An Tir KLOI from Central/Summits dated 2017-07-31

Greetings to Black Lion, Lion's Blood, and the An Tir College of Heralds!

Please find below this month's submissions. We appreciate your comments!

1: Anneke von Frankenstein -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the An Tir LoI of October 31, 2016 as submitted.

Per Chevron Inverted Purpure and Lozengy Purpure and Argent a Reremouse displayed Guardant Argent.

The submitter's branch is Glymm Mere.

A previous device submission, "Per chevron inverted purpure and lozengy purpure and argent, four mascles in cross argent," was returned on the January 2017 LOAR with the following text:

"This device is returned for conflict with the device of Lisabetta Davanzati: Quarterly azure and purpure, four mascles argent. There is a DC for changes to the field. However, Anneke's mascles' position is forced on the purpure portion of the field, so there is no additional DC for arrangement."


2: Annora of River Haven -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the An Tir LoI of May 31, 2017 as submitted.

Per chevron inverted purpure and argent a semy of oak leaves vert and in chief a swallow volant argent

The submitter's branch is Stromgard.

A previous version of this device was returned at the Kingdom level on May 31, 2017 with the following text:

"The swallow here is in an unblazonable orientation: neither entirely volant, which would be more truly horizontal, nor entirely volant bendwise sinister, which would be more truly diagonal. It is drawn in a slightly three-dimensional way, which may be contributing to the posture issue. Upon resubmission, the submitter should use a clear and blazonable orientation for the swallow."


3: Annora of River Haven -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name on the An Tir LoI of May 31, 2017 as submitted.

Fieldless; A swallow volant argent bearing in beak an oak leaf vert

The submitter's branch is Stromgard.

A previous version of this badge was returned at the Kingdom level on May 31, 2017, along with the device and probably sharing its return text, below:

"The swallow here is in an unblazonable orientation: neither entirely volant, which would be more truly horizontal, nor entirely volant bendwise sinister, which would be more truly diagonal. It is drawn in a slightly three-dimensional way, which may be contributing to the posture issue. Upon resubmission, the submitter should use a clear and blazonable orientation for the swallow."

11: Oliver Gelert -New Name & New Device

Oliver Gelert

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Meaning (Gelert refers to the fabled hound of Llewelyn the Great) most important.

The submitter's branch is Wyewood.

Oliver: "England Births and Christenings, 1538-1975," database, FamilySearch

(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J9WM-6X1 : 30 December 2014), Oliver Lawrence, 23 Aug 1612; citing WEST FARLEIGH,KENT,ENGLAND, reference ; FHL microfilm 992,519

Gelert: "England Births and Christenings, 1538-1975," database, FamilySearch

12: Rapheal the Rogue -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 1984, via Atenveldt.

A stag's head erased sable attired Or

The submitter's branch is Madrone.

A mirror image of this device, "(Fieldless) A stag's head erased contourny sable attired Or," was returned at the Kingdom level on March 31, 2017 with the following text:

"We believe this design conflicts with Argent, an elk's head couped close contourny sable, registered to Mungo Mor in September 2015. There is a single DC for a fieldless vs. fielded design. Although Rapheal's elk's attires are a different tincture, they do not carry half the visual weight of the charge and thus cannot count for difference (for changing at least half the tincture, per SENA A.5.G.3.a). Drawing the elk with significantly larger attires might clear this conflict."


Thank you again!
