Gotta Catch Them All – A Pennsic Challenge

Thu, 2016-07-28 11:19

The following is being posted on behalf of Her Grace, Mary of Northshield, formerly of the East.

Greetings unto the Known World and those going to Pennsic from Duchess Mary of Northshield!

If you were ‘going to catch them all’ at Pennsic, what would you catch?  We have the most exotic creatures all around us, we just have to look.  This year I am sponsoring a quest for young and old to ‘catch’ – SCA style.

The goal is simple – seek and find people from every stage of progression from every kingdom.  I have a form to help you keep track and if you bring that form back to the Games Tent by 8/11 you will get a prize for your efforts. Whoever caught the most/’them all’ gets a special prize.

Truly, the real prize will be the people you meet and the things you learn!

Forms can be obtained at the Games Tent, or you can print the PDF: Pennsiccatchthemall

And since we are an increasingly digital society if you feel inclined, and, it is not offensive to your ‘catch’ please post pictures with #Pennsiccatchthemall

Duchess Mary of Carrigart, Kingdom of Northshield

Pennsic Scribal Gathering / Rencontre des Scribes de l’Est à Pennsic

Sat, 2016-07-23 22:14

En français

The Signet’s Office will be hosting an East Kingdom Scribal Get
Together at Pennsic, in EK Royal at 2pm on Sunday, August 7. Goodies
will be served!

This is an informal gathering: a chance for the scribes to get to know
each other a bit better, to see each other’s work, and for the Office
to show its appreciation for all the amazing work of the scribes of
the East.

Please bring your portfolios! I know we’re all living in the digital
age, but if you can possibly bring something that shows your work
(even just printing out your 3 favorite pieces), that would be great.
It is always inspiring to see other scribes’ work, and get to talk to
them about it.

New scribes are also very welcome.

Please contact Mistress Eva Woderose with any questions.

L’Office du Signet sera hôte d’une rencontre des Scribes du Royaume de l’Est à Pennsic, dans le campement Royal de l’Est le dimanche 7 août, à 2pm. De petites gâteries vous seront servies !

Ceci se veut une rencontre informelle: une chance pour les scribes d’apprendre à se connaître un peu mieux, d’apprécier le travail des autres, ainsi qu’une occasion pour l’Office de démontrer son appréciation pour le travail extraordinaire effectué par les scribes de l’Est.

Veuillez amener vos portfolios ! Je sais que nous vivons tous dans une ère digitale, mais si vous pouviez possiblement emmener quelque chose qui démontre votre travail (même peut-être seulement imprimer vos 3 pièces préférées), ce serait fortement apprécié. Il est toujours inspirant de voir le travail d’autres scribes, en plus de pouvoir en discuter avec eux.

Les nouveaux scribes sont aussi les bienvenus.

Veuillez contacter Maîtresse Eva Woderose avec vos questions:

The Society College of Heralds runs on monthly cycles and letters. Each month, the College processes name and armory submissions from all of the Kingdoms. Final decisions on submissions are made at the monthly meetings of the Pelican Queen of Arms (names) and the Wreath Queen of Arms (armory). Pelican and Wreath then write up their decisions in a Letter of Acceptances and Return (LoAR). After review and proofreading, LoARs generally are released two months after the meeting where the decisions are made.

An “acceptance” indicates that the item(s) listed are now registered with the Society. A “return” indicates that the item is returned to the submitter for additional work. Most items are registered without comments. Sometimes, the LoAR will address specific issues about the name or armory or will praise the submitter/herald on putting together a very nice historically accurate item.

The following results are from the April 2016 Wreath and Pelican meetings. These results include the last batch of submissions from Pennsic 2015, as well as the new badges and Order names for the awards created by King Brennan II and Queen Caoilfhionn II.

EAST acceptances

Alana Snowe. Reblazon of device. Gyronny sable and Or, a New World dogwood blossom and an orle azure.

Registered in October of 2014 as Gyronny sable and Or, a dogwood blossom and an orle azure, the default dogwood has been declared to be the European version.

Alexandre Saint Pierre. Device change. Quarterly vert and sable, in saltire a key Or and a key argent.

The question was raised of whether the association of the byname Saint Pierre with the crossed keys should be considered presumptuous. It is not. It should more likely be understood as a cant.

The submitter’s old device, Quarterly vert and sable, a swept-hilt rapier bendwise proper between two roses argent barbed and seeded proper, is retained as a badge.

Alexandria Guyon de Champagne. Name and device. Argent, two fish haurient embowed respectant azure, maintaining between their tails a roundel sable, between three fleurs-de-lys azure.

