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

The following submissions were registered by the SCA College of Arms, November 2016:

Anita de Challis. Augmentation of arms. Gules, a seeblatt and a chief doubly enarched Or, for augmentation on a canton overall gules in pale a sun and a moon in her plenitude within a bordure argent.
Caell Robertson. Device change. Sable, two bat-winged, scorpion-tailed lions combattant Or and a bordure rayonny argent.
Please advise the submitter to draw the tails further from the body of the creatures so they are easier to identify as scorpions' tails.
The submitter's old device, Per pale argent and sable, a dolmen counterchanged, is retained as a badge.
Ulrica Anna of Twin Moons. Name and device. Per pale raguly argent and vert, a dragon contourny sable and a dandelion slipped and leaved Or.
Twin Moons is the registered name of an SCA branch.

The following submissions were returned for further work, November 2016:

Elizabeth Æthelwulfes dohtor and Morgan Æthelwulfes sunu. Badge. Per pale gules and sable, a kolovrat and in chief a coronet Or.
This device is returned for running afoul of SENA A2A which states "On first registration of any particular element, documentation must be presented that the element and its depiction may be registered. This means presenting evidence that the element is eligible to be registered and that the specific depiction is attested or is otherwise compatible with period style." No documentation was provided by the submitter or during commentary indicating that a kolovrat was a registerable charge. Specifically, no evidence was presented that this item was used in period heraldry, that it was similar to things used in period heraldry, or even that it was known and used in other contexts in period Europe.
We decline to rule at this point as to whether this charge, sometimes described as Slavic swastika, is offensive. If the submitters find documentation for this charge, they should address this issue.
The submitters are court barons and count/countess and thus entitled to bear a coronet on their armory.
Mons Tonitrus, Barony of. Badge. Sable, a thunderbolt between flaunches argent surmounted by a bordure denticulada counterchanged. This badge is returned due to the bordure denticulada surmounting the flaunches. While flaunches may be charged, a bordure surmounting flaunches has long been cause for return.
The group has two badges registered with a bordure surmounting flaunches. However, these badge have a simple bordure and thus the grandfather clause cannot be used to register this badge as SENA A2B3 states that "Only the exact, actual elements which are registered may be used, not variants or patterns."
