Beginner Scribe Information

  • If you are a new scribe, you’ll want to read through the Sylvan Signet Policies and download a copy of the Red Book (the Signet reference guide).
  • To get started, you can work on your own but going to your local (or near by group) scribes meeting is even better. This way, you have people that can help you put together your kit of supplies and answer questions. You can also get your first assignments.
  • There are a lot of experiences, talented scribes in our Kingdom. They teach classes throughout the whole year and our Scribal University at Pennsic is renowned throughout the entire Known World. Many of them are also willing to work with people one on one.
