Letter of Intent of Baron Ingvar Erlingsson and
Mistress Aodh Marland (known as Adendra)
Unto their Royal Majesties, Cuan MacDaige and Signy Heri; Their Royal Highnesses, Anton Tremayne and
Luned of Snowden; Their Excellencies, Baron Roibeard MacOscar and Baroness Cecilia Blythe and the fair
populace of the Barony of Hidden Mountain, do Baron Ingvar Erlingsson and Mistress Aodh Marland
(known as Adendra) send the warmest and most heartfelt greetings.
Humbly, we submit this letter of intent to request the honor of being considered the next Baron and Baroness
of the Barony of Hidden Mountain. We do so after much careful consideration of the responsibilities and
obligations of landed Nobility. If we should be selected, our efforts would be to concentrate upon two areas of
importance to the Barony – growth and encouragement in all areas of the SCA including Arts and Sciences,
Service and the Martial Arts such as heavy weapons, Fencing and Archery. Both I and Adendra have been
very active in these areas over the many years. And with the example of the kind and respectful leadership we
have seen throughout the years, we have learned to build on these areas by leading by example.
We wish to serve as Baron and Baroness out of our love for the Barony – our family, the populace has always
been known for its dedicated service; willing charity; open welcome of visitors, old friends, and new members;
and their support of each other and the barony. We, as a barony, play and work as a team, guiding gently,
maintaining the Baronial tradition of fun and welcome, we will continue to foster the feeling of community by
building upon the efforts of past bearers of the Baronial coronets.
Defense of the realm, support of the populace, education of those wishing to learn and encourage the enjoyment
of this our Society; these are the goals for which we will strive if chosen to serve our beloved Atlantia and our
cherished home The Barony of Hidden Mountain.
In service to these glorious lands of Atlantia, the current and future Crowns, and the Society.
