This is the roster of active heralds in the Kingdom of Lochac. Active, in this sense, means they have completed the last Herald Census or have subsequently completed the Roster Details Form. The last Census was held in May AS54 (May 2019). Clicking on the image will email that officer. Names that are links will take you to the person’s Canon Lore entry, clicking on the image next to a name will take you to their Roll of Arms entry. Explanation of rank and skills found after the roster.
If you wish to be added to the roster, please complete the Roster Details Form. Please see Lochac Heraldic Policy for the requirements to be a rostered herald. If you believe you are worthy of the rank of Pursuivant, please considered completing the Pursuivant Readiness Portfolio.
Note: the roster, as described above, is currently undergoing repair, so at this time only the heraldic officers of the Kingdom are displayed via the Regnumator. Please be patient as this technical glitch is worked out.

There are three levels of personal heraldic rank in Lochac: Macer, Pursuivant and Herald.
The rank of Pursuivant is given to those who have shown basic knowledge and competence in heraldry, while the rank of Herald is given to those of greater expertise. Macer is used to describe those who have not yet qualified for either personal ranking (it replaces the old term “Cornet” which should be avoided). Movement between the various ranks is at the discretion of the Crux Australis Principal Herald.
Heralds who currently hold an office (the so called “in-ordinary” heralds) take a title that depends on their position. Baronial heralds and heralds on Crux’s staff may style themselves as “X Herald” for the duration of their office, where X is the appropriate heraldic title. Group heralds for other groups (Shires, Cantons and Colleges) should describe themselves as “Group-name Pursuivant” for the duration of their warrant. All other Pursuivants and Heralds are listed as “extra-ordinary” (literally “out of ordinary”, meaning holding no official post).
The skills columns in the general roster indicates self-identified experience in the various areas of heralding: voice (general announcements, can shout a bit); court (knows about ceremonies, has spoken for the Crown before); field (has announced bouts at tournaments); names (has been consulted on registering a name with the College of Arms to some extent); and armory (has been consulted on designing and registering a device to some extent). Levels of experience may vary, but it’s a place to start for help.
