Greetings to the Kingdom of the East from Queen Etheldreda and King Omega!
The generosity of the East Kingdom is without renown. We ask for a bit of that generosity now so we may continue to give small tokens in court to newcomers to our society. This is an important tradition in which newcomers are called into court and given a small token to thank them for their attendance and give them something to remember the event. We have been blessed with many new faces this reign, with each event having no less than 6 new people at Our Courts! This means that our supply of newcomer tokens is running low.
The tokens range from veil pins to small boxes. They are simply meant to say ‘Welcome’ and should not be large, expensive gifts, but rather small mementos of things useful to a new SCAdian.
We also have a lack of Burdened Tyger medallions and Tyger’s Cub medallions. We have a plethora of all other medallions but could use both of these types of medallions. The medallions can be painted, embroidered, carved from leather, or made of metal.
Finally, our toy chest coordinator has already placed a call out for more toys so we can continue to bring joy in court to the smallest members of our populace.
Thank you so much for your generosity! We truly appreciate those who donate time, skills and materials so worthy gentles can continue to be recognized!
In Service to the East,
King Omega and Queen Etheldreda
