    Her Majesty's Court (III)

    Good sers and seras of the castle,

    In service of His Lordship, the Lord Chamberlain Launfal, with
    the deepest respect for the station and rank within this castle,
    in humble hopes only to be of assistance to the esteemed
    denizens of the castle, I hereby scribe of Her Majesty's
    Court held on the sixth day of this moon in the Inner Bailey,
    within the Throne Room.

    Over fifty denizens attended this audience that Her Majesty's
    great kindness granted unto the denizens, and moreover in
    observation of the Festival of Estrella transpiring in the
    Castle, both within and without the glorious Inner Bailey of the

    First and foremost, Her Majesty the Queen deigned to welcome the denizens into Her Majesty's Court. She then turned to thank the Winter Knight and Royal Consort, the Lord Chancellor Boreas, in observation of His Excellency's work and attentiveness to His
    Excellency's duties in Her Majesty's castle. And by the hand of
    Her Majesty's handmaiden, sera Miriela, a silver kaleidoscope was
    gifted to him.

    Her Majesty next spoke to Her loyal subjects. Stating that they
    had heard many stories of victory and triumph in the week of
    celebration, and asked if any of those present had such a story
    to share with the Court.

    The Duelist Faer gladly obliged, and told Her Graciousness of the
    Mystery Hunt organized by the Keepers. She related of how the the denizens participating in the great event, of the items and
    indeed - the person whom they had quested for in this Hunt, and
    of its conclusion into a display of elegance in the form of
    Dance. Her Majesty remarked of her approval toward the Duelist,
    and beckoned Faer to approach Her Majesty. The Duelist complied, and Handmaiden Miriela granted an aquamarine silver pin to Faer. The Queen explained that it was a gift from Her Majesty to the Duelist, who seemed both stunned and grateful for such generosity from Her Majesty.

    Her Majesty then asked if another had such a tale to speak of.
    but mentioned that it had to be brief, for there was much
    business to be attended to this evening. Ser Geograd stepped
    forward this request. With a deep bow in respect to the Queen,
    the ser spoke of the Dance Recital of sera Mintle: of its song,
    its dance and the acting of the wonderous event. The Queen duly
    thanked the ser for telling her of the event, and mentioned that
    perhaps the good ser would present his Play to Her Majesty

    Her Majesty now asked if any had business with Her Majesty to
    discuss. As there were none from those assembled, the Queen then proceeded to the task of announcing those appointments to titles of office or other honors granted to the denizens in Her

    sadness from leaving this path, as well as his joy and confidence
    in the guild that he leaves behind to continue in the work and
    service of the Lord Chamberlain and the worthy denizens of the
