No Offence Taken.... I'm just going off of what I've seen at a few
events.... I appreciate any and all opinions.

If I may give my opinion (and I may),


No offense, but I personally -- not officially, as if Estencele holds any
official weight :) -- find this style an abomination.

There is a period style for how to dress your herald: dress him or her in
the device of whatever it is he or she is speaking on behalf of (you, if
it's your herald; your group, if it's your group herald; etc.)  Quartering
it with the crossed trumpets is simply a gaudy crutch for the heraldically

On a side note, removing the laurel wreath from your group's device makes it
no longer your group's device.

I encourage you with all the energy I have to make a tabard of your group's
device and drape it upon your herald.  I promise you it will look great, be
a period practice, and gather accolades for your group.

As for a badge, I have no opinion since I'm not sure what the purpose of
having a badge for an individual group herald is.

and his pet, Peeve
