Welcome!

The Kingdom of Calontir is a regional group within the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), an international organization dedicated to recreating aspects of the Middle Ages. If you are unfamiliar with the SCA, we would suggest starting with the newcomers section.

The region that makes up Calontir covers most of Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri and a touch of Arkansas. If you are interested in contacting the SCA within this area, take a look at the Groups and Branches list or the Calontir Map. Join us as we learn about history by making it come alive. Follow us on Facebook, or you can contact us at info@calontir.org.

Falcon Signet Changes and Letters of Intent

From the Minister of Arts and Sciences,

As announced by the Qan and Qatan at Kingdom Arts and Sciences Championships and will be read in the next set of Kingdom Law changes, the position of Falcon Signet is moved to a fully warranted deputy of the Minister of Arts and Science. The current Falcon Signet, Mistress Elynor of Glastonbury, has served the Calon Ordu with all her heart for long past her warrant, but she requests we seek a replacement to allow her to attend to other life matters.

To this end and with the permission of our gracious Qan and Qatan, I request all interested individuals submit letters summarizing their qualifications to the KMOAS, Their Majesties and Their Highnesses, and to the Chancellor of RUSH no later than May 20 of this year.

The ideal candidate for Falcon Signet will bring not only calligraphers and illuminators but the rest of the book arts community – pigmenters, parchmenters, paper-makers, text writers, and book makers – together. The Signet will gather information from the Known World Signets and create a Best Practices guideline that is uniquely Calontir. The Falcon Signet will update the Scribes Handbook, in conjunction with the Calontir Book Arts Community, to reflect the state of award production as it currently exists. They will work with the Kingdom Minister of Arts and Sciences to update and publish the job description of the Falcon Signet on the Kingdom Web Page as well as in the Scribes Handbook.

The Falcon Signet will continue to supervise the work of the Backlog Scrolls Clerk and the activities of the Scribes Guild. The Signet works closely with the Royal Scribe for each Reign, ensuring the preprinted scrolls for each Reign are cataloged and archived, and they assist the Royal Scribe as requested. The new Signet will begin the process of creating an official Calontir digital archive of original scroll awards presented. This will require working with the Kingdom Web Minister to discover the appropriate resources and methods for the project, as well as with the Falcon Banner to incorporate their Scroll Archive project, if possible.

The Falcon Signet works intimately with the Chancellor of RUSH so a full track of Book Arts classes is available to the populace of Calontir throughout the year and across the Kingdom. The Signet works with other Artisans to identify new talent and pair talent with mentors, with the goal of increasing the skill and enthusiasm for Book Arts throughout Calontir. Finally, the Falcon Signet represents the Kingdom at interkingdom Signet meetings and events whenever possible.

Because the Falcon Signet is a warranted deputy, the holder of the office must be a paid member of the SCA. Letters of interest should include SCA and modern name, member number and membership expiration date, mailing and email address, and phone number. There is no requirement of rank to hold the Falcon Signet office. After the letter cut-off date, interviews may be scheduled if needed. A decision should be made and announced by Lilies War.
