Æthelmearc ILoI dated 2019-04-22

Greetings unto Sofie Silver Buccle and the College of Heralds of the Kingdom of Æthelmearc. This is Æ216, internal letter of intent. It is the intent of the Garnet office to submit the following elements to the Laurel Sovereign of Arms for registration.

This is my last internal letter as Garnet Herald. Beginning May 11, Saiman Tokushou, the current Cornelian Herald, will be stepping up to the Garnet office. I will cover Cornelian duties until such time as a new Cornelian is in place. Thank you for the opportunity to serve, and I look forward to continuing as a commenting herald in the future.

1: Æthelmearc, Kingdom of -New Order Name

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as ?thelmearc, Kingdom of in January of 1998, via Æthelmearc.

Order of the Howling Wolf

Consulting Herald: Madoc Arundel

This is for a non-armigerous order to recognize individuals who contribute in unique or unusual ways to the merriment of the populace and the festivity of events.

Following the pattern of adjective + heraldic charge.

From Mistholme:

The wolf is a predatory canine beast, whose medieval reputation was one of rapacity and strength. It was a common charge in medieval armory, called a "leu" or "loup" in early blazons, and found as early as c.1275 in the canting arms of Lou [ANA2 109]. The wolf does not seem to have a default posture; the illustration shows a wolf rampant.

A "wolf ululant" has its head raised, howling or baying. The term is unique to Society heraldry, and as a purely artistic detail worth no difference, is no longer used in blazon.


howling[hou-ling] (adjective)

1. producing or uttering a howling noise: a howling mob.

2. desolate, dismal, or dreary: a howling wilderness.

3. Informal . very great; tremendous: a howling success.

The only possible conflict noted was Howling Wolf's Keep, Shire of, which was released by Atlantia in March of 1992.

I've learned that fear limits you and your vision. It serves as blinders to what may be just a few steps down the road for you. The journey is valuable, but believing in your talents, your abilities, and your self-worth can empower you to walk down an even brighter path. Transforming fear into freedom - how great is that? --Soledad O'Brien
