Additionally, some letters of intent received may not have been scheduled because the administrative requirements (receipt of the forms packet, receipt of the necessary fees, et cetera) have not yet been met.

REMINDER: Until all administrative requirements are met, the letter may not be scheduled.

From The Sovereigns: KWHSS 2010

As was announced in September at Known World Heraldic and Scribal Symposium in Calontir, Known World Heraldic and Scribal Symposium next year will be in An Tir, in the Shire of Dragon's Mist, June 11-13, 2010, at Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon. Congratulations to the locals and our thanks and sympathies to the staff of Atlantia's bid, for their effort.

From The Sovereigns and Palimpsest: Rules Revisions Discussion

Over the past year, there has been growing sentiment that it is once again time to look at our rules and discuss whether or not the precepts on which we base our decisions need to be altered, since they have not changed substantially in two decades. Additionally, it has been suggested, since so many decisions are based on precedent, that we incorporate large portions of those precedents into the rules.

Palimpsest has prepared points for discussion, which will appear shortly as a rules letter on OSCAR. We would ask that all interested parties make their feelings on our current rules known as part of this discussion.
