  • From the Sinking Tower Pursuivant - Heraldry Project
    Our Baronial Pursuivant is working on a heraldry project for the Barony: an Order of Precedence and a listing (with pictures) of everyone's heraldic arms and/or badges.

    The Order of Precedence is a listing of the Baronial and Kingdom awards held by each person in the Barony. The collection of armory and badges will help encourage heraldic displays and provide a "cheat sheet" for scribes who are doing awards for Baronial citizens.

    If you'd like to be included in these lists, please e-mail Mistress Ailis with

    1. Your SCAdian and mundane names
    2. a list of SCA awards you hold
    3. the blazon or other description of your arms/badge. (Or, if your arms/badges have been already passed by the collect of heralds, let her know, and she can look them up.)
