Award Text

Prince Jean Paul de Sens wrote the scroll text for the award during their reign:

The skalds say when our ancestors came to this land, storms and winds, rain and fire beset them. As they learned to dwell in harmony, the fire and lightning became warmth and delight. The joy in the ferocity, the speed, and the power of Odin’s spear became a symbol of those who excelled in the moment. One such person is <Lillias MacGuffin>, who’s actions have caused the notice of the rulers, Jean Paul and Gilyan, first of that name, heirs to Romanius and Deanna, the Founders. For <name>'s exceptional nature, they are added to the order of the Thunderbolt, Odin’s favorites, and beacons for Vindheims people. Sing their praise, for they are favored on this day.


Created by Romanius Vesperianus and Deanna della Penna, April 30, LVI, AD 2022.
Revised by Jean-Paul de Sens and Gilyan Clonmacnoise, September 17, LVII, AD 2022.
