Variant displays
posted by: Daniel the Broc on 2017-07-06
So some may have noticed that I've drawn some entries into the roll on different shapes. The most recent and notable example is Sir Angar's (http://heraldry.avacal.org/rollofarms/display.php?id=2702) but there are some others sprinkled hither and yon. \n Despite the fact that the actual form uses the standard estucteon (Heater) shape, that's just an administrative thing to make the actual process easier. You do not -have- to display it like that. Any simple geometric shape is considered "Fair game for heraldic display", because that is how it was done in period. A Lord may have a giant shield hanging above his door-way with his arms, but it was extremely common to repeat his arms on things like square glass panes in the window, lozenge tile-work (especially for Women who were armigers in Thier Own Right) and on their fancy dinnerware (extremely late and post period) If anyone wishes that their entry in the online roll be done in a different geomtic shape than the standard heater, please contact me op@avacal.org with that request and I'll try to accommodate it as best I can.
Fixed!

As of June, I have taken over the ability to create and update this Roll of Arms. It is still a learning process, and while mistakes will be made, I am an expert at blaming others. If you have specific concerns, please raise them and I will tackle them as I am able. Daniel the Broc Op Herald, Avacal
