You may be absolutely right about that.  It is, I believe, Atenveldt 
tradition.  I came to the eastern side of the knowne world from the Glorious 
Outlands(the kingdom whose publication I was listed in).  The honorific title 
is used there, a kingdom that won its crown in secession from Atenveldt.

I don't know, but my promissory scroll, which is beautiful and done by an 
Elvegaster, was written out with a GoA, and the helm and mantle over the 
arms; therefore, what I think you mean as "on the spot" didn't happen.  I do 
know that I was recommended for an AoA.  Cuan took account of my thirteen 
years and three kingdoms and wanted to honor me further, much to my surprise 
and humility.

I was concerned that others might feel slighted, but I should know better 
from this kingdom, by now.  People understood His Grace made up for 
circumstance and complacency in other realms, as he put it, and celebrated 
with me.  

I grinned for two weeks and the corners of my mouth still get a workout now 
and then;)  The best thing from this: I am now empowered to write letters to 
the crown, recommending people in my aquaintance that have earned a bit of 
recognition.  In fact, that's got to be the best part and I know TRMs 
appreciate that kind of help.
