The Shire of Amlethsmor

Office of the Herald of the Shire of Amlethsmor

Lady Jade of Winterhold

The Amlethsmor Herald also called the Amlethsmor Pursuivant takes care of the registration of names and devices. It is desirable that each SCA member have a unique name so that they are not confused with someone else. In addition, to be registered a name must be one that someone could have had during the Middle Ages, and is unique to that person's persona's time and place. A device is what is commonly known as a "coat of arms." Every member of the SCA can register a device, but as with names, a device must be unique, and be of the sort a person in the Middle Ages might have used. As such the Pursivant aids in reasearching names and designing devices. The Herald also serves as the voice of the Shire making formal announcements at meetings, serving as a camp crier at events, and making announcements during tournaments. In addition, the Pursuivant keeps track of what awards Shire members have won and arranges Shire members in order of rank in the Order of Precedence. Finally, the Herald teaches others about heraldry, and encourages others to take part in heraldric display such as on shields and banners. The current Herald of Amlethsmor is Jade of Winterhold and she can be reached at Pursuivant at
