For those of you who don't follow me on FaceBook or Google+...

Saturday was Battle on the Bay, which included the investiture of new baronage for Storvik. Janina Krakowska has been working on the second morse for the baronial cloaks and finally got it done. It's right spectacular. I took pictures which you can see at the link below. The "high resolution" pictures are 6000x4000, and some of them are not as sharp as I'd hoped. But if you simply look at the picture of the whole thing, you can probably see far more detail than you expected any way.

Note that there are pictures of the first one for comparison. A lot was learned from that and applied to the second one.

In case you didn't know, a morse is the thingy that holds the cloak closed, as a really fancy clasp. The newer one is about 6x8 inches or so.

Both depict Ragnarr Torwaldsson (first seneschal) and Ysabeau Cameron (first baroness), and make reference to the seven semicolons. There was a coin toss; Ysabeau won and got to be baroness (if I'm remembering the story correctly).
