Heraldry usually involves the creation and registration of [[armorial]] bearings, or [[device]]s. This is controlled by [[College of Arms|Colleges of Arms]]. In the [[SCA]], [[herald]]s are also responsible for keeping track of awards, researching accurate medieval [[names]], compère-ing [[tournament]]s, running [[ceremony|ceremonies]], and a multitude of other things.
 
 
These activities are usually divided into two main categories. [[Book heraldry]] involves anything to do with the registration of names and devices, and the organisation of ceremonies.  [[Voice heraldry]] is announcing things.
