A Holiday Message from ETT

Your correspondent is talking Christmas off. Though not a believer I am happy to take advantage of Jesus’ birthday to slack off celebrate Independence Day properly. Normal service will resume on Monday 28th December 2015.

Now of course nothing momentous has ever happened in Talossan history over Christmas, so let’s keep it that way in my absence. It’d be ufair for Berich’t to have all the fun 😉

Update on Independence Day Honours, 2012/XXXIV

College of Arms
From and for The Royal Talossan College of Arms

At the express command of His Majesty the King, the Squirrel King of Arms hereby revokes those portions of the grant of arms issued by the Crown on 26 December 2012 purporting to grant arms to “Barbrà da Carolin”, “Moritz d’Ialüm”, and “Róibeard Sadart”. The post detailing this grant of arms has been modified accordingly.

The College apologises to the Crown and the nation for having been used in the perpetration of a fraud. Further, the College specifically apologises to armigers Moritz Fernaodescu and Txosuè Pologn that their grant of arms was sullied by the taint of this fraud.

Done under my hand, as from the Royal Talossan College of Arms, on this, the 27th day of January in the year 2013, the 34th year of the independence of Talossa and the 6th of the reign of our Sovereign JOHN.
