Argent, a gragon print per pale azure and sable within a bordure azure

The previous submission, Argent, a dragon's paw print per pale azure and sable within a bordure azure, was returned on the September 2017 LoR (http://rampart.outlandsheralds.org/2017-08-lop/1709-lor.html) with the following: {The device is returned for a rework. The dragon's paw print lacks identifiability and precendent. There are dragons with different amount of toes and different styles of claws so there's a lack of consistency to properly identify a "dragon's paw print". Even though, paw prints are considered as SFPP, documentation would be needed to register a dragon's paw print as it is not a previously registered charge. Commentors repeatedly mentioned that the paw print could also be any land-based bird. Emblazon: http://oscar.sca.org/emblazons/Outlands/2017-09/ylva-d-c.jpg}

The name consists of two constructed name elements but there is a lack of documentation to support the elements used for the construction. Please see the commentary on OSCAR for more information. Unfortunately, the submitter's name desires are extremely vague - 'Scandinavian' isn't helpful - so the authenticity request would have been difficult to honor at the Laurel level. The device is returned for lack of name to go with it. It should be noted that 'swords proper' have an Or hilt whereas the ones submitted are 'hilted argent' with Or elements. It is suggested that the entire hilt be made one color. Emblazon: https://oscar.sca.org/images/emblazons/Outlands/2018-09/falnor-c.jpg}
