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 May 6th, 2013 ILoI.
My thanks to Aryanhwy merch Catmael, Jeanne Marie Lacroix, Maridonna Benvenuti, Etienne Le Mons, Duncan Cameron, 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=1959
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.
1: Bertholmeu MacMolan - Resub Device
Or, a triquetra vert and a chief potent.
ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Or, a triquetra vert and a chief potent.
2: Galin Ridleye - New Name & New Device
Quarterly azure and argent, a cock's head erased Or.
ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Quarterly azure and argent, a cock's head erased Or. There are two possible conflicts; Adelaide Walcheman (reg. 12/1986 via Ansteorra), "Azure, a peacock's head couped Or," and Hugh Louis (reg. 05/1984), "Per chevron dovetailed Or and sable, in base an eagle's head erased Or." Both have one distinct change for the field and the different type of bird heads may give the second. This is a judgment that will need to be made at the Laurel level so this device is being sent forward.
3: Genevieve Perrin - New Name & New Device
Argent, a green hawk hooded and jessed sable, and on a chief vert two hands apaumy in fess fingers outward argent.
ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel. Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Argent, a hawk vert hooded and jessed sable, on a chief vert a pair of hands wrists to center argent. This is a resubmission. The original submissions under the name <Eva Perron> were returned by Laurel November 2011 via the Middle.
4: Pietro de Sant'Agata di Militello - New Name & New Device
Agent, a beard sable and a tierce vert.
ROUGE SCARPE: Name Forwarded to Laurel. Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Agent, a beard sable and a tierce vert. There is a step from period practice for the use of a charge with a tierce, but that is the only one.
5: Pietro de Sant'Agata di Militello - New Badge
(Fieldless) A beard vert.
ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: (Fieldless) A beard vert.
