Main Herald's Web Page


NOTE: This is for humor only, the following items were not really submitted to the College of Arms as a set of real submissions, note the date above (April 1), and enjoy the antics of the Heralds (if you can)!

Coming soon to a theater near you!

Written and directed by Aasa Basingstoke and produced by the Western branch of the College of Heralds Imaginary, it's the Spring blockbuster you've all been waiting for!

"The April First Letter" is a massively cross-genre action-adventure-comedy-thriller-western-fantasy-science fiction-space-drama that will leave you asking yourself that most important of questions: "What did I just watch!?"

Yours in humor and heraldry, Aasa Thorvaldsdottir Basingstoke Purse-wave-ant (and also Vesper)
