  • Chronicle of Happenings (18.10.15-18.10.21)

    For the period starting the fifteenth day of the Tenth Moon, and ending the twenty-first day of the Tenth Moon, Eighteenth Year of the Recent Awakenings;

    In accordance to the will of the Lord Chamberlain, and in upholding the duties charged to the Office of the Chronicler, we hereby submit an accounting of this week's happenings.


    Accusations against Peer result in challenge
    Many of the Upper Baileys were shocked when the Duke of Rumiss, Lucus, posted upon the bulletin board a rather scathing opinion of Lord Vestio's courage and character. The posting was prompted after an unkind comment about the noble resulted in a commoner challenging the Duke, accusing him of speaking behind the peer's back.

    While the Duke refused the challenge due to the disparity of rank, in his posting he indicated he felt it important to show he does not object to making his opinion known to Lord Vestio from the front. The posting resulted, in short order, the announcement of a challenge from Lord Vestio to the Duke of Rumiss, which was then accepted.

    The terms are in the process of being set; Lord Vestio insisted the duel itself be unto death, even though the Duke suggested gentler terms. A time and date has not yet been announced for this very high-profile exercise of the Code Duello.

    Royal Collegium nears re-opening
    In just a few days of this publication, the Royal Collegium will begin accepting applications from scholars who had previously laboured under the auspices of the scholastic institution. It is the first wave of applications under the lead of Sir Howe, the new Dean of the Royal Collegium.

    The Dean noted that it will take about a Moon to sort out, assign, and ascertain the internal ranking of applicants, but once that task is completed, the Collegium will take applications from the Winter Court, followed by the Higher levels of the aristocracy.

    Noble awakens from long slumber
    Amongst the unprecedented numbers of re-awakenings recently is Lady Avaria, one of the first guests of the New Awakenings to attain the honour of nobility. The history-minded Lady's first order of business is to re-establish her household after her long sleep, as it has been many years since she has walked the Realm.

    The second task is to learn what has happened during the past four years of meditation. The current head of the Household, Mistress Jerisa, has made it known the Lady desires factual information and first-hand accounts of notable events of the past years. These accounts should be directed to Mistress Jerisa.


    Beasts slowly returning to beastiary
    The magical beasts accidentally unleashed from Princess Maeve's beastiary are slowly making their way back to the magical tome as people discover the right musical rhymes to placate them.

    Thus far, the return of the caticorn, tooth fairy and lunar moth have been confirmed, while the armored weasel, spiderpuppy, a rabbit-mouse-like creature, an elephantine creature, a shadowstalker, two multi-tailed foxes (a mother and her kit), a faerie dragon, and a regal stag are known to wander free as of yet.

    If you know of any other magical creature to roam, or others that have been reclaimed, please contact the Office of the Chronicler with details.

    Former Realm holiday acknowledged
    The fifteenth day of the Tenth Moon was once dedicated as Ardor Day, though in recent years it has been held in the Second Moon of the year, to avoid crowing special Ghost Ball events.

    However, the memory of the event was celebrated with a fun evening of cakes and games as Mistresses Theresa and Adeline hosted "Not-Ardor Day."

    "It was an anniversary I was dreading," Mistress Theresa explained. "I was to be married on Ardor Eve six years ago (but the wedding was called off at the last minute). I was dreading Ardor Day already, only to find out it had been moved. Then I decided it might be fun to celebrate the -old- holiday and make it a celebration rather than let myself be sad on a day that might otherwise have been sad."

    With spooky readings of ominous journal entries by Senior Chronicler Euphelia and a game of old-fashioned Answers (suggested by Sir Darvius), and delicious cakes and drinks from sera Calamity and the Cooks, the evening was a success.

    This chronicle will be subject to changes and corrections, as we humbly ask that the readers indicate to us through their discretion any falsehood we may have mistakenly communicated. It is by means of the conservation of the Past that we continue to serve Her Majesty and give substance to those that follow.

    In service to Her Majesty Queen Vivienne, the Lord Chamberlain, the Chronicler's Office, and the Denizenry of our Gracious Queen's Realm;

    Senior Chroniclers, seras Euphelia and Roisine
