Re: Veteran Opinions on proposed Device
- I have to totally agree with Sara. Your first choice rocks and I
conflict checked it also (I'm a herald that's what I do :-) ) and I
concur no conflicts. I have to also agree that your second choice
although very nice is so over done in the SCA that I would steer away
from it. But, at least it isn't bend sinister (although done a lot in
the SCA isn't really a good period type choice).
I'd say get your paperwork all lined out and when your wayward herald
returns from Pennsic...submit...submit...submit!
(Who hopes one day to also be a wayward herald at Pennsic!)
- What if I changed the griffin to Or and made the pheon Sable. My
partner is also looking to register a device and has fallen in love
with this one. Suggestions? Thank you

the use of four different tinctures instead of two does make this
resemble period style even less than the other one did.
