Greetings! Much has been made over the past year about the College's
nemesis, Dread Beast Backlog. Several attacks on the monster were
mounted over the summer, which were very successful in rallying the
populace to defense of the Crown. However, Backlog 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 still need
There are many opportunities 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,
check out the College of Scribe's page on the Kingdom website - click on
the gold ink pot on a black background. Look for the "Volunteer
Opportunities" to see how you can get started helping right away.
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 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. In addition, there are two new functions
available: "Recipient Verification", to help us identify who is still
active, and "Waive a Scroll" for those who would gift the Realm with the
waiver of one or more of their lesser scrolls still outstanding.
Audience participation in these new features have helped to reduce
Backlog by 20% already. Maybe you can help reduce It even more!
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.
Aja da Varese
Chancellor of the West Kingdom College of Scribes
