My apologies to those who get this more than once, I am hoping to spread
this missive as far and wide as I can:
Greetings unto the great Populace of Calontir,
My name is Roberto, and I am the new Lanner Herald. For those that do not
know what this name means, I will explain. I am the Kingdom Deputy Herald
for Ceremony. It is my duty to help any and all who have a ceremony to
plan, make those plans successful.
As such, I am starting a grand project. I would like to document any and
all ceremonies that have ever happened in this Kingdom. This is a daunting
task, and I know I will never be 100% successful. But to this end I have a
plea to anyone and everyone willing to help.
If you have any ceremonies in your possession, that have ever happened in
this Kingdom, please send me a copy? I will not distribute these as such,
but I will compile them all, and use them as a resource to help guide anyone
wishing input on a ceremony they want to put together.
What kind of ceremony am I looking for you may ask?
This can include, but is sincerely not limited to:
Knighting, Laureling, Pelicaning, Rose ceremonies, Coronations, crowning of
victors at Crown Tournament, Baronial investitures, taking of associates
(any level, any type), any ceremonies involving the bestowing of court
baronages, or royal perrages, and any vigil ceremonies, or anything else you
can think of.
Why do I wish to do this? We have some WONDERFUL creative people in this
Kingdom, and we have had some amazing ceremonies. But we have no central
repository of them. If we can create said central repository, then if
anyone ever asks when, or how something happened we can answer the question.
Eventually I hope to help people with both SCA central ceremonies, and
period ceremonies, and the differences between them. But in order to build
this knowledgebase, I must have a base to work from.
Any of these can be delivered to me during any event I am at, or can be sent
electronically, or through modern postal services. My information will be
in the MEWS, as all Kingdom officers and deputies are, or I can be
contacted through the email lanner (at) Calontir (dot) info
I look forward to any and all submissions, and thank you all for your help.
Please repost this to any lists you happen to belong to. If someone can get
this to the peerage lists as well, that would be MOST helpful.
Again, my most humble thanks.
Lord Roberto Carlos Dominguez
