Even before the first formal courts of the war were held, several kingdoms elevated members of their populace or already had sent prople out of peerage vigils.
The first award of the war came during the first week, at Viscount Haakon’s bardic circle when King Malcolm and Queen Tessa ofÆthelmearc made Haakon’s brother, Boris Dragonslayer, a baron of their court.
Earlier this week, prior to the Rapier Town Battle, the Æthelmearc royalty elevated Illadore de Bedegrayne of the Barony Marche of the Debatable Lands, to the Order of the White Scarf.
King Felix and Queen Madeleina of the Midrealm sent three people on Pelican vigil prior to their Thursday court.
One of the additions we at the Pennsic Independent would like to make this year is the inclusion of kingdom court reports. We know this is something that our readers—both at war and on the Internet—would be particularly interested in.
We are pleased to announce that Pennsic Independent typesetter Lady Beatrice de Winter was honored by TRMs Rurik and Angelik of Æthelmearc at the 29th Annual Festival of the Passing of the Ice Dragon in the Barony of the Rhydderich Hael on March 19th, A.S. XXXIX and made a member of the Order of the Keystone, primarily for her work as the chronicler of the Barony of the Rhydderich Hael and publisher of the newsletter The Ice Dragon. She currently serves as Rhydderich Hael Baronial Mistress of the Lists.
With great support and acclaim, Pennsic Independent Publisher Heirusalem Crystoma was elevated to the Order of the Pelican at Midrealm Crown Tourney in the Shire of Narrental last Saturday, October 30th, A.S. XXXIX.

interrupted as an Inquisitor charged the show's master of ceremonies,
Captain Matthew Christopher, with witchcraft.
