Coronet July, XXXI (1996)
Having traveled the wilds of Oertha to Earngyld last month, I bring you news of coronet . Lord Gregor Hawke once again won the tourney, defeating Gentle Ferris of Red Oaks in the finals (who fought for Deedra the Naughty), inspired by our very own Baroness Alicianne de Montfort of Sprucewood. The tourney was well fought, very chivalrous, and enjoyable to all. Chandra, Prince of Mists, was in attendance, and gave yours truly one of his hand-crafted boxes to carry my circlet in, which came as quite a surprise at Saturday morning court As usual, the hospitality of the hosting Earngylders was exemplary, and I would recommend visiting them to anyone. -Morgana yr Oerfa

Coronet List in Earngyld Seven fighters vied for the Coronets of Oertha. I'm told they were Francis Bull of Kent, Alicianne de Montfort of Sprucewood, Thomas Bloodworth, Sir Richenza von Hugh, Gregor Hawke, Martin Thursthammer and Ferris of Red Oaks. Gregor Hawke emerged victorious fighting for Alicianne, with Ferris becoming Lord Guardian and Princess's champion fighting for his lady, Deedra. -Khevron Oktavii Tikhikovich Vorotnikov
