Hark the Heretical Herald V1:1

The Heretical Herald Volume 1 Issue 1 February 11, AS XXXVIII being 2004 AD

Hark the Heretical Herald.

Setting the tone for The Heretical Herald this Premier Issue includes a number of articles. The first “What’s Good Contrast?” is the first of a number of simple educational pieces aimed at the novice to Heraldry. “But I Really Wanted Sanguine!” is an article on a novel approach to the problem of a client who really wants to use a colour or pattern that just is not allowed in SCA Heraldry. The solution is fairly straightforward and does not require any special permission, research, or documentation. “Cant Do That!” announces the start of a contest challenging readers to find interesting “canting arms” in the An Tir Roll of Arms and other Rolls of Arms both SCA and Real World. “Scentual Submissions” is an short article on choices when selecting just what to use when colouring in your heraldic submission form.

For now the staff of The Heretical Herald is only “one”. That means that only one person is writing all the copy that is coming out as well as being responsible for editing, publishing, promoting, bookkeeping, and whatever else might come up. I hope in time that this might change though not too quickly. I would like to at least stay in editorial control for some time. The state of affairs of the rather limited staff however is the reason behind why The Heretical Herald might be a bit intermittent in publication to start off with. I hope that this will eventually change.

I’m not sure how much fresh material is available to keep this publication going in the long term, but I am sure there is enough for a number of issues. In any case, I am planning on keeping an archive of back issues available and perhaps updated and improved as warranted.

Please let me know if you would like to reprint any articles or items you find in this publication in your own publication or another. I’ll most likely give permission, but I would like to be asked.

Thank you for taking the time for reading this and I hope you find it useful and entertaining.
