Outlands College of Heralds
27 September 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 September 2017 CE, ruling on the August 2017 Letter of Presentation (http://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=100&loi=4758).
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 - Eight Proposed Order Names.
Returned by Castle, after a three month pend, because name submissions forms and documentation were never provided for eight Order names. A name submission form and supporting documentation for each element of an Order name must be provided in order to registered it and associate them with armory.
Gráinne Sochair - New Name.
Returned for lack of documentation for the surname. Documentation must have dated information for the usage of the name element. The online dictionary provided as "documentation" did not meet this requirement.
Jane Nora Carrik - Device Change Resubmission. Azure, a greyhound statant argent, collared gules, reined Or, ridden by a hare attired of a stag's antlers argent
Returned for rework & withdrawal by submitter. Identifiability is lacking between the greyhound and the hare. While the submitter requested a change of coloration for one of the creatures, it is a major change to the submission - even if the submitter had verified which creature she wanted to modify and how - and major change needs to be resubmitted to allow for proper commentary time. Therefore, Kingdom saw this as a withdrawal of submission. A brown hare was discussed, however, there needs to be documentation for [proper] color on color in addition to brown being the hare's proper color.

Ylva of Lorraine - New Name & New Device. Argent, a dragon's paw print per pale azure and sable within a bordure azure
The byname, Ylva, is returned for lack of documentation. As submitted, the Scandinavian byname cannot be combined with the French surname per SENA Appendix C. Even though, the submitter submitted documentation for the name allowance in regards to the surname, the byname still lacks documentation resulting in the return. The device is returned for a rework. The dragon's paw print lacks identifiability and precendent. There are dragons with different amount of toes and different styles of claws so there's a lack of consistency to properly identify a "dragon's paw print". Even though, paw prints are considered as SFPP, documentation would be needed to register a dragon's paw print as it is not a previously registered charge. Commentors repeatedly mentioned that the paw print could also be any land-based bird. Emblazon: http://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2017-09/ylva-d-c.jpg
Ylva of Lorraine - New Badge. (Fieldless) On a dragon's paw print per pale azure and sable, a wolf's paw print argent
Returned for multiple issues. The dragon's paw print lacks identifiability and precendent. There are dragons with different amount of toes and styles of claws so there's a lack of consistency to properly identify a "dragon's paw print". Paw prints are a step from period practice and only one SFPP is allowed per armory item, this badge has two SFPP. A paw print is a paw print, no matter what creatures are indentified so this also violates the sword and dagger ruling. Use of multiple paw prints was further expressed on the December 1990 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/1990/12/lar.html) s.n. Jacqueline de Lyons: "using two different types of the same charge (pawprints) ... has been disallowed for some time". Even though, paw prints are considered as SFPP, documentation would be needed to register a dragon's paw print as it is not a previously registered charge. Commentors repeatedly mentioned that the dragon's paw print could also be any land-based bird. Emblazon: http://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2017-09/ylva-b-c.jpg
The following items were PENDED by Castle Herald:
Fiora Della Casa - Device.
Pended due to missing device artwork (line and color) on the device forms.
Lucrezia de Carducci - Device.
Pended as submitter needs to provide date of return for previous submission.
The following items were PENDED by Rampart Herald for further discussion:
The following items were forwarded to Laurel Sovereign for final determination:
Fálki Ásgeirsson - New Device Change. Or, two dragons combatant gules, in base three drinking horns interlaced in annulo azure
Gunnarr Langskeggr - New Name & New Device. Per saltire gules and sable, a spear argent between a pair of drinking horns respectant Or
Johanna Morganstern - New Device. Vert, a compass star sable fimbriated argent between two barrulets Or, and a chief bendy argent and sable
Kalala bint Yahuda - New Device. Per fess sable and vert, a lion sejant erect regardant Or and in sinister chief a mullet of six points argent
Uighur-un Buqu - New Name & New Device. Sable, a turtle argent between two natural tigers salient addorsed argent marked sable
Thus ends the September 2017 Letter of Response.
