Greetings Scribes, 
I had some questions about specification for the original 
Gleann Abhann scrolls, in the event any of you would like to 
attempt one.  

If you would like to deliver an original to the Gleann Abhann 
Coronation on Nov. 5th, great, let our ranking nobles know, they 
may want to gift it to the new GA-Crown in court... 
Also, I'd love to have a set of scrolls to present to them 
at Gulf Wars by our scribes.   So, think long term.  

Below are my questions to Gleann Abhann officer, Jennet
and her response - at this point that is the best specifications 
we can get for an original scroll.  
For Gleann Abhann kingdom colors (black/red with white ram), 
check their website: 

I have already hear from 1 scribe interested in doing a scroll for 
Gleann Abhann - any more?  If you are weak on calligraphy, just do 
artwork on scrolls, and the calligraphy can be filled in as needed. 

Since they anticipate using seals, you may want to leave a bit of 
space near the bottom for addition of such later.  Gleann Abhann may
take their cue's on scroll standards from their parent Kingdom, Meridies.   

Cheers, Hillary Greenslade
