Being a Consort

Have you ever been asked to be the
consort of a fighter and then thought to yourself “What do I do as
a consort?”

Now is your chance to ask that and other questions of the

From Mary McKenzie

Just a reminder of our contest!
Announcement to all Scribes of An Tir…
An informal charter painting contest will be held at July
Coronation this year!
As encouragement to all our scribes to paint more Kingdom Charters,
so that their Majesties may have as many as they may need (as their
reign is quickly drawing to a close) to give out to those well
deserving of our populace. Scribes of all skill levels are welcomed
and encouraged to participate. Four certificates of award will be
given, one winner each in a category of beginner, intermediate, and
advanced, and one Crown favorite.
**We are encouraging those entering to bring charters already
completed, as space and supplies to paint will be limited


“Full site cries will go out on a schedule set by the
herald in charge. If you have business for a cry, you must see the
herald in charge at Herald’s Point 30 minutes prior to a scheduled
cry going out.”
