Kingdom Chirurgeon’s Report
This is my progress report to my fellow guild members chronicling our progress as a guild. This report also will keep you all up to date on what sort of plans the guild has for the future. The first chirurgeon’s meeting of this year was held at Crecy. Many things were discussed. One amoung them was: Are there any group chirurgeons any more? the answer is yes. I will refer to the Trimaris Chirurgeons’s Handbook – a lesser territory may have a chirurgeon sit on it’s officer’s council. This means that a baron or seneschal does not sign that chirurgeon’s warrant. That also means that the chirurgeon’s warrant is independent of the politics of the local unit. The chirurgeon serves the kingdom at large and the chirurgeon on the council may represent other chirurgeons in the area to the council, but does not have any authority over the other chirurgeons in that area because of it. We also held a Crecy a chirurgeon’s collegium which was very well attended. Lady Cassandra, Mistress Atalaya, Lady Ann of Hendon and Lord Shea were instructors. The chirurgeon’s guild has had a very active year and has been present at all kingdom events and almost all local events. Here is a list of some people I want to thank for their services as chirurgeon’s at large:
Lady Cassandra Lord Shea
Lady Rhiannon Lord Brendon
Mistress Atalaya Sarah Lynette
Lady Natasha Lord Rurik
Jhanos Lucien Alexander LeBon
Mistress Anna Alicia Lady Katerine Isabella de Firenze

The Chirurgeon station we had set up at TMT was a rousing success. The esprit de corps and the comraderie that was felt among the guild members was heart-warming. I am looking for people who are willing to work at Pennsic as water bearers and chirurgeons. Islay Elspeth of Glen Meara

Vyctoria clarified that her request for quarterly reports within each officer did not pertain to the Herald, Exchequer, or Sheriff. Vyctorya announced that she has taken three assistants to help with special projects. Lord Loraybech will help with legal matters. Lord Erik of Telemark will book sites for kingdom events and Mistress Adalhaid will be giving classes in administration. Vyctorya also announced that the new Kingdom laws will not be legal until she signs them. We have not had a warranted Seneschal since August 17th.
Lord Rurik started the Sheriff’s report by saying that the gate guard party seems to have been restarted. He hopes that this will help in getting volunteers to stand guard. Rurik mentioned that he still does not know half of his local officers. Vyctorya suggested that he and any other officers having like problems should attend the seneschal’s meeting and talk to them about their local officers.
Lord Klaus von Salzach, the new Historian, reported that the report for last quarter had been turned in by his predecessor Lady Vyctorya. The report stated that the reporting level was high among the local historians.
Lord Guillermo de Perenza, Deputy MOA, reported for absent Lord Guillermo Perez. An arts competition will be held at Sea Raids using Atlantian Rules. Winter Art/Sci will be held by An Crosaire on 1-21, tentatively at Camp Kateri.
Following the Arts report came a discussion on booking campsites. Lady Fara Steinhauser suggested that we book a camp on the weekend of July 4th for Summer Arts/Sci. Rurik volunteered to get information on several camps in the Ocala area. Lord Erik mentioned that getting new camps is a problem in that most camps are absolutely dry. Vyctorya suggested putting down standing deposits on some campsites so that we can rely on getting them when needed. Lady Suranna offered her upcoming Autocrats Handbook to the Kingdom.
Lady Far Steinhauser reported that several candidates are coming up for graduation from the Trimaris Royal University. Scrolls are ready for these gentles and the 13 previous graduates. A sash or token is being considered for TRU grads. Fara said that any class that has been taught at Art/Sci or has an approved outline may be taught by the same teacher locally and be accredited.
Lady Cara Angiola Boccaccio, the new Chancellor of the Exchequer, has received her files from Lord Alfred. Cara answered a question by saying that the Kingdom will not reimburse local groups for options like Armorial and Ordinaries for Heralds. Cara warned that she travels often for her mundane job so that reimbursements will sometimes be delayed for no more than one week.
Lord Lance Nystrom, the Triskele Herald, reported that the new Order of Precedence had been printed at the cost of $15.00 due to it being 62 pages long. Lance would like to serialize the OP in Talewinds or arrange for a special edition to be published. Lance also suggested that kingdom officers be given some warning about the formation of new groups so that we may contact our local counterparts.
