Because the K&Q Rapier event site seems to be down again...

King’s & Queen’s Rapier Champions & Autumn Afternoons

Greetings all! – Upon this coming 18th of October, the people of the Canton of Black Icorndall in the Barony of Bhakail invite you to join Their Majesties Edward III and Thyra II at a grand tourney highlighting the skills of the East in the arts of defense. Their Champions, Don Donovan Shinnock and Don Thomas of Effingham, will oversee the tourney as Their Majesties attend to the selection of the next King’s and Queen’s Rapier Champions. Entrants to the Tourney must be registered by 10:30am, Tourney will begin at 11am.

Site Address: Stage One, 101 Plush Mill Road, Media, PA 19063 (Directions below)

_OGR meeting_
Immediately following the Tourney, Their Majesties will be holding an OGR meeting. It should be noted for the purposes of this meeting that the site is discreetly wet.

_Discussion Salon: Rapier Spears_
Following the OGR meeting will be a discussion salon regarding rapier spears. A discussion salon is an OP-free gathering wherein the participants discuss in an open-minded manner the meta-game aspects of playing in the SCA. This salon will be actively moderated by Countess Marguerite and discussion guidelines will be announced at the beginning of the salon. Please bring yourselves and your open minds. Leave your tin hats at the door. A cadet has as much right to be heard and their opinions considered as an OGR or a King in the discussion at hand.

The SCA Board of Directors has added rules for Rapier Spears to the Society Rapier Marshals Handbook. What specific concerns do you have for the rules as written? What specific concerns do you have about the inclusion of Rapier Spears under these rules in single combat? In Melee combat? What ways can we go about proving that our concerns are valid? Can our fears or concerns be addressed or disproved? How may Rapier Spears change our game at Pennsic or foreign wars? How may it change our game inside the borders of the East Kingdom?

_Autumn Afternoons_
A series of entertainments and diversions will take place throughout the day for those gentles who otherwise might find themselves sad to be missing the bardic festivities of Winter Nights — our own Autumn Afternoons, organised by Baroness Sabine de Kerbriant! All are invited to participate in or observe:

Possibly 3:30pm – 4pm, depending on Her Majesty’s schedule – Dancing with Queen Thyra, music provided by members of Bhakaili Branslers and friends.

_A&S Activities_
There will be tables with medieval games and displays of projects in our Arts and Sciences Solar. We will also be offering a series of hands-on activities with projects that you can take home at the end of the day, including –
* Viking Wire Weaving
* Viking Treasure Necklace
* Beginning Embroidery

In addition to these pieces of business, members of Athena’s Thimble presented a gift to Their Majesties, and a representative from the Kingdom or Drachenwald presented a gift to Their Majesties as well.

Her Majesty called the Captain of her Guard, Einarr Njortharson, called Billy Fish, forward. She named him a Queen’s Cypher, and he was presented a scroll by Eleanor Catlyng with words by Alys Mackyntoich.

Her Majesty’s guard were released from their service, and Their Imperial Majesties bade the Kingdom farewell. Thus did they pass their crowns to their Heirs, Edward and þóra. Long Live the King! Long Live the Queen! Long live the Kingdom of the East!

In service,

Malcolm Bowman
Eastern Crown Herald for Brennan and Caoilfhionn

Posted on behalf of Ryan Mac Whyte, Brigantia Principal Herald of the Kingdom of the East.

Unto the Kingdom of the East does Ryan Brigantia send greetings,

I wanted to announce some upcoming changes in the structure of the Heraldic Office. As of this writing there will be three additional regional deputies in the Brigantia office. Baroness Theodora Bryennissa has become the Southern Region Deptuty Herald. Don Donovan Shinnock has become the Central Region Deputy Herald. Lord Conall an Doire has become the Northern Region Deputy Herald. They join the Regional Herald of Tir Mara, the Badger Herald. These deputies will soon have email addresses on the Eastkingdom.org/heraldry website. 

The Regional heralds will be responsible for maintaining the roster of all group heralds, and ensuring that those group heralds have valid memberships. They will also act as a front line resource for local heralds who have difficulties in their offices. Furthermore the Regional heralds will assist the Elmet Herald in organizing Heraldic Scholas [or Scholae] in their area, assist the Troubadour Herald when Crown Tournament and K&Q events are held in their region, assist the Eastern Crown Herald when the Royal Progress comes to their region, and assist the Brigantia Herald with special projects which affect their region and the Kingdom as a Whole. Local group Pursuivants should begin to copy their quarterly reports to their regional heralds as well as to Brigantia. 

The Blue Tyger Herald and I are researching a way to avoid the costly monetary transfer fees involved in heraldic submissions from the Crown Principality of Tir Mara. We are very sympathetic to the problems involved in sending cheques or money orders in US Dollars from Canada. We are exploring an option to have Tir Maran submission fees gathered and deposited by a deputy in Tir Mara. I will have more to announce on this initiative as the structure is put in place. Meanwhile, please note that, in order to limit mailing costs, Blue Tyger will accept submissions paperwork from Tir Mara by e-mail.

Once the problems with the website migration are resolved an entirely new design of the Eastkingdom.org/heraldry website will be up with new links to all the resources a herald could ever need and even a link to the newly updated Eastern Heraldic Handbook! I thank Lord Lorenz, EK Webmaster and former Heraldic Website Deputy, and Baron Mael Eoin for their hard work in this transition. 

Finally I would like to thank Lord Conogan for his service as the Badger Herald for his service over the last year. He has been an exemplary deputy and has chosen to step back from the position in order to focus on local issues. I wish him the best in whatever service he next chooses to perform. 

At this time the following jobs are open in the Herald’s office:
- The Badger Herald (Regional Deputy of Tir Mara); this Deputy is responsible for the same duties as outlined for the other three regional heralds as listed above.
- The Deputy formerly known as Hyrondelle Herald (French language Deputy); this Deputy is responsible for working with Francophone submitters and assisting with French language translations in Royal Courts.

Any interested in these positions should email me at Brigantia@eastkingdom.org

-In service to Crown, Kingdom, and College,
Ryan Mac Whyte, Brigantia Principal Herald of the Kingdom of the East.

Item: Their Majesties summoned the Captain-General of Archers, Master Godric, to address the Court concerning great deeds upon the archery range; whereupon Otto Gottlieb was created a Master Bowman and Eleanora Stewart was created a Grand Master Bowman, the said Eleanora’s achievement being memorialized in an engraved arrow with a hand-forged head created by Kenric aet Essex;

Item: Their Majesties summoned before the Tyger Throne the noble and right honored Ygraine of Kellswood, the which lady being renowned for her labors on behalf of the archers of the realm and many and diverse other good deeds, and acknowledging her great virtue and noblesse, did create her a Tyger of the East, the which deed was memorialized and confirmed in a document authored by Alys Mackyntoich and calligraphed and illuminated by Eva Woderose.

Item: His Majesty made a gift to Her Majesty of a song composed by Martyn de Halliwell recognizing the nobility of flamingoes and hedgehogs and Her Majesty’s great favor for the same.
