As Namron's outgoing bard, I wish to second all that His Excellency

At any rate, it has truly been an honor to represent the fine Barony
of Namron as Bard for the past year, and I encourage all who are able
Lord Grímólfr Einarsson
...SO looking forward to it! :D

Tip: If your comic book geek isn't loudly complaining about something,
check carefully - you might have blacked out and killed it.
