Heraldic Silliness

I took the plunge and acquired a number of the great programs from Inkwell Ideas. In addition to both Hexographer and Dungeongrapher, I got the Coat of Arms Design Studio. It's a fun and very easy-to-use program. After only a short time noodling around with it, I was able to produce this coat of arms for the city-state of Adamas in my Dwimmermount campaign -- no great work of art, perhaps, but far better than I ever could have accomplished on my own. And like all the Inkwell Ideas programs, it's not hard to add new icons and images if you don't like the ones that come with it.
That's Latinulo, not Latin, in case you're wondering.


  1. I didn't even know about this one. I'll have to check it out. Thanks.

  2. Dude, this is perfect timing. I am just about to start a campaign in which coat-of-arms and heraldry will be required and didn't want to design them myself. Thank you so much for the tip!

  3. In Terra Non Rosus Sin Espinus
    'In Earth No Roses without Thorns' Thats Real Latin by the way...

  4. Yellowdingo, is that Esperanto?! Just kidding, but perhaps "nullae rosae sine spinis," though I'll leave that to better Latinists than I...

  5. I don't get the silliness part...but now I'm thinking of "Nulla in mundo pax sincera."

  6. I don't get the silliness part...but now I'm thinking of "Nulla in mundo pax sincera."

    "Silliness" is just another example of my tendency toward self-deprecation. Besides, if I didn't use such terms, I'm sure some anonymous genius elsewhere would take it as yet another example of my overweening arrogance and self-satisfaction ...
