My Dearest Friend,  Thank you so much for your inspiring words and kudos for
our Baronial family. We do indeed have awesome people in this Barony and
they are always willing to step up, sometimes it takes a while but they
always come through. That is what inspired Pace and I to offer ourselves to
the role of B&B. We knew to represent these awesome peoples throughout our
Kingdom would be both a joy and downright fun! We actually have 2 peoples
step up to be co autocrats yesterday. The feast this year is being prepared
by several cooks and I am sure as it gets closer we will have more step up.
We also have a good start to our Nobles Luncheon as well. I will never
forget when you stepped in to help me when I was both Seneschal and
autocrat. I was so happy to see you I couldn't hug you enough. Then our
Raven's Guild, ( recently got word fame at the B&B retreat, more on that at
Populace) began to do what they do best, work, work and work and they were
an awesome site in our kitchen along with other gentles from our group.In
fact you have helped twice when we were in need of a cooking friend! Crown
Tourney was a good example of how you are a Raven's Forter in heart!!
You are always welcome here in Raven's Fort and thank you for your most
inspiring true words about the peoples of Raven's Fort. We hope to see you
In love and light,
