Court Barony for Sterling de la Rosa


This is the command of the noble, exalted, lofty sultinic sign and the illustrious, world-conquering khakanic tuğra… may it be effective through Divine aid and Eternal protection!  Heed the mighty words of Sultan R'youko’jin and Sultana Indrakshi. We have commanded that Our Knight Sterling De La Rosa, having pleased us with his advice, his service, and the skill of his sword, be made a Baron of our Court. May he be granted a plot of land close by the Iron Bog, fertile and damp, which bears many large stones.  This command, thus given in writing, must therefore be enacted before the sun has set on this day, the 4th of June in the 57th year of the Society, from Our Dīvān at Southern Region War Camp.

Notes for the Scribe: based on a 16th century Ottoman legal document called a “Firmān”

The Khakanic tugra is the "signature" of the Sultan, like the image above (not from the scroll produced for court).. It was penned by a special scribe who had the legal authority to sign for the Sultan thereby making the document authentic.  

If the scroll text is too long, please feel free to chop off the first two lines and start with “Heed the mighty words…”  which should get you to 99 words.

Silver Brooch for Cezillia Raposa

And so she navigated to our shore,  Fair winds had brought her safely to the East, She’d carried brushes, paints and clever lore, With Winston, truest friend and feline beast. Then once she’d found a land with opened doors, She made, for friends and Kings, her art into a feast. This is the land for which she’d ever longed; The sweetness of a home where she belonged. Thus, at the Sixth Ethereal Court of the Eastern Consuls of the East, Tindal and Alberic, do induct Cezilia Raposa into our Order of the Silver Brooch.   ---------- This is a scroll text for one of my dearest friends, Cezillia Raposa.  The scroll was illuminated by Mistress Nataliia and the caligraphy was by Baroness Faeillin, who has since become the Signet of all the Eastern Scribes (a kingdom level job).  This was a fun scroll for us to collaborate on, because Cezillia, Nataliia and I have worked together for other ...er...  victims.. in the past, and Nataliia also used to be the Signet, so there was a lovely symmetry in

Part 1: A Value Map for SCA Membership

In my mundane life I am a member of the Business Architecture Guild, currently working for an IT Enterprise Architecture department, practicing Business Architecture, and studying for my Business Architecture certification exam.  Business Architecture is a discipline that allows the practitioners to abstract an enterprise, and the business ecosystem in which it operates, in order to allow the managers of the enterprise to think about business in a non operational/strategic way. It is a communication and analytical framework for translating strategy into actionable initiatives.  In my elevator speech to C-Suite folks I say that practicing BA is like developing the network diagram you see hanging on the wall in an IT Architecture Department, only it represents the business, not the technology. A completed business architecture are the blueprints of the business; a map of concepts, definitions and models that describe how an organization creates value for its stakeholders.  As I write thi
