*2016-10-22 - Unofficial Report - K&Q Rapier*

Their Royal Majesties, Brion III and Anna III, ventured forth to Their Barony of Iron Bog on the 22nd of October, Anno Societatis fifty-one, there to watch the competition to determine the new King’s and Queen’s Rapier Champions.

After spending the day watching over 90 combatants compete for the honour of serving as Champion, Their Majesties opened Their Court. His Majesty invited before him the retiring King’s Rapier Champion, Master Donovan Shinnock, thanked him for a well-run tourney, and said that he would be sad to see him go. His Majesty took back the regalia of the office and Master Donovan stepped down.

His Majesty then called for Don Lupold Hass and asked if he would stand as King’s Rapier Champion. Don Lupold accepted and was fitted with the regalia of the office and presented a scroll naming him Champion, penned by Mistress Heather Rose de Gordoun. Don Lupold then took his place in Their Majesties’ Court.

Her Majesty asked for the attendance of the retiring Queen’s Rapier Champion, Don Llewellyn Walsh. She said that he had served with distinction and would always be a champion. Then she took from him the regalia of the office and Don Llewellyn stepped down.

Queen Anna then asked that Don Lottieri Malocchio come forward, which he did to much applause. Her Majesty stated that she’d be honoured to have him as Her Champion because “OMG, what fun!”. Don Malocchio was given the regalia of the Queen’s Rapier Champion and given a scroll commemorating this, made by Mistress Heather Rose de Gordoun.

The Ladies of the Rose were called forward. As is their tradition, they offered tokens to individuals who stood out to them. Duchess Etheldreda Ivelchyld offered her token to Lady Genevra d'Angouleme and Lady Pixie of Iron Bog. Countess Marguerite ingen Lachlainn gave her token to Don Melchior Kriebel. Duchess Avelina Keyes presented her token to Master Connor Levingstoune from Atlantia. And Duchess Caoilfhionn inghean Fhaolain’s token went to Lord Xavier the Sinister.

Queen Anna asked for Don Thomas of Effingham, who carried the Cloak of Perseverance for the last year. She accepted it from him, then called for Don Mark le Gabler and presented the Cloak to him, asking him to bear for the next year.

Their Majesties then called for Lord Eldrich Gaiman. They spoke of his swift reactions on the fencing list and his depth of knowledge of his opponents, and had Their herald read a scroll naming him a member of the Order of the Golden Rapier and Granting him Arms. The scroll was made by Mistress Heather Rose de Gordoun.

King Brion and Queen Anna then asked that the children of the East attend them. As has been Their habit for this reign, they offered the children toys, but first required that they learn something of the Society. Master Donovan Shinnock was called forward to explain the art of defense and distribute the largess.

Next, those new to the Society were called before the thrones. Their Majesties offered tokens that the newcomers might remember their first days among us.

The event steward, Lady Aibhilin inghean ui Phaidin, was summoned and thanked, along with the Barony of Iron Bog, for the wonderful event they had put together for Their Majesties.

Friar Jacob the Wanderer was called forward and Their Majesties spoke of his storytelling skills and his “Children’s Bedtime Story Hour” at Pennsic. For his skill in the performing arts, Friar Jacob was made a Companion of the Order of the Troubadours and given a small cup by the Crown, the regalia of the Order.

Captain Berrick Grayveson was called next to attend the Crown. Their Majesties spoke of his time serving as a rapier marshal and twice as Rapier Champion of the Barony of Bhakail, and his teaching of silk banner making, and made Berrick a Companion of the Order of the Silver Wheel. A scroll commemorating this was penned by Mistress Heather Rose de Gordoun.

Lord Connor MacSeamus O'Neal was summoned before the thrones. Their Majesties spoke of his artistry, his metalwork, and his skill making guards for rapier blades, and felt that these talents should be rewarded. They named him a Companion of the Order of the Maunche. A scroll will be forthcoming.

Their Majesties summoned Lord Ian Douglas. They spoke of his many years as a rapier combatant and marshal and his participation in the cut-and-thrust community, and felt this deserved recognition. They named him a member of the Order of the Silver Rapier and presented him a scroll with illumination by Lady Triona MacCaskey, calligraphy by Master Jonathan Blaecstan, and words by Mistress Dorigen of the Grey Gate.

