[ANSTHRLD] Militant Heralds

Hilary is exactly right that "scribes is heralds" is Ansteorran-specific, 
and not even all Ansteorran scribes realize it.

Mahdi was a shire herald, and Rowan passed the Pursuivant Extraordinary test 
back in the early nineties.  I've never heard the terms "militant herald" or 
"militant scribe".  We're heralds.  We are in the militant arm of the 
Ansteorran College of Heralds.  (It doesn't mean anything, so there's no 
point trying to define it.)
