“Greetings Scribes,

As you assuredly all know we were very hard on the supply of blank scrolls we had on hand over the last reign. We are getting quite low on blanks suitable for AoAs, and completely out of blanks for higher level awards. it would be especially great to have some blanks that are appropriate for Orders of High Merit such as the Maunche or Silver Crescent.

Therefore I am proposing a contest. I am going to put up a set of prizes including: a book of gold leaf (25 sheets), 10 (or 12) leaves of pergmegnata, a pad of Bristol smooth paper, and an assortment of tubes of gaouche. I am also willing to accept prizes if anyone has something they want to donate. The more the prizes the more the fun.

To win a prize all you have to do is get a blank to me by Birka. For every blank I will enter your name into a random drawing for the prizes. If you get me 4 blanks, you will get entered 4 times. After all the names are in the hat, I will get a random passerby to draw a name for each prize.

I will draw the winners at Birka. I haven’t totally decided when yet, but it will probably be at the end of the scroll display, before court. You do not have to be there to win. I will get the prize to you.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you (to) all (of the scribes) for the long hours you put in and great artwork you put out.
