Outlands LoP dated 2016-06-08

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 8th day of June, A.S. LI (2016 CE), does Lord Gauvain Eisenbein send greetings on behalf of Master Angus Reid MacFarlane, White Stag Principal Herald.

Here follows the Kingdom of the Outlands' Letter of Presentation for June, 2016.

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 July 19th, 2016, for the decision meeting on July 20th, 2016. As a reminder, the College of Arms requests commentary on all items, including appeals.

Submissions this month were much higher quality, with special kudos to Rampart for sending me fully complete electronic versions that were a joy to deal with. As a reminder, submissions for which I do not receive a text copy of the documentation notes, or resubmissions lacking information on the previous return, will be pended until I receive that information.

I am still on a professional sabbatical in Artemisia. For the next two months, my Lady wife will be collecting submissions and mailing them to me for processing. This means that things not received by the 1st of the month will likely go on the next month's letter.

1: Arn Geirsson -New Name & New Device

Per fess embattled purpure and Or, an eagle's head erased and two spears in saltire counterchanged

Submitter desires a masculine name.

[Arn] - Fellows-Jensen, Gillian, Scandinavian Personal Names in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire p. 342 s.n. Arn (Sourced from - http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/ONMensNames.shtml)

[Geirsson] - [Geirr Bassi] p.10 s.n. Geirr

Consulting Herald: Khalidah bint Yahya'a (Unser Hafen)


2: Balthazar Knopf -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2014, via the Outlands.

Per fess rayonne gules and azure, two armoring hammers in saltire and a steel breastplate argent

The previous submission, Per fess rayonny azure and gules, two ball-peen hammers in saltire and a cuirass argent, was returned on the December 2014 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2014/12/14-12lar.html#Outlands_returns16) with the following: {This device submission is returned for redraw: the per fess line has "pinking-shear" rayonny. In other words, the rayonny is too small to be easily identifiable, especially with a low-contrast line of division. Each part of the rayonny division needs to be both longer and wider with wavier rays.}.

Consulting herald: Avram (Plattefordham)


3: Gwenllian MacDonald -New Name & New Device

Argent fretty purpure, an oak tree fructed and eradicated Or

Submitter desires a feminine name.

[Gwenllian] - The Dyffryn Clwyd Court Roll Database 1294-1422 pg. 142 (PDF pg. 145), dates it to 1364-1376, 115 instances (http://www.esds.ac.uk/doc/3679/mrdoc/pdf/3679userguide.pdf)

4: Gwenllian MacDonald and Arn Geirsson -New Badge

OSCAR is unable to find the name (Arn Geirsson) , either registered or submitted.

Per pale Or and purpure, a Catherine's wheel counterchanged

Consulting Herald: Khalidah bint Yahya'a (Unser Hafen)


5: Hawk Rill Hunnybun -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2014, via the Outlands.

Per bend sinister argent and sable, a hawk displayed sable and a sword bendwise sinister, on a chief azure, a sword reversed argent

The previous submission, Per bend sinister argent and sable, a hawk rising argent chased brown and a rapier bendwise sinister argent, on a chief azure, a sword reversed argent, was returned on the January 2014 LoAR (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2014/01/14-01lar.html#Outlands_returns17) with the following: {This device is returned for redraw for multiple issues. We have not registered chased since April 1982. We cannot reblazon this hawk as brown proper, as while a few argent markings would be fine, it is far more argent than brown. If this hawk is considered merely argent, it has no contrast with the portion of the field on which it lies. The posture of the bird is also unblazonable, and drawn with perspective, somewhere between displayed and rising, neither quite facing the viewer nor in profile.

This device is also returned for violating the so-called "sword and dagger" rule, stated in SENA A3D1 as "two charges or depictions of charges that are artistic variants of one another or that otherwise are considered to have less than a distinct change (DC) between them are not allowed in a single armorial design...This is true even if one charge is on the field and the other charge is on another charge." We do not consider there to be a DC between a sword and a rapier.}.

Consulting herald: None given (Caerthe)


Thus ends the June Letter of Presentation. There are no pended submissions this month (Huzzah!)

See y'all at 50th year!

In Service,

Gauvain Eisenbein

Outlands Castle Herald
