From your Æðeluulf, find these words addressed to Marie, White Stag Principal Herald. It is the hope that well wishes find all upon this day. I apologise to one and all for the delay in getting the following letter out the door, and would like to thank whole-heartedly the following heralds for providing commentary:

Rohese de Dinan, Shadowdale Pursuivant; Thomas of Shrewsbury; Gawain of Miskbridge, Green Anchor Herald; Kieran Blake; Marie de Blois, Herald Extraordinary; Randal Carrick, Castle Herald; Furukusu Masahide, Aspen Pursuivant; Francesca di Pavia, Ray de Soleil Pursuivant; Asta Olafsdottir; Leonor Ruiz de Lison; Violante d'Atayde; Cadan of Mons Tonitrus; Eadaoin; Eíbhlín inghean Fhearghusa; Llywus ap Alan, Wharrow Herald;

The following items have been sent to Laurel for final determination:

  1. Adam Mathyson. New Name. (See RETURNS for Device)
  2. Alrik Boleslavov. Device Resubmission. Per chevron sable and argent, two lions combattant and a tree blasted and eradicated within a bordure counterchanged.
  3. Christopher Devereux. New Name Change. (from Kieran Blake, retained as alternate)
  4. Clare de Chepyng Campedene. New Name.
  5. Gwenhevare Lepard. New Name. (See RETURNS for Device)
  6. Leonor Ruiz de Lisón. New Name & Device. Or, a bend sable between four pomegranates gules, slipped and leaved vert, seeded Or.
  7. Magge Magnus. New Name. (See RETURNS for Device)
  8. Meliore Gimigna Fioravanti. New Name Change. (from Ysabeau Anais Roussot du Lioncourt, retained)
  9. Milesha Kulikova. New Name.
  10. Salomea Toruńska. New Name & Device. Argent, a chevron engrailed gules between three bats sable within a bordure engrailed gules.

The following items were returned for further work:

  1. Adam Mathyson. New Device. Gules, a bend sable fimbriated, in chief a bear pawprint argent.
    Returned for conflict with Trinidad and Tobago, Gules, a bend sable fimbriated argent. There is only one CD for the addition of the secondary pawprint.
  2. Gwenhevare Lepard. New Device. Argent, a dianthus flower seeded proper and chief engrailed purpure.
    This is returned for redraw; the main charge should be termed a "gilllyflower" and is coloured gules by default; pink is neither purpure nor gules and is not a heraldic tincture, and cannot be registered as such.
  3. Magge Magnus. New Device. Purpure, on a bend or three butterflies bend-sinisterwise purpure, between two hummingbirds reversed Or.
    Returned for redraw; all of the elements were much too small to be identified as such. With a wider bend, there would be more room for the butterflies; finally, the charges indicated to be hummingbirds were not easily identified as such, and would best be redefined as just 'birds'.
  4. Nathaniel Hayes. Device Resubmission. Per chevron or and argent, a grenade sable enflamed gules.
    Returned for Conflict; Rampart apologises profusely for not catching this conflict the last time 'round. This resbumission addresses the re-draw request, but it is still in conflict with US Army Ordinance Corp, A grenade sable. There is only a single difference granted for addtion of a field, as the change in tincture of the flame is not a significant enough change to clear conflict. For reference, the Febuary 2008CE Cover Letter defined a 'grenade proper' as "sable, enflamed proper, that is, sable with alternating gules and Or tongues of flame."
  5. Robert Magnus. New Device. Or, a raptor's foot couped gules, taloned sable, a chief dovetailed and on a champagne sable a mullet of four greater and four lesser points Or.
    Returned for Redraw; this does not show a very good depiction of 'dovetailed', as the traits are not evenly spaced or matched in size. Additionally, the charge 'champagne' has never been registered before. In Fox-Davies' "A Complete Guide to Heraldry", it says "In foreign heraldry the base of the quartered shield is not infrequently cut off by a horizontal line, forming what is known as a Champagne, and the space thus made is occupied by one or more coats." As this charge has a curved top, this does not support the use of the charge, nor does the documentation date the charge.

Inscibed by Rampart Herald upon the feast of Saint Marcellus the Centurion, being the XXX of October in the XLIII year of the society, being the year of grace MMVIII.
