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

The following submissions have been registered by the SCA College of Arms, March 2015:

Candice Libel. Badge. Per fess wavy Or and azure, in pale two dragonflies volant fesswise that in chief contourny vert and argent.
Caye Dance the stori-makere. Name.

The byname the stori-makere ("story writer") was documented in the Letter of Intent as an occupation or description found in the Middle English Dictionary (MED).

Similar occupations and descriptive terms referring to writing are found in the MED: Rymour ("poet, minstrel"), tragedien ("a makere of dytees that highten tragedies"), Writere ("writer"), psalme-wrytter ("psalm writer"), chronicler, and text-writers. The MED also includes descriptions of classical authors and other writers: Affricanus, ├że writer of stories; Erodotus, writer of stories; and Henr. Archer, textewriter. At least two of these, le Rymour and le Writere are period bynames.

Although stori-makere is not an attested occupational byname, we will give the submitter the benefit of the doubt and can register this name as submitted.

Conchobar of Aquaterra. Name.

Aquaterra is the registered name of an SCA branch.
Elisabetta di Scarlatto della Luna. Name and device. Per fess azure and vert, a fess indented on the upper edge between a decrescent argent and two arrows inverted in saltire Or.

Frances Rae Cole Fisher. Name and device. Per fess engrailed argent and azure, three drakkars under sail contourny gules and three fish fretted in triangle Or.

Please advise the submitter to draw the sails rectangular so they don't appear to be in trian aspect.

Leofwen Gunnarskona. Name.

Submitted as Leofwen Gunnarkona, the correct form of the marital byname is Gunnarskona. We have made this change in order to register this name.

In commentary, Metron Ariston noted that Leofwen may have been a normalized or inflected form. Period forms are Lefwen and Leofwenne (oblique form), from which we can interpolate the submitted spelling, Leofwen.

Michael Woode Forester. Name and device. Argent, a tree stump eradicated proper maintaining an axe sable hafted proper and on a chief triangular sable a moon in her plenitude argent.

Samuel Henry Ickeforde Thomas. Device. Per pale vert and argent, a fess checky sable and argent.

Stephan MacGrath. Badge. Or, on a rose gules between in saltire four crosses formy sable a fleur-de-lys argent.

Thyri Eirikskona. Name.

Twin Moons, Barony of. Order name Order of Harvests Moon and badge. Per fess argent and azure, in chief a moon in her plenitude gules, a bordure embattled counterchanged.

Submitted as Order of the Harvest Moon, a harvest moon is not a plausible heraldic charge, and the term itself could not be documented to period. However, Harvest is a late period English surname, which be used as a given name. Orders can be named after a given name and object of veneration. Therefore, we have changed this name to Order of Harvests Moon (using the period possessive form) in order to register this name.

Wade Greenwall. Device change. Vert masoned Or.

The submitter's old device, Per pale vert masoned Or and argent masoned sable, a tower counterchanged argent and vert, is retained as a badge. Nice cant!

Ysabeau Le Roux. Device. Quarterly purpure and sable, a wolf's head erased contourny argent and on a chief Or two mullets of four points gules.


The following submissions have been returned by the CoA for further work, March 2015:


Granite Mountain, Barony of. Branch name.
This branch name was accepted in December 1996 and its registration status was corrected in the November 2014 Errata Letter. Therefore, we have returned this resubmission, as it is redundant. (Yay!)

Gunnarr Bearshirt. Name.

The byname Bearshirt was intended as a lingua Anglica form of the Old Norse byname Berserkr. However, the translation of this word is simply Berserker. As the byname Bearshirt could not be documented any other way, we are forced to return this name.

Moira O'Droogan. Badge. Per pale purpure and vert, two dragonflies Or.

This device is returned for recoloring. Blazoned as purpure, both the scanned form and the mini-emblazon show the "purpure" portion of the field as azure.
Tomaso Floreano. Device change. Or, in bend sinister a wooden mallet bendwise inverted proper and a quill pen bendwise sinister, a bordure sable.
The previous return, administrative in nature, did not address the merits of the submission. Sadly this device must be returned for redraw. As depicted, the mallet and quill pen are neither palewise nor bendwise. On resubmission, the submitter should pay attention to requirements for unity of posture/orientation.
