Re: coat of arms

That is not an opinion. Arms should be registered to use them within the
context of the SCA.
Should is not MUST. Feel free to cite chapter and verse of Society law that
context of the SCA. When I registered my arms I took the right to be known
by that heraldry. I do not wish to know of others doing deeds in the SCA
with my heraldic name. To disregard this rule is as rude as wearing elf ears
to an event. If I saw someone with a spiff design that was in blatent
conflict with mine I would first ask politely that they change it and try to
register it. If they refused I would head to the best herald I know and
lodge a formal complaint. You might feel the same way if someone was using
your SS#, your licence plate, or your credit card.
You, sadly, are quite mistaken. And no herald could do a thing about it.
The registration of arms, in period, was the exception and not the rule.
Check out the fine research by Pedro de Alcazar.
