At the present time I intend to have a consultation table there, yes. I
have to coordinate that with the autocrat, whom I will see tomorrow. I know I
also need to contact someone about having additional resource materials
(besides my own meager supply) there, but I have forgotten who that is.

As far as the device, depending on the relative size of the two charges,
consider "Vert, a decrescent maintaining from its upper horn a bell argent".

Two related issues, here, hope you don't mind the inquiry.
Does anyone know if a Heralds consultation table will be at Winterkingdom
in the Barony of Northkeep?
A friend currently preparing a device for submission is under the
impression there usually is one, but we don't know for certain whether or not to
expect one this year. I can't find any reference to one.
The reason he is wanting a consultation table is this - he seems to have a
good, strong, clean idea for a device, but the exact wording of the blazon
is proving to be a bit of a snare.
He is wanting a silver crescent (descrescent - facing the viewers right)
and he wants a silver bell hanging inside the crescent, attached to the
upper curve of the crescent, all on a green field.
The closest I can come is this; "Vert, a bell dependant within a
Is that correct?
The placement of "dependant" and "within" in the description is my
concern. When an object is not only hanging from another, but is hanging from a
particular place on that object, I lose my way when it comes to blazoning.
I believe this has an excellent chance of passing. The only close call I
could locate in the ordinary is "Vert, a decrescent with a bordure indented
argent", registered to a Carl of Sutherland in 1982.
I have no idea what is currently under submission, but this friend is
willing to add an orle argent or a double tressure argent, if need be.
Personal note? Cool charge, very recognizable.
My thanks for your time on this matter.
