Greetings unto the Kingdom from the Lochac College of Heralds,
Of which I am the figurehead, but it is worth remembering that the College includes all gentles pursuing the Arts of Heraldry in our fine Khanate, and I am thankful for the combined efforts that result in such excellent pageantry and pomp as we see at all our events.
This month, I welcome the assistance of several new deputies:
Baryl Herald – Baron Sorle Maknicoll
Rocket Herald – Lord Brian dorcha ua Conaill
Bombarde Herald – Baroness Blodeuwedd y Gath
For those not familiar with the titles borne by Kingdom heralds, Baryl is my drop dead deputy, Rocket is the Kingdom submissions herald, and Bombarde is the Kingdom ceremonies herald. Baroness Blod is ably assisted in revising the Kingdom’s ceremonies by Master Padraig Lowther (whose deputy title is still in the works).
As always, it is my great pleasure to announce the successful heraldic registrations announced this month by Laurel King of Arms.
