Feast Menu for Calontir Spring Crown 2019

Greeting, Friends!

The feast for Calontir Spring Crown, in honor of Calontir’s 35th birthday, is an early Anglo-Saxon one fit for those of us who remember the days when we were known as the wearers of dirty brown wool.

The dishes that do not say they are meat or dairy don’t contain any, and all veg-based dishes will be available without meat or dairy for those who wish – this unabashed carnivore believes in being vegan-friendly. Please let troll know when you register if you are meatless for the feast, and you’ll get a little bundle of herbs to set at your table to let the servers know.

Yours,

Elspeth Modlen ferch Daffydd

From Their Royal Majesties: Letters of Intent and Why We Fight

Unto the Chivalry, Huscarls, Fyrdmen, and Men at Arms of the Kingdom of Calontir, and unto those who inspire them to deeds of greatness,
Greetings, from Donngal, Fourth of that name, King of Calontir, and Catalina, Fierce Queen of the Heartlands.The deadline grows close for submitting letters of intent to contend to become Our heirs. Before that deadline passes, please consider our words:
Different Kingdoms have developed different traditions surrounding Crown Tournament:

Some Kingdoms allow anyone from the Known World to enter, whist others have held that only the Chivalry may enter without an express invitation from the Crown. Our Kingdom Laws reflect a desire, borne from our first days as a Kingdom, that nobody, Crown or common, should be able to influence the outcome, outside of the will of the combatants themselves, and our long-held tradition which states that you shouldn’t enter crown unless you’re there to win it; a pushback against the notion that crown is a good place to be seen by the chivalry.

We were reminded, today, by a good friend’s post from a far Kingdom, that every fighter in the list lends their renown to the eventual victor.

To that end, we ask each of you, fighter and consort, to search your hearts, and if you are ABLE to serve as Crown (as opposed to actively wanting it), then we beseech you, take up pen, then sword, and bring your renown to add to the glory of our eventual heirs, and to the history of our great Kingdom.
In Love and Service to the Crown & Kingdom
]|)onngal & Catalina
