It has been suggested that a searchable wiki for SCA Heraldry would be useful. And when the subject comes up, it is determined that, ideally, someone with knowledge of Wiki programming should take on this project, hosting it at a secure server that "we" own and control. This is not that, but it's cheap, it's simple, and it's easy to backup.


If you have some competence in SCA Heraldry and would like to help, you're welcome to join in!

Templates have been created for your use (you are automatically given the opportunity to choose a template as you create a new page). Entries should refrain from personal opinions, and should generally quote from official SCA Heralds documents such as the Standards for Evaluation of Names and Armory (SENA), the Glossary of Terms, Laurel Precedents, Letters of Acceptances and Returns, and other recognized references. The original sources should be clearly noted and, if possible, linked.
