From the Dragon Herald – Outgoing

Greetings unto the populace of the Middle Kingdom from Konrad Mailander, Dragon Herald,

One last missive as Dragon Herald before I pass the office to Jean Yves.

His Lordship Damian Nihthauk is the new Shield Herald, taking over for Jean Yves as he steps up as Dragon. Shield is the office responsible for seeing organizing consulting and submission points at large events.

I will be taking back the office of Rouge Scarpe Herald for the time being. Rouge Scarpe is the external submissions herald for the Middle. Rouge Scarpe makes decisions on heraldic submissions at the Kingdom level and creates the External Letter of Intent for those items that move on to Society level. We are still looking for someone to take this office longer term. If you are interested in serving the College of Herald in this role let me know.

It has been a pleasure serving the Kingdom in this role. Thank you all for the opportunity. Good luck to Jean Yves, may he find it as fulfilling as I did.
