Pendragon: Chivalry is Magic
Following the traitorous assassination of King Nanteleod by a knight lacking in disguise, the practice of Heraldry has taken on new prominence in Britain.

The tradition is for a child to take the arms of their knighted parent, and then modify it to be on the same theme, but distinct to them.
