"In the Beginning, the 'Ideal' for Adria, as conceived and set forth by the Founders, was that in the chaotic world of our mundane lives, much like the chaotic times in medieval history, we could create and uphold a society where individuals from all walks of life, no matter what rank or title, all have the same opportunities and were all expected to uphold the same chivalric ideals.
'The Ideal' was simply exemplifying the best qualities of medieval history and applying them, not only within Adria but within each of ourselves and in thus, making our mundane lives a better place to exist.
Self-indulgence and oppressiveness were to be prohibited.
Fellowship, compassion, and a need to keep matters simple and to the point were to be embodied by the populace.
As founders, our future 'Dream' for Adria was that each member would hold a true and honest love for Adria so as to nurture and help her grow into a shining example of what a Noble Society could have been in the past and perhaps should be today and also in the future."
- Sir Antoine de Burgandy, co-Founder of The Adrian Empire.
On a personal note:
There are some of us who sign our missives "In Service to the Dream" many of us are what I would call Knights of the Old Guard. You see more knights sign "In Service to the Empire" now than those who sign "In Service to the Dream" and I think this is where our problems lay.
If more knights of the realm served the Dream rather than the Empire then the Empire would be better served. But often what we see is that more knights are serving the Empire than the Dream and that the Dream itself has been suffering.
The Dream is no longer served or protected .. and this is a problem that we have.
I once penned an Accord that I sought sponsors for ... It was called The Accords of St. Rita of Cascia. Look up who St. Rita is ... and you will begin to see the humor in the name of the order.
I will post info about the Accords in separate missive.
In Service to the Dream (As Always)
