[ANSTHRLD] Extending the Metaphor to Hyperbole

Like a Paliament of Owls, I would still vote for any large general grouping of heralds to be a conflict of heralds (as Emma noted).  Not that it matters much but I like the humor in it.

I really did like your thought that voice heralds could be considered an Orle (so close to oral) of heralds.

As for the the small group or large group and deciding where the line is drawn...  That is up to the Precedence heralds.  They have to decide where to draw the line and who is "beyond the pale."

At xXx we mused ...
A group of Voice Heralds is an Orle of Heralds,
A group of Precedence Heralds is a Pale of Heralds and
A group of Commentary Heralds is a Saltire of Heralds.

I guess that makes a small mixed group a Subordinary and a large mixed group an Ordinary of Heralds, but where's the line of division (and is it simple or complex)?


Post Scriptum: The Voice Heraldry I heard at xXx and Cown Tourney was fantastic.  Well done all.
