Greetings once more to all my fellow heralds. I
apologize if my earlier missive seemed rather rushed
or curt - I was down to my last two minutes on the
library's computer and wanted to get it off ASAP.
Here's a little clarification on what I'm working with
This is what I know/suspect so far
- I'm responsible for processing all name/device/badge
submissions in the barony. Each device/badge
submission requires 5(?) copies in color and 5(?)
line-drawing copies, and each name submission requires
5(?) copies w/documentation. Each new submission
costs $9; re-submissions are free. One copy of each
submission stays in the baronial herald's files; all
others (with payment from the reeve/exchecquer) goes
to the regional herald (I think; or is it kingdom?)
- No documentation is required for devices or badges
(except possibly to show that a creature such as a
Virginia opossum or an alligator was known in period).
Name submissions, I believe require documentation to
show that each element of the name was used in period,
in the form and combination style used in the
submission. If cross-cultural/linguistic names are
submitted (such as Sean Ghandhi), documentation must
show that the cultures had appropriate contact in
That's all I can think of top of my head. Any
corrections, elaborations, or additional information
will be of great value.
Yours in service,
Andre de Chartres
