Well, the day was full of just about as much event as anyone would ever want. The day was cold and clear which made it easy for many to get to the Barony of Caer Anterth Mawr for this year's Boar's Head which was billed as a Kristkindlmarkt and Baronial Investiture. I can't begin to cover the whole day but the highlights that I witnessed were the authorization of Mathias Wolfsbane (son of Syr Kaydian Bladebraker and Mistress Cassandra Antonelli) with HRM Siegfried, HRM Bardolph, and HRH Hrodir as his authorization partners; the vigiling and elevation of Thegn Grimmund Blackwing to the Order of the Pelican; the taking of my second protege, Lady Taryn Maeve MacTavish of the Shire of Silfren Mere; the last court of Baron Valerius Paencalvus and Baroness Alice of Kent to complete a full 18 years on the High Seats of Caer Anterth Mawr; the Investiture of Baron Alasdair Calum Montgomery and Baroness Kateryn of Cornwall as the 3rd Baron & Baroness of that fine Barony; the reaffirmation of Baroness Eithni ingen Talorgain as Baroness of Jararvellir; the vigiling of Greta Rahikainen for the Order of Pelican (no pictures but that's because I got to help beg the boon with Mistress Tatiana Melville--elevation to be at 12th Night in Nordskogen next month); HRM Siegfried left speechless by HRM Gwyneth and Jarl Syr Finn and our good Good Mum, Bridei; many well deserved awards that included King's Cyphers given by HRM Siegfried to Sean mac Alasdair and Ian ap Daffyd in the form of momentous that held a lot of meaning to all involved, Jarl Syr Finn inscribed in the Scroll of Honour for founding our grand Kingdom, many AoAs, etc., a Bridget's Flame for THL Moira ni Connell called the Strongbow, and recognition of THL Kindorn Broadbelt as a Baron of the Court for finding so many treasures of Northshield that included Windhaven, Shattered Oak, and Mistress Wyndreth Berginsdottir. Much singing, dancing, fighting, shopping, classes, laughing and crying, making of new friends and seeing some who have not graced our halls for many years occupied the many who were in attendance yesterday. In attendance were many from all corners of Northshield including our entire Royal Family and many from our mother Kingdom, the Midrealm, including all of their Royal Family.
