Outlands Kingdom ILoI dated 2017-02-28

Unto the Outlands College of Heralds, our respected friends and colleagues who give freely of their time to provide commentary, and all others who come by these letters, on this 28th day of February, A.S. LI (2017 CE), does Lord Gauvain Eisenbein send greetings on behalf of Master Angus Reid MacFarlane, White Stag Principal Herald.

Here follows the Kingdom of the Outlands' Letter of Presentation for February, 2017.

Anyone may comment upon the items found herein, and e-mail commentary to the herald's commentary list is encouraged. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome. Please have comments on items contained herein to Rampart Herald by March 14th, 2017, for the decision meeting on March 15th, 2017. As a reminder, the College of Arms requests commentary on all items, including appeals.

There were several items that remain pended this month. Submissions heralds are strongly urged to review the guidelines at: "http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/#castle_instructions", as items not meeting these guidelines will be pended.

5: Jethro Stille -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2002, via the Outlands.

Azure, three swords in pall inverted crossed at the hits and a bordure embattled Or

From the submitter:

While I am not a member of the Order of Defense nor have I been offerred admittance, I bring forth this badge nonetheless as much as a matter of discussion as anything. I believe that it does not conflict with the badge of the Order of Defense as the Order's badge is crossed at the tips and mine is notably crossed at the hilts (to mention nothing of tinctures).

Consulting herald: Jethro Stille

Branch: Caerthe

Correction to Badge (2017-Mar-01 21:03:40): Blazon should be: Azure, three swords in pall inverted crossed at the hilts and a bordure embattled Or


6: Ottarr Hallbiornson -Resub Name & Resub Device

Azure, an otter rampant guardant contourny argent maintaining an axe, blade to sinister, a chief embattled Or

The previous submissions, Ottarr Hallbjornsonn and Azure, an otter rampant guardant contourny argent maintaining an axe, blade to sinister, a chief embattled Or, were returned on the December 2016 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2016-11-lop/1612-lor.html) with the following: {The name is returned for construction issues with Hallbjornsonn. The correct construction appears to be Hallbjarnarson but, due to the submitter's request for no major changes and several available construction options, Kingdom was unable to make this change. Commentors also noted other construction options in the ILoI for the submission. The device is returned for a redraw and lack of name to go up with it. The embattlement should be as deep/tall as it is wide. The otter and axe should be a bit larger to fill the space and aid in the identifiability of both.}

[Ottarr] - Found on St Gabriel website and taken from The Old Norse Name, by Geirr Bassi Haraldsson (a.k.a. Dr. G. Fleck), and augmented by Einar Arnórsson's Landnámabók Íslands.
