Greetings unto all who read these words from Meister Konrad Mailander, Rouge Scarpe Herald,

 

This is the Middle Kingdom Letter of Acceptances and Returns for the items on the April 9th, 2013 ILoI.  

  

My thanks to Aryanhwy merch Catmael, Gunnvor silfraharr, Chaya Simcha bat Yonah, Kseniia Nikolaeva doch', ffride wlffsdotter, Alys Mackyntoich, and Hiordis Ragnarsdottir for their commentary.  

 

Since the letters are now being posted on OSCAR with documentation and commentary open for all to see I will no longer be copying the documentation or commentary to this letter.  If you would like to see the documentation or commentary for this letter please go to http://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingloi.php?kingdom=4&loi=1853

 

SENA refers to The Standards for Evaluation of Names and Armory.  These are the new rules for submissions. 

 

My decision and comments are prefaced with ROUGE SCARPE: and are in red.  Items that are accepted will be forwarded to Laurel as a Middle LoI posted on OSCAR.
