Atenveldt Submissions (excerpted from the S.C.A. College of Arms' Letters of Acceptance and Return)

The following submissions were registered by the SCA Collge of Arms, March 2020:

Aurora Faw. Badge. Azure, two sea-unicorns erect addorsed regardant tails entwined argent armed Or.
This was pended for redraw on the November 2019 Letter of Acceptances and Returns.
Cassandra Bakere the Chirurgeon. Device. Azure, a mortar and pestle and in chief a baker's peel fesswise argent charged with a loaf of bread palewise proper.
This was pended for redraw on the November 2019 Letter of Acceptances and Returns.
Granite Mountain, Barony of. Heraldic title Erminois Ermine Pursuivant.
This heraldic title was pended on the October 2019 Letter of Acceptances and Returns for discussion of whether, as a matter of policy, furs should be treated like other heraldic tinctures for the purposes of creating heraldic titles and order names. Effective as of the date of this letter, single-word fur tinctures, such as erminois, vair, ermine and pean may be used in order names and heraldic titles just like any other heraldic tinctures. See the Cover Letter for more details.
This heraldic title uses the attested pattern of Heraldic Tincture + Heraldic Charge, and thus can be registered.
Lucia de Broc. Name.
Milana Lancia. Reblazon of device. Per pale vert and Or, a vol and in chief three passion nails in pall inverted conjoined at their heads counterchanged.
Originally registered in November 2008 and transferred to Milana as a device in May 2012 with the blazon Per pale vert and Or, a vol and in chief a tricune counterchanged, we are clarifying the combination of charges in the secondary charge group. See the Cover Letter for a fuller discussion.
Mons Tonitrus, Barony of. Badge for Baronial Warband. Per bend sinister sable and vert, a wolf rampant maintaining two lightning bolts in saltire argent.
Baronial Warband is a generic identifier.
There is a step from period practice for the use of lightning bolts outside of the context of a thunderbolt.
Richard Niall. Name.
Nice English name for the 1570s!
Senan Valens. Name change from holding name Shannon of Atenveldt.
This name can be registered either as a Gaelic saint's name combined with an English surname or as a wholly English name using the gray period surname Senan as a given name.
Seonaid inghean Uí Mórdha. Device. Per pale sable and vert, a scorpion Or and a natural tiger's head couped Or marked sable, on a chief Or three lotus blossoms in profile sable.
This was pended for redraw on the November 2019 Letter of Acceptances and Returns.
There is a step from period practice for the use of a natural tiger's head.
Viktor Iosif Syl'vestrov. Name change from Joseph Grünewald of York.
The submitter's previous name, Joseph Grünewald of York, is retained as an alternate name.
Wolffgang von Luxemburg. Device. Per pale sable and purpure, in saltire two double-bitted axes, in chief a longbow fesswise argent.

The following submissions were returned for furthe work:

Mineko of Monster Hall. Badge. (Fieldless) A domestic cat sejant affronty sinister paw raised argent within and conjoined to a mascle checky sable and argent.
This badge is returned for blurring the distinction between sejant and sejant erect. While the difference is easily visible when the creature is in profile due to the angle of the spine, it becomes invisible when the charge is affronty.
This badge is also returned for lack of documentation of the posture sejant affronty, paw raised. The January 2018 Cover Letter discusses affronty postures for quadrupeds in greater detail, and the only documentation found at the time for such a posture in attested period armory was sejant erect affronty.
Orabilis Douw. Badge. Vert, in pale a raven statant contourny wings addorsed sable atop a skull transfixed by an arrow fesswise reversed argent.
This badge must be returned for lack of contrast. The sable raven does not have adequate contrast with the vert field. SENA A3B4a requires charges to have good contrast with the background on which they are placed. Absent an Individually Attested Pattern (IAP) of black animate charges on green fields, this cannot be registered. The raven needs to be neutral or metal in tincture.
This badge must also be returned for lack of identifiability. The arrow as drawn is difficult to identify. However, were the entire arrow larger, sufficient to be considered co-primary with the skull and raven, it would be returned for violating SENA A3D2a, Slot Machine. As drawn it is just small enough to be a secondary charge.
Upon resubmission, the ocular and nasal cavities should be the same tincture as the rest of the skull, but at least they are not the tincture of the field. The gap between the jaws, however, should be the tincture of the field as there is nothing behind the mouth to obscure the field.
