	Okay, I've got to stand up for myself and a number of other 
fighters here.  I'm a fighter, I freely admit that and I'm proud of being 
able to be a part of Atlantia's fine army.  I've only received one 
scroll, and it is not, to the best of my knowledge, anything more than a 
nicely printed document with my name and a few other minor details added 
in.  However, the first thing I did when I got it home (I received it in 
the middle of War week this past Pennsic at a Baronial Court) was to put 
it in a frame.  It now sits on my desk above my computer.  I hope one day 
to earn my Award of Arms, and I will treasure the scroll that comes with 
it.  I also know of several other people who have received their AoA's 
who are fighters, and they could not take their eyes of the scrolls that 
were given to them.
