Calontir ILoI dated 2018-06-23

Wesaþ hal!

To Brigida von München, Gold Falcon, and to the esteemed members of the College of Heralds comes this missive from Dorcas Whitecap, Eyas. I seek your wise counsel on the following submissions, to prepare them for registration.

Most of the items on this letter were submitted at Lilies War. As such, with few exceptions, the armory was hand-drawn by a single overworked artist, hunched over a rough picnic table. Any unkind remarks about the quality of the artwork will be interpreted as a promise to come to Lilies next year and do it better yourself.
