After email discussion with Sir Cedric about the classification of “Heavy Weapons Combat” and the decision is that it is still in the Higher Risk group. I am sorry to say that full practice WILL NOT be resuming as I had hoped. I’m sorry for the confusion and will continue to work to ensure that partial practices can occur safely and that we can resume full practices as soon as possible. Until then please join us every Thursday for training in German Longsword techniques taught by Sir Edward!
“Until Massachusetts opens up “Higher Risk” sports to “Level 2, 3, or 4 play, we are still on hold here as far as official practices are concerned. Regards, Cedric”
There have been a lot of questions about the email and list services. For everyone who need the information I have places a link to the kingdom FAQ below as well as a reminder on how to set up an officer email address in an email client. For setting up clients on mobile devices please refer to the more comprehensive how-to in the FAQ link below.
Every wonder where you could help the shire but didn’t know where to look? See this page for positions that are open and/or looking for extra help! https://quintavia.eastkingdom.org/shire-officers/help-wanted/
Thank you all for making my time as Seneschal the past four years easy and enjoyable. I continue to be amazed by the number of people who live in the Shire that give their time and energy at the local, kingdom, and society level so we can all enjoy this game. Thank you.
Congratulations and welcome to the job, Andreiko. I know the Shire is in good hands.
I’m sure most of you have hear of Luis stepping down, due to the ongoing criminal investigation. Her Majesty is firmly committed to continuing on and I ask all to give her your love and support through these times and to think twice before posting anything on social media. Being royal is a very hard job even in the best of times. Thank you.
I also wanted to say thank you to our new Kingdom seneschal Mistress Medhbh inghean Uí Cheallaigh. Being seneschal to the kingdom is also a labor of love, please give her all your support.
It continues to amaze me the number of Society and Kingdom officers that reside within Quintavia’ s borders. Thank you all for your service.
The business meeting is today, at the Mosaic Common house at 11 am. (22 Village Ln, Berlin Ma). Officers please send in a report if you or a deputy won’t make it.
Finally have old Garb and/or fabric looking for a new home? See below!
The Worshipful Company Fabric (and Garb) Swap
Where: Camelot Common House
When: October 20th, 10am to 3pm
They say one person’s trash is another one’s treasure. So bring all your ‘what the heck was I thinking when I bought this?’ fabric, trim, sewing and other crafting stuff, and go home with a whole new set of ‘I know just what I want to make with this!’
This is mostly about fabric, trim, and sewing-related stuff, but finished garb (especially kid’s garb) is welcome, as are other crafty, textile-y stuff. UFO’s (“Unfinished Objects”, partially finished projects) are welcome as well.
Novice costumers are welcome to come collect material for experimentation and practice (we want to encourage your fabric addiction!). Those who don’t sew (e.g. normal people) are welcome to come check out the finished garb.
Anything left at 4pm will be offered to gold key, donated to charity, or discarded.

If you haven’t recently done so, take a look around the Shire and see if you notice anyone doing good work that should be written in for awards. Especially search out the quiet ones 🙂
For a quick refresher on writing someone in, take a look at this post from last year. https://quintavia.eastkingdom.org/writing-folks-in-for-awards/
