We would like to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who has made us feel welcomed — from the northern shores of Tir Mara to the southern reaches of Carillion.  The outpouring of support has been breathtaking.

Your welcome to us is a precious gift, as the East would not be the vibrant seat of chivalry, learning, service and courtesy that it is without the contributions of everyone from Their Most Royal Majesties to the good gentles attending their first event.  For this reason, We count the opportunity to meet so many of you among the greatest privileges of our office.  Please, join us wherever we may be, bring your friends and introduce yourself to Us.

It is this courtesy which breathes life into our shared dream of the modern middle ages.  And thus we are very committed to the idea that courtesy to every good gentle, in every time and place, by gestures large and small, is the foundation of our Society and most dear to us.  Then as a personal favor to Us, we ask each of you to welcome someone new to our kingdom, thank an event volunteer, extend a hand to a new friend, and demonstrate the best aspects of this Society.

We invite you to get involved in the many joys of our Society.  Contact our volunteer coordinator through this website, or more importantly, you can volunteer in your local Crown Province, Barony, Shire or Canton. Many hands make light work, and your participation is what shapes the character of this Kingdom.

In service to the East
and the Society,

Edward and Thyra,
King and Queen of the East