Submitted as Alexandrea Guyon de Champange, the name was changed in kingdom to Alexandrea Guyon de Champagne to correct the spelling of the second byname to the submitter’s preferred form. The given name Alexandrea was crossed out on the form and Alexandria typed in its place. However, the spelling of this element was not changed in the Letter of Intent.

No evidence was found to support the submitted spelling of the given name. We have changed the given name to Alexandria, which was documented in the Letter of Intent as a German given name from 1560. It is also a 16th-17th century English given name used by both men and women, found in the FamilySearch Historical Records.

This name combines a German or English given name and a French double byname. This is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA.

An Dubhaigeainn, Barony. Order name Order of Drakes Spur.

An Dubhaigeainn, Barony. Order name Order of Perseverance and badge. (Fieldless) A duck’s foot affronty argent.

An Dubhaigeainn, Barony. Badge for Order of Sylvanus. (Fieldless) In saltire a shepherd’s crook and a feather argent.

Antonius Blandus. Name and device. Argent, three lozenges gules and a chief triangular vert.

Arron Guyon de Champagne. Name and device. Argent, an eagle with its head facing to sinister azure sustaining an arrow fesswise sable all between three fleurs-de-lys azure.

Submitted as Arron Guyon de Champang, the second byname was spelled de Champange in the Letter of Intent. A timely correction to the Letter of Intent noted that the submitter wanted the spellingChampagne. We have made this change to register this name.

This name combines a Dutch or Flemish given name with two French bynames. This is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA.

Cecily of Elfhollow. Reblazon of device. Per fess azure and vert, a fess wavy Or between a portative organ and a New World dogwood blossom argent seeded vert.

Registered in April of 1989 as Per fess azure and vert, a fess wavy Or between a portative organ and a dogwood blossom argent, seeded vert, the default dogwood has been declared to be the European version.

Christiana Crane. Badge for Fulton House. (Fieldless) In pale a martlet conjoined to three annulets interlaced in fess argent.

Culen mac Cianain. Badge. Sable, a boar statant contourny and a bordure embattled argent.

Please advise the submitter to draw the embattlements deeper.

East, Kingdom of the. Order name Order of Apollos Arrow and badge. (Fieldless) On a sun argent an arrow azure.

East, Kingdom of the. Order name Order of the Silver Brooch and badge. (Fieldless) A closed brooch argent.

This badge does not conflict with the badge of Morgan Catriona Bruce, (Fieldless) An open penannular brooch bendwise argent or the badge of David MacColin, Sable, an open penannular brooch, pin to base, argent. In each case, there is a DC for fieldlessness and another DC for orientation. We decline at this time to decide whether there is a DC between the types of brooches.

Nice badge!

East, Kingdom of the. Badge for Order of the Silver Brooch. Per pale argent and azure, a closed brooch counterchanged.

Nice badge!

East, Kingdom of the. Order name Order of the Silver Tyger and badge. Azure, a tyger rampant and an orle argent.

The submitter has permission to conflict with the device of Þórý Veðardóttir: Azure, a winged ounce segreant within an orle argent.

East, Kingdom of the. Order name Order of the Silver Wheel and badge. (Fieldless) A cartwheel argent.

The submitter has permission to conflict with the badge of Serena Lascelles: (Fieldless) A Catherine’s wheel argent and the device of Raichbhe Walkman, Per bend sinister gules and purpure, a cartwheel argent.

Nice badge!

East, Kingdom of the. Acceptance of transfer of badge from Jadwiga Zajaczkowa for East Kingdom Herbalist’s Guild. (Fieldless) On a mortar and pestle Or a sage leaf bendwise sinister vert.

East Kingdom Herbalist’s Guild is a generic identifier.

Edwyn Le Clerc. Name.

Fiona MacNeill. Reblazon of device. Purpure, on a chevron between three drop-spindles Or three New World dogwood flowers gules seeded Or barbed vert.

Registered in February of 1989 as Purpure, on a chevron between three threaded drop spindles Or, three dogwood flowers gules, seeded Or, leaved vert, the default dogwood has been declared to be the European version.

Gyða Úlfsdóttir. Name.

Havre de Glace, Barony of. Heraldic title Nef Poursivant.

Submitted as Poursuivant de la Nef, the pattern of [rank] of the [charge] was not documented in the Letter of Intent or by commenters.

