Most of the following opening phrases are from the An Tir Scribal pages http://scribes.antir.sca.org/Scribes/altopenphrase.html. Please feel free to add new phrases. Note that some phrases below are designed for the name of the recipient to be in the first sentence; a greeting from the Crown is required in the text (though it does not need to be in the first line). Make sure the text of the scroll flows and contains all the required elements.
