Baronial and Kingdom Recommendations

Unto the populace of the Cleftlands do we, Crispin and Gianna, Baron and Baroness of the Cleftlands, send greetings.

With a Regular Event in the Cleftlands on the horizon this January 27th, we wished to take a moment to encourage reflection on the good works done by members of the society and to encourage writing award recommendations for either baronial or kingdom awards.

The Barony of the Cleftlands has three service-oriented awards to choose from: Saint Alfred, Saint Clairiel, and the Azure Chalice. To submit a recommendation for a baronial award, we encourage you to fill out our new form online, contact us via email, or speak to us in person.

The Middle Kingdom has a veritable cornucopia of awards to choose from. Award recommendations may be submitted by any person for any good gentle online via the Middle Kingdom Order of Precedence. If you do not already have an account, you can create one. Once logged in, to submit a request simply click on New Recommendation. The fields required for a submission are: the award recipient’s name, the award or honor, the event(s) they may be attending in the future, and the reason for your recommendation. While it doesn’t have to be an essay, be thorough in your support.

Here are a few examples from the web interface:

If you would like to check if your intended award recipient has received the honor, you may check the Cleftlands Wiki or the Middle Kingdom Order of Precedence. (We have heard our webminister and the wiki staff regularly cross check the OP and update the Wiki, but no one is perfect. 😉 )

We look forward to hearing from you!

In service,

Baron Crispin and Baroness Gianna
