6: Irene MacKenny -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2015, via An Tir.

Argent, a dragon displayed purpure, maintaining with its raised dexter foreleg an open book sable, a ordure engrailed azure.

The submitter's branch is Wyewood.

A previous version of this device was returned in the July 2017 LOAR with the following text:

This device must be returned for redraw. The lack of internal detailing of the book combined with its placement overlaying the silhouette of muzzle, foot and wing, obscured the secondary charge to the point where it was difficult to identify. While this might have been passed with an artist's note in the past, as of the precedent set in August 2015, maintained charges count for difference and must function as secondary charges.

The posture of a winged creature "displayed" in SCA blazon has the body facing forward (affronty) with limbs set symmetrically on either side of the torso, and the head facing to dexter by default. On three separate occasions during the transition, this variation of a dragon displayed with a torso twisted to dexter and the limbs arranged unevenly, has been registered with an artist's note to "Please make sure that the belly scales are in the center of the body, with flanks showing on either side and with the limbs displayed equally, to be more properly displayed." It appears that most of these depictions are coming directly or indirectly from the Pennsic Traceable Art Project. We are in the process of pulling this depiction from the project. Absent documentation, we will cease to register any depictions of animate charges displayed with the torso twisted to dexter or sinister as of the January 2018 decision meeting. Note that even an acceptably drawn dragon displayed remains a step from period practice.


7: Keina verch Wilim ap Eynon -New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 2015, via An Tir.

Argent, between a triquetta and celtic cross sable, a bend purpure.
