Today a great surprise arrived me via mail – my PCS scroll from Drachenwald is here!
And though a good part of the envelope didn’t survive the long way from Europe to its final destination here in Kentucky/USA, the scroll was fortunately packed very well. Therefore I am very happy to say that my beautiful PCS scroll reached me unharmed and unbend.
At this point I would like to express my sincere gratitude to King Makarius and his lovely Queen Izabella – Their Royal Majesties of the Kingdom of Drachenwald – for bestowing this “Popular Company of Sojourners” award upon me. This beautiful farewell means a lot to me and I will do my best to do justice to this honor. Thank you very much!
And I would also like to thank the very talented scribe – “Saraswati” – who made this beautiful scroll for me! Thank you very much! I will try to find a frame and place in my home which does your beautiful scroll justice!
This PCS scroll is amazing, isn’t it! …and it reminds me that I should get my scribal stuff out again and make some new scrolls for my new kingdom – the Kingdom of Meridies! 🙂
PS.: Some information for the readers among you who are not familiar with the SCA:
The “Kingdom of Drachenwald” covers all areas with SCA members in Europe, South Africa and the middle East. The “Kingdom of Meridies” covers several states with SCA members in the south of the USA. The kingdoms borders start at the coastline in Florida and end shortly above the southern border of Kentucky – including the part my sweetheart and I live in.
The PCS award – “Popular Company of Sojourners” – is described as following at the Kingdom of Drachenwald website:
“Formerly it was the Principality Company of Sojourners.
Presented at the discretion of the Crown to those members departing the Kingdom, who have contributed to Drachenwald. The members may bear the badge of the company: “Barry wavy argent and azure, two flaunches vert” in whatever manner deemed appropriate to signify membership. They are expected to recall to all and sundry tales the recipient has to tell of the Lands of Drachenwald.”
