As the webminister is also a herald (currently the Fenris or Pentamere Herald,) this is a site he thinks everyone should visit. This is the SCA College of Arms on the Web.
As it says on the home page "Welcome to the website of the SCA College of Arms! Heralds in the Society for Creative Anachronism have many jobs.
We are fondly called book heralds, helping to research period naming and armorial practices for the registration of names and armory for the populace.
We are voice heralds, calling announcements, proclaiming who is fighting upon the field, and acting as the voice of nobility in court.
We are protocol heralds, recording awards and honors bestowed, drafting ceremonies, and determining precedence and other period legal niceties in all sorts of situations.
We also work closely with our good friends in the College of Scribes, whose art and artistry with pen and brush make what we do beautiful.
Anyone can be a herald. You can be a herald!
This is one of the many households of the SCA. Many of the members of the the canton belong to this household, which is led by the Knight: Baron Sir Osric Eisenwulf, member and protector of the Canton.
Quote from the homepage of the website: "The Purpose of the Middle Kingdom Equestrian College is the promotion of both participation in, and study of, equestrian activities and subjects in the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), particularly the historical role and utilization of horses and their ilk in the ancient and medieval worlds. While based in the Middle Kingdom, anyone of any realm is welcome to participate in its activities, should they share our desire to study and develop skill in the areas of horsemanship, mounted martial prowess, equine studies, and/or equestrian related arts and sciences, and are willing to abide by our kingdom and college laws."
