Unto the Barony of Forgotten Sea, and all vassals and honored guests, Greetings! from Dorcas Whitecap.
Starting February 5th and continuing the first Thursday of every month for the next good while, everyone is invited to come work on creating a heraldic roll of arms for the barony.
A roll of arms is a collection of the heraldry of some group of people. The Calontir online Armorial http://armorial.calontir.org/ is one example of a modern roll of arms. In this project, we will paint the devices of the BFS populace onto individual triangle-shaped pennants. These pennants can then be brought out at events to decorate the site and generally add to the period atmosphere. We'll start with the devices of the current and previous baronages of Forgotten Sea, then do current populace members. Ultimately, I'd like to paint pennants for everyone who has ever called Forgotten Sea their home! This could take a while...
The first step is to trace the heraldry onto fabric, which must then be finished around the edges. Once that is done, a pennant can be painted. The monthly Thursday nights at the library will be mostly for tracing and sewing. Painting will be done at fighter practice.
If you have a sewing machine, an opaque projector, or even just a steady hand, come join us. If you are interested in painting a banner for yourself, outside of this BFS roll of arms project, you are welcome to share the space, and get advice and ideas. See you there!
