8: Flame, Barony of the - New Order Name

 

Award of the Gold Flame

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Award Name forwarded to Laurel. We believe it to be clear of Order of the Golden Flame, by NPN.3.C.2, which says in part: "For example, the Shire of Charford is substantially different from Shire of Northcharford, as a syllable is removed. Similarly, House of Charring is substantially different from House of Charring Cross, as a syllable is removed." since a syllable has been removed from Golden.

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Sable, an arm embowed issuant from sinister proper sustaining a lit torch Or enflamed proper. This is actually a resubmission.

 


 

10: Genevieve de Mirabel - New Name & New Device

 

Per pall Or, gules and azure, three ermine spots sable argent and argent.

 

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel. No documentation was provided for this name. Commenters were able to document <Genevieve> as a French given name and <de Mirabel> as an English locative byname. This makes the name registerable as submitted but we are not able to meet the authenticity request for French at this time.

Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Per pall Or, gules and azure, three ermine spots sable argent and argent.

 


 

11: Gwenllian verch Rhydderch Annwyl - New Badge

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel. Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Vert, a sun in his splendor Or eclipsed gules.

Michael Eremita da Corilione

 

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel.

Argent, a winged demi-lion rampant reguardant gules maintaining an open book argent bound sable issuant from a ford proper

 

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Argent, a winged demi-lion rampant reguardant gules maintaining an open book argent bound sable issuant from a ford proper.

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel. Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Barry wavy argent and azure, on a chief wavy azure a dove volant argent maintaining an olive branch fructed and leaved proper.

 


 

21: Mychell Urquhart - New Device

 

Vert, in fess a sword sustained by a mermaid maintaining a palm frond Or.

 

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Vert, in fess a sword sustained by a mermaid maintaining a palm frond Or. There is a possible conflict: Valeria Richila Navarro (reg. 12/1996 via Ansteorra), "Vert, a mermaid affronty, bearing a rapier and a buckler, within a bordure Or." There's a DC for changing the type of the secondary (SENA A.5.G.4) from a bordure to a sword. Though the sword is large enough to be considered sustained it may not be large enough to be considered co-primary. We are sending this up for a ruling by Wreath.

 


 

22: Mychell Urquhart - New Badge

 

 (Fieldless) A gillyflower Or seeded gules slipped vert conjoined in base to two palm fronds in chevron inverted Or.

 

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: (Fieldless) A gillyflower Or seeded gules slipped and leaved vert conjoined in base to two palm fronds in chevron inverted Or.  

 


 

23: Órlaith inghean Íomhar - New Name & New Device

 

Argent, a squirrel rampant sable maintaining a roundel Or.

 

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel as <Órlaith inghean Íomhair>. In Gaelic, the father's name needs to be in the genitive (possessive) form in order to create a patronymic. The genitive form of <Íomhar> is <Íomhair>.

 

Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Argent, a squirrel rampant sable sustaining a roundel Or. The color and black and white emblazons produced at Pennsic were different. The main difference was the size of the roundel. The color emblazon had a roundel large enough to be sustained and the black and white had one that may have been enough smaller to be considered maintained. A blazonable difference between emblazons is reason for return. Also if the roundel is maintained it does not count for difference and there are conflicts: 1) Finn O'Flaherty (reg. 02/2008 via Meridies)), Argent, a squirrel rampant azure maintaining a four-leaf clover slipped purpure. One CD for the tincture of the squirrel. 2) Dieter des Schwarzen Eichkätchens (reg. 06/1985 via the Middle), "Per pale gules and argent, a squirrel sejant erect sable maintaining a sword inverted argent." By SENA Appendix L, part A, there is not a DC between rampant and sejant erect. One DC for the field. We have used the color emblazon to create a new black and white emblazon to avoid this problem with the submitter’s approval.

 


 

24: Porcia Vera - New Alternate Name

 

{Ae}thelflæd Ricbert

 

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel as <Æthelflæd Ricbert>. We have no idea why the first letter Da’uded text ({Ae}) was used but the second “æ” did not.


25: Porcia Vera - New Name & New Device

 

Per chevron purpure and argent, two retorts stems outward argent and a dragon passant vert.

 

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel. Device was withdrawn by the submitter. They should be aware that they can resubmit as if it was returned at a later date.

 


 

26: Seto Gesshuko - New Name & New Device

 

Vert, three triangles conjoined one and two within and conjoined to an annulet argent.

 

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel as <Setoi Gentarou Masamune>. Unfortunately commenters could not find documentation to support <Seto Gesshuko> as a period name. The submitter provided documentation for the name being submitted and permission to change it to that if the preferred name could not be registered.

Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Vert, three triangles conjoined one and two within and conjoined to an annulet argent. The emblazon submitted was drawn with the annulet touching two sides of the escutcheon making it partially throughout which is a reason for return.
[April 2004 LoAR, R-Meridies] Nigel de Rothewelle. Device. Per pale purpure and sable, a lozenge counterchanged fimbriated argent. This violates RfS VII.7.b, Reconstruction Requirement. The lozenge touches the edge of the shield at exactly three points (not four), so it is not properly throughout, nor is it not throughout. The position is unblazonable, and RfS VII.7.b states "Elements must be reconstructible in a recognizable form from a competent blazon." The emblazon has been redrawn to avoid this problem with the submitters approval.

 


 

27: Sile inghean ui Raghallaigh - New Name & New Device

 

Vert, a set of bagpipes argent between three quatrefoil knots Or.

 

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel. The submitter should be aware that there should be accents over the i’s in <Síle> and <>. These are often not noticed when looking at the documentation since the accent mark looks a lot like the dot over the i. The submitter is permitted to omit all accent marks throughout the name so we have left it as submitted. If they would prefer the name with the accent marks they just need to contact me.

 

Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Vert, a set of bagpipes Or between three quatrefoil knots argent. The artist at Pennsic, despite being supplied with the 3rd edition Pic Dic picture of bagpipes, left off the blowstick. It is our opinion that the charge is still identifiable as bagpipes without it.


 

28: Spurius Furius Germanus - New Name & New Device

 

Sable, a fess gules fimbriated between a quill pen fesswise and a gladius fesswise argent.

 

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel. Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Sable, a fess gules fimbriated between a quill pen fesswise and a gladius fesswise argent. The fimbriation on the original was rather thin to nearly nonexistent below the fess. It has been redrawn with the permission of the submitter.

 


 

29: Toth Bálint - New Name & New Device

 

Per chevron gules and vert, a clenched gauntlet apaumy sustaining a crescent Or.

 

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel. Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Per chevron gules and vert, a clenched gauntlet apaumy sustaining a crescent Or.

 


 

30: William Alexander Larchier - New Name & New Device

 

Per fess Or and sable, a fess embattled counterembattled between three fleurs-de-lys counterchanged.

 

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel. Device forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: Per fess Or and sable, a fess embattled counterembattled between three fleurs-de-lys counterchanged.

 


 

31: Orn Askelsson - New Badge

 

(Fieldless) on a mountain of three peaks couped gules a wolf's head erased argent.

 

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel with the Blazon: (Fieldless) On a mountain of three peaks couped gules a wolf's head erased argent. The original emblazon had problems and this item was Pended on the September Pennsic ILoAR waiting reply from submitter to allow it to be redrawn. That permission was obtained and the items are being sent on with new art and forms.

 


 

32: Orn Askelsson - New Badge

 

 (Fieldless) on a mountain of three points couped azure a wolf's head erased argent.
