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


This is the Middle Kingdom Letter of Acceptance and Returns for the items on the December 10th, 2014 ILoI.

My thanks to Piotr Zavilov, Modar Neznanich, and Grķmólfr Skślason for their commentary.

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=2992

SENA refers to The Standards for Evaluation of Names and Armory, the current 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: Faraldr Sųrkvir - New Device

Or, a chevron rompu purpure between three grenades sable.

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: Or, a chevron rompu purpure between three grenades sable.



2: Runvišrstaš, Shire of - New Branch Name & New Device

Per pale sable and azure, a bordure Or, palewise a norse sun-cross Or surmounted by a laurel wreath argent and a roundel argent.

ROUGE SCARPE:  Name forwarded to Laurel as <Runvišarstašr, Shire of>. The name needs to be in the genitive form, genitive form of <Runvišr> is <Runvišar>. In the documentation provided the word meaning stead is <stašr> and not <staš> this has been changed to match the documentation. Device forwarded to Laurel with the blazon:
Per pale sable and azure, in pale a Norse sun-cross Or within a laurel wreath and a roundel argent, a bordure Or.



3: Runvišrstaš, Shire of
- New Badge

Per pale sable and azure, bendwise a norse sun-cross Or and a roundel argent.

ROUGE SCARPE:  Returned for violation of SENA A.6.F. Claims through Marshaling "Arms combined using the per pale field division generally combined either marital arms or the arms of an individual and an office. They are often called impaled arms and were not inherited." (http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#A6F) This appears to be; Sable, a Norse sun-cross Or impaled with Azure, a roundel argent. If the design was rotated 90 degrees making it a per fess line of division the appearance of marshaling would be removed. Also the charges could be moved to overlap the line of division, which would also remove the appearance of marshaling. If the submitter would like to see what these look like they can check the Kingdom LoI as one of the commenters provided images of these options.




4: Tristan Silvertoes
- New Name & New Device

Per fess sable and argent, a left footprint per fess argent and gules.

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel. Device forwarded to Laurel with the blazon:  Per fess sable and argent, a sinister footprint per fess argent and gules. The use of a footprint is a step from period practice (SFPP). One SFPP is allowed.
