Kingdom Drachenwald Signet Clerk
Principality Nordmark Signet Clerk
Principality Insulae Draconis Signet Clerk
Barony of Aarnimetsä Signet Clerk
A signet clerk is in charge of coordinating with the King and Queen / Prince and Princess and the scribes of the kingdom to create calligraphed and illuminated works of art to be given out with awards and to commemorate entrances into orders.
A scribe in the Society for Creative Anachronism is a person who creates these documents; a scribe can either do illumination or calligraphy or both to produce a unique and original work of art. Award documents in the SCA are not just works of art but are also official documentation of the award that was given out, like a diploma.
