Line Art Requirements for Armory

Greetings to the East Kingdom College of Heralds, from Anéžka Blue Tyger!

The following update to the process for armory submissions at the Society level appeared on the December 2022 LoAR:

This month we discussed the role of the line art in our armory submission process. We asked commenters to consider whether or not we still need the line art at the Society level: should it be removed entirely, or considered optional, especially given that the line art generally does not influence registration of the colored emblazon.

After much consideration, we are declaring the line art emblazon on the Letter of Intent optional, effective immediately, at the Society level. Kingdoms may choose to require the line art form and emblazon, keep them optional, or drop them entirely. The line art form is already not required at Society.

This update allows each kingdom to decide whether or not to require the line art form and emblazon, keep them optional, or drop them entirely.

As of now, the policy of the Blue Tyger office is that line art continues to be required for armory submissions in the East.

If the creation of the line art form and emblazon for your submission is a hardship, please reach out either to me or to my deputies ( and we’ll work with you.

Thank you all for your work.

In service to College and Kingdom,

Staffing Updates

Unto the heralds of the East, greetings!

I have been remiss to not inform you of a number of staffing changes in the Blue Tyger office over the past several months.

Mistress Alys Mackyntoich has stepped down as Blue Tyger Herald, and it has been my great honor to step up as her successor. I hope to serve with anything approaching the diligence and grace that she did.

Maryna Borowska has stepped down as Mosaic Herald (Kingdom notifications), and while Violet Mural did an excellent job covering that position for several months, she is back to only one set of responsibilities, as Esterke bas Simcha has stepped up as Mosaic.

Jeanne de Robin has stepped down as Blue Alaunt Herald (Tir Mara submissions), and Conn mac Branain has stepped up.

I am grateful to all these gentles for their hard work, and I am glad for the honor of working with such a competent and motivated staff.