Juliana de Luna’s article “Heraldic Titles from the Middle Ages and Renaissance” (http://medievalscotland.org/jes/HeraldicTitles/) provides several examples of French titles named for charges, such asOliffantEspy, and Sanglier. Another source is Michael Jones, “Vers une prosopographie des hérauts bretons médiévaux : une enquête à poursuivre” [In: Comptes rendus des séances de l’Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres, 2001;145(3):1399-1426; http://www.persee.fr/doc/crai_0065-0536_2001_num_145_3_16352%5D.

These sources rarely show how the French heralds were titled or addressed in full in the primary sources, and usually provide only the substantive elements. Some examples include Monffort le Herault,Guingamp le poursuivantDinan poursivant, and Orlyans poursuivant et herault de mons, named after places, and Espy heraud de Bretaigne and Fuzil, porsuivant d’armes de mondit seigneur, named after charges. Therefore, we have changed this title to Nef Poursivant to more closely match the attested patterns.

Hedda Bonesetter. Name.

Helen Attebroke. Name and device. Per chevron vert and argent, two pairs of barnacles and a harp counterchanged.

Jadwiga Zajaczkowa. Transfer of badge to East, Kingdom of the. (Fieldless) On a mortar and pestle Or a sage leaf bendwise sinister vert.

Juliota de Castelnau d’Arri. Name and device. Quarterly vert and ermine, on a key cross Or a cross clechy purpure.

Submitted as Juliota de Castèlnòu d’Arri, the name was changed to Juliota de Castelnau d’Arri to match the documentation that could be found.

Juliota was documented in the Letter of Intent as a possible, but less likely, diminutive form of Julia or Juliana from the Occitan region, citing an Academy of Saint Gabriel report, but no dated instances of this form were included in the documentation. Juliota is found as a Latinized form dated to 1353 in Documents inédits pour servir à l’histoire du Maine au XIVe siècle(https://books.google.com/books?id=IXhAAQAAMAAJ). It is also dated to 1318 in Mémoires de la Société des antiquaires de Normandie(http://gallica.bnf.fr/ark:/12148/bpt6k2000762/f332.image.r=Juliota).

The submitter requested authenticity for “Southern France, 14th-15th century”. The given name was firmly dated to northern France in the 14th century. The byname was dated to the early 17th century in the Letter of Intent, citing a French book published in Geneva. As neither element was documented in an Occitan source and the byname could not be documented earlier than 1618, this name does not meet the submitter’s request for authenticity, but it is registerable.

Kathryn of Pinkie Cleugh. Name and device. Sable, a panther rampant gardant Or spotted purpure and on a chief Or a furison sable between two thistles proper.

Pinkie Cleugh is a lingua Anglica form of the site of a battle in Scotland in 1547, but both elements use 16th or 17th century Scots spellings. Pinkie and Pinky are found in The Records of the Parliaments of Scotland to 1707 (RPS) (http://www.rps.ac.uk/mss/1641/8/455), dated to 1641, and in ‘Supplementary extracts: 1580’, in Extracts From the Records of the Burgh of Edinburgh, 1573-1589 (British History Online http://www.british-history.ac.uk/edinburgh-burgh-records/1573-89/pp547-556), respectively. A cleugh is a glen or valley. This spelling is found as a deuterotheme (as part of the place name Bugcleugh) in RPS, dated to 1625 (http://www.rps.ac.uk/mss/A1625/10/1). The spelling cleughe appears as a deuterotheme (as part of the place name Merche Cleughe) in ‘Henry VIII: September 1545, 26-30’, in Letters and Papers, Foreign and Domestic, Henry VIII, Volume 20 Part 2, August-December 1545 (http://www.british-history.ac.uk/letters-papers-hen8/vol20/no2/pp195-233).

Magnús Surtsson. Device. Vert, three triangles inverted conjoined two and one between three stag’s attires each in annulo and conjoined to itself Or.

Mikulaj von Meissen. Badge. (Fieldless) On a tankard argent foaming Or a mallet sable.

Miriam Giant Killer. Device. Per fess vert and argent, in pale a sun Or charged with a sword azure and a pomegranate slipped and leaved gules seeded Or.

Rennata von Landstuhl. Reblazon of device. Quarterly purpure and vert, a fret couped argent and an orle of New World dogwood blossoms argent seeded Or.

Registered in October of 2014 Quarterly purpure and vert, a fret couped argent and an orle of dogwood blossoms argent seeded Or, the default dogwood has been declared to be the European version.

Sewolt Belßner. Badge. (Fieldless) A coney sejant sable maintaining beneath its foreleg an annulet Or.

Shannon inghean Bhriain uí Dhuilleáin. Badge. Argent, an escallop azure within a chaplet of ivy vert.

Sofya Gianetta di Trieste. Name.

