Takauji jibukyo, Gold Falcon Herald

Unto the Heralds of the Noble Kingdom of Calontir,

It is my honor to step in to the office of Gold Falcon that has been so ably and diligently served by so many talented people in our Kingdom's history. My goal is largely the same as Konstantia's was: To keep the light of heraldry going in the heart of the Kingdom, and to make sure our College continues the tradition of collegiality and client advocacy that has defined it.

The goal of heralds at every level should be to educate and inspire, and if anyone is doing particularly well or is falling short please contact me at GoldFalcon@calontir.org.

I want to see all of your heraldic enterprises. Banners, displays, ceremonies; share them with me, share them with your fellow Heralds, and share them with the Kingdom. I've challenged everyone to do something heraldic at one event per month--let's make sure everyone sees the beauty and pageantry of our Kingdom.

In Service to the Crown, the Kingdom, and the Dream,
Takauji jibukyo
Gold Falcon Herald

Administrative and Herald-Only Content

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. Heralds, if you need the nitty-gritty, you'll find it right here.
