On Saturday September 8th, AS LIII, Their Majesties Baselius Brennan and Basilissa Caoilfhionn did visit their Barony of of Settmour Swamp to hold their annual Ducal Challenge. In the morning before the tourney, Their Majesties did call in the following individuals and send them on vigil: Anastasia da Monte for Defense, Arne Ulrichsson for Chivalry, and Ellesbeth Donofrey for the Pelican.

Many combattants entered the challenge set for by Their Majesties, and all went home with a new piece of art, having been created as the entry fee by combattants or sponsors.

In the afternoon, Their court was reopened. Their Majesties announced an Exile from the Realm. Additionally, many newcomers to the Society received tokens, the toybox was run by Duke Hans of the Kingdom of the West, and everyone in attendance sang Happy Birthday to celebrate His Majesty’s birthday.

The following gentles were awarded as follows:
