I know that, six years ago, I was honored with the Canton of Elvegast's
service award.  It was a blade called Windfriend.  Each year it was passed
on, by the holder, to the next recipient.  At the time I had no idea it was
not offical or that it was taboo.  I was just delighted to get it and even
more delighted to pick the next person to be awarded.  It means something to
get an award from people that see you on good days and bad.
