Special Considerations

Whims - HRM Gabriel of Maccuswell

  • The King loves tales of inspiration. Bring him tales of your heroes and their deeds.
  • Diet Pepsi is the nectar of the gods. Monster coffee is a close second.
  • His Majesty does not drink alcohol at all. He would be delighted to find homes for wayward quantities.
  • Bananas, plentiful water, and dried apricots will sustain the King through Ansteorra's legendary summers.
  • Although but a poor student of the fiber arts, the King does enjoy working with linen, wool, and silks. Pleasing colors are the black and gold of our mighty Ansteorra, white, and green.

Whims - HRM Sonja Ryzaja

  • A simple smile can brighten someone's day. Let all of us be a stellar example of how bright we can shine.
  • The depth and breadth of the talent in Ansteorra is second to none. It would warm Her Majesty's heart to see leaders impart a small amount of their knowledge, in respect to their crafts, to any eager, respectful individual so we can all have a chance to contribute to the greatness that is Ansteorra.
  • The beauty of natural fabrics; silks, linens and wools will never be wasted.
  • The colors of vert, sable, and argent (green, black, and silver/white) in any combination are a perfect complement to the power and prestige of or, sable, and gules (gold, black, and red).
  • Her Majesty's eyes are drawn to pretty, shiny, and sparkly pieces of adornment; from Roman to Norse to all things 14th and 15th century. Wear them with pride so Her Majesty can get ideas.
  • Food is a vital part of life, some food can satisfy a craving soul while others can stay with you. Unadorned fruit, like raspberries, strawberries, cherries, mango, blackberries, and blueberries (Fresh or dried) will be happily consumed. Possibly too fast to be witnessed.
  • Her Majesty being driven nuts is a rare occurrence, but Her Majesty eating nuts should happen with much greater frequency. Nuts of choice (all raw and unsalted) are: Macadamia nuts, almonds, cashews, pecans, walnuts and sunflower seeds.
  • Since Her Majesty doesn't drink coffee to get her caffeine, Pepsi made with real sugar is her drink of choice. In lieu of that, Coke Cola and ginger ale are also enjoyed.
  • Any gifts of chocolate (in any form) will be happily given to the entourage and populace as she does not care for the taste of the cocoa.
  • Due to sensitivities, Her Majesty does not consume seafood of any kind. Steak, chicken, pork, and turkey are fine choices for protein.
