I was actually going to post something about this yesterday, but decided
not to. Thanks for calling me out Alden :-P. Yes, Ulsted & Ebe will be
using "Long live the Queen/King/Ansteorra." This means that during their
reign, if you are acting as court herald, please close court this way. If
you forget, no big, I'll be doing every court for U&E except for two (or
that's the plan at least). I don't know what we will do at Queen's since it
will be German (How does Heil Ansteorra sound?).
