In this section of The Library, you’ll find reference material to assist in heralding and heraldic knowledge. This material may include articles published elsewhere, articles written specifically for this site, or handouts and notes from classes at events that were deemed useful for wider distribution.
Currently this collection includes:
- How to be a good consulting herald by ffrw (Mistress) ffride wlffsdotter.
These lesson notes were for a class taught at Politarchopolis University in 2016. Reproduced with the kind permission of the author.
- Court in the Act by Lady Amanda Martel.
In 2012, the (then newly) ex-Cordon Rouge Herald wrote a missive to her successor on how to ‘do’ Court. Reproduced with the kind permission of the author.
- Who runs the Courts? Heralds! or: Court Heralding 101 by Baron Sorle Maknicoll, Crux Australis Principal Herald.
In the second year of his term as Crux, Baron Sorle produced this handout for a class at Rowany Festival in 2018. It covers his ideas for ‘best practice’ as a Court Herald, focusing on the fact that actually heralding Court is just one small part of the role.
