  • Please send a runner. He's likely to be in camp or working the event. Contact Cezilia Raposa, (MKA Cheryl Kent)
  • Cedric prefers surprises
  • Loves Marginelia

  • In the event of an award: Please send me a notice to be at court, virtual or otherwise. If the award is a peerage or a once a reign type award, if possible I would prefer to receive the award in person, although a virtual Writ would be more than acceptable.

If a peerage ever gets put in the works, I would rather be titled as a “Peer of the Realm” instead of a Knight/Pelican/Laurel/Master of Defense

  • I have been informed that the Inn of Bard’s Rest wishes to contribute to any peerage plans
