Courts are a very important part of SCA culture, and as you may know, the Herald is the voice of the Crown or any Sitting Noble holding Court. There are those among the populace who cannot hear Their Voice, and need another to speak in a language they can understand, that being sign language, or as it is called in the SCA, Silent Heraldry.
Items of note:
A Silent Herald is not a detraction from Court, but an enhancement as it allows more members of the populace to understand and fully interact with a notable part of the SCA experience. A Silent Herald will answer to the Sitting Noble, as does Their Vocal Herald, and must also balance the needs of the members of the Populace, so all may share the wonderful experience that is the SCA.
