Kingdom Seneschal stepping down

Mon, 2017-05-15 21:15

Greetings unto the People of the East,

After 3 and a half years serving the East as Kingdom Seneschal, it is time for me to look for my successor. I will be stepping down at the Coronation of Ivan and Matilde and TRH will be interviewing interested parties over the next few months. If you are interested in the position please send a letter of interest and a resume to the King, Queen, Prince, Princess and myself (please include me on all letters of interest).

I am not going to include a list of duties and responsibilities. If you are interested but don’t know what the office entails, talk to the next Kingdom Seneschal about becoming a deputy to get to know the position.

In Service,

Mercedes Vera de Calafia

From the Kingdom Archivist

Sun, 2017-05-07 18:10

Greetings unto the Populace of the Great Kingdom of the
East. I hereby bring you news that I have assumed the
position of Kingdom Archivist. It was with slight
trepidation that I then unloaded a sizable pile of boxes
into my basement!

What is in these boxes? Documents. Many, many documents.
Documents that need to be kept for real world or Kingdom
legal reasons, mostly boring stuff, like waivers and such.
I have the daunting task ahead of me of sorting through it
all and tidying things up. I will put forth the effort to
bring it all into the 21’st century and transfer that which
is suitable to a digital format, greatly simplifying the
task of Archiving.

But I have also discovered that there are documents that
are of historical interest. Documents with pretty
illumination, calligraphy and many signatures. Of course
these will be preserved in their physical format, but I
intend to be working with the Web Ministers to bring
digital images of them to the Kingdom Website and
accessible for the enjoyment of all.

As things progress I will be bringing you updates here!

YIS, Baron Goerijs “the Unpronounceable” Goriszoon, OSC
