Words by Lord Brochfael the Anglespurian

A kingdom is defined by the those who make up its populace. Those who would stand with Us as officers and bear Our voice in court are prized by Us. Those who would serve Our kingdom, gathering us together at events and impart their knowledge to us in colloquium are dear to Us. Those who would teach our treasured children and inspire them to great things are cherished by Us. When one of our populace displays all these qualities and more she does honor to our children, our people and our Crown. Thus do we, King Gregor and Queen Kiena, find it fitting and well to elevate our devoted servant and Chancellor Minor, Lady Aislinn Chiabach, to our Order of the Silver Crescent, done by our hands this Nineteenth of November, Anno Societatis XLVI, at Our Hundred Minutes War in the Shire of Rusted Woodlands.
