An Tir KLOI from Central/Summits dated 2019-02-14

Unto the An Tir College of Heralds, greetings!

I hope to have the publication of letters back onto a more timely track in March. Thank you for your patience as I have dealt with illness after illness after other setback.

The following is presented for commentary in February 2019:

1: Arnora Grimsdottir -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in July of 2017, via An Tir.

Fieldless, a masculyn counterchanged gules and argent

The submitter's branch is Wealdsmere.


2: Brand aux deus Leons -New Device

OSCAR thinks the name is registered as Brand aux Deus Leons in July of 2016, via An Tir.

Sable, a lion-headed torque or and on a chief embattled or between two hearts gules voided argent a heart gules

The submitter's branch is Madrone.


3: Fergus William Biggs -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in September of 2015, via An Tir.

(fieldless) Two arrows in saltire and overall a sword inverted argent.

The submitter's branch is Wastekeep.

The submitter's previous submission of the same blazon/emblazon was returned in August 2018 by Laurel:

Fergus William Biggs. Badge. (Fieldless) Two arrows in saltire surmounted by a sword inverted argent.
This device is returned for conflict with the device of Dafyd ap Tomas, Quarterly gules and vert, a sheaf of arrows argent. There's one DC for fielded vs fieldless armory. The arrangements of charges are identical: a sheaf of arrows is equivalent to two arrows in saltire and overall an arrow. The submitted design has therefore changed the type of only one of a group of three charges, which is not enough for the second DC.

The submitter has included a letter of Permission to Conflict from Dafyd as follows:

Know all men by these presents.

Greeting:

I, [redacted], known in the SCA as Dafyd ap Tomas, give [redacted], known in the SCA as Fergus William Biggs, permission for his armory "(Fieldless) Two arrows in saltire and overall a sword inverted argent" to look similar to, but not identical to, my armory, "Quarterly gules and vert, a sheaf of arrows argent." I understand that this permission cannot be withdrawn once Fergus William Bigg's armory is registered.

Signed by my hand this 14th day of December, 2018.

The Honorable Lord Dafyd ap Tomas)
