Tir Righ IL dated 2011-04-03 (Jump to Submissions)

Greetings unto the College of Heralds!

Commentary on this letter is due May 2nd

Red Flame Herald meetings:

Next meeting is scheduled for May 7th at the Barony of Lions Gate Summer Defenders Tourney! Exact time to be announced at the event.

From Silver Yale

First and foremost I would like to thank all those who have helped our Principality by actively commenting on our letters. We've had a great interest by others who are looking at coming back to Heraldry in our Principality and who are now on OSCAR observing the commentary. But to those who are commenting now, your assistance in getting us going is no small feat and I can't thank you enough for your efforts and aid in teaching others coming aboard.

Many of our Heralds had moved onto other ways to serve their Branches via the Exchequers office, Seneschal, Chamberlain, etc, and it's great to see them get back into the love of Heraldry. Things are taking shape and we are on track to transferring the submissions office to Alicia de Wilfulle by June Investiture. Our Lynx Herald is busy with updates to our website and things are moving at a steady pace. From my angle it's an amazing sight to see everyone come together and show why Heraldry and those that practice it inspire me everyday.

In Service to Crown and College,

Caitrina Silver Yale

3: John de Rokyngham - Resub Badge

(Fieldless) On a cross patonce Or a roundel quarterly argent and gules

Name was registered in October 2010.

Previous badge submission of (fieldless) On a roundel quarterly argent and gules, a cross patonce voided Or was returned January 2011 due to style issues of a divided roundel on a fieldless background.

As with the last submission there are issues with the graphic as the lines on the cross giving a 3D shadowing effect are also giving the illusion of the quarterly lines being off centre. College is willing to assist submitter and correct issues with images and forms before being forwarded to Laurel if no conflicts or other style issues are found.

• Submitter desires a female name.
• No major changes.
• Language (13th Century England) most important.
