The Portland Phoenix covered the Great Northeastern War. The article can be found here.
This announcement is meant to give artisans advanced knowledge of the format so they can plan their work accordingly. However, please note that this announcement is incomplete, and a more complete announcement, along with details about preregistration, will be constructed once the event date and site are chosen. If you have questions, please e-mail Lissa.
-Mistress Elysabeth Underhill (Lissa), Queens Champion
-Master Magnus Hvalmagi, Kings Champion
Entrants may enter 1- 3 items into the competition, but the championship will be judged as a body of work. Individual entries will not be scored. No item should have won a previous King’s or Queen’s Championship, and each item to be judged should have been made within three years of the competition. The items can be from a single discipline or from multiple disciplines, however, entries which tell a coherent story about a people, time and place are encouraged. The winner of the competition is the Queen’s Champion of Arts and Science. The King determines the King’s Champion of Arts and Science.
The judging will be conducted face-to-face using a judging rubric which will be made publicly available before the competition (and one that is similar to the rubric that has been used for the past two years and is available on the kingdom arts and sciences website). Entrants will have the opportunity to stand by their table and judges will be asked to talk to entrants before reading their documentation. Thus entrants should prepare a brief overview presentation about their project to be delivered to both judges and interested event attendees. Absentee entries will not be accepted. Judging will be done as a single team, drawing from various areas of expertise. The top entries will then be announced and then a second round of face-to-face judging will occur with the King and Queen present.
Documentation is required to compete in the King and Queen’s Arts and Sciences Championship. Entrants are encouraged to use the judging rubric (which will be updated shortly) to help them determine what information to include in their documentation. However, due to the large number of entrants this competition typically receives, the length of the documentation provided must be limited to allow time for judging. Entrants are asked to compose a 1/2 to 1 page abstract or summary which provides an overview of their entire entry (their body of work). The primary documentation for the entire entry should be no longer than 6 pages, not including references. Entrants are encouraged to include a table of contents and section headings to make reading the documentation easier for the judges, and judges will be asked to read both the summary and primary documentation in full. Appendixes may be used to convey supplemental information, things such as images, tables, charts, excerpts from historic texts, detailed descriptions of processes undertaken, etc. Judges may look at these appendixes if they desire, and entrants can refer judges to information in their appendixes during their presentation. However, entrants should plan to include all information that is critical to an understanding of their project in their primary documentation.
Documentation is not easy to write! If an entrant desires help with writing their documentation, or wants feedback on documentation already written, please e-mail the current queen’s champion, Mistress Elysabeth Underhill (Lissa) at Lissa, no later than 3 weeks before the competition date, and she will try to find a volunteer to assist you. If you are interested in assisting with providing documentation feedback to entrants prior to the competition, please e-mail Lissa as well.
Unto the populace of the East Kingdom, greetings,

In service to the East,

Attention, Talented Artisans of the Society for Creative Anachronism
In the Society for Creative Anachronism, we are a collective of volunteers, each serving in their own way at one point or another so that all may have a chance to play, enjoy, learn and have fun. It is on this mantra that the SCA has gone on for 50 years now, and shall continue to do so.
As we Celebrate 50 Years of the Society, many of our SCA family will be considering attending the SCA 50 Year Celebration Event, June 17th through the 27th of this year and many of them will be giving their time and service to the event, staffing the Gate, serving on the Watch, Marshalling the Lists.
We wish to show appreciation to the Volunteers who give of themselves, from the newest member giving their first hour of service to the Multi-Peer who serves alongside that newest member. The Society works because our Volunteers continue to turn the wheels and drive us forward to fun, adventure, knowledge and my personal favorites, Family and Friendship.
Everyone who volunteers on site during the event will receive a ticket for each hour they serve. These tickets can be dropped into boxes that will labeled with the items you’ve donated: items that our volunteers would proudly use or displayed long after the event is over.
And Artisans, this is where you are most needed. We come seeking donations from the Amazingly Talented populace of the Known World: we are asking you to please consider donating handmade items that people would Buy/Trade/Commission for themselves.
