(NOTE: this page is intended to become a full discussion of what needs to be prepared for an award ceremony, to be linked from the main EK website. Justin and Caitlin are organizing it; please speak with them before changing anything. Initially, we are brainstorming the outline, before we begin wordsmithing.)

  • Common concepts
    • Stuff that pertains to any award
    • Who to Notify
      • Family, if involved in SCA
      • Peer, if they have one
      • Household
      • Possibly local nobility
      • Possibly other friends
    • Surprise
      • By default, assume awards are supposed to be a surprise
      • If you know for sure that they don't want a surprise, notify the Royalty
        • Don't break it without checking first: some Royalty care a lot about this
        • Writ of Summons can be the best way to split the difference
  • Orders
    • Arranging for a medallion
      • Often provided by a friend in the Order, but not always
      • If they have a Peer, check with them *first*
      • Royals can usually provide a medallion if necessary, but usually better ceremony if one is given
  • Baronies
    • Arranging for a coronet
  • Peerages
    • Setting up a vigil
      • Need to know event well in advance
      • Will usually need a bunch of help
      • Some households care passionately about this, and will want to run it
      • Talk to autocrat, to line up space for vigil
      • Open to all/Peers/Order?
      • Furniture
      • Food?
      • Guest book?
    • Lining up sponsors
    • Regalia
    • Good clothing for court
      • "In case of Peerage" box -- extreme case, but can be very snazzy
