Search Forms for the SCA Armorial
There are six search forms available:
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.
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
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.
Blazon Pattern Search Form which allows you to search for
blazons containing particular words or text patterns.
Date/Kingdom Search Form which allows you to search for registrations
during a particular time-period or via a particular kingdom.
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.
