Order of Precedence
 Order of Precedence  

Order of Precedence is a sequential hierarchy of rank. In the SCA, this takes the form of recognition of awards received, the rank of the award and when the person received it.

In formal events, the Order of Precedence plays a part in how members of the SCA relate to each other. For example: in Crown tournament, combatants and their consorts are presented to the crown before the tournament in Order of Precedence.

In Atenveldt's Online order of precedence, a person need not have an award to be listed. With photos and devices from many of our populace, the OP works as a who's who in Atenveldt. Feel free to explore.

Atenveldt's award charters are also kept in the Order of Precedence.  An award charter is part of Kingdom Law that formally states all the information about the award.

Award Charter

Constitution for the Order of the Hammer of al-Barran

I.          There shall exist in the Barony of al‑Barran an award, known as the Order of the Hammer of al-Barran, which may be given by the Coronet, subject to the pleasure of the Crown, to those persons whom they feel have demonstrated knowledge and skill in the use of traditional SCA-style weaponry.

IV.        Arms and precedence:

A.            The award shall carry with it, subject to the pleasure of the Crown, an Award of Arms.  Companions of the order shall take precedence after principality orders but before a simple Award of Arms.

B.            If the award is given to a person who bears an award carrying higher precedence than given above, his/her precedence shall remain unchanged.

C.            If the award is given to a person who has previously received an Award of Arms, his/her precedence shall date from his/her election to the Order.

V.            Amendments to this constitution shall be made by the Coronet of al‑Barran after due consultation with the Crown.
