Tonight! Thursday February 24! BMDL’s Virtual Scribal East is happening once again! Join us as we come together online to make art, share stories and socialize from the comfort of our own homes! We start at 7:00 EDT and run until about 9:00. All are welcome!!
There will be a scriptorium tonight, May 27th starting at 7pm. This scriptorium will have an online component, and an in-person component. The online component is on Aethelmearc Zoom. Connection details have been posted to Discord #scriptorium. For more information, or if you would like to attend in-person, email scriptorium (at) debatablelands (dot) org.
From the vibrant mind of Lady Tierrany Rose Orre:
On Saturday, June 20th at 1pm, we’d love to invite all to participate in a virtual show-and-tell Scroll and Award Tour, via Zoom!
We invite everyone to come and watch, but hope lots will participate in the tour!
If you’d like to join the fun, please choose anywhere from one to five of your favorite scrolls, tokens, and/or awards to share via your webcam, then bring us all on a little trip down Memory Lane, telling us a bit about where, when, and how you received them. It can be as simple as a token received from your favorite Queen’s hand or as ornate as a treasured scroll crafted by a friend. We’d love to see and hear about your items of honor!
We hope this will be a fun chance for our populace to learn a bit about each other, revisit pleasant times past, and view some of the beautiful pieces of artistry the members of our Kingdom (and perhaps others!) have created. Chances are pretty good that you have an item made by one of our barony’s gifted artists… imagine how seeing it once again will make your scribe’s day!
We envision this as a great opportunity to create deeper connections in these disconnected times. Hope to see you there!
Zoom link, when available, will be provided as a reply on the email list, and in the Facebook event page:

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
The Known World Heraldic Symposium for 2018 has closed and by all accounts was a smashing success!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who helped make this event possible.
Inspiration for the bid:
Elsbeth, who always wanted to have KWHSS held in the Debatable Lands … we made your dream come true.
Wu, the event steward for the 2017 KWHSS who provided me with valuable information and advice. Supporting cast: Emma, Juliana, and all those who sent me advice and made suggestions.
Raven, my co-event steward, who helped out wherever needed and made the totes and name tags happen through excellent recruiting!
Jorundr, he kept up with all my updates and crazy ideas and made them work, and made sure I stayed within the policies. Supporting cast: Kameshima.
Rachel, who served as my “Facebook Secretary” as I am not on that platform. Supporting cast: Elss, who posted to BMDL’s blog and shared the information across Facebook. Thanks also to all those who liked, shared and further distributed the information about the event.

Bronwyn, tetris master supreme who worked wonders in setting up our class schedule given all the constraints (and for handling last minute changes at the event).
Robert, who organized a fleet of shuttles to get our attendees from the airport, to and from the Friday reception, and back to the airport again. Supporting cast: Muirgheal, Elsbeth, Alaric, Elss, Hilda, Ceindrech, Gwen, Alison.

If I missed anyone it is because of my forgetfulness. All your contributions were noticed, no matter how big or small. This event happened because of all of you!

We hope you enjoyed your visit to Aethelmearc and we look forward to seeing many of you in Calontir next year and Lochac in two years.
