East ILoI dated 2019-09-15

Greetings unto the heralds of the East Kingdom and the Known World! We thank you for your commentary, and recommend the following items for your attention.

This letter includes submissions from Pennsic. Please note that the scanning may not show purples and browns well, but the color-corrected version should make it clear which tincture is intended.

I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to all of the volunteer consulting heralds, heraldic artists, and the industrious coloring squad, without whom Pennsic submissions would not be possible. This year we had volunteers as young as 10 years old, as well as someone celebrating their golden jubilee (50 years) of Pennsic involvement.

It is not our intention to penalize any submitter for quality of artwork or coloring unless the emblazon has issues with recognizability or violates rule/precedent.

If Muirenn Blue Tyger consulted on any submissions on this letter, decisions will be made by Lilie Pantheon and Sláine Diademe.

Golden is the alternate word for |Or| as a heraldic color. It is found in this spelling in the Middle English Dictionary (http://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=id&id=MED19037&egs=all&egdisplay=open) for example: (a1398) * Trev. Barth.(Add 27944) 198b/a: Þe colour þerof is demed golden by day and fyry by night.

A Punner is a heraldic charge. From the Pic Dic 3rd Ed. http://mistholme.com/?s=punner A punner is a type of pile-driver, used to tamp and harden the dirt (e.g., around a fence post); the term is the English translation of Rammbock, the German name for the charge. It's a period charge, found in the arms of von Auffhaim or von Aufheim, c.1450 [Scheibler 297], and of von Lintzer, mid-16th C. [NW 32]. The punner is palewise by default.
