From the Chronicler

Greetings from the new Chronicler,

Crown Tourney was fought this month.  The winner was Sir Aaron MacGregor fighting for his lady Britta.  He now lives in Blacklake (Midland/Odessa but fought in his first fighting practice when he was an Aggie student here at Shadowlands.

I would like, with the A&S Minister, to set up and A&S web page.  I will then feature an artice from the web page in the Shadow.

In Service,
Master Jin Liu Ch'ang.

From the Seneschal

Greetings from the new Seneschal,

We have Kingdom Arts and Sciences on November 3rd.  I hope that everyone in the Shire has the opportunity to attend.  It is an honor for our Shire to host Kingdom A&S.  As such, I know that we will all work hard to make this event a success.  We haven't hosted a kingdom-level event in quite a while--let us show the crown of what we are capable.

In service,
Diego Quintana

From the Historian/Reeve

Same historian report as always...nothing. Maybe I'll finish it by the Shadowlands twenty-fifth year bash.

The reeve is official.  I've taken the class at Bryn Gwlad's Baronial.  Does anybody have the reeve's box?
