By the Barony of Cynnabar on 2015-08-05
Behold, that which you faithful and loyal vassals have long wished for is now brought about.
For as soon as he came to Us, Adler von Metz continued with Us. He showed much respect to the people and governed himself in peace and tranquillity. He confirmed the old laws of Our ancestors and performed very ample service to all persons of merit. In war none was more fierce than he, in peace none more mild, none more pleasing, or in his gifts more magnificent. Let the labor of his hands and his back spread his fame over all the World.
Mindful of the arduous and grueling toil with which he has served Our people, We, Ermenrich and Kasha, Baron and Baroness of Cynnabar, bestow upon Adler von Metz Our Award of the Tower's Foundation.
Let none countermand Our words.
