Atenveldt LoP dated 2019-05-01


1 May 2019, A.S. LIV


Unto Their Royal Majesties Morgan and Elizabeth; Baron Seamus MacDade, Aten Principal Herald; Heralds in the Atenveldt College of Heralds; and to All Whom These Presents Come,

Greetings of the New Year from Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald and Parhelium Herald for the Kingdom of Atenveldt!

Please have commentary to me on the proposed submissions for the May Letter of Intent by 20 May 2019. Thank you!

1: Catalina Margherita fil Abraham -New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Atenveldt LoI of February 15, 2019 as submitted.

Argent, seven mullets in annulo purpure.

2: Donngal de Buchanan -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in December of 2003, via Atenveldt.

Vert, a hand within an orle of chain surmounted in base by a mullet Or.

The client was knighted 5 November 2005.

The default hand is a dexter (right) one, apaumy and couped (makes for a short blazon, like the one used here!). The placement of the mullet on the orle of chain follows the example of several badges registered to Rhodri Longshanks (an example: Argent, on a torteau an ermine spot Or, a double tressure surmounted by six rustres azure.).

3: Kathryn De Feuer -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2017, via Atenveldt.

Vert, in pale a nautilus argent and a goblet argent charged with a rose vert.

The previous submission, Vert, in pale a rose within a stag's antler conjoined to itself in annulo and a goblet argent., was returned by Laurel June 2018 for blurring the distinction between co-primary charges and primary/secondary charges. "The attire crosses the fess line, pushing the goblet to base, but they have similar visual weight. The rose, in contrast, is much, much smaller, visually the size of a tertiary charge. However, given its arrangement, it is considered to be co-primary. This device is also returned for having three different charges in the same charge group. If drawn so that all three charges have more or less equal weight and are co-primary, this device would have three different charges in the primary charge group, which is grounds for return."

This is a slight redesign. The goblet juuuust crosses the fess line, and I hope that the shell can still be considered a co-primary with the goblet; the rose now appears on the goblet, making it an acceptable tertiary charge. The Pic Dic refer to the upper charge as a "snail shell" (and it matches it exactly!). I tend to agree with this, mostly because I envision a nautilus, particularly one that isn't a nautilus shell one with the molluscy, many-tentacled resident peeking its head out.

4: Kolli Makanarson -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in June of 2018, via Atenveldt.

Sable, a wasp statant within a chaplet of thorns Or.

The chaplet of thorns is found in the arms of Thornton, c.1525 ( While most insects are found tergiant (as though looking down on a pin-board), the profile appearance doesn't seem to be a posture that is too unlikely; it shows the elongated abdomen and the slender "wasp-waist" of the insect. Wasps are conflict-checked against Bees.

Many thanks in advance for your time and consideration of these submissions.
