I think that the order that the work is done varies from person to
person, at least that his what I have observed when talking to other
scribes. There is no set way to do a piece. My calligraphy, such as it is,
is my weakest trait, so I do that first. It is the thing that I am most
likely to make mistakes on. But someone who is sure of their callig but not
so much of their drawing/painting skills might go another route.
> SCA wording and heraldry should take precedence over documentation.
That is arguable (and I'm sure Master Tadgh is not in agreement at
all), although I do agree that the award should be represented on the
I received my AoA in another kingdom and it was completely original
on watercolor paper with no documentation. It is of much finer quality then
anything I saw while living in Ansteorra.
Than I am sorry that you did not see more in your breif stay in our Kingdom.
I have seen a lot of scrolls from differnt kingdoms, and I feel that, on
average, our system ends up with a prettier product.

Again, I have to point out that this kingdom has been known to give out more
awards than most other kingdoms, regardless of their size. Also, again, I
must point out that in many cases the scribes in other kingdoms sit in a
doing callig/illum the entire event. I dont' think that is fair to ask of
May I ask where you are from?
