Baron Harald von Auerbach and Haus Aberhorn presented their tithes to the Baron and Baronessa, as part of the highway taxes they have collected.
Ivan Sergayavich Shurbarsedy called his lady, Mylet Shurbatskya, into court to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary and to profess his love before the assemblage.
Baron Harald also wanted the record to show that at the last tax court, the Scribes Guild was made Keepers of the Monkey’s Canines (teeth), not Keepers of Canine Monkeys, as the Wheel of Titles was misinterpreted.
Their Excellencies called into court Brendan the Harper, now known as Merlin, and his lady wife, to thank them for starting Harper’s Retreat some 25 years ago.
