, or would like more information about what the position entails, please contact Lord Phillip, or our current Deputy Seneschal, Dame Khalida.


The Barony of Dun Or is in the process of establishing it’s very own Library!

If you have books or other resources, that you wish to retain as your own personal property, but would be willing to lend out to other baronial members, please see Lady Eva know, so that we can include those items in our library’s list of rentals available.
