For those who are attended Pennsic and made use of the consulting tables:

Due to the number of submissions received, it may not be possible for the consulting heralds to keep you updated on the progress of your names and devices. Please let me know if you submit something while there, in case you have questions about where it is in the process or in the event that the College has questions or needs to request a change to your paperwork.

In service,
