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 February 2016 Letter of Intent for the Kingdom of the Outlands.

I would like to thank Green Anchor & The NE Calontir Commenting Group, Orgress, Liber, Conrad von Zollern, and all of the heralds who were kind enough to contribute comments on OSCAR.

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

18: Konrad von Alpirsbach - New Name & New Device

Lozengy argent and vert, a bull passant sable

Submitter desires a masculine name.
Language (German) most important.
Culture (German) most important.

[Konrad] - German Names, Hans Bahlow Second Edition under Konrad is the latin documentary form of the old German Royal Name Kunrad = 'bold in his advice'

[Alpirsbach] - Alpirsbach is located in the upper Kinzig Valley approximately 20 km south of Freudenstadt. It was consecrated on 16th January 1095 by the Bishop of Constance Gebbard III. memim.com/alpirsbach-abbey.html

Additional Notation provided by Green Anchor:

Brechenmacher's entry for "Alpirsbach(er)" has only one dated citation: "Pfaff Heinrich Elperspach" from 1423, but there is a note that translates approximately to "(also Älperspach and Älberspach at Neckartailfingen (Nürtingen)".

Additional Documentation provided by Liber:

I find Albersbach on Wirtenberg Ducatus by Georgio Gardnero, dated 1579 (lower left corner): http://biblio.unibe.ch/web-apps/maps/zoomify.php?pic=Ryh_4803_3.jpg&col=ryh

It appears as Alberspach on this 16th map by Gerhard Mercator: http://mapy.mzk.cz/mzk03/001/060/720/2619268396/

Glancing through two other 16th C maps, I see "Albersbach" as the most common spelling used.

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2007, via An Tir.

Erminois, a bear rampant purpure

20: Outlands, Kingdom of the - New Order Name & New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 1986, via the Outlands.

Order of Vanguard of the Outlands

Vert, a sword inverted argent surmounted by a beehive within a bordure embattled Or

Meaning (the first to arrive for battle) most important.

The OED, s.n. vanguard, gives the meaning as "Mil. The foremost division of an army; the forefront or van." The earliest examples with this meaning date to 1487 (1380). "of the Outlands" simple denotes where the vanguard is from. The meaning that is important is the first to arrive for battle.

Originally submitted as <Vanguard of the Outlands> but the submitting herald approved the change to <Order of Vanguard of the Outlands> in internal commentary after a long exchange with Ogress.

Additional Documentation provided by Ogress:

Vangard is a late-period English surname which, by precedent, can be used as a given name [Alton of Grimfells, 4/2010 LoAR, A-East]. Vangard is found in the Family Search Historical Records:

Davyd Vangard; Male; Marriage; 20 Nov 1592; St Botolph Aldgate, London, England; Batch: M00080-3 (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NJQ7-9XW)

There is a documented pattern of naming Orders after the given names of individuals. [Order of Taillefer, 5/2011 LoAR, A-Lochac]

Therefore, since Vangard can be a given name, Order of Vangard of the Outlands should be a registerable Order name.

23: Tariq ibn Yusuf ibn 'Askari al-Ghassani - Resub Household Name & New Badge

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Tariq ibn Yusuf ibn 'Askari al-Ghassani in January of 2015, via the Outlands.

Bayt al-`Askarī

Or, three lozenges and on a chief triangular azure a scimitar fesswise point to sinister Or

Language (Arabic, 12th C.) most important.
Culture (Arabic, 12th C.) most important.
Meaning (Arabic, 12th C.) most important.

The name for this household is constructed based on samples of the Arabic futuwwa houses of the late 12th and early 13th Centuries and documented primarily from two articles by Dr. Mohsen Zakeri, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen:

1. "The futuwwa-"Houses" at the Time of Caliph al-Nasir." (1998) Excerpt from the Proceedings of the 19th Congress of the Union Européenne des Arabisants et Islamisants, retrieved from: https://www.academia.edu/6577675/The_futuwwa-_Houses_at_the_Time_of_Caliph_al-N%C3%A4sir

2. "Muslim "Chivalry" at the Time of the Crusaders: The Case of Usama B. Munqidh." (1996). Excerpt from an international colloquium on The Consequences of the Crusades for the Oriental Religious Communities. Retrieved from:

https://www.academia.edu/6577676/Muslim_CHIVALRY_at_the_time_of_the_Crusaders._The_case_of_Usama_b._ Munqidh (Scan Below)

The futuwwa orders were structured as "urban associations" with bayt being used as the singular form translated as "house" (pl. "buyūt") (Zakeri, 1996). The names of the buyūt could be eponyms, as in thecase of the bayt al-Rahhās, or reflect other origins, such as the religious origin of the Mawlidīya (Zakeri, 1998).

The nisba al-`Askarī is documented in the attached excerpt from The

Encyclopedia of Islam s.n. Mansūr al-Namarī dated to 1005. (http://oscar.sca.org/showimage.php?I=1489/2016-02-02/00-58-07_tariq1.jpg), (http://oscar.sca.org/showimage.php?I=1489/2016-02-02/00-58-09_tariq2.jpg),

(https://oscar.sca.org/showimage.php?I=1489/2016-02-02/00-58-10_tariq3.jpg), (https://oscar.sca.org/showimage.php?I=1489/2016-02-02/00-58-12_tariq4.jpg)

Thus, the construction of the household name follows the pattern of futuwwa houses with house + eponym/nisba: bayt al-`Askarī.

The previous submission, Askar al-Qal'a, was returned on the October 2015 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2015/10/15-10lar.html#Outlands_returns22) with the following: { This household name was intended to mean "Army of the Fort". Although the Letter of Intent documented each name phrase to period, it did not show that units called askar have names and, if so, what forms these names take. Without this evidence, a household name based on askar cannot be registered.}
