Welcome to our Kingdom!

A Missive from Their Royal Majesties of Æthelmearc:

Greetings Noble populace,

We are looking forward to celebrating Twelfth Night in many parts of Our Kingdom. We are very encouraged by the work of Our industrious citizens. This month will be a time to spend with friends and share stories of this magnificent year in Æthelmearc. A time of generosity and celebration as we move from short days in darkness toward a return of the light. For those going on the war trail to Gulf Wars- We have chosen His Lordship Madison Morai as Our heavy weapons Warlord and Countess Elena d’trois as Our fencing Warlord. We hope this finds you healthy and well.

Gareth and Juliana,
Rex and Regina Æthelmearc.


REQUEST FOR COMMENTARY – Proposed Corpora Change – Corpora IV.E.


Currently open for commentary is a proposal for a change to Corpora IV.E. Reason for suggested change is to clarify confusing language. Corpora currently reads:

ROYALTY, E. Limitations:
3.  Royalty may delegate:
a. the decision-making powers on legislation, distribution of armigerous awards and orders, or banishment, or
b. signature authority for warrants and rosters to territorial princes and princesses within their Kingdom.
Royalty may not delegate these powers or authorities to anyone else.

The proposed change reads as follows:

ROYALTY, E. Limitations
3. The Crown may delegate the following authority to those territorial princes and princesses within their Kingdom and may not delegate these powers or authorities to anyone else:
a. decision making powers on legislation of principality law with the approval of the Crown.