This name combines a Hungarian given name and an Italian given name and locative byname. This is an acceptable lingual mix under Appendix C of SENA.

Sylvana Dagfinsdottir. Reblazon of device. Vert, in bend sinister three New World dogwood blossoms argent seeded sable between two scarpes Or.

Registered in July of 1980 Vert, on a bend sinister vert fimbriated Or three dogwood blossoms proper. [Cornus florida], the default dogwood has been declared to be the European version. Additionally, an ordinary may not be of the same tincture as the field, even when fimbriated.

Syszczyna z Pieszczatki. Name and device. Per pale Or and purpure, perched atop a key fesswise counterchanged a crow sable.

Submitted as Syszczyna z Piszczatka, the name was changed in kingdom to Syszczyna z Pieszczatky to try to change the locative to the genitive form. However, no documentation was provided to show that this was a plausible genitive form in Polish.

The apparent genitive form Pieszczatki is found in Sumptibus Societatis Scientiarum Wratislaviensis, Prace Wroc{l/}awskiego Towarzystwa Naukowego (https://books.google.com/books?id=iSpDAQAAIAAJ), possibly dated to 1530. Therefore, we have changed the byname to z Pieszczatki to register this name.

Temyl von Zweibrucken. Name and device. Per pall inverted sable, Or, and vairy Or and sable, in chief a mask of comedy counterchanged.

The Letter of Intent included documentation of the form Zweibruckn in a 1635 map. In addition, Noir Licorne documented the spelling Zweibrücken during the Pelican decision meeting, dated to 1616. The latter instance is found in Erzehlung welcher gestalt nach Absterben des … Herren Ruprechts römischen Königs … (dessen) Erblandt under dero Söhn vertheilt by Jacob-Ludwig Beuther (https://books.google.com/books?id=RURRAAAAcAAJ&pg=PA17). Therefore, we are able to register this name.

Tiberius Sergius Valens. Name (see RETURNS for device).

William of Wyndhaven. Device. Vert, a bar gemel Or between an aeolus and a seahorse argent.

Ynés Balam. Name and device. Or, a panther salient contourny sable spotted argent and incensed gules, a bordure gules estoilly Or.

Both elements are found in Cozumel, Mexico, dated to 1570, making this an excellent 16th century Spanish name!

EAST returns

Gillian de Whittemere. Device change. Argent, a blackbird rising and a fox rampant contourny tenné marked argent, on a chief triangular azure a rose argent.

This device is returned administratively for using an altered form. The shape of the shield is significantly different from the shape defined on the Laurel-approved form.

On resubmission the submitter should be made aware that the fox here is not proper, as blazoned on the Letter of Intent, which would have the socks sable and only the tip of the tail argent. As depicted here, it is returnable for contrast issues.

Tiberius Sergius Valens. Device. Sable, on a flame Or a death’s head gules.

This device is returned for redraw, for violating SENA A2C2 which states “Elements must be drawn to be identifiable.” The flame here is not recognizable as such.

Additionally, it appears to be tenné rather than Or which is, by precedent, independently grounds for return.

King Kenric’s Pennsic Challenge / Défi de Pennsic du Roi Kenric

Wed, 2016-07-13 18:33

En français

In an effort to encourage crossing over to different fields at the war, I would like to announce the following:

If you compete in armored combat, rapier, archery, or thrown weapons, and you compete in all war point activities which you are eligible for in at least two of these areas, I would like to recognize your efforts with a token.

(For archery and thrown weapons, that means throwing or shooting each shoot/throw as many times are you are allowed.)

If you compete in all war point activities for three of these areas, there will be a slightly different token.

If you compete in all four, well, one, you’re insane. But if you do, I’ll have to think of something because I don’t really expect it…

Traduction par Baron Godfroy de Falaise

Dans le but d’encourager la participation aux différentes activités martiales à la Grande guerre, j’annonce ce qui suit :

Si vous participez au combat en armure, à l’escrime, au tir à l’arc ou aux armes de jet, et si vous participez à toutes les activités auxquelles vous êtes éligible et qui contribuent aux points de guerre dans au moins 2 catégories, j’aimerais vous récompenser en vous donnant un gage particulier.

À titre d’exemple, pour le tir à l’arc et les armes de jet, cela implique de tirer ou de lancer aussi souvent que vous y êtes autorisé.

Si vous participez à 3 catégories, un gage un peu différent vous sera octroyé. Et si par la plus grande des chances, vous en veniez à participer à 4 activités, eh bien….vous êtes complètement fou!

Mais si vous le faites réellement, je devrai trouver quelques chose, car je ne m’attend pas à cette possibilité!
