Greetings all!

This is your once-a-reign reminder that there is now a
heraldic/scribal officer called Golden Scroll who is
responsible for filling requests for replacement
charters. A charter is the preprinted, hand-painted
document that is distributed with most Ansteorran
awards, and which most people refer to as “scrolls.”

If you received a grant-level or lower Ansteorran
award, but never got a scroll, you can now request
one. Golden Scroll fills requests for non-armigerous,
AoA-level, and Grant-level Ansteorran awards for which
we currently have charters, including the following:

- Sable Falcon
- Queen's Rapier
- Rising Star
- King's Archer
- Golden Bridle
- AoA
- Compass Rose
- Sable Comet
- Sable Thistle
- Sable Crane
- King's Gauntlet
- Queen's Glove
- Grant of Arms
- Arcus Majoris
- Golden Lance
- White Scarf
- Star of Merit
- Iris of Merit
- Centurion
- Court Barony

Golden Scroll does not fill requests for Peerage,
Royalty, or Lion scrolls (please contact Star Signet
for information about requesting one of these
scrolls). Golden Scroll also cannot currently fill
requests for scrolls for baronial orders, ceremonial
honors (like Queen's Champion, Kingdom Bard, and so
forth), or closed orders.

The intent of the office is to fill requests for
people who never received a scroll with their award or
who lost their scroll due to extraordinary
circumstances, such as a house fire. It is not
appropriate to request a replacement scroll because
you don't like the colors on the scroll you already
received, you spilled a Coke on it, or you've changed
your name.

Other requests will be considered on a case-by-case
basis. If you're not sure, please ask!

To request a charter, just contact me with the
following information:
- Your mundane name, address, phone number, and email
- Your SCA name
- The name of the award, where you received it, the
date you received it, and which Crown gave it to you
- For Thistles, please also specify the art form; for
Comets, please specify the group

You need to provide sufficient proof that you actually
received the award. In most cases, this is an OP
entry. Other types of sufficient proof can include:
- A signed court report
- A report from Zodiacus in the Black Star
- Written confirmation from the Crown who granted the
- Written confirmation from the landed baron or
baroness who presided over the court where the award
was granted

If you can't provide sufficient proof that you
actually received the award that you claim to have, I
can't provide a scroll for you. However, other types
of proof than those listed here might be accepted;
please check with me if you think you can provide an
alternate form of verification.

Most requests can be filled within 4-6 weeks, but
please be aware that some may take longer.

Feel free to contact me with questions, comments, and
scroll requests:
