[The Heraldry Shop]
A palette of smells greets patrons of the Heraldry Shop as mineral spirits, turpentine, and linseed oil compete for olfactory attention. But Bonime, the artist, allows no visual clutter: rows of paints and solvents, pots of brushes, and sketches on scraps of paper all occupy orderly places on walls and workbenches. A leather-bound catalog rests on a plain plank counter at the front of the shop. You also see a shield rack with some stuff on it and Bonime.
Obvious exits: north (to Blazons and Banners).

Page 2: STANCES

The charge you select for your shield may be blazoned in one of the following stances:

1 Affronte: the beast looks squarely out of the shield.
2 Combatant: two rampant beasts facing each other.
3 Couchant: crouching, with the head up.
4 Courant: running like a greyhound.
5 Dormant: lying down in a sleeping position.
6 Passant: walking, with head forward and a forepaw raised.
7 Rampant: rearing on one hind leg, with three paws raised.
8 Sajant: seated on its haunches.
9 Salient: leaping in the air.
10 Statant: standing on all legs.

Obviously, charges like birds that lack paws cannot be shown as passant or rampant.
