[MID] Middle Kingdom's Herald's Pointe and Scribal Collegium

The Herald's Pointe is to provide an opportunity to meet with heralds without the distractions of other events. No need to rush between tournament bouts, etc. - just the heralds and you.

This is an annual 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 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.

The Scribal Collegium is a chance to learn how to illuminate or put those pretty pictures/designs on paper. 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 produce illuminated scrolls for gifting to Kingdom for awards.
