An Tir KLOI from Central/Summits dated 2018-05-06

Greetings unto the An Tir College of Heralds from Elizabeth Lions Blood!

The following items were returned by Laurel in February 2018:

Blatha an Oir, Barony of. Order name Award of the Golden Bud.

This order name must be returned because it does not follow either a period naming pattern or a pattern already registered to the Barony of Blatha an Oir. A bud is not a heraldic charge. Rose buds have been disallowed in SCA heraldry since the November 1994 Cover Letter. A more recent ruling declined to register a tulip bud. [Alis ingen Fhinn, 8/2011 LoAR, R-Gleann Abhann]. This name likewise does not fall within the same pattern of the Order of the Golden Blossom or the Order of the Golden Bloom. Both blossoms and blooms are mature flowers.

The following items were returned by An Tir in April 2018:

Alrikr Ivarsson. New Device. Vert, three quavers Or.

This device is returned for conflict with An Tir, Kingdom of [June 1976], Vert, the letters X, L, C, two and one, Or. There is at most a single DC for changing letters to quavers.

6: Louisa of Lorne -Resub Device

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

Gules, a dog rampant reguardant Or maintaining in his upper paw an arrow bendwise sinister argent and on a point pointed Or a pair of sewing needles crossed in saltire azure

Louisa of Lorne. Device. Per chevron inverted gules and Or, in pale a talbot rampant regardant Or maintaining a weaver's shuttle argent and two needles in chevron inverted, crossed at the tips azure.

This device is returned for violation of SENA A3D2c, which requires that charges in the same charge group be in a unified orientation and arrangement. The needles are blazoned in an arrangement (in chevron inverted, crossed at the tips) separately from the dog, which is a co-primary charge.

8: Skjaldar-Þorsteinn -Resub Device

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

Quarterly sable and gules, in bend two bears dormant argent

The submitter's branch is Terra Pomaria.

The submitter's previous device was returned by Laurel in June 2017 as follows:

Skjaldar-Þorsteinn. Device. Quarterly sable and gules, in bend two bears dormant argent.

This device must be returned for redraw. Commenters were unable to identify the primary charges as bears dormant. As dormant is notorious for rendering the charges unidentifiable, submitters seeking to use the posture must take great care to make sure that all identifying features are featured in the charge, and that the charges themselves are large enough for easy recognition. In particular, the rounded ears should be more prominent and more clearly atop the head rather than pointing back from it. Upon resubmission, the submitter should center the charges in their respective quarters, and render them large enough to fill the available space.


9: Þóra Jórsalafari -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the An Tir LoI of March 18, 2018 as submitted.

Per chevron Sable and Gules a Wolverine passant Contourny, and in chief three mullets Argen

The submitter's branch is Stromgard.

The submitter's previous device was returned by An Tir in March 2018 as follows:

Þóra Jórsalafari. New Device. Per chevron sable and gules, a wolverine passant contourny and in chief three mullets argent.

This device is returned because commenters did not find it identifiable as a wolverine. We advise the submitter to include internal detailing, including the distinctive markings in the wolverine's fur, to make sure the animal looks sufficiently different from a wolf or bear.

Submitted with the concurrence of the Baron & Baroness, the Officers and populace of Three Mountains.

It is signed by the Baron & Baroness, Chronicler, Minister of Arts & Sciences, Seneschal, Chamberlain, Deputy Archery Marshal, and three members of the populace at large.

Azure, three piles Or surmounted by a base indented of three points argent

Old Item: , to be retained as a badge.
This submission is to be associated with Order of the Mountain Sun

The submitter included the following letter:

Greeting to Lion's Blood Herald and the College of Arms from Kateline, Mountains Pursuivant,

It has recently come to my attention that the badge registered to the Barony of Three Mountains for the Order of the Mountain Sun has a problem. The emblazon does not match the blazon, and the blazon is what the Barony wants registered. Therefore, with the concurrence of the Baron & Baroness, the Officers and populace of Three Mountains, I send this submission to replace the badge currently registered.
