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 16th, 2014 ILoI.  

  

My thanks to Aryanhwy merch Catmael, Alys Mackyntoich, Gunnvor silfraharr, Basil Dragonstrike, Michael Gerard Curtememoire, Vettorio Antonello, Juetta Copin, ffride wlffsdotter, and Matilda Wynter 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=2825

 

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: Aiden McManus - New Name & New Device

 

Per chevron argent and vert, two axes addorsed sable and a deer's head erased argent.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel as <Aidan MacManus>. The only documentation provided for the spelling Aiden provided was that it was registered in 1992. Previous registration is no guarantee that an element is still registerable, especially one over 20 years old. The spelling of the given name has been changed to a documented spelling. The College does not register scribal abbreviations such as Mc- and thus it has been expanded from <McManus> to <MacManus>. 

Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Per chevron argent and vert, two axes addorsed sable and a deer's head erased affronty argent. The original emblazon had an erasure line that was far from good heraldic art possibly to the point of requiring return. With the submitters approval we have redone the erasure line and generated a new form.

 


 

2: Aislinn Celine de Richemont - Resub Device

 

Argent, within a wreath of roses proper a domestic cat sejant sable gorged of a ducal coronet Or.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Argent, a domestic cat sejant sable gorged of a ducal coronet Or within a wreath of roses proper.

 


 

3: Alianor bat Asriel - Resub Device

 

Purpure two camels in pale and on a bordure Or, an orle of roses purpure barbed vert and seeded Or.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Purpure, in pale two camels couchant Or, a bordure Or semy of roses purpure barbed and seeded proper.

 


 

4: Bartholomaeus Sapientium - New Name & New Device

 

Azure a squirrel rampant sinister maintaining a sword argent.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel as <Bartholomaeus Sapiens>. The name as submitted was not in the correct grammatically form. It has been corrected for the requested meaning of "the wise" in the normative form.

Device is returned for multiple conflicts: 1) Regana van Kortrijk (reg. 02/2002 via the Outlands), "Azure, a squirrel argent." There is a DC for the orientation of the charge, but none for the maintained sword or the posture. 2) Margaret Gresham (reg. 11/2009 via the East), "Azure, a squirrel contourny and a bordure embattled argent," with a DC for removing the bordure. 3) Aliskye Rosel (reg. 05/2010 via Caid), (Fieldless) A squirrel sejant erect contourny crowned of a pearled coronet and maintaining an acorn argent." There's one DC for fieldlessness under SENA A.5.G.1.e. However, there's not a DC for the postures; Appendix L.A. http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#AppendixL lists rampant and sejant erect together thus they conflict. Crowns on complete animals are not a DC, nor are maintained charges.

 


 

5: Cellach macCormaic - New Device

 

Per pale argent and lozengy argent and azure, a stag rampant azure gorged of a coronet Or, and on a chief azure three maltese crosses argent.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Per pale argent and lozengy argent and azure, a stag rampant azure gorged of a coronet Or, and on a chief azure three Maltese crosses argent. This was a Resubmission of a Device Change and not a New Device.

 


 

6: Folkrašr Freyriksson - New Name & New Device

 

Argent, a wolf's head couped contourney within a bordure invected sable.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel as <Folkrįšr Freyrķksson>. The form had the accent over the “i” but not the “a” but it got missed when being entered into OSCAR. Our rules allow the dropping of accents so long as it is done uniformly so it could be <Folkrašr Freyriksson> or <Folkrįšr Freyrķksson>. The submitter was consulted with and they preferred to keep both accents.

Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Argent, a wolf's head couped contourny within a bordure engrailed sable.
