Order of the Shining Tower

Awarded Armageddon 2018
From the nomination: "For the last two years Squire Miriel has been the key point person on the regrowth of Numenor. Since 2008, Numenor had seen a constantly gradual decline in its new fighter pool. As a result, the average age of our core fighter group inches closer and closer to the late 20s if not 30s. As the age gap increased, it became harder and harder to retain new recruits –older fighters simply wanted to fight hard, go home or hang out with each other. Further, Numenor’s traditional teaching method is based upon self-motivation through adversity (i.e. sink or swim). Times were changing however, and this method became more and more untenable with this generation of potential recruits. Ultimately, it degenerated to the point where the realm was down to a single University based fighter – THE key component to the realms retention of its University practice venues. With that person graduating the following year – the need for new student potential became DIRE. Into that void stepped Squire Miriel. In two seasons, Miriel painfully, but successfully created and implemented a new system of new fighter retention – altering practices and social events to become more inviting to new University fighters. In the face of stiff resistance from many members of the realm, she linked together other knights and squires (Squire Takus, et.al) to encourage the creation of a new newbie unit, the Wolves of the North– and tirelessly worked to make sure that we again became focused on new person growth.The last two years have shown retention which we have not experienced since the early 2000s. Further, she has instilled an esprit decorps with these new fighters that have made them keen on staying and growing the realm themselves. Without her leadership, and the efforts of her and others, Numenor could have indeed “fell beneath the waves”. While I normally would not single out a squire for such an award as this (as I traditionally believe such steps should be taken by a squire in the course of their own training) so great was the realm’s need, and so well did she step in, that I believe she deserves this recognition."

Wolfpack Opener 2016 Banner Contest

Winner, individual category

Here There Be Dragons 2013

"Pahmoten is all about being well rounded. Hospitality is our main goal, but we like to put as equal an effort into fighting, crafting, characterization, service, fairness, and being generally amiable. Starting this year, we began a tradition that I'm calling Dragon, meaning one individual the Pahmoteners observe throughout the event who demonstrates good sportsmanship (or conduct if they're a non-com), garb, characterization, etc. in the spirit of Pahmoten. Pahmoteners, of course, are excluded from this.
The Dragons for 2013 were Ironside of Khador and Böhne of Dunedain."
