Baronial Missive, August 10, 2015

(Return to Andelcrag Web Site)

Good People of the Barony of Andelcrag! Your Baronesses have returned from the Pennsic War, and have many words to share. First and foremost, we wish to thank those members of the Barony (and those outside it) who contributed not only to the set up of the Baronial Encampment and ran it, but also made the Hafla a rousing success! So many people helped make Andelcamp a perfect place to call home for two weeks, and your hard work made it so much easier for Your Baronesses to attend to other duties outside camp. From the bottoms of our hearts, THANK YOU.

Knowing well the hard work of the Barony of Andelcrag, not only to it’s occupants, but also to foreign friends, King Tom of Northshield awarded the Barony a King’s Cypher. For the great support we have given him over the years, even prior to him ruling Northshield, he wished to make it known how much he appreciates what we do and continues to love the Barony of Andelcrag.

Now, for news of our populace: Estelle de la Mere was elevated to the Order of the Laurel at Midrealm Great Court. Faraldr was given an Award of Arms. Rijckaert vanUtrecht was put on Vigil for the Order of the Pelican. Huzzah to our Populace for their dedication to the Society and being recognized for it! In news of Baronial Awards, we gave Masarrah a Bolt for her work assisting the Baronesses in small ways and big ways throughout the Wars. We gave Saehildr Barngodr a Guardant Ram for her stalwart and sunny assistance with the Andelcrag children- they were all happily playing under her watchful eye. Lastly, we awarded a Bolt to Baron Magnus of Calontir. There was an unfortunate incident involving a fire in the Baronial camp Kitchen and when the call of ‘FIRE’ rang out, Magnus (a retired firefighter) ran over to assist with an extinguisher. No one was injured and no damage suffered to our trailer, and we wished to recognize his valiant efforts on our behalf.

To our Champions who traveled with us : Padraig, Gilebert, and Raphael. Thank you for your willingness to come out to the Pennsic War to represent the Barony. Thank you for your support in set-up and tear-down of the camp and for the Hafla. Thank you for your prowess and humility. Your deeds will not be forgotten. You will find more opportunities to represent your Barony in the coming months. You will be tested.

We would also give many thanks to The Cove, for their hospitality towards Us and our friends when our kitchen and shower trailer took much longer to have delivered than we anticipated. They also took great care of our Royalty and our Baronial cousins at Midrealm Great Court, keeping them hydrated with water or tea. To the Cove, THANK YOU.

We are home, safely ensconced within the walls of the Manor and have started the laundry from War.

We will see you soon at Summer’s End, hosted by the Canton of Nordheim.

In Service to the Dragon Throne- Antonia and Collette, Baronesses of Andelcrag
