Award of the Elephants Heart

Awarded to Pan Zygmunt Nadratowski (modernly known as Tom Nadratowski)

By the Barony of Cynnabar on 2017-01-03

The tales tell the deeds of the gods: They tell of Themis’ just scales;
They tell how willing was bold Mars to arm for war.
No disease, no cold, no savage opponent, no fear of death
Could impede the completion of their mighty works.

So may it be with the labors of Zygmunt Nadratowski,
Who studies not only war, but equally the law.
Certainly the greatest leader is he who values justice,
And who labors to serve his people with his sword.

As a sign of Our esteem do We, Ermenrich and Kasha,
Give unto Our servant, Zygmunt Nadratowski,
Our Award of the Elephant's Heart and with it Our favor.
Let the people hear it. Let none countermand Our words.