Mistress Warjna reported that the Hospitaller’s Office will soon be viable in Trimaris. She is ready to mail out a substantial rough draft of the Newcomers’ Guide. She would like to receive a list of the new members of each group and the interests of these new members os that be starting to get quarterly reports within her office.
Lady Islay’s Chirurgeon report consisted of four parts – First she has been trying to have a Chirurgeon’s pavilion operating 24 hours a day at major events. Second, she has been trying to warrant new chirurgeons. Third, she is concerned with the legalities of handing out over-the-counter medications at events. She will stop this practice until she can consult with experts. Fourth, Islay is concerned with alcohol poisoning cases. It was decided that if a person is in bad shape and is refusing hospitalization, the proper authorities shall be notified. Islay also announced that she will be hosting an adult an infant CPR class at her Orlando home on September 17th & 18th.
Lady Vyctorya announced that Baron Master Talieson will come out of retirement as Sea Panther Herald Extraordinaire to act as a consultant to the Heralds’ Office.
Children’s issues were discussed. It was agreed that the welfare of the child shall be paramount in all cases. The formation of a Ministry of Children headed by Lord Erik of Telemark is being considered. Suggestions were given o provide adult supervision for kids at events. House Hobby-Horse was commended for its work in watching the children. Her Royal Majesty suggested a cooperative babysitting service for evenings at camp. Melgriga suggested setting aside a cabin at events for the children under adult supervision.
It would announced that Peregrine Springs got the bid for Martinmas Moot.
Lord Klaus von Salzach, Kingdom Historian.

Talewinds, Vol.7, no.11, November AS XXIII A letter by Lady Cateline de la Mor
Fair cousin, I write to your this autumn day to tell you of a dolorous event that took place while my lord and I were attending the court of his majesty,King Seosaidh II. His majesty sat in court for upward of an hour, dealing with matters of import to the kingdom and granting awards to many deserving nobles. Alas, as he and his fair and gracious queen Erika withdrew from court, a miscreant disguised in a saffron hood appeared in the rear of the court. Shouting “Death to Seosaidh” this villain let loose an arrow at his majesty, but our valiant queen shielded her lord with her body and took the arrow in her own breast. Seosaidh immediately sent his armed guards after the traitor, commended his wounded consort to the care of his heirs, Solomon and Chelsea, and followed his guards into battle, though completely unarmored. The guards were so swift behind this miscreant that the sounds of battle rang clear from beyond the royal pavilion. (We who waited in court had neither armor nor weapons to defend our King) Alas, while the battle raged, our valiant queen expired of her wound, though diligently attended by their highnesses. Seosaidh came presently back to court, bearing aloft in triumph the traitor’s severed head in its yellow hood. The victory was hollow, we could see, for our king was grievously wounded, bleeding from a dozen wounds at least. When he heard that his beloved queen was dead, Seosaidh, with aspect terrible to behold, did cast down that symbol of his victory and drive his bloody sword clean through it. Then he seemed to weaken (and indeed, hih none dared approach him) and, knowing his death was nigh at hand, gave his crown and that of his fair queen to his son, Solomon, told him to have himself crowned so that the kingdom should yet be united by a single king. The king’s heralds and his court signified their consent by shouting, “The king is dead, long live the king!” And Seosaidh lay himself with his queen and died. Solomon commanded that their bodies be taken and prepared for burial. That same day Solomon fulfilled the wishes of his father and was crowned king of Trimaris. The mighty barons of the land, and great officers and many of the nobles that were present already for King Seosaidh’s court swore fealty to the new king, and so we need not fear the dangers of a kingless land while Solomon sits upon the throne with his queen, Chelsea. This is my record to you of the lamentable death of King Seosaidh and the elevation of his son, Solomon.

Historian’s Report
Greetings unto Their Royal Majesties and the historians of Trimaris are extended from Lord Klaus von Salzach on this 19th day of November, AS XXIII being 1988.
Presented here is the Kingdom Historian’s report for the third quarter of this year. This was complied from the seventeen local reports which I have received thus far. Five officers have not reported and one group was classified as inactive.
