Okay Michael of Litchfield what game is it you are playing within the
SCA. You don't seem to want to play with the established rules. So
what is your motive.
I was heartened by your reply to my lord about how things were so bad
for you and could understand your defensiveness and disenchantment.
I have been embittered and disenchanted repeatedly.
You drew out another sucker (me) who like many sees the stupidity and
strife and then works within the system to try to change them.
A lot of the things the College of Heralds does may seem stupid and
some of the things that are done are stupid. But each action taken is
based on comments in our kindom and goes up to Laurel based on those
comments. The best way to beat that in the system is to work within
it. The new Herald's handbook should be available from the Kindom
stock clerk soon. The rules for submission are available from the SCA
Marketplace for a small fee. Learn the rules study the heraldry of the
SCA. There are lots of ways to define your persona story on your
device and still stay within the system. They sure as hell did it in
period. Send your own analysis of devices and names (you can get the
kingdom herald's newsletter for $12 @ year from Star), to Peronelle
to be collated with everyone else's (nasty remarks will be edited).
