What are the options? What happens if you die without releasing your SCA heraldry?

He is still thinking about that. None of our bio-children are anywhere near a place in life to manage it, and may or may not ever develop the passion.
I take it you are married or otherwise connected with him? I would love to have an article for the Florilegium explaining the purpose/history of this particular machine. Or one that also talks about the history and use of similar machines. I’ve mentioned this to him, but he didn’t feel he had the writing ability to write it up on his own. Perhaps you, or someone else, can help or do the job?
Since I’m no longer free to travel, I’m unlikely to see it in action. :-( An article like this would let others like me experience this machine and learn from what Gerald has done.
My standard policy is that the copyright remains with the author and I accept updates at any time. I can also handle diagrams and photographs.

I’ve known of this in general, but I’m unsure of the details and options or how I would do this heraldic will. Again, if someone would like to write an article on this heraldic will, I’d love to add it to the Florilegium.
And I’ve not decided what to do with the Florilegium. Anyone interested in becoming an assistant and perhaps taking it over when I’m no longer going to be doing it?