No matter your rank, Laurel or student; professional craftsperson or astonishingly talented amateur: we’re asking all of you to help us recognize the volunteers in service to the Society’s 50th Year Celebration. Please, put forth your beautiful work to be a cherished gift for a Volunteer.
If you’re considering a specialized item (something that must be custom sized or fit, for instance) or you aren’t sure how to submit it to the cause, please contact my Coordinator, THL Justice McArtain, at email@example.com
All donations can be mailed to His Lordship Justice ahead of the Event or delivered at the SCA 50 Year Celebration Event if you are attending.

On a soggy Thursday afternoon, Caoilfhionn Banri opened her court at the Gulf Wars in the Kingdom of Gleann Abhann. She called before her Millicent Rowan and Gregor Mac Eoain and inducted each into the Order of the Silver Rapier. She further awarded Gregor Mac Eoain Arms and made him a Lord of the Eastern Court. Court was then suspended.
That night, the winds did howl, the rain poured down, and the East gathered in the Royal cabins to wait out the severe weather. When it was calm again, the populace poured out to survey the damage. The mighty Eastern force, helped right blown over tents, clear storm damage, offered hot food and beverage to those who no longer had any.
On a damp and gray Friday morning, Caoilfhionn reopened her court. She spoke of pride in her forces both on and off the battlefield. She spoke of bravery and comportment on the list shown by the fighters who fought at her side and in her name.
She called before her Sorcha Dhocair and inducted her into Order of Valor of the East.
She then began to speak of the generosity of her Eastern Force. She saw people come together to help friends, neighbors and strangers pick up the pieces left by the severe storm. She remarked upon how food and beverage magically showed up into the royal cabin to feed everyone who had taken up refuge there. She spoke with pride on how a little wind could not stop the East. And with that, she inducted the Eastern force into the Company of the Pennon of the East.

Eastern Results on the January 2016 LoAR
The Society College of Heralds runs on monthly cycles and letters. Each month, the College processes name and armory submissions from all of the Kingdoms. Final decisions on submissions are made at the monthly meetings of the Pelican Queen of Arms (names) and the Wreath Queen of Arms (armory). Pelican and Wreath then write up their decisions in a Letter of Acceptances and Return (LoAR). After review and proofreading, LoARs generally are released two months after the meeting where the decisions are made.
An “acceptance” indicates that the item(s) listed are now registered with the Society. A “return” indicates that the item is returned to the submitter for additional work. Most items are registered without comments. Sometimes, the LoAR will address specific issues about the name or armory or will praise the submitter/herald on putting together a very nice historically accurate item.
The following results are from the January 2016 Wreath and Pelican meetings; these items were submitted to the East Kingdom at Pennsic 2015.
Aildreda de Tamworthe. Badge. (Fieldless) An estoile azure.
Andrea Caitlin MacIntire. Device. Per chevron azure and gules, a chevron rompu between two quatrefoils pierced and a fireball argent.
Ástríðr Elfvensdottir. Badge. (Fieldless) A hedgehog rampant Or maintaining a needle sable.
Aveline d’Amiens. Name and device. Per fess embattled argent and azure, in chief three rats rampant sable.
Both elements are found in Paris in 1292, making this an excellent late 13th century French name!
Conall Ó Suibhne. Device change. Or, a wolfhound statant between three trefoils vert.
The submitter’s old device, Per bend embattled argent and vert, two talbots passant contourny counterchanged, is released.
Eckhart Wurm. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Both elements are found in Nürnberg in 1497, making this an excellent late 15th century German name!
This name does not conflict with the registered name Eckehard Thurn. The byname is substantially different in sound and appearance under PN3C3 of SENA.
Edwarde Midnight. Name and device. Per bend sinister gules and argent, a tower Or and a four-leaved clover slipped vert.
Eirný Bergsdóttir. Name and device. Per bend purpure and argent, a beorc rune and a mountain counterchanged.
Elaine Howys of Morningthorpe. Name reconsideration from Eliane Howys of Morningthorpe and device. Or, a chevron sable platy between three jerkins gules, a chief sable platy.
