West Kingdom Ceremony Book

NOTE: this page has links for the ceremonies for the Kingdom and each of the three Principalities of the West, as well as some appendices to the ceremonies. See links below.

The Ceremonies are in PDF file format, which is a pretty standard format. Most web browsers have the ability to view PDFs, you can if you wish, download the Acrobat viewer from Adobe if you need to (it may not be required):

You should be able to view and/or print the ceremonies as shown.

Note that these were designed to be photocopied back-to-back, so you will find that there are a lot of pages that say "Hic Nihil Deficit" (Latin for effectively "Nothing to see here", a period version of "This page intentionally left blank") -- this is so each ceremony begins on an odd numbered page.

This is the main Table of Contents for the Ceremony Book ...

The Kingdom Heralds do not keep track of Baronial Ceremonies, however, Mistress Na'arah bat Avraham has chosen to take this task on. As the Heralds' website has plenty of storage space, we are hosting these ceremonies. The link below is for the Baronial Ceremony Books for each active Barony in the West Kingdom:
