Award & Report Forms
The reward recommendation and monthly report forms are available here:
Forms for minors attending SCA events
Any minor attending an SCA event must bring a consent form to gate. This form must be signed by the minor’s legal guardian, such as a parent. For only one minor, use the “Minor Consent” form. If the same guardian signs for multiple minors, it may be more convenient to use the “Multiple Minor Waiver” instead. These forms are available here:
Any minor attending an SCA event accompanied by an adult other than their legal guardian must also bring three signed copies of the appropriate medical authorization form. Each such minor must also bring one copy of a photo ID for the minor’s legal guardian, and that ID must include the guardian’s signature. Please read the form for details.

The Baronial Library
The Barony has a nice library, faithfully kept by the wonderful Baronial Librarian, LIBRARIAN, of many, many books. Contact the Librarian to see some of the books we have!
The Baronial Herald
The herald is the officer responsible for everything from simple field heraldry such as announcing the next bout in the tourney, to designing unique arms for a new branch, and heralding Baronial courts. Their duties include; assisting members of the populace research, design and register names and devices, keeping records of awards, training new heralds, and supervising voice heraldry for events.
Heraldry serves many purposes in the SCA. The visual display of heraldry, on banners, clothing and other objects creates pageantry. Maintaining the order of precedence reinforces the Medieval social structure, and heraldic research aids in persona development by providing appropriate names and personal devices.
Golden Dragon Pursuivant
The principal Herald in Dragons Laire is the Golden Dragon Pursuivant. Currently in Dragon’s Laire, heraldic duties are divided between the Golden Dragon Pursuivant and our “Book” Herald. The Golden Dragon acts as the primary herald, visible at court functions, organizing voice heralds and handing official office records. Our “book” herald, focuses on the documentation and registration of names and devices.
Resources for Heraldry
Countess Elisabeth de Rossignol, a very important mucky-mucky, shall we say, a LION, of the herald community, has offered the following list of her favorite name resources.
- The Medieval Names Archive Compact Index
- Some Heraldic and Onomastic Books Found for Free Online
- Lexicon of Greek Personal Names
