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 September 4th 2013 ILoI, the first Pennsic ILoI.  

  

My thanks to Aryanhwy merch Catmael, Alys Mackyntoich, Aria Gemina Mala, Arwyn of Leicester, Kihō, ffride wlffsdotter, Alexander Adelbrecht von Markelingen, Maridonna Benvenuti, Estelle de la Mer, Jean Yves de Chierebourg, Gunnvor silfraharr, Modar Neznanich, Michael Gerard Curtememoire, Dragonstrike, Tanaka Ujimori, Vettorio Antonello, and Juetta Copin 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 https://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingloi.php?kingdom=4&loi=2803

 

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: Áine ingen Barddáin - New Device Change

 

Per bend sable and argent, two catamount's heads cabossed counterchanged.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Per bend sable and argent, two catamount's heads cabossed counterchanged.

 


 

2: Áine ingen Barddáin - New Badge

 

 (Fieldless) An ounce's head cabossed per bend argent and sable.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: (Fieldless) An ounce's head cabossed per bend argent and sable.

 


 

3: Atsur Heikkin - New Name & New Device

 

Per bend sable azure, two crescents argent

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel as <Atsur Heikan>. There was a large amount of commentary that yielded several options for more authentic spellings for the name. The submitter was contacted as to their preferences and after reviewing the commentary chose the spellings being forwarded on to Laurel. 

 


 

4: Beatrix Genevieve von dem Steren - New Name & New Device

 

Azure, a sunflower Or and in chief three mullets argent all within an orle Or

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel. The submitter may wish to know that a possible source may have been found for <van der Sterren> in a Dutch book so it may get changed at Laurel level to that preferred form. I did not make the change since the source is in Dutch and will need to be evaluated by Wreath. They should also be aware that <Genevieve> is not a Dutch name and thus the closest we can get is a name that combines French and Dutch which is registerable.

Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Azure, a sunflower Or and in chief three mullets argent all within an orle Or

 


 

5: Bianca Garbagnati - New Device

 

Azure, on a fess wavy between three duck legs argent, three otter heads proper.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Azure, on a fess wavy between three duck legs argent, three otter heads proper.

 


 

6: Caterina de Radclive - New Device

 

Per chevron Or and azure, two wolf's heads erased sable and a Catherine wheel argent.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Per chevron Or and azure, two wolf's heads erased sable and a Catherine wheel argent.

 


 

7: Claricia de la Mere - New Name Change & New Device

 

Argent, a fork and spoon in saltire sable, a base wavy azure.

 

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel.   Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Argent, a fork and spoon in saltire sable, a base wavy azure.

 


 

8: Claricia de la Mere - New Badge

 

 (Fieldless) a fork and spoon in saltire sable.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: (Fieldless) a fork and spoon in saltire sable.

 (Fieldless) A fox's tail bendwise Or and overall a pair of calipers argent.

 

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: (Fieldless) A fox's tail bendwise Or and overall a pair of calipers argent.

 


 

10: Dante Conciapelli da Firenze - New Badge

 

Per pale argent and vert, a fox's mask and a bordure Or.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Per pale argent and vert, a fox's mask and a bordure Or.

 


 

11: Drust arileth - New Name & New Device

 

Per bend sable and Or, a mullet of six points and a wolf's head ululant contourny erased counterchanged.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel as <Drust arilith>. The spelling attested in the documentation as well as other sources supplied in commentary is <arilith> not the submitted <arileth>. The name has been changed to the attested spelling.  <mac> only works in Pictish names if what follows is the father's given name. <arilith> is not document as a given name, but only as a byname. So, his request for <mac Arilith> won't work.   

Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Per bend sable and Or, a mullet of six points and a wolf's head ululant contourny erased counterchanged. There is a Step From Period Practice for the use of ululant but that is the only one.

 


 

12: Émann Mac an Ghabhann of Sligo - New Badge

 

 (Fieldless) On a baton Or, an ermine spot purpure

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: (Fieldless) On a baton Or, and ermine spot purpure. As submitted it was not a baton but a billet bendwise. Since a billet is a shape used for heraldic display and cannot be used for the defining shape of a fieldless badge since it then does not appear to be a charge but the field itself. The submitter was contacted and gave their permission to redraw the badge with the proportions appropriate for a baton. New forms will be generated with the reemblazon.

 


 

13: Eufamia Ross - New Name Change

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Forwarded to Laurel.

 


 

14: Foley Axeedge - New Name & New Device

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel. Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Sable, an owl displayed argent and on a chief Or two axes in saltire sable. There is a Step From Period Practice for an owl displayed but that is the only one.

 


 

15: Genevieve O'Connor - New Device

 

Per pale azure and purpure, a dragonfly bendwize within a bordure argent.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Per pale azure and purpure, a dragonfly bendwise within a bordure argent.

17: Ingvarr Sveinsson - New Name & New Device

 

Per chevron sable and argent, two valknuts and a wolf's head erased counterchanged.

 

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel. Device forwarded to Laurel. The submitter should be aware that there is a possible conflict with: Víkarr Bjřrnsson June of 2014 (via Trimaris): Per chevron sable and argent, two valknuts argent and a bear passant sable sustaining on its back a barrel gules. There is one DC for the change of the bear to a wolf’s head, there may be a second for the removal of the barrel. We are sending it on for Wreath to make that decision. The valknuts are drawn rather thin and should be drawn thicker.  

 

 


 

18: Lavender Amaria - New Name

 

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel. Lavender was documented as a surname and Amaria as a given name in period. The submitter was contacted and she indicated that <Lavender Amaria> was the intended order. There is the documented pattern of using bynames as given names in late period England. There was question about unmarked matronymics in late Period England but I found documentation for Amaria as a late period byname.

 


 

19: Lena Krieger - New Name

 

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel.

 


 

20: Marcell Eriksen - New Name & New Device

 

Per pall inverted argent, sable, and Or, three passion nails conjoined in pall inverted heads to center Or, sable, and argent.

Sable, a Russian firebird rising to sinister Or.

 

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel. Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Sable, a Russian firebird rising to sinister wings elevated addorsed Or. There is a possible conflict: George Silver Tongue March of 1978: "Vert, a gamecock springing to sinister, wings addorsed, Or." There is a DC for the field but we are unsure whether there is another for a gamecock vs. a Russian firebird. It is being sent on for further commentary and for Wreath to decide.

Note these were originally listed on the ILoI under the name < Ţóra Grímudóttir>. This was an error made at Pennsic, Ţóra was submitting these items on Bran’s behalf as well as her own name and device, her name accidently ended up on the forms for Bran’s submissions as well. Escutcheon was contacted about the mix up after the ILoI was published and issued a correction.
