Herald's Pointe

The purpose of Herald's Pointe is to provide an opportunity for everybody to meet with heralds without many of the distractions present at other events.

This is the return of the gathering of heralds to provide SCA members with the expertise of the College of Heralds to choose a period name and device that do not conflict with others in the SCA or the historical /current Royal families/ persons/ groups/ organizations (i.e. the British Royal Family, Knights Of the Empire, Margaret Thatcher). Instruction is given for the submission process - documentation needed, forms, timeframe, costs. Get your name and device evaluated and paperwork prepared for submission to the SCA College of Heralds. If you pay the fees, submission is also completed for you.

If you are a new herald, want to become a herald or interested in heraldry - here is an opportunity to learn about heraldry in the Middle Kingdom.

There are displays of heraldry and often classes on what to do with your heraldry for the populace while you are waiting or after you have completed registering your heraldry.

Scribal Collegium

The Scribal Collegium is a chance to learn how to illuminate or put those pretty pictures/designs on paper/vellum/parchment for Midrealm award scrolls. There will be assistance in learning the basics of Calligraphy as well. The Scribal Collegium will have instruction for those who wish/need it, and a opportunity for the experienced to learn new skills.

Have you ever been at an event and been totally lost watching the fighters in a tournament? Are you not sure who is fighting? Or even more confusing - can not tell who won the bout?

We would like to train people to be field heralds so this period practice can be used more extensively in the lists by the Middle Kingdom.

To facilitate this training, Herald's Pointe and Scribal Collegium is planing both rapier and heavy fighting tournaments.

In honor of North Wood's 50th Anniversary, Baron Áindle and Baroness Aliyah will be hosting a Heraldic and Scribal Tea.

Classes currently being scheduled from 10am to 3pm

If you would like to teach a class, please contact the HP&SC Classes Coordinator - The Honorable Lady Aine ÓConnail to be added to the schedule.

See you there!
