Articles in the Crown Prints by Sven & Kolfinna.
November CP Article
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.
LONG LIVE CAID!

October CP Article
The sad news has gone out, Great Western War has been canceled
this year. Sir Gavin and Baronesse Cara Michelle contacted
53 sites and visited over 33 sites personally, in an effort
to find a new site this year, but were unable to find one
that met our requirements. They have already begun work on
aquiring a site for next year. GWW will live on. We commend
them for their hard work.
On a lighter note, Pennsic War was incredible this year
and we were very happy to have so many Caidans there to enjoy
it with Us. The battles were phenomenal, the shopping fantastic,
and the A&S classes and displays were to die for. Start
planning now for Pennsic next year, which will be a week
earlier in the calendar to accommodate students and teachers.
Special thanks go out to Our Land Agent, Lady Roisin, and
Our Pennsic Largess Coordinator, Mistress Thea, for making
our lives run so smoothly at War.
We may say this over and over, but thank you Caid for being
the best Kingdom in the Known World!

September CP Article
Time flies when you are having fun and it is already time
for us to have Heirs (or as HRM Sven likes to call them "Svittens").
We wish to remind all potential participants that we have
re-instated the requirements to fight in Crown, and a letter
of intent is required if you wish to compete. All of the
details are listed in the August Crown Prints and on the
Caid Royals web site. Crown is a glorious tournament to be
a part of, and if you have never experienced the joy of the
day, We encourage you to enter the tournament as a fighter
or a consort.
As parenthood approaches, it is time for Us to become old
and crotchety, so We have decided to have some Royal Whims.
These are Our Royal Whims to last for the duration of Our
- Sloths are a protected species in Caid and only
Tigers may be allowed to hunt them.
- For Our viewing pleasure,
We would prefer the fighting field to be divided such that
We can watch both Armored Combat
and Rapier from the Royal pavilion.
- The Sons of the Lorelei
war band shall be known as the Sons of the "Thor"elei.
Pizza is a holy meal and those groups who provide it to
His Royal Majesty Sven at their local events shall
- The Knights of the Privy (you know who you
are!) shall always bear an item that emits a sweet and
fresh aromatic scent.
In early September Caid is hosting the Known
World Academy of the Rapier and we hope all of Caid turns out to support
this Society level event in Our Backyard. Come join Us while
we fence, learn and dance.
We can never say this enough, but thank you Caid for being
such a loving, wonderful and supportive Kingdom. You are
truly special and We have enjoyed every minute of Our time

WAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!! Good God, what is it good for?
Absolutely… Oh wait, it’s good for everything!
From shopping to A&S classes to fighting and all the
other stuff in between. This August We will be attending
the largest war in the Known World, Pennsic. We invite all
Caidans who are attending Pennsic to camp with us. Please

not too late to decide to come out, and if you have never
been to Pennsic, you have no idea how absolutely fantastic
an experience this is. We will be allying our forces with
the Midrealm and look forward to many happy days of camaraderie

encouraged to take a look at it before September Crown.

July CP Article
Thank you so much for the support and enthusiasm you showed
us at Our Coronation and for the reception that We received
at Queen's Champion tournament. We would like to thank everyone
who attended, especially all the fighters who competed in
the lists for the honor of becoming a Champion for Her Majesty.
We would also like to extend our gratitude to the Barony
of Lyondemere for putting on such wonderful events for Us.
During our reign, We are going to be traveling throughout
Caid and the known world, visiting old friends and making
new ones. We are especially looking forward to Queen’s
Champion Equestrian and Darkwell War in late July. Come play
June CP Article
Thank you for the enthusiasm and support you showed Us at
Crown Tournament. We plan to travel a great deal during Our
reign and hope to visit all of Caid, including Western Seas.
We also will be journeying to Lilies War and Pennsic War
to showcase the glory of Caid to the rest of the Known World.
Our court will be based during the Viking Era, with particular
focus on our personas in 9th Century Denmark. We encourage
those who have not yet experienced the dark side of early
period clothing to do so in the upcoming months (insert evil
