Calontir ILoI dated 2017-03-11

Konnichiwa!

To the College of Heralds of the Kingdom of Calontir, and our honored guests, does Saito Takauji jibukyo, Gold Falcon Principal Herald, send greetings.

This represents a special letter, hence my salutation on it. Within you will find new awards Their Royal Majesties are announcing even now at Gulf, new heraldic titles, and older registrations that were for whatever reason mislaid. Please help us by commenting on these quickly, as they will only be under commentary for a few weeks.

For our out of kingdom visitors, the new awards are the Purple Jess, Falcon's Claw, and Purple Feather. The other award names and badges are already in use in the Kingdom, but were not registered previously.

These would not have been possible without the help of: Giovanni Kite and Sofya Habicht, Dorcas Eyas-elect, Konstantia Greek Fire, Shandra Saker, Gotfrid Saker-elect, Hugo von Harlow, and Beatrice Domenici della Compana. Thank you to all of them for their hard work.

Domo Arigatou Gozaimasu!
