I wanted to remind everyone that on Their Majesties current event
schedule, they have 2 events listed on their progress coming up for
the Midlands (specifically the Northern IL area). Their majesties will
be in Vanished Woods for RUM on Nov. 3rd, and KWAR on Nov 10th.
As award recommendations must be in 28 days prior to the event, the
last day to recommend someone for an award at RUM will be tomorrow.
The final day to recommend someone for an award for the KWAR/ KWCS
will be next Saturday the 13th.
ANYONE can recommend ANYONE for an award.
Awards of the Middle Kingdom can be found here:
(there is also a class on
the Midrealm awards at RUSH)
The Middle Kingdom Order of Precedence can be found here:
The Online award recommendation form can be found here:
For those who have never recommended anyone for an award: ( I am going
to use myself as an example)
1. Its easy & anyone can do it, so breathe :-)
2. Go to the Middle Kingdom Order of Precedence to see what the awards
the person has
*Sometime searching is "interesting", if I try to put in Verena, it
says I don't exist but if I put in verena* it pulls me up....just
follow the directions.
* Here is what the OP says about myself-
3. Now go to the Awards of the Middle Kingdom, to see what award you
want to recommend them for.
*After reading through the awards, we are recommending me for the
Order of the Gaping Wound (yes, I know it's closed and I am not a
4. Then go to the Online award recommendation form ( create an account
if you don't have one), after signing in hit new award.
5. Enter all the information on the form-
*Make sure to fill out as much information in the reason box as
possible. Include dates, examples, links to photos, ext. Be as
detailed as possible, also check your spelling and grammar as Their
Majesties and Their scribes might use some of your wording for the
reason they are giving the award.
6. Don't forget to save the recommendations.
A few additional notes
* Don't tell the person that you put them in for the award
* Don't tell the person that they are getting the award at the event,
even if you recommend someone for an award does not mean they are
going to get it, all awards are at the digression of Their Majesties
* Do look for the people behind the scenes who don't always get the
recognition they deserve
* Don't just recommend friends or people from your own group
* Don't automatically assume someone already has the award, always
check the Order of Precedence (OP)
* Do recommend people, don't think someone else is going to do it.
