Outlands LoP dated 2016-07-18

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 18th day of July, 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 July, 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 August 16th, 2016, for the decision meeting on August 17th, 2016. As a reminder, the College of Arms requests commentary on all items, including appeals.

There were several problematic submissions this month, though they were short and I was feeling generous, so nothing was pended. As a reminder, submissions for which I do not receive a text copy of the documentation notes, or re-submissions lacking information on the previous return, will be pended until I receive that information.

I will be returning from my mundane sabbatical in August. From this point forward, all submissions should go to the posted Castle Herald address.