All groups reported having at least one meeting per month. The Baronies of An Crosaire and Darkwater each report having one month with five meetings. Fifteen of the seventeen groups had classes or workshops during the quarter. The average was two per month. Four groups had four workshops during July. The favorite subjects were heraldry, fighting, and arts respectively. Mathom Trove and Southkeype each had a total of ten classes or workshops during this quarter. Thirteen groups reported holding fighter practices this quarter. Most groups had at least two per month. Shire Storm held the highest number at eighteen for the quarter.
Only eight groups reported holding demos. Wyvernwood had the most with five for the quarter. Fighting was, of course, the most popular topic, followed by arts and sciences. Dancing was particularly popular. Seven groups reported holding events this quarter. Wyvernwood hosted Coronation, the only Kingdom event, with feast help from Glymmerholde, Southkeype and Oldenfeld. Most groups sent people to only a couple of events this quarter. Most groups were represented at Pennsics and Coronation, with some members going to various area events.
Awards were given to gentles in eight groups. Four groups had members which received new associateships. An Crosaire and Darkwater each received fire reported in five groups during the quarter. Glymmerholde had the most shuffling with five changes. Two of these were due to members taking Kingdom Offices. At the kingdom level there were five new officers appointed. Lady Vyctorya Swansea took over at Kingdom Seneschal. Duchess Branwen bean Erin was made Earl Marshal. Lady Cara Angiola de Boccaccio became Treasurer. Lady Adrienne de la Fere became our Chronicler and Lord Klaus von Salzach became the Historian.
Many of our grops reported interesting activities which I would like to bring to your attention. Oldenfeld helped with Duke Sir Merowald’s SCA-TC at Pennsica and has put on a slide show for its members of highlights from past events attended by its members. Gleann Dubh had a table at a local Science Fiction Convention. Starhaven held a “Pre-Event Pretzel Knot Tying Revel.” Wyvernwood, Narval Dorado, Brineside Moor, and Storm provided entertainment at a medieval feast for a convention of the Buster Brown Corporation. Each group received a $250.00 donation for providing dancers, singers, musicians, fighters and guards. Vaca del Mar sold hot dogs and cotton candy at Coronation to raise money for their group.
Twelve groups gave me interesting and encouraging stories as examples which exemplified the Society’s highest goals and purposes. I took on the difficult task of choosing only some for inclusion here. Here are some of my favorites.
Amyergorod reported that Morgan Bloodaxe gave up his chance at Bardic Circle to babysit Lord Rurik’s child while Rurik had to be elsewhere.
Darkwater reported that Raphael Guilbert Jeanin acted as the “legs” at coronation, for a lady who had received foot surgery, carrrying her anywhere she wanted to go.
Sea March reported that several of its members cleaned the kitchen after Coronation, long after the kitchen crew had left.

Oldenfeld reported that on the way up to Pennsics, Ryujito Tafumi (formerly Rodritch Talgwyth) proved a great asset to the group he was traveling with. He helped with many mechanical problems on the various vehicles.
Southkeype repored that when Rebecca the Goldenhaired had a fire in her apartment, Hafgan (formerly Hagan), Hertha, and Maigh spent the next day clearing debris and salvaging what they could. Elizabeth generously washed Rebecca’s soot covered clothes.
Both sorrow and joy came to Trimaris during this past quarter. On September 26th Nakagawa no Ienobu no kami, known as Noriuji, died of cancer. Lord Ienobu, mka Deb Lansden, was known for giving to both Trimaris and individuals. Her service standing gate guard inspired the Order of the Watchful Flame. The joy that we felt was personified in Angelica, who was born unto then Crown Prince Solomon and Crown Princess Chelsea in August.
Those gentles traveling to the Debatable Lands for the Pennsic War brought honor to Trimaris. Trinculo and Brendan McAngus were both knighted. Unfortunately, the Queen had to return home early, this inspiring our battlecry “Erika!” The Royal Army of Trimaris (Ouch! that’s R.A.T.) proved itself once again in battle by defending the banner of the East Kingdom.
At the last court of TRM Seosaidh and Erika, Daren Goldenhair was knighted and Vasilikee was made Mistress of the Pelican.