The submitter requested authenticity for an unspecified place and time. This name is authentic for 16th century England.
Elaine Howys of Morningthorpe. Badge. (Fieldless) A jerkin per pale gules and Or.
Elizabeth Vynehorn. Badge. Argent, a quatrefoil per bend gules and azure.
Eva von Kölln. Name (see RETURNS for device).
Submitted as Eva von Köln, the submitter requested authenticity for a 15th century German name. Eva is documented in multiple German cities in a 1495 tax roll, and Köln is found in an unmarked locative byname in Germany dated to 1636. The form von Kölln (possibly von Kolln) is found in a charter dated to 1470 (http://monasterium.net/mom/ArdCan/1470_VI_07/charter?q=%22von%20K%C3%B6lln%22). We have changed the byname to von Kölln to meet the submitter’s request for a 15th century name.
Francesco Gaetano Greco d’Edessa. Badge. Per fess gules and vert, a cross and in canton a pearled coronet Or.
The submitter is a court baron and thus entitled to the display of a coronet.
This is the submitter’s sixth piece of registered armory.
Gerhard Stormeclocke. Badge. (Fieldless) On a tower sable, a lightning bolt palewise Or.
There is a step from period practice for the use of a lightning bolt not as part of a thunderbolt.
Giana di Nicholò da Firenze. Name and device. Vert, on a pile indented argent an owl’s head cabossed sable.
Please advise the submitter to draw the pile with more indentations and to add internal details on the owl’s head to improve its identifiability.
Gunnarr askasmiðr Óláfsson. Name and device. Sable, in saltire a rapier inverted argent and a guitar Or, in chief a death’s head argent.
Hans Ferdinand Engel. Name and device. Quarterly gules and azure, a sword inverted winged at the blade argent transfixing a harp Or.
Hasanah bint al-Khalil ibn Habib. Name and device. Erminois, an elephant’s head cabossed gules, a chief sable.
Jadwiga Piwowarka Miodunka. Name and device. Gyronny argent and gules, in pale a demi-weasel sable issuant from a mug purpure.
Piwowarka is the feminine form of the occupational byname meaning “beer brewer”. Miodunka/Miodanka is a common noun meaning “lungwort” (the herb).
Commenters questioned the pattern of two descriptive bynames. However, the submitter’s previous submission also used this pattern, and the need to document the pattern was not mentioned in the return. Therefore, we will not penalize the submitter for using the same pattern. We note that one example of this pattern, Matheus przasnek piekut (1640-1), was found in Abramovicz et al., Slownik Historycznych Nazw Osobowych Bialostocczyzny, vol. 2, s.n. Pi(e)kut.
Janna von Guggenberg. Name and device. Gules, on a bend Or two domestic cats courant sable.
Submitted as Janna von Guggisberg, the Letter of Intent documented the place name Guggisberg as a modern form. Ælfwynn Leoflæde dohtor documented the following forms: Gugenberch (1282) and Guckhenberger (1590), found in Brechenmacher, s.n. Guggenberg(er); andGugansperk (1291) and gukansperg (1287), found in Socin. In addition, the spelling Guggenbergk is found in 16th century Switzerland in the FamilySearch Historical Records.
As the submitter requested “a late period form of that name that is relatively similar to the modern form if it can be identified.” We have changed the name to Guggenberg, which has been interpolated from the above forms. If the submitter prefers one of the attested spellings, or if she wants to change to the lingua Anglica form of Guggisberg, she can submit a request for reconsideration.
Janna is the submitter’s legal given name. It is also found as a given name from Prussia, dated to the early 1600s, in the FamilySearch Historical Records. Therefore, the submitter need not rely on the legal name allowance.
Jaspar van Doorne. Device. Per pale azure and argent, a chevron cotised between three mullets of eight points counterchanged.
Kenric æt Essexe. Device change. Per pale and chevronelly Or and sable.
This conflicts with the device of Gustaf Rikardsson: Per pale Or and sable, three chevronels counterchanged and in canton a hand issuant from a wing fesswise maintaining a sword reversed fesswise sable. However, the submitter has permission from Gustaf to conflict with his device.
