Tir Righ Submission

Originally on http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2018/11/18-11lar.html

This was returned due to:

This badge is also returned for use of a voided charge that is not the primary charge. While you can generally blazon your way out of a style problem, you cannot have a mullet azure on an azure field, even if it is fimbriated; this is the definition of voiding.

There was also an administrative reason for association which has been removed for registration purposes.

We, (redacted) and (redacted), known in the SCA as Sethric Einarsson and Kolbera Varsdottir, Prince and Princess of Tir Righ, allow the submission of the following items:

-(Fieldless) On a mullet of eight points azure fimbriated a hand argent

-Azure, in pale a mullet of eight points voided issuant from a torch argent

-Azure, in pale a mullet of eight points and a lyre conjoined by a pair of chains argent

-Azure, a cornucopia effluent contourny maintaining suspended by the tip a mullet of eight points argent

When a maintained charge is too small, it is not ignored for conflict but now incurs return. http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2015/08/15-08cl.html#6, "From Wreath: Eliminating the unsustainable 'maintained/sustained' definitions", 4th paragraph:

A held or conjoined charge which is not identifiable will render the design unregisterable. A charge may be rendered unidentifiable through the usual methods, including reduction in size, poor contrast, etc.

Tir Righ Submission

This item was on http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2018/11/18-11lar.html

and returned for:

This device is returned for violation of SENA A3D2a, which prohibits more than two types of charge in the same charge group. The chains which conjoin the mullet and lyre are large enough that, when combined with their central placement in the design, appear to be co-primary with both of the other charges. With three different types of charge in the same primary charge group, this meets SENA's description of "slot machine" heraldry, and must be returned.

In addition, there is an issue with the way in which the chains attach to the other charges. Rather than conjoining to the charges in chief and in base, as expected, each charge enfiles a link in both chains in a way that would need to be explicitly documented. Otherwise, on resubmission, the chains should either be omitted or otherwise thin enough to avoid the appearance of being co-primary with the other charges. We advise making the mullet and lyre larger and closer together as well.

We, (redacted) and (redacted), known in the SCA as Sethric Einarsson and Kolbera Varsdottir, Prince and Princess of Tir Righ, allow the submission of the following items:

-(Fieldless) On a mullet of eight points azure fimbriated a hand argent

-Azure, in pale a mullet of eight points voided issuant from a torch argent

-Azure, in pale a mullet of eight points and a lyre conjoined by a pair of chains argent

-Azure, a cornucopia effluent contourny maintaining suspended by the tip a mullet of eight points argent

and returned for:

This device is returned for lack of documentation of the unlit torch. In the January 2008 registration of the badge of Cormac Mor, (Fieldless) Two torches in saltire Or, it was ruled that "There is a CD between a torch (which is always depicted as enflamed) and a straight trumpet." This required enflaming of torches mirrors the description in the PicDic, which states that "The torch is always 'enflamed', or lit, even when not explicitly blazoned so." This item can therefore not be described as a torch, and absent documentation for what it might be, must be returned.

We, (redacted) and (redacted), known in the SCA as Sethric Einarsson and Kolbera Varsdottir, Prince and Princess of Tir Righ, allow the submission of the following items:

-(Fieldless) On a mullet of eight points azure fimbriated a hand argent

-Azure, in pale a mullet of eight points voided issuant from a torch argent

-Azure, in pale a mullet of eight points and a lyre conjoined by a pair of chains argent
