I am seeking a deputy for the position of Lanner Herald.
Many of you have no idea that this position exists, much less what it does. The Lanner Herald’s job is to help with ceremonies in Calontir. I have some time left on my warrant, but I have a project in mind and I need some help.
Calontir has a big book of ceremonies, but this big book is rarely referenced in part because few people know of it and it is not readily available. It is my desire to improve Calontir’s ceremonies by cataloging this big book and all the other ceremonies I can get my grubby little hands upon. This is not a small undertaking and I need help. What I need is someone to scan / transcribe the ceremonies so that I can electronically catalogue them.
Qualifications: An interest in ceremonies, both in the SCA and in history. Constant access to a computer, to help digitize things. A willingness and desire to organize things. Ideas for how you’d like to see things done better.
This is a long-term project. Applicants should expect that by becoming deputy, they will eventually become Lanner themselves. This project thus requires a commitment. Also, applicants should be prepared to actively reach out to those who might need ceremonies.
