Regardless, it is clear from historical records that Rolls of Arms were maintained by period heralds. There are examples of Rolls of Arms that record the devices of individuals that participated in historical battles, as well as comprehensive records of the arms of various nobility throughout the latter part of the Middle Ages. Heraldry is also an integral part of the 'Current Middle Ages' and the recording of arms is central to the SCA College of Arms. Presented here is the 'Roll of Arms' for the Barony of Ruantallan, its subgroups, and the populous at large.
Armoury that has been recorded with the SCA College of Arms is listed in the navigation bar to the left. The devices for individuals are listed in in the order of the registered first name for each person. Everyone is encouraged to submit their personal heraldry for display - if your device has been registered with the SCA College of Arms we strongly encourage you to add your arms to the Ruantallan 'Roll of Arms'.
Rules for inclusion in the Armorial:
1) You are currently, or were formally, a resident of the Barony of Ruantallan.
2) Your NAME and DEVICE must be registered with the SCA College of Arms.
Both your name and your device will be displayed exactly as registered.
The rules for SCA heraldry have changed significantly over time, and as a result, not all of the arms displayed in the Ruantallan Roll of Arms may be registerable under the current Rules for Submissions.
Names listed in the armorial that are followed by an asterisk currently have a device in the submission process and are pending approval by the Laurel Sovereign of Arms (Note: devices pending approval by Laurel have been passed by the Eastern Crown Herald).
