From the November Crown Prints

Greetings Caid,

The time has come to say goodbye. Thank you so much for allowing us to be your King and Queen for the last 5 months. During that time we traveled across the length and breadth of this Kingdom, as well as other Kingdoms, and met and interacted with as many Caidans as we could. Your enthusiasm and love, as well as your helpfulness and generosity, made the task a real pleasure. It was truly an honor to be allowed to serve you.

We greatly loved our time on the throne, but now it is time to step aside and let Edric and Faizeh take over. We have no doubt that you will be as kind and loving to them as you were to us.

There are so many people to thank that we can't begin to mention them all: All the Kingdom Officers, Barons and Baronesses and all of their officers who actually run this Kingdom of Ours, Our Court, Her Majesties Guard, and all the autocrats and other helpers at the events that We attended that made it look like we actually knew what we were doing. Special thanks to all the local chroniclers and heralds, whose hard labors make our groups work smoothly. Most importantly, thank you to the Populace of Caid, you are incredible.


  • Sven, Konungr Caid (Soon to be Count Svenula)
  • Kolfinna, Drottning Caid

  • The Sons of the Lorelei war band shall be known as the Sons of the “Thor”elei.
