Artemisia Order of the Golden Gryphon’s Talon Wording

In the high and wild places of Artemisia dwells the mighty Gryphon, totem beast of these Laurel Lands. Valiant is its heart and with wondrous weaponry is it endowed. The Order of the Golden Gryphon's Talon was created to recognize those of Our warriors whose skill at arms rivals that of this marvelous beast. Foemen blanch to see the stalwarts of this Order arrayed against them in battle. By these presents one is now called to enter this august Order, for We, <King> and <Queen>, King and Queen of Artemisia, seek to honor the worthy <name>. With weapon in hand, (he/she) is mighty, and through (his/her) teaching passes this marvelous skill to others. Let all praise (his/her) excellence, let all strive to emulate (his/her) expertise, and let none among the people of all lands dare contest Our will in this matter, for these things are well and justly done by Our hands this ___ day of ___, Anno Societatis ___, being the year two thousand in the
Common Era.

Rex Artemisius Regina

To all unto whom these presents do come, be it known that <name>, having given demonstration of skill and knowledge in the art of chivalrous combat, does deserve Our notice. Therefore We, <King> and <Queen>, King and Queen of Artemisia, do admit (him/her) to the right noble Order of the Golden Gryphon's Talon. Done this ___ day of ___, Anno Societatis ___, being the year two thousand Gregorian, at <event> in Our <S.C.A. group>.
