Bards all, pay heed!
  Let it be known that Honorable Lady Elanor O'Ruark, Premier Bard of Ansteorra, will not let this challange go unanswered! 
  I will take up this gauntlet and show the Knowne World that The Bard of Ansteorra holds her Kingdom and her Crown in the highest of honor and esteem, and no other shall be higher in my eyes, or my heart.
  For the honor and glory of their Majesties and the Sable Star!
  Your most humble servant,

  Greetings and Salutations from Lady Chiara da Montepulciano, Royal Bard to King Brion of the East;  

I was wondering if you would be so kind as to forward the following notice to your Kingdom Bardic list, Your Kingdom Bard, or your Kingdom email list, so it may be be forwarded to the appropriate person?

Could you also please tell who must I contact to have this announced in your Kingdom Newsletter?

Thank you in advance,

Chiara da Montepulciano
East Kingdom Royal Bard



Unto all the Royal Bards of the Known World,  does Chiara da Montepulciano, Royal Bard to King Brion of the East, send greetings and salutations.
In honour of the Majesty of King Brion and for the love I bear my Kingdom, do I exhort you forthwith, to wit, that you* shall challenge me to craft a poem in whatsoever style as you desire, in whatsoever theme as you see fit, and in return I defy you likewise, that you shall craft a poem in whatsoever style and theme of my choosing, and in honour of your own Royalty and the land you hold dear.  

These challenges shall be issued as soon as possible in the months prior to August, and shall be presented at Pennsic, by yourself or your proxy, in a venue which may be attended by your Royalty, else presented in a private manner before your Majesties and mine own.  

If you should accept this challenge, much honour shall be yours, else you do disservice to your kingdom.
Please send your challenge to me, postehaste, at chiara at pir.net.  Include your name, your Kingdom, your position (King's Bard, Queen's Bard, Kingdom Bard, etc) and your email address.
In service to the Dream,
Chiara da Montepulciano
Royal Bard to King Brion of the East
*In the case of a Kingdom with both a King's and a Queen's bard, only one royal bard shall issue challenge, however both bards may work together to complete the challenge issued by me.  In the case of a Kingdom that does not have a Royal Bard, I will accept the first challenge from any bard of that Kingdom.
