The herald is in charge of heraldry. This includes:

A group herald assists people in the group with the registration of an SCA name and device, either through their own knowledge, or by connecting people with more experienced heralds. They are also the Voice of the Crown and as such make announcements at events, announce bouts in melees and act as Master of Ceremonies and Public Address system at courts.

The College of Heraldry administers heraldry throughout the SCA. It maintains a Society wide record of all registered names and devices. At Kingdom level it maintains the Order of Precedence and keeps track of all awards given to the populace. Heralds are given ranks, according to their experience and accomplishments. A trainee herald is called a Cornet. Once the Cornet has passed a basic test and has gained experience in the various fields of heraldry they are accorded the rank of Pursuivant. Senior heralds are entitled Herald.
