Outlands LoI dated 2013-12-20

From the Office of Rampart Herald

Sayyidah Khalidah bint Yahya'a (Nicole Riviezzo)

rampart@outlandsheralds.org

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 December 2013 Letter of Intent for the Kingdom of the Outlands.

I would like to thank Aspen, Schwarzdrachen, Conrad von Zollern, Andrew von Otelingen, Katelin de Irlande, and all of the heralds who were kind enough to contribute comments on OSCAR.

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

This item was on the 03-2014 LoAR

1: Gerald Beckett - New Device

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

Per chevron sable and vert, an owl contourny and in canton a mullet argent

Submitter's previous device, Per chevron sable and vert, a european eagle owl displayed affronty argent, on the March 2013 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2013-02-lop/1303-lor.html) with the following:

{This device must be returned both for style and conflict issues. Style: Per precedent, this line of division is too low to be "Per cheveron" and too high to be a "Point Pointed". 50% of the chevron should be above the per fess line, 50% below. Conflicts: Because this is displayed, it must be checked against all Eagles. Therefore there are multiple conflicts. Some are: Francesca of Bright Angel (reg. 01/1973), "Azure, a dove displayed, head elevated argent"; Este, House of (reg. 12/1994 via Laurel), "Azure, an eagle displayed argent crowned Or."; Nemanjici, Kings of Serbia (reg. 05/2002 via the West), "Gules, a double-headed eagle crowned argent."; Poland (reg. 12/1994 via Laurel), "Gules, an eagle displayed argent crowned Or."; John of Ean Airgead, called the Mad Celt (reg. 10/1979 via Meridies), "Vert, a chimney swift migrant palewise argent. [Chaetura pelagica]," and (reg. 09/1980 via Meridies), "Vert, a chimney swift migrant palewise holding in its beak a holly leaf fesswise argent."}

{Returned for obtrusively modern style. Skulls are rare in period armory, and almost always affronty. In this case, the skulls as depicted appear to be wearing a bandanna and earring (reminiscent of modern commercial pirate flags), which is not acceptable period style.}
