Your Excellency,

You have called for the skills of a scribe.  Being one who is a newbie, I 
have no experience in ways of the SCA but I am a calligrapher.  And though I 
am a parttime dweller (M-F) in this fair land, if it pleases your I may be 
so bold as to offer my services to the Barony.  If there is someone who 
would kindly guide me in the "to whom, what, when, and where" I can assist 
in doing the "how."  (I am assuming that the work does not need to be done 
using strictly period methods and materials.)

>As for the scrolls for the Champions we need one for each of the following.
>Castellan (over all winner)
>Drighton (armored combat)
>Ensign (rapier combat)
>Baronial Archer (archery)
>Baronial Marksman (thrown weapons)
>Baronial Bard
>Baronial Artisan (A&S)
>Youth Castellan (12-17 yrs)
>Children's Castellan (5-11yrs)
>If you can only do one that would be great. If only two people can do the
>work then that is four scrolls each with one left over, if three people can
>help then that is three scrolls each, the more people who can make handmade
>scrolls the fewer each person has to work on. Maybe you are good at 
>scroll art but not calligraphy, or good at calligraphy but not art...then
>maybe two of you can work together one person doing art the other text. As

>handed out at Castellan then we will be very happy.
>Please if you are able to help with this endeavor please speak up now.
