ATENVELDT COLLEGE OF HERALDS 25 February 2019, A.S. LIII
LETTER OF PRESENTATION Kingdom of Atenveldt
Unto Their Royal Majesties Morgan and Elizabeth; Baron Seamus MacDade, Aten Principal Herald; Heralds in the Atenveldt College of Heralds; and to All Whom These Presents Come,
Greetings from Marta as tu Mika-Mysliwy, Brickbat Herald and Parhelium Herald for the Kingdom of Atenveldt!
This is the Estrella XXXV (2019) Atenveldt Letter of Presentation. It contains only submissions from Estrella XXXV. The College of Arms asks that a Letter of Presentation/Intent have no more than 55 items; unfortunately, with the weather-shortened Consultation Table at the War, that isn't an issue this year (sigh). Please have commentary to me by 20 March 2019.
The following submissions appear in the March 2019 Atenveldt Letter of Intent:
Commentary for this letter was provided by Dietrich von Sachsen (Green Mantle Herald), ffride wlffsdotter, Iago ab Adam, Michael Gerard Curtememoire.

Dawn Greenwall (Granite Mountain): DEVICE RESUBMISSION from Laurel, November 2018: Per fess Or and vert masoned Or, a demi-sun issuant from the line of division gules, a chief purpure.
It was suggested by Iago ab Adam: “On a field with a chief, the fess line should be half way up the remaining space. This line of division is too high.” The emblazon was redrawn.

Hrafn is an Old Norse male given name (“Viking Names found in Landnámabók,” Aryanhwy merch Catmael, http://www.ellipsis.cx/~liana/names/norse/landnamabok.html). The byname Vargr, “wolf,” (also a “thief, robber, miscreant”) is found in A Concise Dictionary of Old Icelandic, Geir T. Zoëga, Oxford, 1910, https://archive.org/details/concisedictionar001857/page/n6. This is a more search-friendly site: http://norse.ulver.com/dct/zoega/v.html. The client desires a male name and if most interested in the land/culture of the name (11th-12th C. Norway); he would like it to be authentic for Norwegian (language and/or culture).

The previous submission, Sable, two serpents nowed in a Bourchier knot, that to dexter Or and that to sinister inverted argent., was returned for “conflict with the badge of Bourchier (important non-SCA armory), (Tinctureless) A Bourchier knot. There is one DC for the field, but no difference granted for the presence of the serpents' heads.”
