This is a supplemental internal letter. Commentary on it will close on the normal day (the 26th). Enjoy,

1: Aleah de Spencer -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2015, via Artemisia.

Sable, a roundel within eight goutes in annulo points outward Or.

The previous iteration of this armory (a device) Per chevron inverted enhanced gules and azure, in pale a fret issuant from the line of division and a Macedonian sun Or. was returned by Laurel on Oct 2015 with the following language:

This device is returned for not being reliably blazonable, which is a violation of SENA A1C which requires an emblazon to be describable in heraldic terms. The Macedonian sun was documented as an artistic motif from ancient Greece through the Byzantine empire. Depictions showed mullets of a variable number of points, generally fracted with the fragments at the same or different distances from a central roundel. As such, a Macedonian sun is not reliably blazonable and cannot be registered.

Although looking like a low contrast gules chief triangular on azure, the field can reasonably be blazoned as Per chevron inverted enhanced gules and azure, a pattern that is grandfathered to the submitter.

The previous iteration is images 1 and 2.

2: Bronzehelm, Barony of -New Order Name & New Badge

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

Order of Saint Hildegarde of Bingen

(Fieldless) A open book azure charged with crossed quill pens Or.

Hildegarde of Bingen was a German Benedictine abbess, writer, composer, philosopher, Christian mystic, visionary, and polymath. She is considered to be the founder of scientific natural history in Germany.

Although the history of her formal consideration is complicated, she has been recognized as a saint by branches of the Roman Catholic Church for centuries. On 7 October 2012, Pope Benedict XVI named her a Doctor of the Church.

This follows the pattern of 'order of saint's name' as listed in Medieval Secular Order Names

by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith), Siren Herald, found at http://heraldry.sca.org/names/order/new/

This pattern is the second most common pattern found in our period of study, as shown in the chart at the beginning of the article.

3: Bronzehelm, Barony of -New Order Name & New Badge

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

Order of the Acorn of Bronzehelm

(Fieldless) An acorn azure

The acorn is the fruit of the oak tree; for that reason, it was considered a symbol of latent strength. It's a period charge, found in the arms of Gilsburgh or Gillsborough, c.1490 [DBA2 350]. The acorn's Society default is with stem to chief, which seems to be the opposite of medieval convention.

his follows the pattern of 'order of heraldic charge' as listed in Medieval Secular Order Names by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith), Siren Herald, found at http://heraldry.sca.org/names/order/new/

This pattern is the most common pattern found in our period of study, as shown in the chart at the beginning of the article.

Adding the group name (as allowed by SENA C.2.f.) gives the total award name.

4: Bronzehelm, Barony of -New Order Name & New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 1992, via Atenveldt.

Order of the Anvil of Bronzehelm

(Fieldless) An anvil azure

An Anvil is a period object. Information from the online version of the online Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry, under the header of 'anvil' has this information:

An anvil is an iron block on which metalware is hammered into shape. It's a period charge, found in the arms of Wolstone, temp. Henry VI [DBA1 9]. In English heraldry, the unmodified term "anvil" refers to the armorer's anvil [Franklyn 12]: portable, with a spike on the bottom for fixing it in place during use. If this form is intended in the Society, it must be explicitly blazoned.

In Society heraldry, the unmodified term "anvil" usually refers to the blacksmith's anvil. The number of horns, unless specified, is left to the artist; both double-horned anvils (also called "bickerns") and single-horned anvils are documented period artifacts. A "square anvil" is one with no horns.

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

Order of the Bronzehelm B

(Fieldless) A helm affronty Or charged with a 'beord' rune sable

This order name is a combination of the group name (allowed by SENA C.2.f.) and a single symbol - a letter B.

Letters are heraldic charges (or symbols) and thus this follows the pattern of 'order of heraldic charge' as listed in

Medieval Secular Order Names by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith), Siren Herald, found at http://heraldry.sca.org/names/order/new/

This pattern is the most common pattern found in our period of study, as shown in the chart at the beginning of the article.

Order of the Rivet of Bronzehelm

In the Letter of Acceptances and Returns dated to August, 2014, the Barony of Unser Hafen, in the Kingdom of the Outlands, registered an order name as 'Order of the Rivet'. Part of that acceptance states:

'Rivets are a period artifact, and thus are a plausible heraldic charge that can be used as the basis of an order name.'

This follows the pattern of 'order of heraldic charge' as listed in Medieval Secular Order Names by Juliana de Luna (Julia Smith), Siren Herald, found at http://heraldry.sca.org/names/order/new/

This pattern is the most common pattern found in our period of study, as shown in the chart at the beginning of the article.

Adding the group name (as allowed by SENA C.2.f.) gives the total award name.

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

Order of the Rock

(Fieldless) A rock Or

A rock is a physical object that has been used in heraldry before.

From the online version of the Pictorial Dictionary of Heraldry, 3rd edition, is this information under the entry 'rock':

A rock is an irregular mass of stone; it is also called a "stone", though that usually implies a smaller mass. When used as an independent charge, the rock is drawn lumpishly to distinguish it from a roundel. Rocks are found in the canting arms of Pedrosa, c.1540 [Nobreza xvi].
