Introduction at Pelican Elevation

Obedient to Their Majesties’ summons, now comes Sigbiorn Sigmundarson. Marshal, Webwright, Chatelaine, and Social Media officer, prolific event steward, and Captain of the Rapier Contingent of the Guardians of the Golden Grove for a dozen years. But you all know him as the DOG GUY. He has run hound coursing for Great Western War since it arrived on this site, as well as at Potrero, Highland, and Estrella Wars, and he has twice served as Kingdom Houndmaster.

He here presents to Your Majesties the symbol of his craft: The Laws of the Leash, written in the 1560s by Thomas Howard, the Fourth Duke of Norfolk, calligraphed by Astrid skalphæna and illumination by Keinvryd ferch Talan. And in token of his continuing loyalty, he here renders up his personal sword.
