To Their Majesties Artan VI and Aziza, King and Queen of the Outlands, Conte Giovanni, Outlands Seneschal, the Outlands College of Heralds, and to all others who come by these letters, warm greetings from Lady Marie de Blois, White Stag Principal Herald.

Here is my monthly report to the Crown.

At His Majesty's suggestion, I made heraldic batons for all the kingdom staff heralds who were present at Crown Tournament. I have the supplies in hand to make them for the rest, and will do so over the next few months. I had the honor of heralding opening court for the Crown at Crown Tournament and doing parts of evening court as well.

Quite a few people were interested in the batons, including some baronial officers present. This led to discussion of heraldic batons in period on the outlands-heralds list; I have suggested there that future batons should be plain and white.

I have requested that the kingdom staff heralds seek emergency replacements and suggested that they find other deputies to train. Wharrow Herald reports that he has already found two deputies.

Finances remain in the hands of the Kingdom Exchequer. Castle sends itemized reports to the Exchequer each month on checks received, and Rampart requests payment to Laurel for submissions likewise itemized.

Kingdom staff and branch herald reports will be summarized in my quarterly reports.

serving Crown and heraldry,

Marie de Blois
