By the Barony of Cynnabar on 2017-12-16
Honor and public weal are promoted when defenses are secured for the proper establishment of order and peace.
Therefore, know all people, that We, Ermenrich and Kasha, Baron and Baroness of Cynnabar, seeing the malice of the age, in order that We may better defend Ourselves, and Our own, and better preserve them in proper condition, herewith create Midair MacCormaic a Defender of the Tower, and promise in good faith to assist him with aid, with person and goods, within Our lands and without, with might and main, against one and all, who may inflict upon him any violence, molestation or injury, or may plot any evil against his persons or goods, on the condition that in every case he promise to succour Us when necessary, at his own expense, as far as needed in order to withstand the attacks of evil-doers, and to avenge injuries, in such a manner that he shall obey and serve his overlord the King first as behooves him. To this end We have sworn a solemn oath to keep this without guile. Let none countermand Our words.
Adapted from a charter from Uri, Schwyz, and Unterwalden (Switzerland, 1291).
