I think this is a great idea. Its important to remember those that have
helped to create our society.
I do not know any names, but can think of a ceremony that would be
appropriate to what you are looking for. In times past all hallows eve was
the time to honor the deceased. May hap that would be appropriate here to. 1
night in October to gather around and light a candle for each member that
has passed on, with a story or a memory about that person. just a thought

This isn't news to a lot of us, but we are a group that is old enough that
we are losing part of our history. I want to preserve part of it, and this
is what I have so far.
It is a list of our former members who have gone on to whatever reward
awaits us ignorant mortals.? I'd like help with it.
What I have here are the names we knew them by, their year (CE) and month of
death, and?their mundane names, just to help you remember. What I'd like is:
Any names/people I've missed.
The two missing years and months
More complete or better persona names if you know them.
Ideas for a title for this Role of Honor. I've considered "Fallen Stones". I
personally would like the name to hark back to our identity as the Keep that
wards the North, as some of the non-armigerous awards our nobles have
Here is the list:
Jean Jacques Luc Bene
William of Dover
Donald of Northkeep
Cerelia de Lacy of Sherborne
I have been told, I forget by who, that Catherine le Flemyng (Kathy
Morrison) belongs in this list, but I haven't been able to confirm that. If
any of you know, I'd appreciate finding out, and if she does, I'd like to
know the approximate date.
Don't take this as a downer during this holiday season. Like I said, this is
our history, and I feel we need to preserve it. I envision a quiet annual
remembrance, probably at Castellan, where those of us who wish gather and
one person volunteers to?speak for each of these fallen fellow Northkeepers
and tells those who might?be too new to?know something significant about
them, what we miss or what the Barony owes to them. Each of these people
made contributions we should remember, and be proud to remember.
The Dark Horde has such a ceremony now. It is only about a decade old but
has become an event deeply important and moving to many of us who attend
Pennsic War. We call those of us who ride with the Tengri the Khanate of the
