You know, Michael, it is just this sort of stupid post that gets you 
flamed all the time...just like now. You know nothing about heraldry, 
you know nothing about "what the people want" in heraldry. And you 
don't care...all you want is what Litch wants...and that is a PURE EGO 
TRIP. If you want to play in a FANTASY GAME then go away and do so. 
Don't bother anyone here with your petty, small, whinings about "what 
I want..." If you don't like the game we are playing or the Society 
that we strive to make the most authentic AND fun pastime we 
can...leave, start your own group...play your game your way...just 
don't bother us anymore.
