Unto the populace of Æthelmearc do I, Renata Rouge, send fond greetings!

As has been rumored for some time, the drums of war beat distantly on the horizon as we edge ever closer to summer. In preparation for the oncoming Great Pennsic War, Her Royal Highness Ariella will be in need to favors with which to inspire and thank our beautiful kingdom!

The previous reign’s favor design by Maggie Rue. Keeping it simple  is a good strategy for a successful design! Note the winged heart, part of Her Highness’s badge.

Therefore, She is seeking a design for Her personal favors. In Her previous reign, the Queen’s favor design was based on Her personal badge; this reign, She is seeking a design that could be based on her heraldry, badge or in some way representative of Her reign. The main parameter is that the design be something easily replicated in various mediums (embroidery, paint, etc,) and not overly complex.

If you are interested in participating in this favor competition, please send an outline via electronic submissions to Her Highness email here as well as to myself at email here by March 25. The winning design will be chosen at the Festival Passing of the Ice Dragon in the Barony of the Rhydderich Hael on March 26, 2022. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!
