Re: MR-Disc: Registration of Arms

Poster: Mark Schuldenfrei <schuldy@abel.MATH.HARVARD.EDU>

   When you make a banner of your arms to display at a large interkingdom event,
  be sure to include the badge of your kingdom in the hoist, to distinguish
  your banner from those with the same arms in other kingdoms.

Hmmm.  This might be considered, by some, an affront, for some Kingdoms use
variants on their arms as augmentations.  Those are given as distinguishing
honors.  Heraldically, it's a bit like putting a Ducal Coronet on your head.

There is no real period method of doing the above, that pops to my mind.
Perhaps there is one I am not thinking of.

I'd rather see the "pseudo-problem" of too many people bearing too much period
style armory, than the current system of people being afraid to fly arms in
case they offend someone...  I point out the above issue of potential offense,
only so people know what they are doing, not to structure things.
