As the person who started stirring this particular ink pot, I must
say that I have received quite the education in the past week or so,
and I'd like to thank everyone who responded to my initial post!
Things I have learned:
- The college of scribes used to have an internal ranking system of
its own (if you did so many such and such things, you might receive
such and such a rank within the college). This has been done away
with. (And actually, when I asked my original question about the
college, this was what I was really wondering about.)
- Work is being done on a scribes handbook.
- There are plans for an online Ansteorran scribal page.
- Regional scribes are now being required to turn in reports to
Curstaidh, (accountability is a good thing, IMHO).
- There is an SCA-wide scribes list that you may subscribe to at:
Majordomo at castle.org
Additionally, I have received the blessing of the northern regional
scribe to try to put together a northern regional scribal symposium.
In the past, we have held heraldic symposiums with some scribal
classes, but I'd like to see this be a scribal symposium with primary
focus on scribal matters with some heraldic classes as well.
I say "northern regional," but in reality, I would dearly love to get
together scribes and interested people from all over the kingdom. To
my knowledge, we've never had a "scribal symposium" before, so
perhaps this would be of interest to people in other regions as
I will need instructors... if you might be interested in teaching a
class, please let me know!
Also, as Their Majesties' travelling scribe, I will be attending most
of the same events as TRMs. If you have any interest in painting
scrolls, sometimes it helps to see what other people are doing. I
will have scrolls there; please come look at them to see what level
of painting is expected for the awards we hand out; come see what
other people are doing. Feel free to come talk to me about scribal
stuff, nothing would please me more.
I am in service always,
