Greetings to Emma Laurel, Elisabetta Pelican, and Iago Wreath from Dietrich Red Escutcheon and Acting Green Mantle:

We humbly submit for consideration and registration by the College the following names and armoury.

1: Arkil Crowe - Resub Device (KLoI)

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in April of 2023, via Ealdormere.

Per pale raguly argent and gules, a crow striking maintaining in its beak a chain sable.

Originally submitted as Argent, a cross raguly gules, overall a crow rising wings addorsed maintaining in its beak a chain sable, this was returned on the April 2023 LoAR.

Arkil Crowe. Device. Argent, a cross raguly gules, overall a crow rising wings addorsed maintaining in its beak a chain sable.

This device is returned for having two overall charge groups, which is disallowed under SENA Appendix I4: "There can be only one overall charge group in any design." On resubmission, please draw the cross thicker.

This is a design that should address the issue for the previous return.
