Signet Office Announcement – Backlog Scrolls Ready for Release

A message from the Backlog Deputy of the Tyger Clerk of the Signet

Greetings! I’m Æsa feilinn Jossursdottir (known by most as Feilinn), your Backlog Deputy. I have another round of backlog scrolls ready for delivery to their recipients.

The first opportunity to pick up Backlog Scrolls will be at the Coronation of Ôzurr and Fortune in Østgarðr on April 6th. Pick up will take place while their Majesties are sitting in state.

The next opportunity will be at Crown Tournament in Caer Adamant on May 4th. Pick up will be available with me during the day until the fighting pool has been condensed to the final eight combattants.

It is strongly suggested to email the Backlog Deputy (backlog.deputy@eastkingdom.org) to confirm that you will be picking up a scroll. Local landed Barons/Baronesses and Seneschals are encouraged to pick up scrolls on behalf of members in their local groups if they know the recipient and the recipient cannot make these events. More pickups will be organized as the year goes on. If you want to arrange pick up outside of these events, please email the Backlog Deputy to discuss.

The following scrolls have been completed and are awaiting pick up.

*What is a backlog scroll? Sometimes an award is given out at a court and there is no scroll available to give the recipient. This could be due to transportation issues of the scroll or even that the royalty decided to grant a spur of the moment award to a deserving gentle. When this happens, the reign’s heraldic staff records this and sends it to the Signet staff in their court reports. The awards that should have had a scroll generated become backlogs and are assigned out to volunteer scribes to work on in between live assignments.