Next, the Crown called for Lord Morwil MacShane. They recalled his time as Ladies’ Rapier Champion for Bhakail, his service as a rapier marshal, and his place as a alternate on the Pennsic Champions team, and felt all these things deserving. They named Lord Morwill a member of the Order of the Silver Rapier and gifted him a scroll saying such, created by Mistress Heather Rose de Gordoun.

Finally, King Brion and Queen Anna summoned Their Order of Defense. Their Majesties found when that Order gathered, however, that it was incomplete. Queen Anna turned to Her Rapier Champion, Don Lottieri Malocchio and though her herald delivered to him a Writ, to be answered at a later date, that he might respond to Their Majesties’ Summons whether he would take his place as a member of that Order. The words were written by Lady Liadan inghean Chineada.

Their Majesties then thanked all involved with putting on the event, and all attending the event and, there being no further business, processed from the hall.

These are the events of the day as I recall them. My thanks to all the retainers, guards, heralds, Champions, event staff, and attendees who made the day as joyful as it was.

Pray know I remain,
For Crown and College,

Master Rowen Cloteworthy

*Unofficial Court Report - First Court*

On the first of October, Anno Societatis 51, in the Barony of Bergental, there was a Coronation. By the hands of King Kenric III and Queen Avelina III, Duchess Anna Ophelia Halloway Tarragon was crowned Queen Anna III. There was a brief pause in the Coronation ceremony as Brion sang “My Queen” to Queen Anna, bringing her - and several among the attending staff and audience - to joyful tears. Queen Anna then crowned Duke Brion Anthony Uriel Tarragon as King Brion III. They took the fealty of Their Great Officers of State, and of House Runnymede, and of Their Champions, and the people of the East and swore fealty to all of them in return. Rightfully crowned, they then called for Duke Kenric aet Essex, Duchess Avelina Keyes, and Lady Aethelthryth Kenricing and gave them gifts in return for the time they served the Kingdom. They then installed the Queen’s Guard and the Lords and Ladies in Waiting to their stations, before retiring to sit in State. Some little while later, the first Court of Their Majesties Brion III and Anna III was opened.

Duchess Rowan de la Garnison, Ambassador from Their Majesties Marcus and Marguerite of the Kingdom of AEthelmearc, was called before the Crown. She presented the words of Their Sylvan Majesties, words of friendship and unity, and gifts of the produce of their lands, cloth of their colours, and jewels. Duchess Rowan was warmly thanked for the gifts and instructed to bring Their Oriental Majesties’ own words of friendship back with her.

Their Majesties then called for the children of the East. King Brion spoke to the children, saying that if they wanted a toy from the chest, they must pursue scholarly deeds. He called for his Champion of Horse, Baroness Lillian Stanhope, and sent the children to follow her and learn something of horsemanship before each could take a toy.

Her Majesty then called for Duke Brennan mac Fearghus and thanked him for being a stalwart companion during Her time as Princess. She gifted him a bottle from the royal cellars as thanks for his guidance and friendship.

Queen Anna then called for Duchess Aikaterine FitzWilliam who, though not present, was thanked for the splendid Coronation garb she created for the Crown.

King Brion asked for Duke Gryffith, who was also absent, but thanked him for organising the Coronation tourney Their Majesties had requested.

Their Majesties then asked those newcomers to the Society to approach the throne and gave them handcrafted beads as tokens that they should remember the day.

Next the event stewards, Mistress Jovonne d'Esprit and Mistress Eleanore MacCarthaigh, were called before the Crown. They were thanked for the wonderful day they had organised and gifted bunches of roses as a thank you.

Master Julian le Scot was summoned by Queen Anna, who spoke of the fun times they had shared, the deep respect and admiration she had for him, and how Master Julian was someone who she wanted to emulate. She gifted him with a white glove and named him a Companion of the Queen’s Order of Courtesy.

Their Majesties called for Jehannette Bouchart. They spoke of her work as a tourney herald, as kitchen staff, and as a retainer for the Crown. Wishing to reward such works, They Awarded her Arms and made her a Lady of the Court. To commemorate this, Lady Jehannette was given a scroll created by Duchess Thora Eiriksdottir.

