[SCA]Kingdom Differences

I asked the Merry Rose today about which kingdom we're doing the Pennsic basket for. This is the response:



> Greetings to the Tavern;

> I am in charge of the Pennsic Gift Baskets this year. The Pennsic
> Gift Baskets are indeed being done differently this year with each
> Kingdom exchanging gifts with only one Kingdom this Pennsic.
> Atlantia has the Kingdom of An Tir this year. An Tir does their

> waiting to find out who the King and Queen of An Tir would be, but

> I am hoping that the talented and generous people of Atlantia would

Being May and not knowing who is going to be Royal at Pennsic seems a little odd so I decided to look up the An Tir website. Coronation will be in July. It LOOKS like Crown will be May 18-19. Okay, that makes more sense (in that Kingdoms are different what do you mean two months as Prince/Princess way). For a while there I couldn't tell when Crown was going to be. So if they want personalized stuff for the Royals then I suggest people keep an eye out for the Crown Results.

Personally I think the idea of a wooden chest is cool - as long as included with the wooden chest is some sort of offer to make sure that the Chest gets shipped to An Tir so that the Royals don't have to worry about it.

Thank you I'd appreciate it. Also if you happen to know anything about the new prince/princess and their tastes it would be appreciated.

I haven't decided if I'm going to participate and I'm tempted to do award tokens if I do anything but I know people who might like to know.

I can ask around. If possible are you looking for things like favorite colors, if I can get a link to their heraldry, etc?

This is one of the significant differences that distinguishes Western Rite and Eastern Rite kingdoms.* Caid, for example, has six weeks between winning Crown Tourney and crowning the Heirs.



*Atenveldt Heresy: The Crown Prince and Princess are fully prepared to take the thrones by force from the outgoing Monarchs. The first coronation in Atenveldt was a little... tense, because Atenveldt was determined to go ahead with the creation of the new kingdom out of the West, even though the BoD at the time had not formally approved it. At least, that is the story as it was told to me by Dennis of the Titans about 20 years ago.
