Potentate’s Notes October 2020

Greetings Nobles! It does not seem possible, but another month has come and gone.

Potentate’s Note March 2020

Greetings Nobles, It’s that time again for another addition of the Pote’s Notes. We have had an action-packed start to the year, and it seems like there is something constantly going on and always something to do.
