Letter of Intent

Letter of Intent from Baron Andrew and Baronessa Kyna Turnbull 

Unto Their Stellar Majesties Gwen and Lochlan, Queen and King of Ansteorra, Master Modius von
Mergentheim, Ansteorran Kingdom Seneschal, and the Populous of the Barony of Namron, and the
Canton of Skorragardr,do We, Andrew and Kyna send our greetings. We would like to put forth this
letter as our official intent to be considered to continue to be the Baron and Baroness of Namron.
Three and a half years ago Their Majesties entrusted the lands of Namron to our care as Baron and
Baroness. We entered that service humbly, with goals in mind but with the understanding that the Will
of the Baronies people would influence how these goals would be accomplished. Namron was a fount of
possibilities and we have been blessed time and again with seeing these possibilities come to reality.
In our original letter of intent, we focused on three main topics. We would like to go back and look at
these.
Your Canton of Skorragardr to the east of Namron has been a focus for us. We admit that we have not
put as much focus as we would have liked, and we wish to be able to rectify that in the coming months
and years. There is a small, dedicated group of members that have kept Skorragardr growing and
thriving. Recently, the Barony of Namron has purchased a period pavilion for the Canton, with the
previsions that they decorate it within a year. We believe this will help Skorragardr create a feeling of
unity and acceptance, as well as a continued identity of their own. Right now, we are working on the
strength of the groups people, making sure that everyone has a place to feel accepted. We hope to
support Skorragardr in their efforts to expand to the east once again, when they are ready.
Also during our tenure a strong group of people to the South have banded together to try and form an
SCA group of their own. Not only have they held an event with support of the Barony but they made a
HUGE profit in doing so. They have had the full support of the Barony, as well as Andrew and Kyna, not
only as Baron and Baroness, but also as a Centurion of the Sable Star and a Pelican of Ansteorra. They
have the heart, strength, and determination to not fail. We look forward to seeing where that
determination will lead them.
Our second focus was to identify those “fringe members” or groups and to help them find their niche
within the SCA. We have helped many of those members become integral persons within Namron. They
are more active taking offices, autocrating events, and helping out when and wherever they're able. The
SCA is growing daily and with that comes more members that will need guidance and direction. We
hope to be able to continue to welcome these people, showing them that a shiny “pointy hat” is nothing
to be scared of. One of our greatest joys becoming Baron and Baroness has been helping these new
members find their place within this family. Whether we remain as Baron and Baroness or not, this will
not change
Our third goal was to make your Barony more beautiful that she already was. While we have sat as
Baron and Baroness we have gathered every summer for major work days. We, as a Barony, have
painted all our pavilions, repainted those pavilions that needed it, worked on repainting and repairing
the list field, held sewing workshops, helped to make new silk banners, and tried to keep our Barony as
polished as the Crowns that sit upon your brow. We still have so much left to help with. Our next big
project, the Great Wall of Namron, has been entirely spearheaded by one of our newer members,
Kolfina. We are working on painting personal devices and images on walls to help distinguish Namron as
one of the Known World's finest at Gulf Wars, Medieval Fair, and other events where Namron shows up
in force. We, as Baron and Baroness, have merely been helping those in your Barony to beautify not only

the possessions but the people as well. We will continue to help those who ask, weather we hold offices
or not.
Your Majesties, we feel we have made great strides towards accomplishing the goals we set when we
took our first steps on this long and joyous road. We also feel that we have so much more to offer this
great Barony. It is our most sincere hope that you allow is to continue to serve the people of your
Barony of Namron as their Baron and Baroness.
Yours in Service,
Andrew Turnbull
