Principality Regnum

Dearest Summits,

We, Kenric and Dagmar, are humbled by the love you have shown us. We hope to exceed the expectations you have of us and show what it means to be part of this wonderful principality. We have much love and admiration for all of you and feel incredibly lucky to have such wonderful people in our lives. We have never felt more honored. We will strive to be our best selves and bring honor to this fair principality as it rightly deserves.

This weekend was overwhelming. The list was full of mighty warriors and virtuous consorts. Every person fought with the greatest amount of chivalry. This was the most beautiful tourney, both on and off field, we have see in quite a long time. We were both honored to participate in it.

The excitement, love, and joy in the eyes and voices of the people warmed our hearts and we feel privileged to be part of the Summits. This event was very well done, and we would like to thank all those that made it so wonderful.

Prince Antoin and Princess Kathren!

Winter fades into spring and the mighty Gryphons hatch their young.  Summer is upon us and the winds of war flow from the South. It is time for the now matured Gryphons to take flight and their rightful place as the Gaurdians of our sacred lands. So it was before. So it will be again. Time without end. Summits Eternal.
