Despite the threats of nasty weather, the trip from Jararvellir to Nordskogen to attend their annual 12th Night celebration was uneventful. I am sure that many people can fill in a lot of details of the day but I was able to get a few pictures, mostly of court, and this missive is to share the link to those pictures with those that are interested. The highlights of TRM AEsa Drottning and Kitadate-Tenno's court included two Officer Changes (Kenrick Bjarnson - Kingdom Chirurgeon and Elashava bas Riva - Kingdom Chronicler), a Saltire for Wulfgar von Ostrand, this reign's Great Bear--Berwyn Aethelbryght of Ackley, two AoAs for two people who were not there and I will not be the one to spoil the surpise, a Balefire for his research in rapier for Niccolo Ludovico Ragguzini, induction into the Order of the Pelican for Moraig Anne Drummond, and into the Order of the Laurel for Simon Morcar, and finally Margalit Medicus was put on vigil for Pelican to be done at a later date. In addition, Kou no Toshikage won the honour of being TRM's banner bearer at Gulf Wars and Simon Morcar was granted a marque as Captain of the Dragoons to muster a Company of Fence for purposes of supporting TRM's troops at the upcoming Gulf Wars.
My view of the event, although limited, can be found in the Kingdom gallery.

I remain, in service to the Northshield, our Society, and most of all, to the populace~~
