Outlands College of Heralds
26 July 2015
From the Office of Rampart Herald
Khalidah bint Yahya'a (Nicole Riviezzo)
Unto Randal Carrick, White Stag Principal Herald, and the College of Heralds of the Kingdom of the Outlands, does Khalidah bint Yahya'a, Rampart Herald, send her greetings.
What follows is the Letter of Response for July 2015 CE, ruling on the June 2015 Letter of Presentation (http://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=100&loi=3330).
I would like to thank all of the heralds who were kind enough to provided commentary.
The following items were RETURNED for further work:
al-Barran, Barony of - Resubmission of Order Name. Order of Scorpius Punctum
Returned for rework because it does not follow the guidelines for Order Names established in SENA or in Juliana de Luna's Medieval Secular Order Names (http://heraldry.sca.org/names/order/new/). The hole left by a scorpion's sting is not a known heraldic charge, and there is no currently documented pattern of naming Orders after objects that are not heraldic charges.
al-Barran, Barony of - Resubmission of Order Name. Order of the Kaun
Returned for lack of documentation. Commentors were also dubious about the name construction as this Order name would essentially be the Order of [a letter] which does not appear to be a registrable practice.
Dagun Tngri - New Name and New Device. Azure, a fret Or
The name is returned for presumption. Tngri means "of heavenly beings" and a reference to gods; giving the implication of Dagun being a god which is presumption and disallowed by SENA (http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#PN4). The device is returned for numerous conflicts and lack of name to send up with it. Emblazon: http://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2015-06/dagun-c.jpg
Tariq ibn Yusuf ibn 'Askari al-Ghassani - New Badge. Per chevron inverted azure and Or, a scimitar in fess and three lozenges counterchanged
Returned for redraw as division line lies between a per chevron inverted and a chief pointed. Emblazon: http://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2015-06/askar-c.jpg
The following items were PENDED for further Discussion:
The following items were forwarded to Laurel Sovereign for final determination:
Ailith Dreki - New Name.
Bernardo dei Medici - New Household Name & New Badge. Free Company of the Silver Sun & (Fieldless) A sun sable eclipsed argent
Gilbert le Verrat - New Name.
Ingriðr Rauðkinn - New Badge. Argent, two peacocks addorsed reguardant proper within a wreath of roses proper
Phaidra Thebaia - New Name.
Tariq ibn Yusuf ibn 'Askari al-Ghassani - New Household Name. Askar al-Qal'a
Tatiana Bonnieux - New Name & New Device. Azure, a chevron cotised between a rapier fesswise reversed and a cross fleury argent
Thus ends the July 2015 Letter of Response.
