Search Forms for the SCA Armorial

There are six search forms available:

  1. A Name Search Form which allows you to search the SCA Armorial database for items associated with a particular name. This form is fast and simple, but not very powerful. For instance, your search will fail if you don't type the name exactly right.

  2. An Armory Description Search Form which allows you to search for registered items that appear under a particular heading in the SCA Ordinary. This form is difficult to use because you must know how the headings are coded in the database. This difficulty will be corrected eventually, but for now the SCA Ordinary is much more useful.

  3. A Name Pattern Search Form which allows you to search for items associated with a name, even if you don't know the exact spelling of the name. Very useful.

  4. A Blazon Pattern Search Form which allows you to search for blazons containing particular words or text patterns.

  5. A Date/Kingdom Search Form which allows you to search for registrations during a particular time-period or via a particular kingdom.

  6. A Complex Search Form which allows you to do sophisticated searches on the database by combining the results of multiple searches. This form is tricky to use, because there are more things to configure.

You can also find currently-registered armory using the on-line SCA Ordinary.
