Greetings unto Master Dafydd Blaidd, Dragon Herald, Barun Rory mac Feidhlimidh, Rouge Scarpe Herald, and the commenting members of the Midrealm
College of Heralds; from THL Geniveve Rose D'Glendalough, Escutcheon Herald.

This is a special "Lost Sheep" ILoI of submissions that were discovered in the Escutcheon files.

Please urge your local heralds and pursuivants to remind submitters to be sure they are using the correct forms.

Unless noted, clients will accept minor changes and a holding name.

All comments are due by August 15, 2008.
