News from the Baron and Baroness (Sep 2014)

August finally brought us the summer heat for which we had been bracing, yet this does not stop our Barony from feats of awesomeness! August was a month of learning and sharing and we are, as always, amazed at how you rise to whatever the occasion.

We had representatives of the Barony in attendance at Steppes Artisan, Elfsea’s Baronial College (including Her Excellency) and the Scribal Symposium. We had contingents represent us outside of the Kingdom at Battlemoor in the Outlands, Pennsic Wars and the Bardic Collegium. Thank you to all who traveled near and far to represent your Barony and your Kingdom. There were also opportunities to promote the Dream we all love to those who do not yet share in it. We had a good flash mob turn out at Norman’s Midsummer Night’s Faire. We also had an amazing first time demo in conjunction with The Barony of Wiesenfeuer at Choctaw’s Octoberfest! This event was a real winner with representatives from all over the North (more than 80 participants) and solid interest from the many folks who passed through our compound. Look for more stories from this day as is was memorable for all.

With the coming of September we turn our attention to the Fall event season and Protectorate is on the near horizon. Please make sure that if at all possible you get involved with this event. Protectorate is always a big event for the Barony. This year the addition of White Scarf and Centurian circles as well as the Elevation of Centurian Jason Drysdale to the Order of the Chivalry will make Protectorate even more grand. The success of this event hinges on you. It is only epic when you give what you can where you can to the Dream we hold so dear.

Your best bet to get involved is to come to a Populace Meeting, the next of which will be this Thursday, September 4. We look forward to seeing you there.

Remember, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to contact one of us. We are here because of you.

Barone Andrew and Baronessa Kyna

What do our Heraldic Arms look like?

These are visible in the top corners of this page. The one that looks like it has a black tornado on it is the arms of the Barony and the one with the white wings is the arms of our Canton.

Here is an SVG version of our baronial arms (9380 bytes) and one of our  civil ensign (1496 bytes). A full vector version created by Master Finnican is available here. These are graphic files that can be smoothly scaled to any size and most modern browsers can view them. Anyone from Namron can display the civil ensign and it is very distinctive for marking a campsite as belonging to someone from Namron.

Here is an SVG version of the arms of the canton (12589 bytes).

Permission for their use (536424 bytes) has been granted the S.C.A. by their artist.


A schedule of day to day activities can be found in their own section, and other useful information can be found in our newsletters.
