As we get closer to 12^th Night the question has been asked about how
the changeover will be handled. Baron Erich and Baroness Leisl have
allowed Rose and I to make the decision on this. So we have pondered for
some time, as is our way, and decided that first and foremost that this
changeover should be about all of Darkwood.
Every Baron and Baroness, every Prince and Princess, every King and
Queen can only exist by the will of their populace. Kingdoms do not
exist, Principalities do not exist, Baronies do not exist without their
Darkwood does not exist without you.
So we would like to ask that everyone who wishes to be a part of the
changeover procession to please participate. You will already be in your
12^th Night finery, but we would like to ask you all to bring your
banners. We would also like each group seneschal to carry the banner of
their group and we would like to see the Darkwood Banner carried as
well, though we have a number of thoughts about who best to do so, and
we welcome your thoughts on the choice as well.
We would like to see everyone simply walk up, lining the aisle. Erich
and Leisl can then go up and proceed with the business at hand. We will
follow. Once the changeover is complete the four of us will leave
followed by all of you.
This is the basic picture we would like to see. Simple in ceremony,
colorful and full of the populace of Darkwood.
If you do not have a banner do not despair. It is our intention to try
and arrange a banner making workshop soon (we are working out the
details of scheduling now, but we are targeting the weekend after
Thanksgiving at the moment), and we will let you know how that ends up
playing out. If you have suggestions for other dates please let us know
Also, if you do not have a banner or are unable to get one made in time,
please know that we still want you in the procession. As I have said,
this is to be about all of us together.
We are looking forward to 12^th Night and to seeing all of Darkwood in
Thank you all,
Rose de LaMans
ps If someone could forward this to the St. Davids list I would
appreciate it. I am not yet on that list.
