  • Welcome

    Welcome to Scribal Arts! In AEthelmearc we have a tradition of providing an original piece of artwork called a scroll which is presented by the Royals during Royal Courts for award recipients. On average, between 400-500 scrolls are created every calendar year and we are passionate about helping new scribes get started, receive the resources and scribal education needed to grow and develop our current Kingdom scribes, artistically speaking.

    Scribes are an inclusive group of people and we are _everywhere_ in our Sylvan Kingdom of AEthelmearc.

    Take a few minutes, cruise around this webpage and get familiar with what we do. If you are not a scribe, drop us a line and we can help you get started.

    Remember, ~once a scribe, always part of the tribe!

    Two teams, each scribe is required to declare which team they are painting for

    Red Team or the Gold team.

    If a scribe does not wish to declare a team, the Kingdom Signet will select a team to maintain balanced teams.

    For each backlog that is painted, points will be given to the designated team during the 12 weeks of the contest. Kingdom scrolls are worth the following points:

    1 point per scroll – Silver Alce, Silver Buccle, Silver Sycamore, Silver Stirrup

    1 point per scroll – Non Armigerious scrolls as the Cornelian

    The team with the most points at midnight on September 5, 2020 will win a hand cast medallion designed by THL Jasper Longshanks. See illustration!

    On Sunday September 6 and Monday the 7th till 5:00 p.m. votes may be cast for the favorite entry. The Grand prize will be announced on September 7, 8:00 p.m.

    The GRAND prize will go to 1 scribe for the scroll entry with the most votes- every participating scribe will be given 1 vote to use on what they deem as their favorite entry. The Grand prize will be a basket filled with scribal goodies that will grow over the summer with donations. Stay tuned for more information!
