Herald's Pointe

Herald's Pointe provides an opportunity to learn about the various uses of heraldry in the Middle Kingdom. If you are an aspiring herald, want to practice the heraldic arts, or interested in the use of heraldry this is your event!

There will be displays of heraldry and often classes on how to use your heraldry - in addition to the classes on the heraldric arts.

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.

Scribal Collegium

The Scribal Collegium offers classes for aspiring Scribes and those seeking to improve their art. If you want to learn more about the scribal arts within the Midrealm, this event provides opportunities to try different mediums, to learn about layouts, calligraphy, and the Midrealm Award system.
