To the people of the Great Barony of Flaming Gryphon, your Seneschal sends greetings!
The window for submitting Letters of Intent to be considered to wear the coronets of Flaming Gryphon has now closed. We have received Letters from four worthy couples. They are:
* The Honorable Lady Aminah al yazici bint Ismail & Lady Isibel inghean ui Bheollain
* The Honorable Lord Edward Foxley & The Honorable Lady Allegra Ginevra Soave da Napoli
* The Honorable Lord Timothy the Just & Lady Elizabeta Alegreza Foscari
* Baron William of Fairhaven & Mistress Isolde de la Ramee
The Letters of Intent are now online. You may read them at:
These four couples will present themselves before the Populace of Flaming Gryphon at the upcoming Baronial Championships so the people assembled may ask them questions as they see fit. We will have an hour's time, after the introduction of the contenders for Champion and before the fighting begins. I will ask each couple to make an opening statement (not over 5 minutes, please), after which the floor will be open for questions for the time remaining in the hour. I will also be available during the day for any who wish to ask about the remaining process.
In truth, I believe we could not ask for better candidates. I personally am already having a hard time deciding how I would rank these candidates on the poll, and I do not expect the job to get any easier upon hearing them at the upcoming forum.
I will see you at Baronial Championships!
In service, I remain...
