Web Site Update
As of this writing, every LoAR (though
not every cover letter) from January 1984 to date is now up as
well as assorted earlier ones. It is our hope to have them all
up by the end of the year. We are also working on getting all
the precedents up, and now have the precedents on the tenures
of: Baldwin, the first year of Da'ud's first tenure, Bruce, and
the first year of Da'ud's second tenure. We hope to have all
of the precedents through the end of Da'ud's second tenure up
by the end of this year as well.
There are assorted name and armory articles
up, as well as assorted other educational materials, including
a copy of the 1984 rules for educational purposes only;
we are not advocating returning to them. If anyone has
any ideas or articles that they feel should be added to the website,
please contact us, or Master Gawain who is in charge of heraldic
The website is there to help everyone,
so please, help, ideas and useful articles would be appreciated.
