Unto Their Majesties of Atlantia, Ragnarr and Lynnette, and the good populace of the Kingdom of Atlantia does Eldred AElfwald, Triton Principal Herald send greetings!
Although Thor's presence was felt throughout the day, evidence of him wielding the mighty Mjölnir's power was thankfully absent upon the field during the 44th Tourney of Ymir--instead it was felt by the frost giants, who were held at bay. Herein follows an accounting of Royal Court which was held in two parts, one in the morning and one in the late afternoon.
The first part of Their Majesties', Ragnarr and Lynnette, Royal Court was held in the morning.
First to appear before their Majesties was Owain Weale who was elevated to the ranks of Atlantia's nobility with an Award of Arms.
Baroness Bubba Blackhammer was then summoned and inducted into the Order of the Quintain for her service to the equestrian community.
Their Excellencies of Windmaster's Hill then had business to conduct by leave of Their Majesties, and an account of that Court will be forthcoming from Their herald.
Lord Bevan Bevan was called forth and was inducted into the Order of the Kraken for his prowess in combat.
Sir Jared the Bear's presence was required to induct him into the Order of the Sea Stag for his excellence in teaching armored combat.
The Northern Regional Rapier Warlord, Lady Marguerite de Lyon, was then summoned and inducted into the Order of the White Scarf.
For her skill in scribal arts and weaving, Lady Ellisif Gyðadottir was inducted into the Order of the Pearl.
Having been placed on vigil the evening before, Lady Tirzah MacCrudden was summoned before Their Majesties and affirmed her desire to be inducted to the Order of the Laurel, and with great ceremony, was so elevated.
Before pausing Court, Their Majesties called for Lord Greylond Crow in order to place him on vigil to contemplate elevation to the Order of Defense.
Flush with the triumph of Their Majesties' forces upon the field, Court was resumed in the late afternoon.
Lady Genevievfe d'Estelle was required to attend Their Majesties and was inducted into the Order of the Opal. Their Excellencies of Windmaster's Hill asked leave to recognize Lady Genevievfe further with Their Order of the Notus.
Lord Rolant Tannhauser was called before the Royal Presence and inducted into the Order of the Silver Osprey.
Lady Katel of Ipswich was then requested to appear before Their Majesties and was inducted into the Order of the Golden Dolphin.
Their Majesties invited all newcomers to attend Them and welcomed them to Atlantia and to the Society
A brief Baronial Court by Their Excellencies of Windmasters Hill, Daemon and Typhanie, was held. My recollection is there was a great deal of paperwork for that Court.
Their Majesties then recognized the children of Atlantia and sent them somewhat sedately after a squire who was carrying a chest for the children to raid.
Master Nikulai Ivanovich was called forth and he retired from the Office of Kingdom Minister of the List in favor of his successor, Lady Sara van Eerde.
Benjamin Middle was summoned before Their Majesties and was elevated to the ranks of Atlantia's nobility with an Award of Arms.
Lord Brian fitz Gerald then attended Their Majesties and was inducted into the Order of the Coral Branch.
Their Majesties then invited the Order of the Pearl to form an honor guard to celebrate the induction of Lady Hildegard Bergerin into the Order.
A long-awaited piece of paperwork was finally delivered. Rumors that Her Grace, Duchess Melisande de Belvoir, performed a "victory lap" upon receiving her Atlantian Duchy scroll may be exaggerated.
Lord Adelrich Falke was called to attend Their Majesties and was inducted into the Order of the Golden Dolphin.
The Head of the Atlantian Chiurgeons' Guild, Lord Alesander Davidson, was summoned, and he announced his successor to be Lord Erich von Kleinfeld.
A dispute has arisen between the Baronies of Hawkwood and Raven's Cove. Accusations of spying and barring of free passage upon the King's Highway were met with cries of "Fake News" and great shaking of fists and gnashing of teeth. Wise Ragnarr, Monarch of Atlantia, devised a means to solve this dispute in manner that benefits the Kingdom in preparedness for War, and required the aggreived Baronies meet upon the field in a series of friendly contests and to prepare themselves appropriately.
His Highness, Prince Christoph Krieger, was then requested to attend Their Majesties, and inducted into the Order of the Sea Stag. A unique medallion was passed to him by His Grace, Duke Anton.
An emissary from the Kingdom of Trimaris, Sir Forgal Kerstetter, returned to Atlantia bearing gifts and thanks to Their Majesties for Their support at Gulf Wars.
The last item of business was to summon the most interesting man in Atlantia, Lord Greylond Crow, to recognize him as a Peer of the Realm and induct him into the Order of Defense.
Here ends my account of the Court of Ragnarr and Lynnette, King and Queen of Atlantia, at the 44th Tourney of Ymir.
