Laurel Sovereign of Arms wins honorary Blackfox for duration and regularity of newsletters

BARONY OF DARKWOOD, THE WEST – This morning, the Society Chronicler’s office announced the longstanding William Blackfox awards for excellence in Society publications. Unusually among the honorees was the Office of the Laurel Sovereign of Arms, or, as they are more commonly known, the heralds. “The Laurel Sovereign has issued a monthly newsletter since 1971, making it the longest continuously running publication in the Society. As this year’s awards cover the period of 2020-2022, we thought it important to acknowledge that someone at the corporate level manages consistency by celebrating the 50th year of publication.”

“We thank them for thinking of us,” said Mistress Regina le Red, the current Laurel Sovereign and chief herald of the society, “but we’re not sure why they’re counting the letters of acceptances and returns as newsletters. We’re not going to argue, though! We certainly try to highlight the newsworthy items of interest in our cover letters each month, but those are only of interest to the Heraldic Cabal.”
