Politarchopolis Roll of Arms

We think it’s important to recognise and celebrate the contributions and achievements of our members, so along with the awards system of the rest of the kingdom, the Barony of Politarchopolis has its own awards.

Through their service and skill, members of the populace contribute to the barony, and we recognise this with Baronial Awards.
A full list of recipients of baronial awards is below.

All these awards are given out by the Baron and Baroness at their discretion, but they decide who should get them based on recommendations from the populace. If you know someone in our group is doing great things and you think they should be recognised for it, you can recommend them for an award by emailing politarchopolis@lochac.sca.org.
