Greetings unto the College of Arms, from Stefanu de Mohac, Albion.

It is the intent of the Drachenwald College of Heralds that the following submission be registered.

1: Aelric of Battle - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 1994, via Drachenwald.

Sable, a wyvern erect between three crosses formy argent.

The name Aelric of Battle was registered in February of 1994 (via Drachenwald).

The device was returned in the July 1996 LoAR:

Aelric of Battle. Device. Per bend sinister sable and gules, a wyvern erect, wings addorsed, argent.

This is being returned for conflict with Brychan Tammas (SCA) Gyronny Or and azure, a dragon segreant argent. There is one CD for the field, but nothing for the difference between a wyvern erect and a dragon segreant.

The added three crosses clear the conflict with Brychan Tammas.


2: Caitriona of the Raven - New Blanket Permission to Conflict

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in February of 2014, via Drachenwald.

Scan of the original will be provided with the packet:

I grant permission to any future submitter to register a name that is not identical my registered name. I understand that this permission can be withdrawn by written notice to the Laurel Sovereign of Arms, but that conflicting items registered while it is in force will remain registered.

Per bend sinister vert and argent, a dove volant and a single-arched bridge counterchanged.

Warmin of Belshire, reg. 11/80 via Atenveldt: Per bend sinister vert and argent, a dove counter-volant and a sword counterchanged. "There's just the DC for sword vs. bridge."

The change in dove direction adds another DC to clear the conflict with Warmin of Belshire.

10: Kingeslake, College of - Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2015, via Drachenwald.

Quarterly argent and Or, a phoenix rising from flames within a laurel wreath gules.

The submission includes a petition; scan of the original will be provided with the packet:

We the undersigned members and officers of the College of Kingeslake affirm that we approve of the resubmission of the device, "Quarterly argent and Or, a Pheonix[sic] Rising from flames within a Laurel Wreath gules.

(dated, seven signatures)

The device was returned in LoAR 05-2015:

Kingeslake, College of. Device. Quarterly argent and Or, a phoenix gules rising from flames proper within a laurel wreath gules.

This device must be returned for a contrast issue. Flames proper, as correctly depicted here, show alternating tongues of Or and gules. Therefore a significant proportion of the flames lie on and have no contrast with an Or quarter of the field. This problem could be solved by either changing the tincture of the flames or by changing the tincture of the field.

Changing the flames to gules instead of proper resolves the contrast issue.
