Actually, I was just going to ask you to put me into the Maltese. And yes, I guess that makes Leader-3. Just another example of how damned good a Referee I am.

Now, do I have a social secretary yet, or am I leaning on the family retainers while at home? I don't know, right now it looks like you are leaning on the House of Martel staff. However, you are getting your official Elevation and Patent of Arms and Nobility at the Holiday Ball, so you might want to start looking for Staff and think about that Personal Forces unit you as a Peer are expected raise and equip for the Defense of the Realm. I need to get the ball on my shedule and get my Blues out for cleaning and alteration. One must look Tip Top for these occasions. After all, you never know when one will be called in front of HI&RM...That would be at Court, when you take your Oath of Fealty to HI&RM Vladimir II right before the Holiday Honors List Dinner. The HHL Dinner takes place before the Holiday Ball.
A parchment card included in the envelope with Valdemar's Invitation to the Holiday Ball.

Instructions for Presentation to HI&RM Vladimir II, Emperor of the Permatic Worlds: You will be Announced and Presented to His Majesty as Lord Valdemar Martel, of the House of Martel. You will then be Knighted in The Most Ancient and Excellent Order of Maltese, then Elevated to 1st Baronet of Pecias. You will then give your Oath of Fealty to His Majesty (and He will give His Oath in return). After the Oath taking and giving you will be escorted to the Reception Room till all other Citizens and Subjects have been Recognized. After all the others have been Recognized (as per their standing on Holiday Honors List) you all have dinner with HI&RM.

Note: All the Invitations to the Holiday Ball are hand written in a nice calligraphy in blue ink on a beautifully hand crafted, white parchment card in a similar white parchment envelope with purple edging.
EDIT: Founding of the Royal Marines: October 28, 1664. Sounds good to me and Vladimir is big on old school traditions so it should work for Him too.
