Main Room

[Hvairn's Showldh Stal]
A polished bell hung from a spring on the door tinkles merrily each time someone enters the room. Redolent of pungent oak and acrid metal polish, the rough timber floorboards and walls are bare of superfluous ornament save for the wares on sale. Shields of every hue and color, shape and design fill the glass case and the wide shelf, their sumptuous elegance counterfeiting glamour where in fact there is none. You also see Hvairn.

Heraldry Room

[Hvairn's Heraldry room]
Pervading every nook and cranny is the prevalent stink of paint thinners and the acrid smell of burnt metal. A counter divides the room neatly into two, behind which stands a desk whose surface is edged in miniature compartments, each holding items of the trade -- ink pots, brushes, and stylus. Lyewend, who oversees the ordered chaos, stands framed by myriad small square drawers, each wooden front dotted with a small copper knob. You also see a curtained archway.

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.