Martinmas Tourney
Talewinds, Vol.7, no.10, October AS XXIII On 11-25/27-88 The Shire of Peregrine Springs and friends invite you to Martinmas Tourney at Camp Winona. Come and witness the trial by combat when our victorious new Crown Prince and Consort shall emerge. Partake of delectable feast. There shall be dancing and singing and all sort of merry making. Autocrat, Lord Cedric Steinhauser, Feastcrat, H.L. Aspasia Moonwind and H.L. Loraybeck.
Award of Arms – Sean Owen Mac Grioghair
Minutes of the Kingdom Officers’ Meeting
His Majesty King Solomon and 28 officers, deputies and observers were in attendance.
Vyctorya reported that during the last reign, awards were given to non-members. This issue has gone all the way to the BoD. The Crown an Seneschal will be receiving a ruling on this soon. She announced that any rumors about this be put down. Anything about Coruts of Chivalry should be referred to the Earl Marshal. There is no more to the story than this. Vyctorya announced that there will be an amendment to Kingdom Law concerning the attendance of Great Officers of State at Kingdom events. All Great Officers will be required to attend four kingdom events per year; one Coronation, one Art/Sci, one Crown Tourney, and one other.
Lord Klaus von Salzach made the Hisorian’s report next. He announced that he held a meeting at this event and will soon be warranting his local historians. Klaus plans to write to the registrar about getting a subscription to Talewinds for the Historian’s file.
Lady Cara Angiola de Boccaccio gave the Treasurer’s report next. She reported that she has problems with only four groups. She is now working with local officers to set up books for local groups. Cara said that she would like to set up a budgety for the coming year. She asked for expense estimates (by quarter) from the kingdom officers. Emergency expenses will be provided for.
The Honorable Lord Erik of Telemark gave the Minister of Children’s report. He reported that we are getting about nine children at each kingdom event. He is trying to avoid becoming a day-care service. Erik asked for coloring books or coloring sheets about the SCA (officer duties, heraldry, etc). Vyctorya offered multi-media instructional aids to House Hobbyhorse. Mistress Vasilikee suggested period type activities like storytelling and fairy tales. Erik mentioned that Mikhail donated pillows and blankets.
The Earl Marsha, Duchess Branwen bean Erin gave her report next. She reported that many regulation changes have come down from the BoD. Authorization forms were getting caught up when expiration dates and numbering were started. Her Grace reported that we now have over 250 qualified fighters and 119 who are qualified as archers.
Lady Islay gave the Chirurgeon’s report next. She reported that henceforth chirurgeons will be warranted to go on the field. 75% are mundane medical professionals. Only the warranted chirurgeons (a list of those is to appear in Talewinds) will act in any official capacity. A Chirurgeons Auxillary will be formed. This will be made up of water bearers, errand runners, and crown control people who are either minors or non- certified.
Lord Juan Carlos Perez had a very brief Science report. He only reported that the Science judging will be open to the public at Art/SCi.
Lord Guillermo Perez announced in his Arts report that the Arts competition at Sea Raids will be completely separate from the war. Guillermo also said that many people were not happy with the arts section at Fool’s War. Some are suggesting that the rules be rotated since this is a three kingdom event.
Lady Fara Steinhauser reported next as Chancellor of TRU. She reported that she has worked out the Badge with Baron Master Taliesynne’s help. The graduation scrolls are ready. Fara complained that some of the deans have not been coming to events enough. It was suggested that she get tough with these deans.
Lady Adrienne de la Fere, the Chronicler, reported next. She complained that she had not been getting much material from the kingdom officers. She would like more articles, limited to half of a typeset page. When asked to clarify what should go into Talewinds and what should got into Triskele, Adrienne said that general informative articles should go in Talewinds while detailed how-to-articles should go in the Triskele. H.L. Vyctorya suggested that officers put short reports in Talewinds to save on mailing.
Our Sheriff, Lord Rurik Petrovitch Stoianov gave his report next. Rurik reported that he had a bit of a problem getting gate guards at this event. He also reported that he would like autocrats to set aside a table for lost and found in the feast hall at events.
Lord Lancy Nystrom gave the Herald’s report next. He reported that he has streamlined his office by eliminating the four regional deputies and has taken over the duties of the Sextant Herald himself. Lance would like all heraldic business to go through him. H.L. Vyctorya closed the meeting by announcing that Glymmerholde and the Ruins shall be co-hosting Spring Coronation and Brineside Moor shall be hosting TMT.
