A Message From the Gift Coordinator

Unto the populace of the East Kingdom do I, Aurelia Alfaiata d’Alcaçova, send greetings, I have the honor to serve as Gift Coordinator for Their Majesties Wilhelm and Vienna, and I humbly come to you today on Their behalf.

The artisans of the East Kingdom are known to be gifted craftspeople and Their Majesties, in Their inestimable wisdom, wish to display the talents of our populace while travelling the glorious lands of our Kingdom and the Known World.

In order to proudly showcase our Artisans, the Kingdom relies on your generosity in filling the Royal Gift Chest with pleasing and useful items.

At the moment, we need assistance with largesse destined for Baronage holding our noble Eastern lands and for those newly arrived in our Society.  In an effort to support Their Majesties in displaying the hospitality and generosity for which the East Kingdom is known, we are also in search of volunteers to help with the gift baskets intended to the Royal Cousins visiting us at Birka, and Royalty welcoming us at the far lands hosting Gulf Wars and Aedult Swim.
