I n order to encourage elegance and grace in dining among the people of this Kingdom, I, Nicorlynn of Caer Wydyr, hereby establish

The Order of the Portable Feast

to be presented, at the Crown Tournaments, Coronation Festivals, and Twelfth Night Celebrations, to that person who there sets forth the best arrayed table for themselves, their households, or the Kingdom. The tables shall be judged both on the quality of the food and on the style of the setting.

T he holder of the order shall maintain the footed bowl, symbol of this order, and this scroll, which is its statute, and shall affix their name thereto.

T he current holder, at the next event where this award shall be given, shall decide of his or her own opinion who, save themselves, shall be the next recipient of the order, and shall present it to them that day. If they are unable to attend said event, then shall they deliver this scroll and the footed bowl to some trusted person who shall act in their stead.

D one by my hand and first presented at Crown Tournament, 29 May, XI A.S.
