When people pay you to be somewhere, they usually want you to do work... Except to get some more titles to be bestowed upon you... :D

Right now, the only titles that are higher than what I have is Court Baroness and Order of the Pelican. I doubt I'm up for either one. LOL!

It could also be some additional lower titles, some of which come with extra workload... :D

There is promotion, and diversification of duties... :D

Either that or Their (soon-to-be) Majesties really, really want to give you some award or recognition in their first court, which is a bit of a big deal. And thus want to make sure you're there to receive it.

So probably a good thing.

I've known him a good 25yrs, so that's possible. Last time they gave me a Token of Appreciation for my years of hard work, then gave a Court Barony to one of the others down here who also worked his ass off.
The fun thing is Prince Gareth makes his own coronets to hand out.

Well, I did not get called up into Court.

However, I did have a good friend get elevated to Court Baroness for her amazing skills at portraiture.

On the other hand, every male friend I ran into up there all gave me big strong, long hugs -- the kind that pulls your soul back into place. :luv:

I've been feeling a little out of it in the SCA lately, but I day tripped to An Tir's May crown, and what a list field. It was open this year to out of kingdom participants. We had 88 fighters, 12 Dukes. Finals were Duke Morgan(Formerly of Atenveldt?) and Duke Sven(King of An Tir 5 ish times?) and Morgan went 5/1. Beautiful passes, talk about pain wizards.

I decided to ride the tide of inspiration and get some of my kit resolved. Decided to make a Muscleata out of hardened leather, and it came out better than I deserved. Really my kit is writing checks my prowess can't cash but it looks pretty good and doesn't weigh anything.
Ogrek is beyond strategy.

They did give me a second Award of Excellence this year. No scroll, but the Court Herald didn't know my full name, and asked me if I wanted to call myself into Court :lol: :lol: :lol:

Got asked if I'd be at the event THIS weekend to. Last event two of my friends got Court Baronies. Third time charm? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Speaking of Crown Tournaments, Sir Seto Gesshuko won the Midrealm Crown, the day after Duchess Kaylah the Cheerful became Princess by her own hand in Ealdormere (after beating up her husband in the semi-finals). It was a good weekend for thumbing the nose at the various... unsavory Crowns that have been making unwanted news the last year and a half.

Æthelmearc is having Duke Timothy & Duchess Gabrielle as heirs. I think this is #8? They're Good People.

He's the one who runs Ædult Swim at Pennsic and again in February/March. More a giant mixed Fighter Practice than an event, but it's drawn Duke Sean from the West just to cross swords with folks. Last year we had Eldermereans, Atlantians, Caidans, Westoners, Trimarians, and of course Easterners and Midlers. Deep pool of combattants, from Knights/MODs to grant-levels, old-timers and new, all there to teach and test each other.

He made it. His lady posted selfie with Rogue in the background grinning like a fiend while holding up his Pennsic Site Token.

Bastard. I'm jealous. :(

Well, Pennsic is over, and all have made their way home safely.
The Middle Kingdom (and Allies like Æthelmearc) won all but ONE War Point. Clean sweep, leaving the MidRealm once again ahead of the East in total Victories.

Closer to home, one good friend was given a Fleur d'Æthelmearc for his artwork and teaching (next reward would be a Peerage). Three gentles from my area were made Baron/ess of the Royal Court, for their hard work and support of the Crown (one gentle has been a Herald for over 40yrs). My sis-in-law was FINALLY given an award for her hard work, after I and many others had been sending messages about her for months.
