the populace of Selviergard,
For those of you who were able to attend the
Prince's Prize Tourney I thank you. What a wonderful
event to spend time with family and friends and the
Barony of Selviergard made a good showing in force
to enjoy the event held in these lands. I witnessed
many amazing deeds from combatants and gentles alike
and am sure that Their Highnesses were quite proud
The Barony of Selviergard is rich in both artisans
and resources. It is time once again to start
collecting items of Largess to showcase not only the
skills of our artisans but to demonstrate the size
of our hearts as well. These items will be given to
visiting Royalty, used for Yule gifts to other
Baron's and Baroness as a sign of good-will, and
given as thank you gifts to individuals. Please make
sure that your name and group, along with any other
needful information, is included on such gifts so
that in the event your contributions travel far the
receiver can thank you personally.
It is the privilege and duty of the Baron to give
awards to those gentles who are deserving
recognition for their efforts and skills. However, I
cannot be in all places at all times (as much as I
try) and can easily overlook acts of amazing
dedication to The Dream from fellow Selviergardians.
This is where you come in: if you would like to
recommend somebody for an award please let me know
who and why you feel that they should receive such
