White Wolf Fian

The White Wolf Fian is a challenge order for the arts & sciences in the Kingdom of Ealdormere, within the Society for Creative Anachronism. There is no badge, and membership does not convey any rank.

The aim of the Order is to encourage artisans to increase their knowledge and skills through continuous challenges of at least intermediate difficulty, but which are a personal challenge to the person seeking to join the order. Challenges can build on one another, or challengers can take up a new challenge area.

The Royal Consort is patron(ess) of the Order.

Challenges are made, tested and accepted at royal events. Members of the Fian will make themselves available to consider challenges at least three times during the year: Fruits of our Labours, War of the Trillium, and Feast of the Hare.

Challengers must communicate with members of the Order before making their challenge in Court. This can be done on the day of the event, but we encourage potential challengers to make contact in advance, so that there will be an opportunity to understand the proposed challenge, consider modifications, and agree on wording for the challenge to be made.

Challengers normally have up to one year to complete their challenge. However, they can challenge for a shorter period if they wish. If necessary, they can also seek an extension of up to one year, with justification. If the deadline passes without being completed or extended, the challenge is considered forfeit. Some modifications to the original challenge can be negotiated, but significant changes are considered to be a new challenge, and the original will be forfeit.

When the challenger feels their challenge is complete, they must meet with as many members of the Fian as possible to present the results of their labours. If the Order considers the challenge to have been met, they make a recommendation to the Consort, who will have the challenger called up in court to present their completed work and be admitted to the Order.

Members remain part of the Order for three years, after which they must challenge in again to retain their place in the Fian.
