East ILoI dated 2016-09-03

Greetings unto the heralds of the East Kingdom and the Known World!

This letter includes most of the submissions received between 6/15/2016 and 07/31/2016 as well as the first batch of the Pennsic items.

Commentary on this letter will close on September 30, 2016.

1: Aiden Underhill -Resub Device

OSCAR finds the name on the East LoI of August 31, 2015 as submitted.

Or semy of frets conjoined vert, on a chief vert three lozenges Or

The original device, Vert semy of frets conjoined Or, was returned on the January 2015 LoD for conflict with the device of Medwe Janos (August 1998, West): Vert fretty Or, a quatrefoil argent. "Semy of frets conjoined" was seen as being indistinguishable from "fretty", giving a single DC for removing the tertiary quatrefoil.

The addition of the charged chief resolves the conflict.

Commenters are asked for their opinion on whether "semy of frets conjoined" is a registerable motif.
