College of Arms, and the leadership thereof
« on: December 20, 2020, 09:14:20 PM »
Estimats cüncitaxhiens, the Government in consultation with the Regent has reached a determination that the Squirrel King of Arms, Lord Hooligan, is no longer in a position to continue his duties. This is distressing to everyone concerned, given his long and stellar record of service in Talossa.

However, there is thankfully an obvious successor - the current Dean of the College of Arms, @Beneditsch Ardprestéir, who has manfully kept the flag of Talossan heraldry flying these past few years.

Therefore, as authorised by El Lexhtatx L.5, I recommend to the King of Talossa acting through his appointed Regent that Beneditsch Ardprestéir be named the Squirrel King of Arms.

Upon his appointment, I would like to schedule a meeting between the new Sq.K.A, myself and the Culture Minister, to determine whether the College should continue its current fully autonomous status, or whether it would benefit from becoming formally part of the Royal Civil Service and thus to benefit from the administrative support of the Ministry of Culture.

Grült méirçi.

I understand that the government has determined that Lord Hooligan is no longer in a position to continue his duties as the Squirrel King of Arms. This is indeed a piece of very distressing news. Further, although am elated with the proposal of my elevation to the post, I would like to propose the name of The Bleu SwordAndScale Herald (or whatever name @C. M. Siervicül chooses) to be the Squirrel King of Arms and I act as his deputy and be the Squirrel Viceroy of Arms.

Even if the new SKA is not available on a regular basis, I would always have some help from the top.

I hope everyone should be happy with this suggested re-arrangement. The Kingdom not only gets its SKA, but its SVA too :)

This would be fine with the Crown, if it's fine with the Seneschal (if she wishes to do this and if Cresti's good with it).

I would be fine either way, but do hope to be around more regularly going forward.

Many thanks to the Squirrel King and Squirrel Viceroy for their service heretofore! Talossan heraldry needs you.

Thanks, but no thanks. I have still not been appointed as the SVA by the SKA. The Regent, on the advice of the Seneschal has only appointed the SKA as per the provisions of law. Now, it's upto the SKA to form his team; I had simply given a suggestion.

Btw, I urge the SKA to chose his 'Herald' name as it has long upset me to have been a 'Herald' Dean, when my de facto boss, the SVA was still a Pursuivant. It's high time to rectify the anomaly.  Sir CMS is, thus, once again urged to choose his 'Herald' name in the format of <TalossanColour Object Herald>
