Recommended Posts

Beloved Citizens and Friends,

 

Due to the departure of Lord Kjolsgard from the micronational world the office of Longships King of Arms is currently vacant.

 

Would anyone like to volunteer himself for this position?

Sir Polten,

 

The duties of the Kings of Arms are laid down in the following Articles of the Heraldry Act of 2004.

 

X. There shall be three Kings of Arms: the Longships King of Arms, the Spindle King of Arms and the Breisingamen King of Arms. The Longships King of Arms shall be the senior Officer of Arms; He shall lead the daily operations of the Court of the Herald Marshal; The Spindle King of Arms is the second most senior Officer of Arms; The Breisingamen King of Arms shall be the third most senior Officer of Arms.

 

XI. All Kings of Arms shall be appointed by and shall serve at the pleasure of the Herald Marshal of Stormark. The Herald Marshall may also appoint other officials as may be required for the daily operation of the Court of the Herald Marshal. He may also dismiss any official of the Court of the Herald Marshal at pleasure.

 

XII. The Herald Marshal may appoint honorary Officers of Arms who shall not have the powers nor the duties of the ordinary Officers of Arms.

 

XIII. Any King of Arms may appoint Heralds of Arms and Pursuivants of Arms to assist him in his duties.

Are there any plans to revive the Court of the Herald Marshal?

Well, I have plans to introduce a number of reforms concerning this Imperial Institution.

 

In my plans the Court of the Herald Marshal would be replaced by a Heralds Thing or Honours Thing controlled a body of President and Fellows. The Thing would have a number of branches such as a College of Arms, a College of Banners and a College of Chivalry.

Sounds very good! thumbsup.gif

 

It would be cool if you would grant the officers of the Heraldsthing all kind of lofty and archaic titles like Lord Chronicler of Arms, Lord Chief Heraldist, Lord President of the College of Arms, Lord Chronicler Clerk, etc.

Of course!! Stormark wouldn't be Stormark without cool titles, would it? biggrin.gif

 

I would also incorporate modified versions of the titles of Office of the current Officers of Arms such as Spinde King of Banners and Breisingamen King of Chivalry.
