1: Bastian Farr Walker -New Name & New Device

Azure, on a cross between in bend a compass rose and a lantern argent a cross sable

Submitter desires a masculine name.

2: Böjei Temür -Resub Appeal of Laurel Return of Device

OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in January of 2003, via the Middle.

Azure, two birds rising to sinister in annulo Or

Returned January 2018 (http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2018/01/18-01lar.html#258):

This device is returned for violation of SENA A3D2c, which requires that charges be in a unified posture and orientation. In the December 2017 return of Branán Mac Branáin's device, it was ruled:

In annulo is a term used to describe charges arranged in such a ways that they form an annulet, or circle. It is possible for a number (usually 6 or more) of any type of charge to be in annulo by following the path of the annulet, and certain long, skinny charges like serpents or stag's attires can be in annulo with only one charge. However, when there are five or fewer charges in the charge group, the ability of charges to represent an annular formation becomes more difficult and dependent upon the shape and orientation of the charges. Three wolves rampant, heads to center, cannot be in annulo, because their arrangement and orientation do not suggest an annulet. However, three wolves courant can be in annulo, provided their bodies curve and conform to the shape of an annulet.

While these birds are in a more curved shape than the submission from which this ruling comes, the principle remains the same. The birds are not oriented in such a way that the curves of their respective forms even hint at an annulet.

This device is also returned for violation of SENA A2C1, which requires that "Elements must be drawn in their period forms and in a period armorial style," and specifically prohibits charges being depicted in trian aspect. The foreshortened wing on both birds gives the impression of being drawn in perspective.

This form was marked incorrectly during consult, and the submitter informed me that it was supposed to be an appeal of Laurel return instead of a new submission. Here is the original submission: (https://oscar.sca.org/index.php?action=145&id=81006)