Drake MacGregor was brought before the thrones and Their Majesties praised him as a workhorse, quietly getting things done and striving to better himself. In recognition of his accomplishments, They Awarded him Arms, making him a Lord of the Court. A scroll by Baroness Mari Clock van Hoorne was presented to Lord Drake so that he would remember the day.

The Crown then asked for Lord Pádraig Ó Riain, who came forward. They spoke of the many years he had been involved in the Society, his time as Seneschal, his running of events and his work setting up and breaking down events for others. Wishing to recognise his many works, Pádraig was made a Companion of the Order of the Silver Wheel and given a scroll crafted by Heather Rose de Gordoun.

Celia le Taverner was summoned and Their Majesties spoke of her time attending previous Royals and her time spent braiding hair for others, and how she made others feel good about themselves. The King and Queen wished to reward such works and Awarded her Arms and gave the new Lady Celia a scroll with calligraphy and illumination by Lady Aesa Lokabrenna Sturludottir and words by Lord Arthur le Taverner.

King Brion then announced the winners of the tourney held that day. Duke Brennan mac Fearghus was called forward as the winner. He was presented a glass in recognition of his feat. His Majesty then called for Lord Corwin Blackthorn and praised his comportment in the lists and gave him a glass that he might remember his accomplishment.

Their Majesties then asked for Baron Simon Montgumery. That morning, Simon had been sent to vigil to contemplate whether he would accept the accolade of the Order of Chivalry. Simon knelt before the thrones and offered that he would be honoured to accept the belt of a Knight. Simon first returned his squire’s belt to his knight, then King Brion noted that he was very pleased to be the one to knight his great-grandsquire. Worthies from across the Known World came to speak on Simon’s behalf and, those words accepted, he was then girded with the spurs, belt, and chain of knighthood. Simon offered his oath of fealty. Their Majesties dubbed him Sir Simon Montgumery and King Brion gave him the last blow to be accepted unanswered. A scroll to commemorate the day, crafted and sealed by Pan Jan Janowicz Bogdanski was presented.

The business of the day finished, King Brion and Queen Anna thanked the people of Bergental and the people of the East for supporting Them and attending Their Coronation. On that note, Court was closed and Their Majesties processed out.

These are the events of the day as I recall them. My thanks to all the scribes, heralds, Champions, guards, retainers, event staff, and attendees for their help creating a wonderful day.

Pray know I remain,
For Crown and College,

Master Rowen Cloteworthy

OP Changes and Updates

Greetings to the people of the East and beyond! -

First, there have been some changes to where the East Kingdom Order of Precedence is located. We had the main page in a temporary spot while we got the data from the wiglaf site moved over, but now that that's all done we've corrected all the links and addresses.

The main page of the OP, with links to the OP database, the historical list of Kings and Queens of the East, the Former East Kingdom Principalities, the Order of March, and the Precedence of Baronies, Provinces, and Shires, can be found in it's proper place at http://op.eastkingdom.org/

There is a link from op.eastkingdom.org to the OP database. However, if you'd like to save a step you can go directly to the database at http://op.eastkingdom.org/op.php

As of today, everything for the reign of Their Majesties Brennan II and Caoilfhionn II is up to date. Awards for the current reign can be found here - http://op.eastkingdom.org/awards_by_reign.php?reign_id=98. I'm still working on some corrections and data entry inherited from the reign of Omega V and Etheldreda IV and hope to have those awards listed soon.

I'd like to thank everyone involved in moving the database from it's old home at wiglaf to its new home at http://op.eastkingdom.org. I'd very much like to thank Lord Gun∂ormr Dengir for hosting the OP for the last several years and for his help with the move and Baron Mael Eoin mac Echuid for all his work porting the OP back into East Kingdom space. Thank you both very much! I'd also like to thank Lord Joel of Vestfell, Baroness Christina Jenevra de Carvalhal, and again Lord Gun∂ormr Dengir for their help with the transition and ongoing code changes.

There are still some errors in the database code. We are aware of a few and are working to correct what we can as quickly as possible. The one most of you will run into is that the “Corrections” link in the Precedence Database isn’t working. For now, please send an email with changes or corrections to Shepherds.Crook@EastKingdom.org. I will get to your revisions as quickly as time allows. Thank you all for your understanding and patience.

