This makes sense.

I am afraid this makes no sense to me.  If I am due, say an Order of
the Bough  and an Order of the Velvet Owl (Kingdom level service and
A+S awards of Meridies), scrolls, and I move to Atlantia, you folks
are going to do the scrolls for me?

That's impressive.  I personally wouldn't expect that.

Actually yes.  I have scrolls from East and Middle on my backlog list as well.  Generally
we consider them as added to the Atlantian backlog list.  That doesn't mean they'll be done
soon but it is something that I should know about for eventual assignment.  

Meridies is a very different case.  Usually when you get a scroll in the Meridies, you get
the real thing done in court because in Meridies, they don't do anything but special requests
or peerages by hand.  Everything else, including kingdom merit awards like the Velvet Owl
are xerox copies of masters (mostly created by my laurel, Master Loren) and colored in.  They
may be painted in by hand or may be colored in with marker but they are generally not done
by hand.  My knowledge is about 4 years old but I believe this is still the case in Meridies.
