The following submissions were returned for further work:

Gabriel Gabrielinpoika - New Device Sable, a pike pole head between two axes in pile, blades outward Or. (submitted again in this letter)


1: Aleydis van Vilvoorden -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2008, via Drachenwald.

(Fieldless) A brown stag's horn of seven tines proper, each tine with a cinquefoil argent.


2: Aleydis van Vilvoorden -New Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2008, via Drachenwald.

(Fieldless) A stag's horn with seven tines, each with a cinquefoil argent.


3: Catalina de Zaragoza -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in March of 2014, via Drachenwald.

Per bend sinister Or and gules, two triskelions of snakes counterchanged.

The submission, with identical blazon, was in Drachenwald LoI 2016-03-31 (https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=63361) and was returned in LoAR 06-2016 (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2016/06/16-06lar.html#153):

Catalina de Zaragoza. Device. Per bend sinister Or and gules, two triskelions of snakes counterchanged.

This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states "Elements must be drawn to be identifiable." Because the heads are small, commenters had trouble recognizing that these were triskelions of serpents.

The redrawn emblazonment seeks to correct the identifiability.


4: Constanza of Thamesreach -Resub Badge

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2009, via Drachenwald.

(Fieldless) A shakefork erminois.

The submission was previously returned in LoAR 11-2014 (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2014/11/14-11lar.html#162):

Constanza of Thamesreach. Badge. (Fieldless) A fleece erminois.

This badge is returned for presuming upon the important non-SCA badge of the Order of the Golden Fleece; (Fieldless) A fleece Or.

SENA A5A states "...In some cases, two armorial designs, despite having sufficient technical differences, may have overwhelming visual similarity, causing undue confusion and thus these two designs will be considered to be in conflict..."

This is exactly the situation that we encounter here, despite being technically clear of the badge of the Golden Fleece, with a DC for fieldlessness and another DC for the difference between Or and erminois, most commenters parsed the small ermine spots as internal detailing of the wool.

This submission is a complete redesign.


5: Constanza of Thamesreach -New Blanket Permission to Conflict

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in October of 2009, via Drachenwald.

(Fieldless) A shakefork erminois.

The original is in the package.

I, [legal name redacted], known in the SCA as Constanza of Thamesreach, waive the full protection of my registered armory "Fieldless, a shakefork erminois". I grant permission to any future submitter to register armory that is not identical to my registered armory. I understand that this permission can be withdrawn by written notice to the Laurel Sovereign of Arms, but that conflicting items registered while it is in force will remain registered.

Signed 3 May 2017

7: Dubhghall mac Ébhearáird -New Badge

8: Estrid of Nordmark -New Name & New Device

Purpure, on a sun Or a heart gules.

9: Gabriel Gabrielinpoika -New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Drachenwald LoI of April 30, 2017 as submitted.

Sable, a boat-hook head between two axes in pile, blades outward Or.

The device was previously returned in kingdom (2017-04-10), then blazoned Sable, a pike pole head between two axes in pile, blades outward Or, due to "pike pole head" not being a recognizable charge (https://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingsingleitem.php?kingdom=14&id=74525). The resubmission is redrawn, names the charge differently and has added documentation.

This is the defining instance of the charge boat-hook head. A boat-hook is a tool used by sailors to either catch objects (with the hook) or push them away (with the point). The German term for it is "Bootshaken", translating to "boat-hook".

The charge (the tool's head only, just like in this submission) is found in Siebmacher's Wappenbuch, Plate 55, in the arms of von Bischofswerdt and die Oppel (see #1).

The charge is called <Bootshaken> on a German web page that lists pictures of sailing and fishing related imagery on monuments (http://www.suehnekreuz.de/ikono/kger12.html) (see #2).

10: Gwen Corderay -New Device

OSCAR finds the name on the Drachenwald LoI of October 31, 2016 as submitted.

Sable, a stag's skull argent.

The submission was previsouly returned in kingdom (2016-10-07), with identical blazon, due to the emblazonment being excessively naturalistic (https://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingsingleitem.php?kingdom=14&id=69178). The redrawn version seeks to correct the problem.


11: Irene nyn Doole -New Name & New Device

Azure, in pale a ram's head cabossed and a drakkar Or.

No major changes.

The name was previously returned in kingdom (2014-12-14), then submitted as Joel ben Stuart, due to <ben> and <Stuart> not being compatible. (https://oscar.sca.org/kingdom/kingsingleitem.php?kingdom=14&id=47834). This has been addressed by replacing <ben>, Hebrew "son of", with the given name <Ben>.
