Outlands College of Heralds
31 December 2010
From the Office of Rampart Herald
Baron Randal Carrick (Randall Jackson)
Unto Omar Mohammed Mirzazadeh, White Stag Principal Herald, and the College of Heralds of the Kingdom of the Outlands, does Randal Carrick, Rampart Herald send his greetings. What follows is the Letter of Response for December 2010 CE, ruling on the November 2010 Letters of Presentation. I would like to thank the following heralds for providing commentary for this letter: Master Louis-Philippe Mitouard, Catspaw Herald Extraordinary; THL Eric Morrison, Hawk's Hollow Pursuivant; THL Ailinn Shadowfox; Lady Leonor Ruiz de Lison; Lord Andrew von Otelingen, Barbican Pursuivant; Ines Alfon; and Gawain of Miskbridge, Green Anchor Herald.
The following items were forwarded to Laurel Sovereign for final determination:
- Caer Galen, Barony of - New Order Name. Order of the Harp and Chalice.
- Elizabeth Anne Grene - New Name (See RETURNS for device)
- Jayne Barber - Device Resubmission (Kingdom). Vert, two maidens holding hands argent and a chief ermine
The following items were RETURNED for further work:
- Aiedel Ahearn - New Name and Device. Azure chapé argent, a phoenix rising from flames argent and in chief two compass stars azure. Unfortunately, the provided documentation supports the names Edith and Adela, however the name construction practices noted cannot be construed to support the creation of the name Aiedel from these two names. First, the construction practices noted combine a masculine name with a feminine name, not two feminine names. Second, commenters could find no way to spell the name Aiedel with any combination Adela and Edith. The device must be returned for lack of a name to send it up with, as well as the limitation that the side areas of a chapé field may not be charged. Submitter may wish to consider changing the field to a pile or per chevron field division to avoid this restriction while keeping the arrangement of charges.
- Elizabeth Anne Grene - Device resubmission (Kingdom). Argent, in bend sinister two banners purpure and vert, each suspended from poles fesswise sable. Because banners can be a form of heraldic display, each must be conflict-checked separately, as well as the overall device. In this case, Vert is protected as the important non-SCA flag of Libya. Therefore, this device must be returned for conflict
