Good Gentles-

Per Baron Daibhid's great suggestion that my description of this project is less than clear, I'm sending you a link to the Kingdom of An Tir's Roll of Arms, maintained by their College of Heralds.  This is the basic idea of what I'm looking to do, only on a more local level.  (Eventually, the hope is that the Midrealm will have something similarly comprehensive, but, as they say, Rome wasn't built in a day.)

Please contact me with questions regarding this project.

Re: [Cynnabar] Lend Me Your Arms!  (Take 2) Hi.

Good work.

A simple suggestion, maybe not easy, but to sell your idea, your very good idea:

Make up a mockup of your proposed roll of arms, with blamk shields for those you have not received yet. Post it every now and then to incentivize those who are still represented by blanks (grey, not white).

Actually, I myself do not have a clear idea of your end product.

Greetings, good gentles!

I am compiling a Cynnabar Roll of Arms, but I can't do it without you!

I request that members of the populace who have devices and badges registered please send me digital copies of said items along with their blazons (if known).  I've included a disclaimer, below, if you don't want to write your own.  You'll have to fill in your name, obviously.  Also, please provide the current email address where you would like us to contact you, if it's different from the one getting the barony list-mail.

If you only have a paper copy of your submission, please bring it to me at a Monday Meeting (if at all possible) and I will take it home, scan it, and get it back to you in a timely fashion (like, normal people "timely" not SCA "timely").  Alternatively, if you can email me the blazon (or a description), I will reconstruct the device to the best of my ability.  In this instance, I will still need the release quoted below.

Thank you, in advance, for your participation and assistance!  I welcome any and all questions, comments or concerns about this project.
