Atlantia Kingdom ILoI dated 2017-08-16

Unto Cian Triton, Beatrice Golden Dolphin, and the Atlantian College of Heralds does Catherine Ibis send warm greetings! This letter contains the submissions received between July 10th and August 10th. Commentary for this letter will close September 14th, 2017.

1: Adelaide of Roxbury Mill -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Atlantia LoI of April 30, 2017 as submitted.

Per pale purpure a semy of moline crosses or and argent, a mug counterchanged

Consulting Herald: Santiago Xavier

Submission History:

This is a resubmission following the April 2017 Kingdom return of "Per pale purpure and azure, an otter head to sinister couchant on its back, tail erect and head erect":

"This device is being returned for rework because by long standing precedent, we don't register inverted animate charges. Without documentation

demonstrating the use of an otter floatant in period medieval heraldry, we are unable to forward this to Laurel.

From the May 2009 LoAR:

"The SCA has general precedents against registering inverted animate charges unless they are part of a radially symmetrical group such as in annulo. These precedents are on the grounds that such inverted animals are generally not readily identifiable, and they are not found in period heraldry. However, the SCA also has a registration tradition of allowing animals which are usually found in a tergiant posture to be registered in the tergiant inverted posture.""


2: Alexa de Montoya -Resub Name

Alexa is found in Family Search Historical Records

3: Drogo Rainulf de Dragonera -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 1995, via Atlantia.

4: Eadgyth the Archer -New Device

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

Azure, an owl rising argent maintaining a crescent pendant and a chief Or semy of arrows azure

Consulting Herald: Herveus d'Ormonde


5: Eoin de Barri -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Atlantia LoI of September 30, 2016 as submitted.

Or, scaly vert, three piles in point argent

Consulting Herald: Gabriel the Traveler

Submission History:

This is a resubmission following the Kingdom return of the previously-submitted device "Sable, a per pile scaly, vert, with a bordure rayonny Or":

This device is being returned for redrawn for several reasons. First, the green and white scaled section cannot be a pile as piles were not issuant from the corners of the shield. The green and white section cannot be field divided per chevron inverted vert scaly argent and sable because a per chevron inverted line of division is issuant from the sides of the shield. It must also be balanced over the fess line of the shield. Second, the gold rayonny cannot be a fimbriation as we cannot fimbriate a field division, only primary charges can be fimbriated. If the pile was properly drawn, a fimbriation cannot have a complex line. Thirdly, the gold section on the field, cannot be considered a pile or per chevron inverted, as it has the same issues as green and white scaled section of the field. Finally the rayonny is improperly drawn, it needs to be drawn more symmetrical and less like waves cresting.


6: Feodosiia Alekseeva Zhena -New Device

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Feodosiia Alekseeva zhena in March of 2011, via Atlantia.

This is a resubmission following the April 2017 Kingdom return of "Per saltire azure and argent, in fess two serpents vorant of their own tails conjoined, a bordure sable":

This device is being returned for redraw, as the snake heads are very small and commenters had a difficult time identifying, the snakes as serpents vorant. If the serpent heads are drawn a little larger and not so close to azure section of the field, they would probably be easier to identify.

Consulting Herald: Maire inghean Dhunchain mhic Oisdealbhaigh

Submission history:

This is a resubmission after the Laurel return of his previous name, Tryggvi eldbrjotr, on the July 2016 LOAR:

"The byname was constructed to mean "fire breaker". All of the examples of X breaker, with the exception of volubrjotr "exorcist", involve tangible things such as fences, horns, graves, and people. Fire is not something that can be broken. Without evidence to show this name is plausible in our period, we cannot register it."

22: Xavier Crystal Keeper -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Atlantia LoI of September 30, 2016 as submitted.

Gules, a cockatrice above three chevronels interlaced Or

Consulting Herald: Gabriel the Traveler

Submission history:

This is a resubmission after the September 2016 Kingdom return of "Gules, between two eagles displayed argent, a pall inverted Or and in base a wolf couped argent":

This device is being returned for conflict with Franziska Gerdrudis Kesselheim "Gules, a pall inverted Or between two unicorns combattant argent and a natural tiger couchant argent marked sable". There is only 1 DC for type of secondaries, the charges don't have comparable postures so we can't get a DC for change of posture. Upon resubmission, please draw the pall a little larger and the intersection of the pall should be drawn closer to the fess line, so that the sections of the field are evenly divided. Also the erasures on wolf head need to be more prominent so one-sixth to one-third the total height of the charge being erased.


23: Zarra de la Vega -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2010, via Atlantia.
