The award constitutions are by extension part of Ansteorran Kingdom Law, but
they're not physically or electronically attached to it.  The award
constitutions may be found at:


It is an Adobe Acrobat document, so you must have at least the Acrobat
Reader installed on your computer.

In the future, the "Honors" button will lead to a page on which there are
buttons for every award, which will in turn lead to a page for that award on
which there is a discussion of the history and purpose, as well as the badge
and/or insignia, for that award.  That is a job I will undertake after the
current technical situation is smoothed out.

This is a perfect example of a situation in which you call up someone and
give *brief* wordfame and perhaps some token of thanks.

That is, in brief, a correct assessment.
