This is the second of a series of educational articles about heraldry in Calontir.
Calontir has a fairly robust cadre of local heralds and a strong contingent of heralds-at-large who are ready to help with researching and registering names and devices.
But we recognize that sometimes you just can’t get to the consult table at an event with all the other great things going on. And it can be a challenge to pigeon-hole your local herald at a meeting long enough to hammer out some good ideas.
So, we are offering a brand new service – the Calontir Virtual Consult Table.
The Virtual Consult Table is a place where Calontiri with questions about heraldry can request a herald to work with them on-line to research a name, design a device, and get through the submission paperwork.
If you would like to use the Calontir Virtual Consult Table, go to the Virtual Consult Request Form.
You should receive an email from your assigned consulting herald within two weeks.
After your consultation, please let us know how we did and if you have suggestions for improvement with the Virtual Consult Feedback Form.
Heralds who are interested in helping with Virtual Consults do not have to be “senior” heralds or even “experienced” heralds. You just have to have to be service-oriented, familiar with the key resources (especially SENA and the Calontir Heralds Handbook) and able to ask other heralds for help when you find yourself with a question you can’t answer. And, of course, you need to have reliable email service. Virtual Consult Volunteer Form.
When you finish a Virtual Consult, please report back so the Herald-in-Charge knows you’re ready for a new client: Virtual Consult Heralds Report Form.
The Calontir Virtual Consult Table is in beta testing at the moment, but if all goes well, it will find a permanent home on the Calontir Heralds website. For now, you can find it here:
Please try it out!
