Many people wait until Pennsic to visit Herald’s Point to try to register their name and armory. Mistress Alys Mackyntioch reminds us that for Easterners, this is not the best strategy. The East gets between 150 and 200 submissions from Pennsic, substantially more than any other Kingdom, and substantially more than is possible to review in a single month. We can do a meaningful review of only about 50 submissions a month (again, substantially more than any other Kingdom), so submissions done near the end of Pennsic may not get to the first level of review until November. If you want to get a name or armory done, do it now before Pennsic. Requests for assistance can be sent by e-mail to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Also, Herald’s Point is always looking for volunteers. Even if you know little or nothing about heraldry, we need people to draw and color armory submissions, help greet people and manage the line, and do administrative work to free up heralds for consults.