The submitter’s old device, Per chevron argent and gules, three increscents counterchanged, is retained as a badge.
Roland de la Mar. Name change from Roland de Endeweard and device. Per chevron inverted argent and azure, a phoenix counterchanged.
The given name Roland is grandfathered to the submitter. It is also found in Amsterdam dated to 1592 in the FamilySearch Historical Records. Therefore the submitter need not rely upon the grandfather clause.
The submitter may wish to know that the byname de la Mar is also found in Amsterdam, dated to 1630.
The submitter’s previous name, Roland de Endeweard, is released.
Rosa Linda degli Uccelli. Name and device. Gules, on an owl affronty maintaining in its talons a rose slipped and leaved argent, a heart gules and in chief a cross bottony and a fleur-de-lys Or.
This name combines an Italian given name, a Swiss German given name, and an Italian byname. The combination of Italian and German is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA.
This device does not violate SENA A3D2a, “slot machine” armory, which means a design having more than two types of charge in a single group. Maintained charges are their own secondary group and thus the rose here is not in the same group as the cross and the fleur.
Rose Steel. Name and device. Per bend sinister gules and argent, a rose slipped and leaved argent and a domestic cat rampant sable, a bordure sable semy of acorns argent.
Nice 14th century English name!
Roseia Posey. Device. Argent, a lighthouse gules between three fountains.
This device does not conflict with the device of Máel Brigte ingenue Aimirgin: Argent, a brazier gules. There is a DC for the difference between a lighthouse and a brazier and another DC for adding the secondary fountains.
Sarah Gerlyn Easthope. Name and device. Per bend sinister azure and gules, two domestic cats sejant contourny Or each maintaining a heart argent, a bordure Or.
Please advise the submitter to draw the hearts larger so they are more easily identifiable.
Sarra atte Brouk. Badge. (Fieldless) A stick shuttle fesswise sable.
Simon Caspar Joder. Name change from Simon Caspar Joder von Steffisburg.
All elements in this name are grandfathered to the submitter.
The submitter’s previous name, Simon Caspar Joder von Steffisburg, is released.
Therion Sean Storie. Household name House of the Lemming (see RETURNS for badge).
Lemming is a lingua Anglica form of the Early Modern English Lemmar or Lemmus.
Ulrich Reinhart. Device. Argent, on a bend sinister between two ships azure three plates.
Una inghean Chonain. Device. Quarterly azure and gules, a lily of the valley slipped and leaved argent.
William of Wyndhaven. Name.
In commentary, Metron Ariston documented place names using the prototheme Wynd-, including Wyndriche/Wyndrishe, Wynderushe, Wyndesore Park, Nova Wyndsore, and Wyndeham, all found in Watts, s.nn. Windrush, Windsor Great Park, Old Windsor, and Wineham.
Eckhart Wurm. Device. Per pale embattled Or and gules, a wingless dunghill cock and a dragon respectant, a chief counterchanged.
This device is returned for violating SENA A2C1 which states that “Elements must be drawn in their period forms”. The issue here is the posture of the cock. While having one leg raised is considered a variant of close, all of the medieval images show the leg lower than horizontal. We are unaware of period depictions with a leg raised anywhere near as high as the one in this submission, with the elevated leg at a 45 degree angle above the horizontal.
Eva von Kölln. Device. Argent, surmounting a cross sable between in chief two oak leaves and in base two otters combattant vert, a heart gules.
This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states “Elements must be drawn to be identifiable.” Commenters had trouble identifying the otters, which were generally perceived as lizards.
Therion Sean Storie. Badge. Azure, on a saltire argent a lemming salient contourny sable, a bordure Or.
This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states “Elements must be drawn to be identifiable.” Commenters had trouble identifying the lemming and it was generally confused with a bear. It might be easier to recognize with a rounder body, a rounder face and shorter legs.
If you are interested in being on the Melee Champ’s team this year, please fire me an email at Justin.Aucoin@gmail.com so I can add you to my list of candidates.
