    I jumped the gun, before - apologies. Now that I've managed to merge pledges and move up the food chain a bit I would like to formally submit the following design for review:

    [​IMG]

    The blazon for this is:
    Per fess azure and or, in chief a dragon couchant, or, and in base three pallets gules.

    or in English:
    Divided horizontally blue and gold, in the top a gold dragon lying down, and in the bottom three red vertical stripes.

    Interestingly, when I went back I saw that I had an incorrect blazon, from the first draft of when this device was submitted for approval in the Society of Creative Anachronism (SCA). The device was ultimately approved and, to this day, is my CoA at SCA events. I was always told that once our device was passed, we legally owned it, to do with as we please - which makes it perfect for use here for the "Swiftbow" family.

    Do we have a shortage of heralds?

    Not certain I would have time to help, but it's been mighty quiet in here....

    I am a bit busy irl, I know Grant is also. One of the hold ups is getting the charges into the new program. I need to learn how. Grant knows how, but trying to get the two of us together for more than 5 mins is a difficult task. Folks can keep placing requests here and as we move forward we will tackle them.

    Maybe I can help tackle this one.
    We will have to make the dragon couchant charge.
    I don't see any problem with the design.

    If you have a higher resolution dragon, that would be helpful.
    I will try to trace the one above, and see how that goes.

    Thank you. I will see what I can come up with. At work now, might be this evening before I can mess with it. Don't you just hate how these day jobs get in the way of SotA!

    P.S. It could be much worse, I could have submitted the other device (that will not be submitted because it will belong to a non-founder account):

    Thanks again for your work.

    Raven,
    I am working on the dragon couchant. Maybe between Frank and I we can get something good to use :)

    I've uploaded a device under Raven Swiftbow over on the College site.
    Hand crafted by a skilled artisan.

    That's nice work, Ronan!! As you may know, a couchant dragon is a guarding dragon. I don't think it will help me against the "Burninator" however, lol. Thanks to both you and Sir Frank - wonderful graphics work!
