In accordance with all that is proper, attend and bear witness that we, Kenric and Avelina, Rex and Regina Orientalis have observed with great interest the actions of Ari Finason of Endewearde.
Though a young man still, his courage on the tourney field and his confidence and grace with rapier and sword have foretold the warrior he has become. He is greater still in fairness, generousity of spirit and thoughtfulness to others. Whether lending his strength to the humblest of tasks or rising to the occasion and bringing swift aid to those in need, his kindness and amiablity are a treasure to Our kingdom.
We therefore commend him and welcome him into the Order of Gawain. In witness whereof, before all here present, do We thereby set Our signs manual to make of these letters firm and binding on this 25th day of January A.S. XVLIII at Market Day at Birka in Our Barony of Stonemarche.
