Unto the Sovereigns and members of the College of Arms of the Society, does Khalidah bint Yahya'a, Rampart Herald send her greetings.

What follows is the September 2017 Letter of Intent for the Kingdom of the Outlands.

I would like to thank Magnus von Lübeck, Michael Gerard Curtememoire, and all of the heralds who were kind enough to contribute to internal commentary on OSCAR.

It is my intent to register this September the following items from the Outlands' College of Heralds.

1: Fálki Ásgeirsson - New Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in May of 2016, via the Outlands.

Or, two dragons combatant gules, in base three drinking horns interlaced in annulo azure

Old Item: Gules, a bend between two scorpions bendwise sinister, heads to center argent, to be retained as a badge.

The device was conflict checked on the ILoI by Magnus von Lübeck. No conflicts were found.


2: Gunnarr Langskeggr - New Name & New Device

Per saltire gules and sable, a spear argent between a pair of drinking horns respectant Or

Submitter desires a masculine name.
No major changes.
Meaning most important.

Both name elements found in Geirr Bassi

Gunnarr, Given name, page 10

Langskeggr, constructed descriptive byname meaning long-beard

Lang- Long, p.25; other uses: langbrok, long-pants; langhals, long-neck

Skegg- Beard, p.27; other uses: lafskegg, wag-bearg; gullskeggr, gold-beard

Submitter will accept any required changes to spelling of surname in order to correctly join the two elements (ie. Langskegg)

This device was conflict checked on the ILoI by Magnus von Lübeck.


3: Johanna Morganstern - New Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2013, via the Outlands.