Please feel free to forward or distribute this message as you will.

For Crown and College,
Pray know I remain,

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)

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.

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?

*2016-10-08 - Unofficial Report - GGG and Rose Tourney*

On the 8th of October, Anno Societatis LI, or 2016 in the Common Era, Their Majesties Brion III and Anna III rode to Their Barony of Carillion, there to attend Ghosts, Ghouls, and Goblins and the Ladies of the Rose Tourney.

Their Majesties Opened Court by inviting in Duchess Kiena Stewart and Duchess Caoilfhionn inghean Fhaolain, who hosted the Rose Tourney. Their Graces thanked the Barony of Carillion for hosting them, then announced the winners of the various categories. The overall winning team belonged to Duchess Etheldreda Ivelchyld.

The top team in archery was Countess Violante do Porto's team and the top archer was Master Peter the Red.

The top armoured combat team was also Duchess Etheldreda's, with the top chivalry combatant Master Ioannes Aurelius Serpentius and the top unbelted combatant Baron Rory McClellan.

The top rapier combat team belonged to Duchess Caoilfhionn. The top OGR fencer was Don Melchior Kriebel and the top non-OGR was Lord Titus Hostilius Nero.

Their Majesties invited the children of the East forward. When asked if the children liked the Society, one child exclaimed, “Yes! I love it!”. In keeping with Their Majesties’ philosophy that gifts such as these should come with some learning about the Society, King Brion and Queen Anna asked Duchesses Kiena and Caoilfhionn to come forward and speak to the children about courtesy before the children could claim their bounty.

The Crown then called for the event steward, Baroness Tysha z Kieva, and thanked her for her efforts putting together the event.

King Brion and Queen Anna then invited those new to the Society to come forward. Queen Anna spoke briefly to them, making them welcome, then the newcomers were offered tokens that they might remember their first steps in the SCA.

Next, Anastasia Wolf of House Carpathia was called for. Their Majesties noted that she served as a water bearer and entertained people with Middle Eastern dance. Finding her contributions worthy, Anastasia was made a Lady of the Court and Awarded Arms. She was given a scroll to commemorate this, with calligraphy by Master Jonathan Blaecstan and illumination by Baroness Ellesbeth Donofrey.

Lord Aharon Ben Ze'ev was summoned and Their Majesties spoke to him of his work in Settmour Swamp as an event steward, cook, and event staff and, in light of these good works, inducted him into the Order of the Silver Wheel. Aharon was given a scroll made by Mistress Heather Rose de Gordoun to mark the occasion.

King Brion then spoke briefly about the Orders. For the duration of the reign, when in tight quarters or with larger Courts, members of the various Orders may be asked to stand in place, rather than gather around the newest Order member. It is hoped that this small change will help speed the longer Courts.

Their Majesties then requested that Master Erhart von Stuttgart attend them. They spoke of his works crafting brass needles, hooks and eyes, and pins, and drawing of wire. They heard the words of Their Order of the Maunche and inducted Erhart into that Order. There was no scroll present, but there were words provided by Master Ryan McWhyte.

The Crown then called for Duke Gavin Kilkenny. King Brion mentioned that “back in the day”, it was not common to receive regalia when elevated to the peerage. Friends of His Grace felt this should be rectified and were called forward to present him with a hood for his induction into the Order of the Pelican these many years past.

Queen Anna spoke briefly about a day she described as “delightful” and King Brion called “excellent”. The business of the Court concluded, Their Majesties retired to their rooms.

These were the events of the Court as I recall them. My thanks to the event staff, retainers, guards, heralds, scribes, and all those others who made the event the thing it was.

Pray know I remain,
For Crown and College,
- Master Rowen Cloteworthy

Unofficial Court Report - Smoking Rocks 40th Anniversary Celebration

Though the day started overcast with a bit of rain, there was naught but comradery and lightheartedness to be found among the attendees of the Barony of Smoking Rocks 40th Anniversary Celebration, held on the 23rd of April, Anno Societatis 50, reckoned 2016 in the Common Era.

