Good people of the Outlands,
Beginning now, I am seeking a successor to follow me as White Stag Principal Herald of the Outlands. Wjhite Stag is the chief heraldic officer of the kingdom, the personal herald of the Sovereign when His/Her Majesty shall do desire, and the head of the Outlands College of Heralds. White Stag reports directly to the Laurel Principal Sovereign of Arms, the principal heraldic officer of the Society.
The office requires a good deal of management and administrative skill, and at least a moderate knowledge of heraldry as practiced in the SCA, to include: court, ceremonies, names, armory, heraldic display. Experience as a kingdom deputy herald and/or as a baronial herald is strongly encouraged.
It is expected that White Stag will attend all Crown Tournaments and Coronations, as well as Battlemoor, where (s)he shall act as the Herald-in-Charge. As with any Greater Office, SCA membership is required in order to be considered.
Please send a letter of interest, preferably with your relevant experience, to Their Majesties, the Kingdom Seneschal, and myself, as follows:
If I have forgotten any details or there are any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. This information will be cross-posted and published in the next available Outlandish Herald.
Your most obedient servant,
Timothy O'Brien, OP
White Stag Principal Herald
Gold Trumpet Herald Extraordinary
