Queen Sable's Great Migration Address

This article is a major spoiler for Game of Tomes. The Lore it refers to is scheduled to air on August 1, 2023. If you are a Tome Knight, please do not read it until then. Thank you!
Queen Sable's Great Migration Address was a Royal Address to the Lapin Protectorate, the Woodland Family Alliance, and the world at large. It was written by the Mother of Bunnies herself on May 21, 2023, and first aired publicly on May 22, 2023. In her address, Queen Sable asked for public assistance in helping almost 2 million people to immigrate from the 1337 Speak Reality to the present reality before the 1337 Speak Reality's imminent destruction, and detailed what it was that Tome Knights intended to do to facilitate The Great Migration.


The Queen's address was intended to rally the support and assistance of the general public in the Great Migration.

Document Structure

Publication Status

Queen Sable's Great Migration Address was widely publicized. It originally aired on the OneWorld News Network on May 22, 2023, and was circulated to most major networks in the Protectorates of the Great Houses, the European Protectorate, and most English-speaking countries.   The Address was also circulated to print media syndication services such as the AP, and was printed in entirety in The Guardian, The New York Times, The Vancouver Province, The Globe and Mail, and a variety of other major print publications, as well as the official website of the Lapin Protectorate.

Historical Details


In mid-May in 2023, Seneschal Prinx Tempest Kwake came to their sister, Queen Sable, with a request to bring people over from the 1337 Speak Reality, which was the original "home universe" of their husband, Buddha Kwake, Duke Sacramento. The Prinx had used their unique ability to create portals between realities in their teens to escape a bad situation, and had ended up spending several years in the 1337 Speak Reality, where they were adopted into a foster family. They were aware that the 1337 Speak Reality was soon to be destroyed in a fiery apocalypse, and they wanted to save their family and friends from this fate.   The Mother of Bunnies was immediately supportive, but discovered that it was not just the Prinx's family that wanted out. Apparently there was a prophecy that had predicted this destruction, and approximately a million people believed it and were ready to jump ship to another universe. Queen Sable realized such an operation would require broad-spanning assistance, and she set about laying the groundwork to acquire that assistance.   Most of the other Great Houses were immediately on board, including House Ailurus, House Meles, House Chiroptera and House Sauropoda, but the "Holy Queen of Buns" knew she would need the support of the populace to make this enormous endeavour successful as well. Once plans had firmly solidified, the Lapin Queen composed a public address and gave a speech from the Carrot Throne, asking for the public's help and support.   In the video recording of her speech, Queen Sable held her youngest daughter, Princess Luna, in her lap in her bunny form. Detractors cynically claim that this was a calculated move on the Queen's part to stir public sentiment and garner their sympathy.


While the long-term consequences are still unfolding, Queen Sable's address led to the success of the Great Migration, and nearly two million people from the 1337 Speak Reality are in the process of integrating into their new universe.   An organization known as the 1337 Speak Archive Project has translated Queen Sable's Great Migration Address into 1337 Speak, and has filed 1337 Speak captioned copies of the address in their digital archives.

Public Reaction

The public's reaction to the address, and the Great Migration overall, was enthusiastically supportive. Perhaps spurred, in part, by the dramatic losses from The Third Word War, the public embraced the newcomers, and were willing to go to the effort and make the sacrifices that were required for the endeavour. Popular musical performers composed songs that praised the effort and welcomed the 1337 Speak folk, influencers on the web encouraged public support, and the media covered the event and the efforts made by the general populace and the Literomancers favourably. Whole communities banded together to help the newcomers integrate and celebrated the event with the same sort of enthusiasm that surrounded the 1969 moon landing.   The address, and the effort, were not entirely without detractors, however. Some significant religious and political groups opposed integrating such a large group of "reality interlopers," especially if they were already negatively inclined towards literomancers. Several small countries that were not incorporated into Protectorates closed their borders to the 1337 Speakers. A few politicians in the Lapin, Meles and Sauropoda Protectorates spoke out against the address and the effort and sparked negative social media campaigns. Overall, however, these efforts failed to garner the public support needed to give them any real teeth, and the Migration proceeded as planned.

As if it weren't bad enough that literal witches are running around, now the Mad March Hare wants to bring a million immigrants in-- from another reality, no less! For what purpose? To take more of our jobs and take the food from the mouths of our children? This is the work of the devil, I tell you! How much more obvious can it be that the so-called "Mother of Bunnies" is the Whore of Babylon, heralding the Apocalypse?
— Rev. Zachariah Jones, Evangelist
The Mother of Bunnies has asked us for our assistance, because it is the right thing to do. As Christians, it is our duty extend our hands to help those in need. My family has applied to have some of the 1337 Speak orphans placed with us, and if you can find any love or compassion in your heart, I urge you to do the same. If you're not in a position to adopt a child, then I urge you to do whatever you can. Let us break bread with our fellow children of God and welcome them to our tables. Corinthians 1, verses 3 and 4: "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God."
— From a sermon by Rev. Elsbeth Morgan, Anglican minister
