Greetings to the list! I have been following the 'lack of scroll'
I am a past Star Signet, past Sable Scroll, past Regional Scribe, and
active Stunt Scribe, plus several past heraldic positions previous to
focussing mainly on work dealing with the College of Scribes, sigh...
This situation has occurred at least once in every reign I can
remember,( memory starts with Jonathon and Willow first Ansteorran
Past procedure was an inquiry, starting with the issuing Royalty, the
Royal Scribes later replaced by Sable Scroll in later reigns, the
regional scribe where the event took place. These folk might remember
the award-- sometimes the Royal forgets to tell their scribe(s) to issue
a scroll after the fact, sometimes the scroll doesn't get to the person
after the scroll is later done, and sometimes the scribe gets busy and
puts it off or spaces it until reminded later, sometimes much later.
I know I'm the answer to at least one of the missing scrolls--I'm to
paint a fancier personalized version of the Centurion Scroll for Hersir
Thorgrim, had no idea it didn't make to an award report, so I have the
scroll in my to do pile and will fluff it to the top...sigh
Supporting information can sometimes be gleaned for the herald attending
the Royal at court, or other worthies known to be participants at the
court, or present on the field at the time...
The best solution has generally been to ask the issuing Royal and
jogging his memory, and seeing if the scroll was assigned, and seeing if
it was done, is being done, but get a signature and date on a scroll so
that we can try to make things right.
The end point has always been getting Zodicus what they need to have to
warrant an entry in the OP.
Wish I had a modern day nickel for every time I've participated in some
way or another in this process. I'm sure others mileage can and will
vary. Maybe we need a form? :-)
Hope no one minds my adding to this discussion...
