What is Herald's Pointe?:
In AS 42 (March 2008), we held the first Herald's Pointe. The purpose of
Herald's Pointe is to provide the populace of the Middle Kingdom, as well as
other realms, the opportunity to get their personal cognizance (also called
personal device, emblazon or arms) evaluated for registry with the College of
Heralds of the SCA. We can tell you whether it fits within the parameters
selected by the SCA for registry, as well as whether another person has
registered the emblazon as their cognizance.
In addition, the heralds can assist you in developing a name that fits your
SCA persona. It can be registered with your emblazon.
The Herald's Pointe is to provide an opportunity to meet with heralds without
the distractions of other events. No need to rush between A&S classes,
tournament bouts, etc., just the heralds and you.
If you are a new
herald, want to become a herald or interested in heraldry, here is an opportunity
to learn about heraldry in the Middle Kingdom. Classes for court and voice
heralds are planned as well. A herald's roundtable is also planned.
