In an ongoing endeavor to serve our beloved Realm, the West Kingdom
College of Scribes is pleased to announce some new features on our
The first release of the "Fast Track" is now available. This system is
designed to allow those with a scroll awaiting production to get their
scroll faster. Recipients can designate a scroll for priority
assignment, as well as give us important information that will speed the
scroll down the pipeline. And recipients can even jump right in on the
production of their own scroll, to speed its creation even more. Simply
check the appropriate boxes on the form, and we will match you up with
the help, supplies and equipment you need to get scribing - even if you
think you can't!
Secondly, we are seeking your help via the Verification List. Use this
new feature to help us identity those members of the populace who are
not currently active or not currently resident in the Kingdom, so we can
better prioritize which scrolls are assigned first. Note that no scrolls
or recipients are being removed from the database - we just want to make
sure we aren't working on scrolls that can't be easily delivered when
they are finished.
Lastly, we are inviting Peers of the Realm to further serve the Kingdom
by waiving receipt of any or all of their lesser scrolls that are still
outstanding. While we of the College fight relentlessly against Dread
Beast Backlog, it is a fearsome giant, and Cousin to the more widely
known Hydra, in that having cut off one of its scrolls, many more spring
forth in its place. So we could really use your help! Those who choose
to contribute to the Kingdom in this fashion will receive priority
consideration for the assignment of their Peerage scroll, if it is still
awaiting production. Note that waived scrolls may be returned to the
active "to do" list at any time if you change your mind, or if Dread
Beast Backlog breathes its last...
While visiting our website, you are cordially invited to read the many
articles there, full of useful info on how the College is organized and
operates, and to send along any questions you may still have. Do check
your listing (friends and family too!) in the Scrolls List, and let us
know if there are any updates.
And be sure to read the new "Volunteer Opportunities" page. There are
many ways for you to join with us to defeat Backlog, even if you think
you are not a scribe. The College has need for administrative aides and
for patrons, and has new programs in place for the new or not-yet scribe
to pitch in on the production of high-quality scrolls. Our fair Queen
Eliška has also called to Herself a Royal Scribal Corps, with a
focus of recruiting non-scribes to stunt the regrowth of Backlog's
scrolls. To answer Her summons or otherwise join the Army of Lightfast
Darkness in defense of our beloved West Kingdom, look for the "Volunteer
Opportunities" to see how you can get started helping right away.
And if you are a scribe...I will be stepping down as Chancellor of the
College at Beltane. So if you've ever wanted to look Dread Beast Backlog
right in the eye - or would like to again! - please let me know of your
interest in the office.
