    WOW this is great! Hope you dont mind if I use it to educate local people.

  2. I love this overview! So simple and easy to follow. Be prepared for plenty of “Can I use that on this website?” requests. (By the way… Can I use this on another website? 😉

  3. Birke die Jägerin says:

    This is awesome! Thank you!

  4. May I snag this or at minimum link to this on our group page? It is very nice for beginners and even people who have been in a while. Thank you for creating this!

  5. gebhard says:

    I give blanket approval for anyone wishing to use this within the SCA.

    If can be helpful to you or your group in the slightest way it is my pleasure for you use it.

    Be sure to check back from time to time for revisions.

  6. Agnoletta di Monferrati says:

    Well done!

  7. Konrad Mailander says:

    Very nice. I use a similar matrix when I teach about the Awards. I love the idea of adding the badges. I will do a similar version of mine, which includes our Baronial awards.

  8. Moll Sotherden says:

    Brilliant 🙂 Thank you! As a visual artist (who is quite hindered by learning anything non-visual) this is absolutely brilliant.

  9. Hakon Hrafnsson says:
