The Festival of the Passing of the Ice Dragon, the biggest A&S event in Æthelmearc & East Kingdom, has been cancelled due to Corvid19 concern.

The college where the Barony of Rhydderich Hael was to hold Ice Dragon this weekend has closed its campus to limit outside contact.

FROM THE BLACKSTONE RAID AUTOCRAT!
It is with a heavy heart and sad hand that I must tell you Blackstone Raid is officially cancelled for 2020. Federal and State Guidelines indicate that Social Distancing Guidelines are in effect until April 30. The Society and Kingdom have both asked that we follow our Federal and State Guidelines.

Let us not become discouraged. This will pass and Blackstone Raid 2021 will be BIGGER and BETTER then ever. Seeing our family will be all the sweeter and our parties all the longer (bad wine has another year to get nastier).

Thank you to all the staff and everyone who has been working so hard this year. Keep your plans, your notes because you are gonna be needed next year.

Please contact the reservationcrat for any refunds.

All the Best,

Baron Cunedda Kell (Autocrat)

Yeah. We're probably going to have to skip Coronation and Crown. It's going to play merry havoc with the calendar, but that beats getting a bunch of people killed.

Midrealm Coronation has been canceled. The coronation ceremony will be held with just the necessary officers and livestreamed. Crown Tournament is still on as of now, but that's subject to change.

Æthelmearc Crown will be streamed via Æthrel Court this Saturday starting at 1pm, via Zoom.
Limit 300 people.

The sad thing is my brother was *really* looking forward to stepping down as Baron at Blackstone Raid. He's had it for 6.5yrs. So... we might have to find a way to do it via Zoom as well, but that will be juggling him and his wife, the incoming Baron and Baroness, and TRMs.
Royal Court proved it *can* be done, if you have the equipment, which I don't think we do.

So, how 'bout that round of banishments this week? Nazidoctor von Deathcamp was obvious (once you'd heard of him), but Ronan Blackmoor was a long time coming.

I didn't know the Ronan Blackmoor story, so I can't comment on it.
The sad thing is if Nazidoctor had kept his mouth shut we'd STILL have no clue. His first name was so common, the last name an existing Town, no one connected the dots. There's a big discussion on the Heraldry boards now about how to check for this in the future.

Sachsenhausen was just the concentration camp by my understanding; the closest town was Oranienburg.

Ronan is... special. He likes to try to win arguments on Facebook by talking about how he's an FBI special agent and knows more than you but can't say because it's classified. He's also wildly Islamophobic, advocates police crackdowns against basically everybody, is known to harass his fellow Trimaran Masters of Defense (notably the Jew and black man among them), and is only a Defender in the first place because he was buddy buddy with the king at the time, who elevated him in a private court at Pennsic without the rest of the Order present because they had unanimously objected to his elevation.

Ah. Good Riddance to Ronan then

And we only KNOW the Trimaran Order of Defense objected because Baldar made a point of saying that at the elevation.

I'm just waiting for something like that to come out of Æthelmearc. :(

I hope for your sake it doesn't happen. Talking with Ronan is like talking to an angrier Stewie at SDI; it's exhausting.

Did you see that Laurel is offering Free Name Changes for those who have questionable names? I wonder how many will accept, and how many will try to hide?
