Outlands College of Heralds
28 February 2016
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 February 2016 CE, ruling on the January 2016 Letter of Presentation (http://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=100&loi=3703).
I would like to thank all of the heralds who were kind enough to provided commentary.
The following items were RETURNED for further work:
Abigail MacNaught - New Badge. Vairy Or and gules, a bat displayed and a bordure sable
Returned for a conflict with Damon of Marinus (12/12 via Atlantia): Or, a reremouse and a bordure sable. 1 DC for the change to the field. Emblazon: http://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2016-02/abigail-c.jpg
Dagrún Laufeydottr - New Name & New Device. Gyronni arrondi sable and gules, a dragon sejant affronty, head to dexter and wings displayed Or
The name is returned because Laufey is an unregisterable mythological name as it is the name of the mother of the Norse God Loki, per the April 2002 LoAR - Laufey rauðrefr (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2002/04/02-04lar.html). The commentors suggested the alternative of Ljúfudóttir which is the closest name, the College of Heralds has found, to what the submitter submitted. The device is returned because of lack of name to send up with it. Emblazon: http://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2016-02/dagrun-c.jpg
Franziskus Becker von Schweinfurt - New Device. Azure, two goats clymant argent armed Or, a base per fess indented gules and argent
Returned for a redraw because of color on color with the azure field and the gules base. Emblazon: http://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2016-02/franziskus-c.jpg
Gillian Elizabeth Dawnser - New Badge. (Fieldless) A wolf rampant reguardant azure, a scroll surrouding reading "Nesessant Mihi Tripudiare" argent
Returned for a redraw. The scroll is not surrounding the wolf nor is it in a blazonable position. Commentors also noted that the Latin is incorrect. However, being uncertain of what the submitter intends the Latin to say, the commentors were unable to correct the submitter's Latin. Emblazon: http://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2016-02/gillian-c.jpg
Lucrèce de Pardieu - New Device. Argent, on a fireball sable enflamed proper a dragon (undetermined position) argent
Returned for a redraw. The dragon is too small to be identified and is in an unblazonable position. Animals are not typically placed on their backs nor are they usually eating their tails. Emblazon: http://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2016-02/lucrece-c.jpg
Minamoto Shizuka - New Device. Per fess wavy purpure and sable, a hawk stooping within an orle surmounted by three lotus blossoms argent
Returned for a redraw. Complex lines of division are not allowed with purpure and sable as it becomes color on color. Simple lines of division do allow for the combination of purpure and sable. Emblazon: http://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2016-02/minamoto-c.jpg
Unser Hafen, Barony of. - Order Name Resubmission & Badge Resubmission. Chorus Portatum of Unser Hafen & (Fieldless) On a portcullis vert a capital G Or
The order name is returned because it does not follow the patterns for Order Names, and for incorrect Latin usage. The badge is returned for a redraw as the capital G isn't identifiable as a G from a distance. Emblazon: http://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2016-02/unser-hafen-c.jpg
Unser Hafen, Barony of. - Order Name Resubmission. Equites of Unser Hafen
Returned because it does not follow the patterns for Order Names, and for presumption as Equites can mean 'Knights'.
