Calligraphy & Illumination
Aethelmearc has a tradition of gifting personalized, hand-made scrolls with its awards and commendations. In order to support the demand, many artisans are needed to create the art pieces that are awarded at every court. These scrolls can be made in any artist's medium, and often require the effort of wordsmiths, calligraphers, and illuminators to create. Scroll making falls within the Arts & Sciences.
