Questions: Heraldry and Archery
- I have a couple of questions that I hope someone might be able to
I'm returning after a long period of inactivity. My husband is
essentially a newbie. We recently moved to Dubuque, Iowa (a little
city right on the corner of Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin)--thus,
we're on the corner of Calontir, the Midrealm and Northshield.
Triple the fun! Lots of groups within a few hours drive! But none
here, alas. We've had fun visiting with the nearest group, Dark River
(Midrealm), a couple of times (neat folks!). But at an hour and a
half each way, it's a little too far to drive during a weeknight very
My question: Back when I was still active, I had registered my name
and was awarded an AOA (this was in the Midrealm). According to the
Corporate Office, Dubuque lies within Calontir. So, if I want to
change my persona name (which I do) and work on a device, do I need
to contact a herald in one of the Calontir groups? Or can we work
with a herald in the Midrealm?
Also, we'd like to learn about archery. Are there some good websites
for absolute beginners? Most I've seen went waaay above my head.
There's an archery range nearby where we could arrange to practice,
so we figured we could work on our skills and then hopefully be able
to participate during events. Does archery require authorization
like heavy weapons or rapier fighting? If so, could we be authorized
in one kingdom and participate in another's activities?
Thanks for your help!
