Middle LoI dated 2018-04-30
Greetings I send, Estelle Rouge Scarpe, unto Juliana Laurel, Alys Pelican, and Cormac Wreath, and the entire College of Herald. It is our desire that these submissions be considered for registration with the SCA College of Arms.
1: Elofina La Peyra - Resub Device
OSCAR is unable to find the name, either registered or submitted.
Azure, on a sun Or a dragon displayed sable, and a bordure compony sable and argent.
Returned January 2018 (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2018/01/18-01lar.html#290)
"This device must be returned for redraw. Depictions of winged quadrupeds where the forelimbs overlie the wings has been grounds for return due to lack of recognizability, most recently in the return of Umm Butrus A'isha al-Anida's device on the March 2017 LoAR.
"This device is also returned for blurring the distinction between rampant and displayed postures. In the return of Irene MacKenny's device on the July 2017 LoAR, it was ruled that "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." As this depiction of a dragon "displayed" has the torso turned to dexter, it is returned under this precedent.
"There is a step from period practice for use of dragons displayed."
2: Errol O hEaghra - New Name & New Device
Purpure, on a pale argent between two fleur-de-lys Or a stallion tampant sable.
No major changes.
Errol 1574 in R&W as a surname - surnames as given names are acceptable in late English. The submitter has accepted this change from the original submitted name (Eral) after in-Kingdom commentary.
O hEaghra: [Woulfe] Woulfe, Patrick. Sloinnte Gaedheal is Gall: Irish Names and Surnames. pp. 560-561.
The submitter approved this digital version of their device for submission purposes.
Yours in Service to College and Kingdom,
Estelle Rouge Scarpe
