The Cordon Scorpion is a way for the Barony of al-Barran to recognize the rapier fighters of the Barony who travel to Estrella War (or other foriegn wars) and fight for the good of the Barony and Kingdom. To receive the award, a fencer must petition the Baron and Baroness on their own behalf by the deadline set by the Excellencies. The only requirements for the petition are that the Baron and Baroness names, al-Barran, and Cordon Scorpion be spelt correctly on the petition and of course that the petitioner go and fight at the war. Many fencers use this as an opportunity to show case their sense of humour and/or their skills at a chosen art. The cordon is awarded at the war during Guido Court. The cordon is made by the ladies of al-Barran of gold, black, and white cords woven together. It is often, but not always, this symbol that shows a fencer in the Barony to be a veteran.
