The number 13 is a lucky one in Ealdormere. The Barony of Septentria was founded on May 13, AS 13; House Fettered Fleur was founded on June 13, AS 32; during the reign of Crown Prince and Princess Gunther II and Morgon of the Principality of Ealdormere, which began on Sep 13, AS 32 the final preparations were made for the push to kingdom status; and several Peers of Ealdormere have been elevated on the 13th day of various months. As noted in "Historia Septentriae: Being a History of Septentria":

On the thirteenth day of May, in the thirteenth year of the Society, the northern shires were recognized as a true barony of the Middle Kingdom by King Merowald II and Queen Kirsten II. So thus in our northern lands the number of thirteen is no ill omen but a sign of good fortune.

To celebrate our great kingdom, and the exuberant nature of its inhabitants, the Stronghold of Greyfells is pleased to announce "Making MAYhem: A Historically Adequate A&S Event to be held on MAY 1, 2021.
