Outlands College of Heralds
28 December 2018
From the Office of Rampart Herald
THL Khalidah bint Yahya'a (Nicole Riviezzo)
Unto Baron Timothy O'Brien, White Stag Principal Herald, and the College of Heralds of the Kingdom of the Outlands, does THL Khalidah bint Yahya'a, Rampart Herald, send her greetings.
What follows is the Letter of Response for December 2018 CE, ruling on the November 2018 Letter of Presentation (http://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=100&loi=5570).
I would like to thank all of the heralds who were kind enough to provided commentary.
The following items were RETURNED for further work:
Julia Alexandria - New Badge. Quarterly sable and gules, four phoenixes Or
Returned for lack of device (or incorrect form for submission if this is intended to be a device). The first piece of a person's registered armory is a device so a submitter must have a device registered (or in the process toward registration) before a badge. Julia's device, Per pale urdy Or fretty sable and sable, a phoenix Or, was returned on the August 2018 LoP (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2018-07-lop/1808-lor.html) and has yet to be resubmitted. If the submitter wishes for this to be a device instead, it needs to be submitted on the device form. Commentors also note that the phoenixes should be drawn much larger to fill their spaces on the field as they are barely large enough to be identified.

Yosef ben Yehudah - Device Resubmission (Kingdom). Sable, on a mullet of six points an owl displayed azure
Returned for a rework. The owl continues to be more in the striking affronty posture rather than the displayed posture. A properly done owl displayed can found at http://heraldicart.org/owl/ and https://oscar.sca.org/showimage.php?I=2942/2018-12-19/21-09-34_owl-displayed-1.png. Commentors and Kingdom suggest elogating the body so the wings can be lowered and the legs outstretched in the proper 'displayed' posture within the constraints of the mullet.

The following items were PENDED by Castle Herald:
Ivar "Halftroll" Thorgrimsson
Need to complete the name submission form
Need to provide complete documentation write-up and working links
Tiberious Valerious Germanicus
Need to submit electronic copy of documentation notes
Uchtred se hæþen
Need to submit 300 DPI, full page scans of documentation
All submissions should follow the guidelines at: http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/#castle_instructions. In particular, citations used for name documentation that are not on the No Photocopy list must include a copy of the source material. Generally, this includes the cover or the colophon, and the page where the name item is documented. Please see SENA Appendix H for more details: http://heraldry.sca.org/admin.html#APPENDIXH
The following items were PENDED by Rampart Herald for further discussion:
Angelica Sabine - New Device. Gules, a plum slipped and leaved Or, in chief argent, a length of broken chain sable, a base wavy argent
Device pended to get new art as the base is too large, the chief and chain are far too small, and the plum looks like a heraldic apple rather than a plum.
Angelica Sabine - New Household Name & New Badge. House Sabine & Gules, a dragonfly Or, in chief argent a length of broken chain sable, a base wavy argent
Household Name pended to get approval to make a change to House of Sabine which is the proper structure for the name but submitter allows no changes. Badge pended to get new art as the base is too large, the chief and chain are far too small.
Bernardo dei Medici - New Badge. Gyronny arrondi of twelve argent and sable, a wagon, its front wheel broken, Or
Pended to get new art as the wagon is too small and the broken wheel isn't identifiable as broken - the break should be more obvious and, perhaps, affecting more than a single spoke.
Johan von Horne - New Device. Per pale, azure and sable, a musimon argent between three estoiles pierced Or
Pended to get a line drawing as having part of the field mostly colored in with sable does not qualify the submitted form as a line drawing.
The following items were forwarded to Laurel Sovereign for final determination:
Angelica Sabine - New Name. [See Rampart's Pends for Device, Household Name & Badge]
Elizabeth Winter - New Name Change.
Johan von Horne - New Name. [See Rampart's Pends for Device]
Kolgríma Nikolásdóttir - New Device Change. Per saltire arrondi gules semy of triangles Or and sable, two owls respectant argent
Outlands, Kingdom of the - Heraldic Title Resubmission. Gold Castle Herald
Rio de Las Animas, Shire of - New Badge. Or, on a chevron wavy azure three morions argent
Svanhildr Úlfsdóttir - New Name & New Device. Per fess gules and azure, three swans naiant counterchanged argent and Or
Thus ends the December 2018 Letter of Response.
