I am pleased to announce that the Roll of Arms of the barony of Ynys Fawr is finally up and functional. I’ve slurped all the data out of the old database and merged it with the information I already had. I believe we now have everybody on there who has ever received an award in Ynys Fawr… but as usual, there are mysteries.

The first mystery is that almost nobody in that database had a baronial award without also having a kingdom or former principality award as well. That seems very odd indeed! I suspect that some information has been lost, but I can’t find it, due to it being lost. I welcome any help that anyone can give.

There’s also the matter of one award given to one person in the barony, even though the award doesn’t exist! I can find no mention of it anywhere, so I suspect it was a one-off “pretend” award. Nothing wrong with that — I’m on record as a big fan of the Royal Order of the Gingernut, one of Lochac’s best and most unofficial awards. But I will be chasing the recipient down to get the full story.

And sadly, we don’t yet have an Order of Precedence, which is the same as a Roll of Arms but arranged by rank rather than name. That’s on my TODO list for a bit later on.

Still, what we do have is pretty good. Don’t forget to recommend people for awards if you feel they’re lacking, and I’m sure they are! Contact the Baron and Baroness to recommend baronial awards, or send a message via Canon Lore to the King and Queen for kingdom awards and peerages.

About Karl Faustus von Aachen

Karl Faustus von Aachen is the sixteenth and youngest son of Eric of Tobar Mhuire, a Scotsman with a talent for heraldry, feast stewarding, writing rude songs and annoying royalty. He skipped town under suspicious circumstances and, owing to substandard navigation, ended up in Lochac. He has followed in his father’s footsteps in every way, especially the royalty-annoying.

Eric TF Bat, real (mundane) name irrelevant, is a geek and father who collects website administratorships the way knights collect head injuries. He lives in the Huon Valley, south of Hobart, and is helping to start a canton from which he hopes to continue annoying royalty well into the new century.
