11: Emeloth MacEwen - New Device

Azure, a compass star argent and in chief in inverted chevron five daisies proper within a bordure argent.

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: Azure, a compass star argent, in chief five daisies proper in chevron inverted, a bordure argent.


12: Eustace Kilpin - New Name

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel.


13: Finn O'Connor - New Badge

Azure, a bend sinister sable fimbriated argent.

ROUGE SCARPE: Returned for conflict. SENA A.5.C. "Fimbriated charges are considered as a base charge (with the fimbriation being an artistic detail worth no difference), or as a base charge with a tertiary charge." http://heraldry.sca.org/sena.html#A5C This conflicts with Corwynn of Thornwood: February of 1975 (via the West): Azure, on a bend sinister argent a thorned slip embowed throughout sable. Considering the desired badge as an argent bend charged with a tertiary sable bend, we get one DC for the type of tertiary charge, but no other DC's. This was incorrectly listed on the ILoI as a Badge submission, it was actually a Device submission.


14: Gianna Vettori - New Badge

(Fieldless) A flamingo statant contourney sable.

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: (Fieldless) A flamingo statant contourney sable.


15: Ian Gartloch - New Device

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: Argent a compass star vert within a bordure sable semy of holly leaves argent. This item was incorrectly listed as a New Device on the ILoI, it is actually a resubmission.


16: Lynne Fairchild - New Name Change

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel.


17: North Woods, Barony of the - Resub Badge

Azure, a sun Or within three wolves in annulo courant argent, a bordure Or.

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: Azure, a sun Or within three wolves in annulo courant argent, a bordure Or.


18: Roana Aldinoch - Resub Badge

Checky Or and vert, on a lozenge sable a badger's paw print Or.

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: Checky Or and vert, on a lozenge sable a badger's paw print Or.


19: Rycheza Tkaczyc - New Name

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel as <Rycheza Tkaczycha>. The submitter indicated that they desired a feminine name meaning weaver in Polish. Tkacz is the masculine noun for weaver in Polish and the -yc is a masculine diminutive suffix. The equivalent feminine diminutive suffix is -ycha therefore we have changed the byname to the feminine form. The submitter should know that <Tkacz> without a suffix is also found as a byname so the feminine construction <Tkaczka> is plausible. If the submitter would prefer <Tkaczka> they should contact Rouge Scarpe before the end of September, 2015.


20: Þórfinnr Þengilsson - Resub Device

Argent a chevron gules, three dexter hands couped two and one gules.

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: Argent, a chevron gules between three dexter hands couped gules.


21: Viðarr Sælíingr Ketilsson - New Name

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel as <Viðarr sælingr Ketilsson>. Looking at the form the "s" in <sælingr> was not capitalized and the "íi" is a typo, the submitter used "í" but looking at my copy of Geir Bassi it should be "i",  sælingr is in italics in Geir Bassi and the slant on the dot of the "i" is from that.


22: Wulfwen atte Belle - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 1994, via the Middle

(fieldless) Issuant from a boot sable a tentacle vert maintaining a spoon fesswise Or.

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: (Fieldless) Issuant from a boot sable a tentacle vert maintaining a spoon fesswise Or.
