Change in Heraldic Titles in the East Kingdom

badge HeraldGood gentles all, greetings from Ryan, Brigantia Principal Herald,

There has been a problem brewing for several years as the East Kingdom has modernized. This problem is with one of our longest standing Heraldic Titles. The Eastern Crown Herald has been the primary Submissions Herald for the Kingdom of the East. The title is derived from the heraldic charge The Eastern Crown, which is a specific type of crown which is displayed both in the Heraldry of the Kingdom and the Badge of the Order of the Silver Crescent.

As time has gone on the title Eastern Crown Herald has been misinterpreted in several ways. Some have taken it to refer to the herald of the Crown of the East, the lead herald of a reign. Some have confused it with the Principal Herald of the East. Continue reading

A missive from His Majesty of Acre

Damien from Acre

 

Unto Our Beloved Allies of the East, Joyous Greetings;

It is an auspicious time for the East. On the tail of the magnificent reign of glorious Kenric and most noble Avelina comes the trumpets of Empire. Thus do mighty Brennan Augustus and radiant Caoilfhionn Augusta assume their rightful place as rulers of this glorious kingdom!

We in Acre do stand in awe and with happy hearts!

We, Damien Rex and Tara Regina, by right of blood and arms King and Queen of Acre, felt blessed to have simply been there to see it. Indeed, we would have accepted simply that and called it fortune beyond avarice. But Their Majesties are most generous, for they as well as Their Excellencies Baron Erec and Baroness Jehannine of Settmour Swamp received us as honored guests, honoring us with a place beside them in Court and among them at High Table, to enjoy the fine and unrivaled fare that only those of the East could provide. For this, for their great friendship, and for so much more, mere gratitude will never be enough. We count ourselves most fortunate indeed to be among your allies, and that we may together make deeper and mightier still the historic friendship between us. Indeed, any who call themselves an enemy of the East will be forced to meet the swords of Acre beside you all and face the folly of their choice to defy the Empire of the Tyger!

The future is bright indeed. Many a great song will be sung and happy tale will be told in the times to come as these most august and resplendent sovereigns forge their immortal legacies in the hearts of their beloved subjects and allies, and carve it upon their enemies’ many graves.

Long live Brennan and Caoilfhionn, and great may they rule! And long live the East! Vivat!

Yours in Eternal Friendship,
Damien
King of Acre

Posted on behalf of Baronne Sabine de Kerbriant

Bonjour mes amis!

Noisemakers IX is coming up in less than two weeks, and I’d like to invite everyone to take a look at the amazing list of classes and workshops! In addition to our commedia dell’arte track, we’re excited to offer a wide array of heraldry, music, storytelling, and language classes spanning beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. Please also keep in mind the performance challenges (try something new in a very supportive setting!) and our baronial bardic competition, as well as the Pellycan roadshow.

Also, the menu for Lady Livia’s Roman dayboard is now posted. Please do take a look, and be advised that some dishes will contain rue (alternate versions without rue will be available for almost all items, although the online menu may not yet reflect that).

Check out all the details at the Noisemakers website.

Each year on April 1st, the heralds of the Known World (specifically, within the College of Heralds Imaginary), join together in an effort of wonderment and silliness known as the April Fool’s LoI for each Kingdom in the Society. This year, the Office of the Tyger Clerk of the Signet is pleased to have offered the scribes of the East Kingdom to participate, by taking the devices from these various Letters of Intent (LoI), and creating suitable achievements of Arms (with supporters, mantling, etc.) for one entry each, excluding any direct references to commercial or licensed images.
