4: Bjǫrn Bassason - Resub Appeal of Laurel Return of Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Lochac LoI of November 30, 2016 as submitted.

Paly of six, bendy azure and argent and bendy sinister argent and azure.

Consulting Herald Bjǫrn Bassason (Mordenvale)

Reasoning for this is that, whilst although the previous blazon could yield an emblazon that would not be sufficiently visually distinct, the alternating nature of the colours present and the width of the pales on an escutcheon or other shield render the emblazon visually distinct from Bavaria. Noting that the shapes produced in the Bavarian arms are dimensionally uniform and slant all in the same direction, whereas the shapes produced in my arms are twice as wide as they are tall and alternate between slanting one way and another.

With an unspecified paly, enough pales could be included in an emblazon to make the shapes produced by the bendy treatment dimensionally uniform (although still alternating between a Z slant and an S slant). Specifying a paly of 6 produces an emblazon with pales wide enough that the shapes produced by the bendy treatment are significantly distinct both in the lack of dimensional uniformity and alternating slant.

12: Katherine Kerr of the Hermitage - Resub Device Change

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2006, via Lochac.

Per chevron embattled gules and azure, two curs' heads couped argent each gorged of a pearled coronet sable attached thereto two chain links Or and a tower argent.

Old Item: Per chevron embattled gules and azure, two curs' heads couped argent collared sable and a tower argent., to be released.

Consulting herald Fiora Vespucci (Fiora Vespucci)

Katherine was granted a court barony on 3 February AS XLIV and is entitled

to bear a baronial coronet.

This device is a re-submission of "Per chevron embattled gules and azure, two curs' heads couped argent each gorged of a pearled coronet attached thereto two chain links Or and a tower argent."

This device must be returned for violation of SENA A3B4, which requires that charges have good contrast with the background upon which they are placed. In the return of Rolant Richolf von dem Reyne's device in the LoAR of July 2006, it was ruled:

While collaring a beast's head is normally worth a CD, in this case the collar cannot be considered a tertiary charge as it is the same tincture class (metal) as the underlying charge. Thus the device must again be returned for conflict. If the collar is considered a tertiary charge, then this would have to be returned for violating RfS VIII.2.b - Contrast Requirements. Making the collar a color rather than a metal will allow it to count as a tertiary charge and clear the conflict with [Name's] device. We note that a purpure collar should not be used on a purpure field.

In the previous return, the cur's heads were issuant from coronets, which made them co-primary, thus requiring that the coronets have good contrast with the field. However, the coronets in this submission have neck above and below, functioning as collars much like those in the submitter's existing registered armory. They are thus considered equivalent to tertiary charges, and must have good contrast with the heads. Unfortunately, not only is there poor contrast between the gold bands and silver heads, there is zero contrast for the pearls. We will note that changing the tincture of the coronets, either to sable as in the submitter's existing registration, or any color other than gules, will solve this issue.

The submitter is a court baroness and entitled to a coronet.

OSCAR finds the name on the Lochac LoI of January 24, 2018 as submitted.

Sable, three crosses of St Julian argent

Consulting Herald Fiora Astrolabe (Ildhafn)

Device notes from Kingdom

Ollivier Le Floch: Consider Jane Kynesman of Northamptonshire "Per pale azure and gules, three saltorels argent."

A cross crosslet gets a DC from a cross couped, so I would expect that the same courtesy would be extended to saltires. If so, with the change in the field that's two DCs. No other potential conflicts found.
