Herald

Oddr’s Aspilogia

1 hour

Have you wanted to learn the Complex Search Form, only to be
thwarted by its complexity? Have you ever wondered how to check
field-primary armory in a single step? Have you ever had to leave a
consult hanging because you simply didn’t have an internet
connection? Come learn about Oddr’s Aspilogia, an app for Windows
8.1 and Windows 10 (and Windows Mobile 10!) devices, and how it can
save you from hauling the printed copy of the SCA Ordinary &
Armorial around site.

Pre-requisites: While experience in conflict
checking will be very useful, it is not a requirement. We will not,
however, cover SENA in any particular detail. Reviewing SENA ahead
of time – Appendix I in particular – is highly recommended.

 $             
–  

 Students are invited to bring a Windows 8.1 or Windows 10
device, or a phone running Windows Mobile 10. It is recommended to
pre-install the app from the Windows Store (search for Aspilogia),
and run it once to download the current O&A. Students are also
invited to bring names and armory they’re interested in checking
for conflict.

Herald

Heralds and Our Place in [the] Society

1
hour                                                                    

 As heralds in the SCA, we tend to have a good idea of our
role — but how often do we encounter people who think our ways and
means are arbitrary and made-up?  How do we tie our modern
duties to those of our historical counterparts, and how do we
explain that to others? Where did heralds find themselves in
Society, and how did that change over time with the rise and fall
of the Tournament? What is the connection between minstrels,
military advisors, and the modern actor Paul Betteny? What was
Coldharbour and why was it important? What was the business with
Scrope v Grosvenor? Who was William Bruges? Sir Anthony Wagner? Why
should you care?      This will be a round
table discussion about what it meant to be named “herald”.

 $

Students should bring more questions than we can answer in an
hour. Questions can also be emailed to the moderator at
gro.nabuht@rddo.