The day’s revels were attended by Their Majesties Kenric III and Avelina III. In mid-afternoon, upon completion of the rapier and armoured tourneys and the arts and sciences competition, Their Majesties opened Court. They invited Their Excellencies Smoking Rocks join Them and to conduct what business they had in Baronial Court. Smoking Rocks Court concluded, Their Majesties resumed Their own Royal Court.

First to speak to the King was Ceawlin Alreding, Baron of Smoking Rocks. Baron Ceawlin recalled a time in the past when a faithful family retainer named Kenric had served as his cupbearer. At the time, Baron Ceawlin had promised his retainer a ha’penny at Christmastide. Kenric’s fortunes now much changed, His Excellency still wished to fulfill his debt and presented His Majesty with his ha’penny and his thanks.

Their Majesties called for Ysabella de Coventry and spoke of her service to thrown weapons and archery. They wished to pass on the appreciation of her work by Their predecessors, Omega V and Etheldreda IV, and gave her a scroll Awarding her Arms from the 22nd of August, A.S. 50, 2015 C.E. at the  Equestrian and Thrown Weapons Championships. The scroll was prepared by Lady Aaradyn Ghyoot.

The Crown then called for the children of the East and offered them toys from the Kingdom’s coffers, if they could catch Ulf the Dragon Slayer. Ulf ran out of Court with the box, followed by a dozen children and much joyful cheering.

King Kenric and Queen Avelina called for Lasair an Fhraoich and spoke of her tablet weaving and work on the inkle loom. They called for Their Order of the Silver Brooch and made Lasair a member of that Order, with a scroll to commemorate that crafted by Lord Vettorio Antonello.

Their Majesties called for those new to the Society and several people approached. Their Majesties offered them tokens of appreciation and thanked them for participating.

Lord Haakon Ragnarsson was summoned before the Crown and praised his work as an anchor of his shield wall. They called for Their Order of the Silver Tyger and caused Haakon to be numbered among them, with a scroll saying such prepared by Lady Onora inghean ui Rauic.

Their Majesties felt Their Order of the Silver Tyger incomplete and called for Baron Bruka the Saracen. King Kenric praised his work in the shield wall and his skill with pole arm, and named Bruka to the Order with a scroll prepared by Mistress Nest verch Tangwistel.

Mistress Nest verch Tangwhistle then approached the thrones in her role as Tyger Clerk of the Signet and swore fealty, and was given fealty in return by the Crown.

The Crown called for Lady Marguerite von Elfenau. They spoke of her work as a chonicler, her musicianship with Fracta Modi, and how she opens her house for project days and newcomer get togethers. They called for Their Order of the Silver Wheel and caused Marguerite to be counted as one of that Order. She was presented with a framed piece of stained glass crafted by Lady Solskinn of Smoking Rocks with words by Mistress Nest verch Tangwistle.

Their Majesties then spoke of the polling that had recently been conducted in the Barony of Smoking Rocks in its search to find successors to Baron Ceawlin Alreding and Baroness Molly Blythe. Their Majesties announced that they had found the heirs to the Baronial Seat and called for Lord Richard Leviathan and Lady Alys Attewater and bade them plan for their Investiture.

Queen Avelina then thanked the Barony and the event steward for a wonderful day and offered her expectations for a wonderful feast.

Before the Court of Their Majesties could be closed, Master Padraig Dubh MacEanruig, who had been made a member of the Order of Chivalry twenty years prior, came forward and asked if Their Majesties would accept his fealty. King Kenric said he would much rather have Master Pat at his side than opposing him and so accepted his offered fealty and gave him the fealty of the Crown in return.

There being no further business, the Court of Kenric III and Avelina III at Smoking Rocks 40th Anniversary was concluded. My thanks to the heralds - Mistress Suba al-Hadid, Lady Amy verch Rychard, Lord Agapios Cargos, and Justinius Alexander Eternus - and all the retainers and scribes and others who supported the Crown and the event.

For Crown and College,
Pray know I remain,

Introduction
Welcome to all from the populace of the East Kingdom!

The East Kingdom is part of the Society for Creative Anachronism, or SCA for short. We study and adopt the past-times and crafts, both martial and peaceful, of the Middle Ages.

Every person plays a part in creating the atmosphere, and participates in whatever activities and studies they find interesting. For some that means making period clothing. For others it means learning calligraphy, armored combat, fencing, archery, dancing or countless other activities that interest them.
