Note that this is not just good for one person to ask about another --
it's good for one person to check on their own stuff and correct
errors.  For example, I found that my Oak didn't get into the Roll of
Precedence.  (Did I not do a court report?!)  Since there are no
charters for the Oak, I took a blank piece of paper and did a brass
rubbing of my medallion, and got Edwin to write a statement on the
paper beside the image (to the effect of "I inducted Daniel into the
Order of the Oak at Twelfth Night of [year].  Edwin Steppes").

As for local RPs: I don't want to dump water on people's enthusiasm,
but I think that the local keeping track of the kingdom awards is too
much duplicated work.  The local *should* keep track of local suff,
because nobody else is.

Hmmm ... officers, especially locals, too often lose stuff from
previous tenures, or fall down on the job.  Should Zodiacus start
keeping track of local stuff?  Two more columns on the court report
form: Other Baronial Awards, Other Baronial Honors (meaning champion,
warlord, bard, whatever)?
