Created for the Principality of Northshield, these Non-Armigerous Awards are a valued part of Northshield's current award structure. While it isn't necessary, some scribes may chose to use the traditional principality wording on their scrolls for the following awards.

Order of the Pyxis: Given for putting forth great effort at researching, creating and maintaining a period persona and atmosphere.

As the compass and the navigational stars give guidance to travelers, so do certain gentle persons give direction to our lives by their example. The Order of the Pyxis shall recognize such gentles in the Principality of Northshield who, by their deeds, exemplify the ideals of the Society for Creative Anachronism. It is with pleasure that We, «Prince» Prince by right of arms and «Princess», Our Princess, do invite «Name» into the Companionship of the Order. «Name» is granted all rights and responsibilities appertaining thereto, including the right to bear the badge of the Order of the Pyxis. This We do on this «Date> day of «Month», A.S. «Year», while sitting on Our thrones in Our «Place name».

Order of the Saltire: Membership in this order may be offered to an individual that has shown a proven record of widespread guidance and instruction, enriching the abilities of the Northshield populace.

Knowledge is the greatest wealth that can be passed from person to person. Those who share their knowledge willingly help to enrich all of our lives. It is in recognition of these deeds that We «Prince», Prince by right of arms and «Princess», Our Princess, do invite «Name» into the Companionship of the Order of the Saltire, especially for their teaching of «Specify». «Name» is granted all rights and responsibilities appertaining thereto, including the right to bear the badge of the Order of the Saltire. This We do on t his «Date> day of «Month», A.S. «Year», while sitting on Our thrones in Our «Place name».

Order of the Crwth: Given for proficiency in the performing arts (dance, bardic recitation, music, theater, etc.)

Cold winter nights and long twilight summers lend themselves to visits from the muses, often in form of music, poetry, stories and tales, dance, and more. Therefore We, «Prince», Prince by right of arms and «Princess», Our Princess, do wish to acknowledge the performance art of «Name», most especially for his/her skill in «Specify», and invite him/her into the Companionship of the Order of Crwth. «Name» is granted all rights and responsibilities appertaining thereto, including the right to bear the badge of the Order of the Crwth. This We do on this «Date> day of «Month», A.S. «Year», while sitting on Our thrones in Our «Place name».

Award of the Hearthstead: (formerly the Hearth) Given to groups who consistently (or specifically) excel at showing hospitality and hosting events. This award is not just for SCA branches; it is for any body of people that are a “group” (like a household, or archers, or Constables, etc.)

When one is weary from traveling, the dust of the road dry upon one's feet and the day faded long into the night, there is nothing more welcoming than a warm hearth complete with good companionship around a fire. Thus it is with great pleasure that We, «Prince», Prince by right of arms and «Princess», Our Princess, recognize the hospitality of the «Group Name» and bestow upon them the Award of the Hearth. «Group Name» is granted all rights and responsibilities appertaining thereto, including the right to bear the badge of the Award of the Hearth. This We do on this «Date> day of «Month», A.S. «Year», while sitting on Our thrones in Our «Place name».
