Being A Herald
You don't have to be a branch herald in order to take part in the activities of the An Tir College of Heralds. Anyone with an interest in heraldry is encouraged to "come and play", and become a herald-at-large.
Heraldic activities fall into two broad categories: Voice and Book. Voice heralds are involved in doing court, announcing combat on the lists field, and making announcements at events. Book heralds do research into medieval names, devices, ceremonies and regalia, and assist the populace in registering their names and devices with the College of Arms.
Book Heralds must like doing research and have access to basic research materials. They often participate in Consulting Tables at events where members of the populace can come for advice and feedback on names and devices.
If you are interested in participating in any heraldic activity, feel free to contact your friendly local herald, stop by Herald's Point or the Consulting Table at any event, or contact the Black Lion Herald of An Tir (listed in The Crier) and ask for more information.
