May Scriptorium Cancelled; Go to War Practice!

Unto the Barony, greetings from Kameshima, Scribal Guildmaster.

This month’s Scriptorium, scheduled for May 17, overlaps with the first night of War Practice. In an effort not to overload your schedule, we are choosing to cancel this month’s practice, and instead, recommend that you attend War Practice and avail yourself of the plethora of scribal classes that will be offered, and the Scribal Playtime that will take place from 10am – 4pm on Saturday, May 20th.

Join us again in June for our regularly scheduled Project Night! Remember that Project Nights are also available for Small Group Workshops: if you have a specific topic or skill that you would like to work on, please let us know at and we will do our best to arrange for someone to be there to work with you.

​In Honor and Service,
Kameshima Zentarō Umakai
Baronial Scribal Guildmaster

First Fridays – This Friday

This Friday, 5 May 2017 will be First Friday at Keiran and Odriana’s. There won’t be fighting as Keiran needs to work that evening, however, Odriana will be hosting.

What is First Friday? I’m glad that you asked. It’s an opportunity to socialize, for the most part. We have a loose framework of hanging out and enjoying/talking about Medieval food. You don’t like to cook, but you like food? Come and eat.

So, bring a medieval dish to share, print out or write up your recipe and tell us a little bit about what you find interesting about the dish, or what you enjoy about the dish. Tell us a little bit about your experience making it and we’ll eat and hang out.

If you’re unfamiliar with medieval cooking and need some direction, here are a couple of useful links for beginner recipes that you can try:

Godecookery – “A Boke of Good Cookery”

​Medievalcookery – “Medieval Recipes”

If the weather is nice, we may move things outside to the fire circle, so bring a chair with you as we only have a few.

If you have any questions, please contact Odriana at jenn.strobel(at)gmail(dot)com.


Pursuivant Online Office Hours TOMORROW

This is a reminder from your local Comet Pursuivant that the very first Heraldic On-line Office Hours begins tomorrow, from 7:00-9:00pm. I invite all who are interested in getting heraldry, who are working on their heraldry, who already are waiting for a response on their heraldry, and of course other heralds to pop in and join me for questions and answers about things, you guessed it, heraldic.

The link to this Google hangout will be posted on the blog and you can also contact me by email at herald(at) Thank you all very much!

Comet Pursuivant Office Hours

Comet Pursuivant Office Hours

Mon, May 1, 7:00 PM EDT

Do you have questions about heraldry? Are you searching for ideas for a device, or searching for the right name for your persona? Are you interested in getting involved in heraldry? Join me online and ask all the questions you have during this bi-monthly 2-hour online hangout (the link will be posted a week before and a day before office hours begin) and I will do all I can to help you! Other heralds are welcome to join, assist, or observe!

Fencing Practice

This Sunday we resume fencing practice at the Washington Blvd site at 1 PM.

There will be loaner gear for fencing and cut n thrust available for those interested.

As a glance to the future, there will be no practice May 21 as that is the weekend of War Practice, and I will be unavailable to run practice May 28, which is Memorial Day weekend, and am looking for a marshal to run practice in my stead. If you are able to run practice that week let me know.
