Request from the Ministry of Culture
« on: June 21, 2022, 06:34:02 AM »
To the Squirrel King of Arm,

I humbly request the colleges assistance from the college, as Minister for Culture, in order to create designs related to “Talossan versions of Letters Patent, State Awards, and other physical forms of the trappings of Monarchy and chivalry” so that these might be presented to the Ziu to be adopted for formal usage within the Kingdom of Talossa. As this is one of the goals of the Ministry to complete over the current term.

I appreciate this will be an undertaking, and can be done step by step, however, this is intended to seek the assistance of the college on this ongoing project, as the experts of heraldry within the Kingdom, this is in your expertise. to work with the Min Culture to make these proposals into reality.

I look forward to hearing you reply.

Azul,

That is a difficult question to answer as this will be a large project, and is something that i plan to work with the College with over the current term.

To start with i suppose starting with designs for possible Letters patent, and templates that can be used for state awards such as those given by the Ziu, these designs are, intended to be for physical items for those who are given these awards, and when Letters patents are issued (the later more guidance on this will be worked on over the coming months). but one idea i have for that is that when arms and/or titles are granted, that could be done, by letters patent, and a physical copy of this could be sent to those who are given these awards.

Other ideas may also come up in future, and i am aware that these will need to be adopted by the Ziu, and to have legislation around them, however it is part of the Min Cultures agenda for the term, so i thought, the sooner we can start working towards designs for "physical trappings of Monarchy" and all of the things with that, the better.

Again, i know this is alot, and is something that is to be done in stages, but i thought, having it all under one request, as they all tie into each other would be the easiest path to go down.
As soon more things are firmed up, ill put them here, but for now, starting with Letters Patents seems to be the easiest place to start.

However, as indicated, this isnt a usual request for one item, more of a collaboration between the college of arms, and the ministry of culture, to make this request possible. I hope this has made some sense. And i look forward to working with the college on this.

Did the Government have something like this in mind?

As a note to the above, I will add too that fine-paper versions of the Talossan grants above will be formally sealed and signed by me and sent to those individuals who indicated to my former regent that they wished for them.  Here is a picture of an example, pre-signature.

I had forgotten this was posted, but in terms of issuing titles, that is a start, although, in the design for such a thing, perhaps also, including the coat of arms of the monarch at the top, and where appropriate, the CoA of the person getting the title, with the updated arms reflecting their title, also, the seal of the realm should be included too, to make the design feel more Talossan, authentic, and personal to the individual. Also, having a slightly different design for each rank would also be an idea.
The same could also be done with awards from the Ziu.

The Culture department is also thinking of other things that could be designed, and will post such ideas here when we have them, as i had said in an earlier post, this is intended as a collaboration project with the Min Culture and the College of Arms.

So this would be for people being granted titles?  That's an exceedingly rare circumstance!  Do you perhaps mean knighthoods?  Or possible even grants of arms?  Letters patent may be issued for just about any dignity granted by the sovereign.

Certainly slapping a couple of images on there is pretty easy to do, whichever you choose.
