3: Alienor Salton -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 1993, via the East.

(Fieldless) A pig passant purpure

Consulting herald: Mathghamhain ua Ruadhain


4: Audrye Beneyt -Resub Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2010, via the East.

Sable, a fox rampant argent within an orle ermine

Old Item: Per pale sable and argent, a fox and a bear addorsed rampant counterchanged, and on a chief vert three arrows inverted argent, to be retained as a badge.

The original submission "Sable, a fox courant within an orle argent" was returned for confliting with Timothy of Long Bennington, "Sable, an aluant statant regardant and issuant from base a demi-sun argent."

We believe this redesign addresses the reasons for the return.


5: Audrye Beneyt -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2010, via the East.


6: Beatrice de Warynton -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2010, via the East.

Consulting herald: Alexandre Saint Pierre

Note: this corgi depiction is based on the recent registration from the badge of Estienne La Mons d'Anjou, and is used with his permission.


8: Chana Freidl the Maker -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the East LoI of September 25, 2017 as submitted.

Per bend sinister azure and purpure, a dragon segreant maintaining the two halves of a broken needle argent

Consulting herald: Lillia de Vaux

This device was returned on the September 2017 East Kingdom Letter of Decision. "This device is returned for a redraw as commenters and Blue Tyger found the needle to be unidentifiable. At the size drawn and, especially, in the broken form, it was difficult to identifiy as a needle. Without the needle, this device would conflict with the device of Brychan Tammas - [A-East, Jan1996 LoAR]: Gyronny Or and azure, a dragon segreant argent."

We feel that this redrawn device addresses the reasons for the prior return.

Argent, a bend sinister between a musical note and a shoe sole purpure

(Fieldless) A burnisher Or.

This submission is to be associated with Gilder, Order of the

The burnisher is a charge documented in PicDic3 as accepted based on a period artifact:

A burnisher is an artist's tool, used for rubbing and polishing gold leaf on vellum. It consists of a head or rubbing surface, made of polished ivory or hematite, mounted on a wooden handle. It is a period artifact: its construction, in this form, is described in Cennini's Libro dell'Arte, 1437. However, it doesn't appear to have been used in armory. The burnishing head is to chief by Society default.

However, the most recent (and only) registrations of this charge were in 1985, blazoned as a "houndstooth burnisher"[Gabriella Maddelena Pisano, A-East, July and Oct 1985 LoARs], and therefore it is likely that new documentation is required.

We request the assistance of the College in documenting this artifact so as to allow registration.

The submitted spelling appears in Flojótsdæla saga (1), part 7, and Egils saga Skalla-Grímssonar (2), part 51. In the former, the text is "Hann bjó á þeim bæ er í Jórvík heitir" [an English translation was not provided by the site, so (the then-serving) Eastern Crown's best guess was something about living at a farm in York (translation assistance is appreciated). In the latter the city appears in the sentence, "Jórvík er þar höfuðstaðr" (from the site's English translation: 'Its chief town is York'). The former source is in Icelandic, the latter is Old Norse. Flojótsdæla saga was written c. 1500 and the oldest transcription of Egils saga is from 1240 (it reports events from c.850-1000). It is not known if the transcriptions provided have been normalized.
