Baron Dur, what a wonderful suggestion.
I think that visiting Royalty probably would very much appreciate a
local guide, as was previously mentioned, or someone helping out in
their encampment, to relieve their retainers a bit, (I am thinking of
the far way Kingdoms here, who come with a small contingent to
Pennsic), if I remember correctly a few Pennsic's ago some of the
Aethelmearc Fencers served Drachenwald during a war, Rides to and from
the Airport in Pittsburgh are also a service that could be provided.
Yes there are many things that can be done. It might be nice however
if those services were given to the other Royals early in the war
week, since the baskets usually do not get exchanged until Royal
Dinner, which is rather late in the war week. I am sure however that
Our royalty can come up with some idea how best to pass on these
promises od service. So please if that is what you would like to do,
please let Lady renata know so she can collect "Letters of Service" as
Thank you all for your generosity!
I remain humbled by the generosity of the people of aethelmearc

'tis wonderful that artists offer the fruits of their labors, but not
are skilled and crafty. Perhaps those who would serve on behalf of the
kingdom (a sausage, if you will) may offer a token that could be
for a few hours of service....
They also serve who stand and wait tables...
