In June of 2019, I had the honor of writing the scroll text for my friend Sarah la Malade’s Coral Branch, their first award in the SCA. The art was done by my friend Kaaren Valravn. For more on the scroll, see Lady Kaaren’s site.
Scroll Text: Let all know that We, Christoph and Adelheit, King and Queen of Atlantia, love the beauty of Coral. Coral takes many forms and colors, a rainbow that enriches the populace. Like the Coral, Sarah la Malade has enriched their Shire in diverse ways, through music, poetry, and research. Their work is known and admired; the hands that perform the work are beloved. Thus do we see fit to induct Sarah into Our Order of the Coral Branch. So too do We raise them to the ranks of nobility and Award Arms, directing Noble Sarah to consult with Our heralds in the creation of arms that befit them alone. Done by Our hand this day, June 29, A.S. LIV, being 2019 in modern reckoning, at Storvik Novice in the Barony of Storvik.
