Outlands College of Heralds

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 April 2019 CE, ruling on the March 2019 Letter of Presentation (http://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=100&loi=5749).
I would like to thank all of the heralds who were kind enough to provided commentary.
The following items were RETURNED for further work:
Gráinne inghean úi Uilliam - New Device. Azure, a bend between a loaf of bread and a garb of wheat Or
Returned for conflict with Elaine of the Lion's Tale (05/1980 via Atenveldt): Azure, a bend between a lion sejant and a quill pen bendwise Or (Only 1 DC for type of secondaries), and Scrope (12/1994 via Laurel): Azure, a bend Or (Only 1 DC for addition of secondaries).
Marisse de Bourgogne - New Device. Argent, a pegasus rampant to sinister sable, on a gore sinister purpure a chamfron argent
Device returned for a rework as charged gores have not be permitted since November 1991 (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/1991/11/cvr.html). Emblazon: https://oscar.sca.org/images/emblazons/Outlands/2019-03/marisse-c.png
Nastas'ia Zvir'eva zhena L'vova - Device Resubmission (Laurel). Per chevron thoughout argent and sable, two sprigs of ivy vine bendwise and bendwise sinister azure and a lynx rampant guardant argent
Returned for a rework. While the new placement of the ivy vines does clear part of the prior reason for return, it runs afoul of Unity of Posture as both sprigs need different descriptors in the blazon and need to be blazoned seperately from the lynx. Laurel did state the following, on the LoAR for the return: 'Upon resubmission, please depict the vine of the ivy in a reasonably straight and orientable line; if the general design of the rest of the device is kept, please ensure that the arrangement of the ivy doesn't have to be blazoned separately from the lynx.' This design does not heed that information. Commentors also noted that a single line of ivy would be more identifiable and not run afoul of blazoning issues as this (and the prior submission) was more "art" than heraldry. One suggestion was to do Per chevron instead of Per chevron throughout and have a single vine of ivy in chief (across the top).
