Awards and Honors

Awards in the Barony of Tarnmist

The lists of holders of awards was last updated: March 23, AS LI (2017).

This page of the West Kingdom web site awards list system is used to explain the various awards that are listed in the West Kingdom Awards List that may be given by The Baron and/or Baroness of Tarnmist.

Descriptions of awards and tokens comes from a variety of sources, including but not limited to: The Laws of the Barony of Tarnmist, the West Kingdom Ceremony Book, an article in the West Kingdom Herald's Handbook on Awards, Baronial websites, or heralds, etc.

The only dates given from Tarnmist have been the year the recognition was given, so I took a stab at using the Court of Love event, alternately showing in Borderwinds and Tarnmist at various dates, as the date for the specific recognition. If you know differently, please send correct dates via the usual channels.
