At Their Majesties' command, the HERALD will call forth the recipient(s) of the Throne Favor.

HERALD: In the time of the Principality of An Tir, it was determined that a subject who rendered an outstanding service to An Tir was worthy of reward, and so was established the Throne's Favor. When An Tir became a Kingdom, this tradition was deemed worthy and has continued to this day. Today, Their Majesties wish to recognize a significant contribution to the Kingdom with the Throne’s Favor.

Accordingly, let _______________ come before the Thrones.

When the recipient has come before the Thrones, Their Majesties may declare what service has come to their notice as worthy of reward. And if a scroll has been prepared, they will ask the HERALD to read it.

KING: Let the scroll be read.

HERALD: [First paragraph will differ. If there is no prepared scroll, the Herald should make reference to what Their Majesties have announced as the reason for granting the Throne's Favor to the specific recipient before reading the following text.]
