In the Kingdom of the West, Snorri Elfbane received this letter and within a year after passing it on he became a triple peer, even though he doesn't actually fight or do arts or service or much of anything else. In fact, he can usually be found at events seated in a lawn chair swilling Budweiser in front of a wall of blue plastic totes while his ill-mannered children run amok. Master William Whatshisface on the other hand, an exemplar of scholarship and chivalry, threw this letter away and was given a 3rd-level banishment shortly thereafter.

In Ansteorra, Lord Harald Ratbiter received this letter and put it aside. His article for his branch newsletter was rejected. He later found the letter and passed it on, and his article was published that year in Tournaments Illuminated.

In Ealdormere, HL John the Dead got that way by passing on his chance to take part in this worthy enterprise. And in the Midrealm, Mistress Ysabell the Flatulant failed to pass on the letter, and was seriously injured in a bizarre culinary accident involving a clay oven, a turnip and a trebuchet. This could happen to you if you break the chain of citations.
