The Barony of the Osprey and
A great nation must be prepared to provide for a smooth transition of government should (and may God forbid) anything dreadful happen to the rulers, despite our love for them and our fervent wishes that our sovereigns might live and reign forever.
At times, we must prepare for the remotest possibilities. For an instance, our beloved Prince and Princess have only just succeeded to the throne, but what if something awful should befall them? May we never live so long!
Fortunately, there is an app for that. Meridies' Fall Crown List will establish new heirs to the crown, and lawful successors to HRM Wulfstan and Thorkatla, should some unthinkable circumstance befall two beloved sovereigns in the space of a year.
Should we be ready just in case a third benevolent potentate croaks on the throne? Naah, because that would be silly.
So, there will be a tournament to select the strongest, noblest and most able defender of Meridian piety, and the loveliest and most virtuous object of our national affection. Next to the current rulers, of course, may they live forever.
Be there to witness the pageantry, and all the pomp with only half of the circumstance, as the finest combatants in the land thump each other until only one remains.
There will be a Royal Court, as a great nation cannot do great things like this without having a Royal Court for it. In fact, in some circles, it didn't happen at all if it didn't happen in Court, but I digress...
A sumptuous feast will be presented, which promises to be both filling and delicious. The menu will be posted once it is known, and ingredients will be posted at Troll for those with allergies and other dietary foibles.
After a great tourney and a superb feast, what remains to be done? Well, there will be the traditional Red Rose Ball. Dances will be danced, and music will be played, in honor of the newest Princess of Meridies.
Drink will discretely flow, amazing tales will be discretely told, and the bodies of heavenly good fortune will ever revolve around good old Meridies.
