Outlands College of Heralds
28 June 2017
From the Office of Rampart Herald
Khalidah bint Yahya'a (Nicole Riviezzo)
Unto Angus Reid MacFarlane, 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 June 2017 CE, ruling on the May 2017 Letter of Presentation (http://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=100&loi=4564).
I would like to thank all of the heralds who were kind enough to provided commentary.
The following items were RETURNED for further work:
Aarquelle, Barony of - New Badge. (Fieldless) On a heart Or a brown bear statant proper
Returned for a redraw as the "bear" needs to be centered and fully contained on the heart. The "bear" also has identifiabilty issues as it does not look anything like a bear. Please use a more standard heraldic rendition of a bear statant. Emblazon: http://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2017-06/aarquelle-osorio-c.jpg
Aarquelle, Barony of - New Badge. Argent, two wolves combattant azure, a mountain of three peaks vert
Returned for a redraw as the wolves are not consistent in their placement on the field - either both need to be touching the peaks or neither should touch the peaks. The wolves should be more heraldically lupine-like as several commentors noted they possess all the identifying features of heraldic tygers - horn on the snout, the style of tail. Commentors also recommend more defined peaks. Emblazon: http://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2017-06/aarquelle-wolf-c.jpg
Aarquelle, Barony of - New Badge. Azure, three broadswords inverted Or, a bordure wavy argent
Returned for a redraw as the broadswords are not identifiable due to the strange cup or hilt. Emblazon: http://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2017-06/aarquelle-sword-c.jpg
Aarquelle, Barony of - New Badge. Azure, three bars wavy argent, a mace Or
Returned for a redraw as it was submitted with 'Barry azure and argent' but the barry field isn't a properly drawn barry - the azure and argent bands aren't distributed properly across the field. One of the other badges submitted by the Barony does have a properly drawn barry (https://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2017-06/aarquelle-anvil-c.jpg) so commentors recommend using that badge's barry for the redraw and consistency. Emblazon: https://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2017-06/aarquelle-mace-c.jpg
Bernharðr Björnsson - New Name.
Returned due to an incorrectly structured patronymic. The submitter's documentation supports the correct construction of Bjarnarson. A commentor also provided documentation in internal commentary/LoP for the possibility of Biørnsson.
Cecily de Heselington - New Badge. Argent, a fess wavy gules between a dexter hand fesswise and a sinister hand fesswise reversed azure
Returned for Unity of Posture as the charges need seperate descriptors to describe their placements on the field. Emblazon: https://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2017-06/cecily-c.jpg
Dmitri Ivanovich Gubina - Name & Device.
Returned by Castle Herald for improper submission notes and attachments, please see the guidelines - http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/, under the heading 'Submissions to Castle'.
Ethan Drachenmacher - New Name & New Device. Argent, a demi-dragon gules issuant from a mount sable
The name is returned for lack of proper documentation. The inclusion of a notation about another registered name with the desired surname is not documentation especially since it does not include the materials referenced which are needed. The documentation summary stated the notation was from the February 2008 LoAR - it is not nor is the notation found on the February 2005 LoAR when the surname was previously registered. It should be noted that the previous passage of a name/name element does not guarantee the passage of the same in the future. The submission came with other surname 'options', however, commentary and consideration are not given on the options so they are not considered viable. These options imply the submission was submitted in an incomplete state so the name is also being returned for being incomplete. Submitter is advised in the future to submit any documentation on letter sized 300 DPI jpeg scans instead of 1/4 page and 1/2 page sizes as those sizes are problematic for archival purposes. The device is returned for a lack of name to go up with it. Emblazon: https://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2017-06/ethan-c.jpg
Guinevere inghean Ui háinle - New Name & New Device. Or, a castle sable, a bordure sable bezanty
The name is returned for lack of proper dated documentation for all of the name elements. Commentors also questioned the surname's construction. The device is returned for a lack of name to send up with it. Emblazon: https://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2017-06/guinevere-c.jpg
Kata Broddisdottir - New Name & New Device. Per chevron azure and sable, two butterflies and a skull argent
The name is returned for improper construction and the submitter's desire to have no major changes. The proper construction of the patronymic is Broddadóttir or Broddadottir if the submitter desires to continue not using the accents. Submitter is advised in the future to submit any documentation on letter sized 300 DPI jpeg scans instead of 1/4 page sizes as those sizes are problematic for archival purposes. The device is returned for lack of name to send up with it. Emblazon: https://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2017-06/kata-c.jpg
Khalidah bint Yahya'a - New Badge. (Fieldless) A rose sable
Returned for a conflict with Aonghus Lochlainn of Loch Fyne (95/12 via the Outlands) - Pily bendy sinister argent and vert, a rose sable barbed and seeded Or. There is only one DC for the change of field. Emblazon: https://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2017-06/khalidah-rose-c.jpg
Marija Zuzorić - New Device. Per bend sinister purpure and argent, on a bend sinister azure between a lotus flower in profile argent and a sinister butterfly wing azure an ivy vine argent
Returned for a redraw. Multiple issues were cited by commentors - the bend isn't wide enough, the ivy vine isn't identifiable as ivy nor as a vine in general, contrast issues between the purpure half of the field and the azure bend, if a buttefly's wing is registerable charge, and what is the blazonable position of the butterfly wing. Emblazon: https://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2017-06/marija-c.jpg
