Unto the Kingdom of Lochac, greetings.
Name and device registration in the Kingdom of Lochac continues with good work by the Populace and the heralds who support them. This list comes from the November 2016 Letters of Acceptance and Return (LoAR). But wait, I hear some of you exclaim, it’s nearly Feburary! Correct, imaginary interlocutor. The decision was made at the Society level in November, but there are a couple of months for ‘proof-reading’ before the results are released back to the Kingdoms. Despite this, it is still the ‘November’ decisions. Why do I mention this? Understanding process is useful at times, because it can be hard to see the benefit of what looks like a tortured arrangement. This particular letter came out with a mistake – it had to be corrected and the LoAR sent out AGAIN the following day. Even with two months’ proofreading, mistakes happen. We want to be accurate – name and device registrations identify members of the populace throughout the Known World. We want to get it right!
So, without further preamble, here are the registrations that have come back successful for this month:
Amanda Martel. Name and badge. (Fieldless) A war hammer Or enfiling a masculyn argent.

Huzzah to those who were successful!
In service to the Crown and Kingdom of Lochac, always.
