Dragon Dynast, Kingdom commander, welcoming warriors of Mighty MidRealm;

Gold-friends all, the whale road leads East! to AEthelmark!

Where, laughing, all assemble at the place of Pennsic, that Vale of Valhol, and we will call out

DRACO (invictus)

So claims Ragnvaldr lengthy lineage…

And MidRealm Throne.
