No news on GP (being decided)
Shielded Harbor's submissions were rejected. Tawny is looking into this.
Lord Otto’s name/device are in process.
Grimr's, Abe's, and Phenix's names in process (GP).
Phenix's device: need to get permission to conflict taken care of. Abe will do this.
Tawny (WG): need to talk to Baron Rothri and Kingdom about the status of this. Update: Kingdom Exchequer will respond when she returns from Pennsic.
Klement (GP): has “official word” that he is Exchequer, but paper warrant will be coming along.
The latest update from Kingdom (copied to the B&B) is that we don't have passwords yet, but Kingdom can put any code up if we want them to. but we don’t quite have anything ready yet. Njall is at Pennsic and we will jump on this once he’s back.
