While I am digging through my files also have the constitution for the Azure Keystone. This was During Galen and Allesandra's term as our Baron and Baroness During this time the crown asked that All Baronies maintain a copy of their Service Orders constitution on file with Star Principal Herald. 

I was asked by the crown and the Principal herald at the time to facilitate this and I was privileged as a herald to have the opportunity to assist in writing a constitution for the service order of my home barony. 

This is what was penned to record for the Keystone.
