Thorbjorn's Favor: 
This year at MKAOD, fencers will be asked to vote for a new bearer of the favor. 
Voting will go on throughout the day at the list table.
 
Explanation: 
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.
Citizens of the Middle Kingdom and of the kingdoms of Northshield, Ealdormere and Calontir are eligible. 
Those gentles who have already borne the favor (see list below) are not eligible to bear it again.  
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.
