2: Darius Freeman - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name on the Lochac LoI of April 30, 2015 as submitted.

(Fieldless) A clenched gauntlet fesswise aversant to sinister, maintaining a sheaf of arrows, Or

The gauntlet is also a sinister gauntlet, and inverted (although that last is implied by "sinister", "averted", "to sinister", and basic topology). We don't know if all that requires blazoning. If so, then "a clenched sinister gauntlet fesswise aversant to sinister, ..."

(Fieldless) A falcon stooping maintaining a quiver of three arrows fesswise, Or

4: Lilion de Ardmacha - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Lochac LoI of January 30, 2016 as submitted.

Per bend argent and vert, two trilliums counterchanged

This is a resubmission of the device returned in the April 2016 LoAR:

Lilion de Ardmacha. Device. Per bend argent and vert, a trillium vert.

This device is returned for conflict with the badge of Gryffyn Dunham: (Fieldless) A trefoil inverted vert. There is a DC for the difference between fieldless and fielded design. However, precedent states:

While there is a CD between a trillium and a trefoil, as Laurel ruled in the June 2005 registration of Ástríðr in spaka's device, there is not a CD between a trillium inverted and a trefoil. [Sorcha inghean Uí Lorcain, 04/2007, R-Artemisia]

If there is no DC between a trillium inverted and a trefoil, there cannot be a DC between a trillium and a trefoil inverted, and thus this is a conflict.

This device does not conflict with the badge of Ireland (Important non-SCA badge), (Fieldless) A shamrock vert, or the device of Myles of the Shamrock, Argent, a shamrock vert. In both cases there is a DC for the field and another DC for the difference between a trillium and a shamrock.

There is a step from period practice for the use of a New World trillium.

This redesign clears the cited conflict.

5: Lochac, Kingdom of - New Badge

OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.

Argent, an ash tree eradicated vert, and on two flaunches azure, two morters and pestles argent

This submission is to be associated with Herb and Garden Guild

"Herb and Garden Guild" is meant to be a generic designator.

6: Nikephoros Gorgonites - New Name & New Device

Quarterly azure and argent, a stag's head cabossed counterchanged

The Prosopography of the Byzantine world database has:

<Nikephoros Hexakionites> [Νικηφόρῳ ῾Εξακιονίτῃ], mid-11th century. (http://db.pbw.kcl.ac.uk/pbw2011/entity/person/160258). The Greek original is in the dative case, corresponding to a nominative for the given name of <Νικηφόρος>, meaning "Victory-bearer".

<Basileios Gorgonites> [Βασίλειος Γοργονίτης], krites ("judge") of the velon ("artillery"?) and megas chartoularios ("great chartoularios") of the oikeiaka ("household"?). Mid- to Late-11th century. (http://db.pbw.kcl.ac.uk/pbw2011/entity/person/120209)
