CALONTIR Gold Falcon Herald

Missive from the Principal Herald of Calontir

Greetings to one and all!

I’m excited to serve as the twenty-first Gold Falcon for the Kingdom of Calontir. My predecessors have developed our College of Heralds into a very knowledgeable and helpful resource for anyone who needs our assistance. I look forward to building upon this work.

Besides the continued work with name and armory submissions, I want to encourage others to explore field heraldry. We have a small nucleus of strong vocal heralds for both tournaments and camp criers, but we must encourage and develop others in this important branch of heraldry.

As was said in my installation, I “shall do your true duty to be every day more cunning than others in the office of arms, so as you may be better furnished to teach others under you, answer to others above you, and execute with more wisdom and eloquence such charges as Their Majesties or of any noble person shall lay unto you by the virtue of this office.” As such, I am always available to help or teach as needed, as are my deputies. Please contact me at goldfalcon@calontir.org with any questions, concerns, or requests for help.

Ich hilfe,
Brigida Gold Falcon

While most of the populace is familiar with the work of the College of Heralds through consultations on names & armory and vocally in court & at camp, there is a lot of administrative work that goes into making these activities happen seemlessly.
