Award of the Elephants Heart

Awarded to Gregory the Bald (modernly known as Greg Stucki)

By the Barony of Cynnabar on 2016-08-16

Surge, propera, et veni. Wise Solomon writes
these words, and these are also the words of
Cynnabar, calling Gregory the Bald into the glory
of Our honorable alliance. "Rise up," We say,
"make haste, and come!"

We speak these very important words, with which
We rouse, impel, and attract each of Our number.
We rouse, saying: "Rise up!" We impel, saying:
"Make haste!" We attract, saying: "And come!"
And when We say: "Rise up!", We say, become one
of Us; aspire to magnificent deeds.

And so We say, "Rise up!" to Gregory the Bald, and
We give to him Our Award of the Elephant's Heart.

Baron Ermenrich and Baroness Kasha have
spoken. Let none countermand Our words.
