Current bearer of Thorbjorn's Favor:
On Labor Day Weekend of last year (2013), at the Middle Kingdom Academy of Defense, fencers
were asked to elect a new bearer of Thorbjorn's Favor. The current bearer is Warder Cecil duPont.
Thorbjorn's Favor is a traveling honor, created in remembrance of Master Thorbjorn the Greysides, awarded
once a year to an attendee of the Middle Kingdom Academy of Defense in the Shire of Ravenslake on Labor
Day Weekend. Citizens of the Middle Kingdom and of the kingdoms of Northshield, Ealdormere and Calontir
are eligible. The bearer is chosen each year by a vote of those fencers in attendance. Tie votes are decided
by the previous bearer. The new bearer is asked to wear the favor for one year, to bring it back to the next
MKAOD, and to have his or her name embroidered on the favor before passing it on to the next bearer.
