The Barony currently has one armigerous service award:
• The Order of the Lion’s Paw of Kenmare
The Order of the Lion’s Paw of Kenmare (more generally called the Kenmare) is an armigerous service award, named for Kendra Kenmare, a woman who served the shire during its developing years, and served as an example of what a member of the group could be, until her death in 1995. This is a polling award.
The tradition has developed in Northkeep that each Baron and Baroness has their own non-armigerous service award that is closed when they step down.
• The Cornerstone – Created by Thorgrim Bjornson and Sigen Fridreksdottir
• The Crimson Star – Created by Ainar Magnusson and Ana Maria de Mercedes de Cerdanya
• The Caisteal Cridhe – Created by Ian Dun Gillan and Kelandra Carmichael
• L’Esprit de la Tour Noire – Created by Facon du Pray and Keigan of Ravensfaire
• The Beacon of Northkeep – Created by Morgan and Montega Blackdragon
• The Merlon – Created by Beorhtlic Folcwinesone and Elisaveta af Isafjord
• The Dunstana – Announced at Castellan 2018, to be given only once per Baronial investiture, to individuals “who serve as an example and inspire those around them to be better than we think we are.”
Northkeep also has two Youth non-armigerous awards.
