At one war consulting tent I was trying
to gently explain a color-on-color problem
with a design a client had bought in.
She calmly informed me that I must be
mistaken because she had talked with
Master Modar and he had told her the
design was okay. The entire group of
folks in the tent (both heralds and clients
who knew me) grew absolutely quiet.
Now, I had never spoken to this gentle
before and it was obvious she didn't
know who I was. The first thing that
ran thru my mind was, "Don't embarrass
her...it won't hep the image of the heralds."
So I proceeded to ask her to let me show
her the current set of rules, saying that
-perhaps- something could have changed
since the design was last looked at. I pulled
out the RfS and explained the color on color
problem, suggested flipping a couple
tinctures to solve the problem. She loved
the idea and even said she thought the
design looked better with the tinctures
switched. We did a conflict check and
she went happily on her way. The design
has since been registered. But leaving that
day she had no idea that she had told
Modar he was mistaken because Modar
had told her otherwise.
So does anyone else have a consultation
incident to relate?
(who was once called by a Laurel Sovereign
to explain why a submission form had
"Modar said it would pass" written on it)
