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: Eastwatch, Shire of - New Device Change

Quarterly vert and argent, on a tower sable issuant from its roof a beacon flame proper, a laurel wreath Or.

ROUGE SCARPE: Pended for redraw. The flame was not emblazoned correctly for a flame proper as drawn the flame is not blazonable. I have redrawn this with a correct flame but since this is a group submission a petition is required so this item is being pended to give the group time to approve the redraw and create a new petition. 


2: Geneviefve Jaquiline de Gris - New Name & New Device

Azure semy de lys argent a wolf sejant argent.

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel as <Geneviefve Jaqueline de Gris>. The spelling of the second given name as <Jaquiline> was a typo on the ILoI. Device forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: Azure semy de lys argent, a wolf sejant argent.

3: Gregoire de Lyon and Giovanna Adimari - New Badge

Gules, a stag's head erased argent gorged of a baronial coronet Or within a bordure ermine.

ROUGE SCARPE: Forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: Gules, a stag's head erased argent gorged of a baronial coronet Or within a bordure ermine.


4: Guillelmus de Normandie - New Name

ROUGE SCARPE: Returned for presumption with William I of England. William I of England was known as Guillaume de Normandie; Guillaume le Bâtard; Guillaume le Conquérant; William of Normandy; William the Bastard; William the Conqueror in period.


5: Kadem bint Kismet - New Name & New Device

Sable on a pile Or, a bat sable.

ROUGE SCARPE: Returned for conflict with Thorvald inn Grimmi (Badge, January 1974): Gules, a vampire bat displayed sable, and Thomas the Diaemus (Device, June 1973): Vairy vert and argent, a bat displayed sable. Both have one DC for the field but no other difference.

7: Lucius Antonius Ursus - New Name & New Device

Sable, a bear print and bordure argent.

ROUGE SCARPE: Name forwarded to Laurel. Device forwarded to Laurel with the blazon: Sable, a bear print and bordure argent. The submitter should be aware that the bordure should be drawn much thicker but it is our hope that an artist note should be sufficient. The use of pawprints is a step from period practice.
