Magister Taran the Wayward, Kingdom of Meridies

I wish to thank publicly two of your populace for their service at Gulf Wars. One I know the name of, the other I sadly do not (but I believe is known to those I will mention (edit: and now known to share appropriate wordfame))

The opening processional of Gulf Wars is a fine tradition of pageantry, but often visiting Crowns do not have a herald within their traveling retinue. Such was the case this year.

I was seeking to recruit (perhaps recruit is too tame a term--draft is more accurate) heralds to represent some Crowns who needed appropriate representation. Most all of the voice heralds from my own kingdom were already engaged, so I sought assistance elsewhere.

When I approached members of Ansteorra, Thomas de Groet and Aldonza Gonzales Escajeda offered themselves to help.

Their efforts to represent Crowns not their own does great honor upon the Black Star Kingdom.

In gratitude,
Taran the Wayward, OP

If I am to be called into the Royal Presence, please notify me enough in advance so that I can dress properly. I would be embarrassed to come into court looking slovenly.
