I think the yak/marshal badge is quite interesting and truly punny in a way only the SCA seems to be. That being said, perhaps the Pied Piper/marshal badge may be more communicative of our aims. Of course, this is merely my opinion, offered freely.

- LOL, cute joke.I was thinking the same thing about using different colored backgrounds for different divisons.Basically the "fieldless" means it is a charge you can add to any pre-existing heraldry to show your affiliation with said group. We in An-Tir can add the populace badge to our existing heraldry, to show that we hail from and associate ourselves with the Kingdom of An Tir, or we can add it to our equipment, camp gear, etc to show the same thing. So now we just need to decide on field colors for divisions. I will put up a poll on the site and send everyone a link to it when it is done, so we can decide once and for all what color for each division.YIS,

Date: Sunday, April 11, 2010, 7:01 AMInstead of fieldless for the participant badges, why not division color for the field. The animal head and weapons will be gold, so there isn't any conflict in using division color.
Isn't a fieldless represented as white? That would make the participant badge look like gold on silver.
All I have to say to that is...
How many heralds does it take to change a light bulb?
They can't it's metal on metal.
