Outlands Kingdom ILoI dated 2014-07-15

Outlands College of Heralds

July 15, 2014 From the Office of the Castle Herald

Gauvain Eisenbein

castle@outlandsheralds.org

Unto the Outlands College of Heralds, our respected friends and colleagues who give freely of their time to provide commentary, and all others who come by these letters, on this 15th day of July, A.S. XLIX (2014 CE), does Lord Gauvain Eisenbein send greetings on behalf of Baron Randal Carrick, White Stag Principal Herald.

Here follows the Kingdom of the Outlands' Letter of Presentation for July 2014.

The Outlands is moving towards fully electronic submissions with all due haste. An exact date has not been set yet, but it is in the foreseeable future that Castle will no longer accept printed forms. To prepare for that date, I am requesting that submitting heralds please email me an editable text copy of all name summaries. We will soon not accept submissions without this, so this is a time to practice sending me things electronically.

Anyone may comment upon the items found herein, and e-mail commentary to the herald's commentary list is encouraged. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome. Please have comments on items contained herein to Rampart Herald by August 19th, 2014, for the decision meeting scheduled for August 20th, 2014. As a reminder, the College of Arms requests commentary on all items, including appeals.

It was common in the Venetian dialect to use <Z-> at the beginning of names that were spelled <Gi-> elsewhere in Italy, so these names correspond to <Gianeta>, <Gianina>, and <Gioana>."

Commentors note that the simurgh looks like a mess of tangled ribbon - not a simurgh - so it needs to have a larger body and less dominante tail.}
