Baronial Polling2

Baronial Polling Information

To those of you who would think to ascend to the Baronage of Shattered Crystal, I beg you to fully consider this undertaking.  It is a joy – but there are trials too.  It’s a lot like being HR at a large corporation with many departments and varying goals and personalities. I would offer you my counsel as you seek to undertake this endeavor. And so, I ask that any who wish to submit a Letter of Intent, also contact me.  I would like to schedule an opportunity to have a transparent discussion with each individual or pair who would succeed me. If anyone has general questions, please reach out to me directly and I shall be happy to share what I have learned.

Veritas, 

Baronessa Petrona
