[Elfsea] Investiture Planning

We don't need to get aggressive about this. Such things are 
always at the Crown's discretion. They will definitely want 
to be present at an investiture and they may have a prior 
(possibly mundane) committment for Defender's date. They 
may believe with all work a new Crown must do and things 
they must learn, that they will not be ready to make a 
decision on something as important as the new B&B for 
Ansteorra's best Barony. Or something else.

Just because we are ready does not mean the Crown is 

Please make your opinions known to TRH (coronet at ansteorra.org) 
but remember to give them the honor and politeness they and their 
position deserves. 

In service,
Caelin on Andrede

>If I may be blunt for a moment ... Why?
>There seems to be communication happening from Their Highnesses to the current leadership (Seneschal, Vicar & Vicaress) regarding this subject.  I certainly encourage everyone to let Their Highnesses know what they want to do ... but communication can go in two directions.  What are Their Highnesses problems/concerns with a Defender investiture? It seems to me that this group is it's people, not just it's leadership.  What "new information" does the Seneschal have?
>This Barony has had problems, fine, accepted.  But we are vassals of this Crown, and I for one would like to know in their opinion what situations rise to the level of continuing to deny this Barony a Baron &/or Baroness.
