    Grant added a flaming heart and a regular heart, but they position differently from the bleeding heart.
    Could you please go play and see if you come up with a design you like? You can see some attempts that I put in the Gallery under the various Sir Franks.

    Let me know what you think!

    I like this one. Beli - ? Daylar - ? @Sir Frank - I hope you won't say the overlapping is a no-no. What say you?

    Also, there are these that I made:

    Thank you for the heart and burning heart changes / options!!

    I would say the overlapping is fine, but it would take two more sovereigns to agree.
    We have an internal proposal to allow some color on color ( which would apply to the red on orange). I'm in favor of what you have here.
    In the design where you use draconny at a really small scale for the smallest sun, again I am in favor, but I think the argument will be made that it is too small to see, and therefore would be rejected.

    Here's my choice now for my own personal device. Thank you for the heart with wings! @Sir Frank - you and Grant are making me very happy! Thank you so much.

    Thank you very much. I'll submit this design for you, and wait for Daylar to answer on the guild version.

    After getting some sleep and coming back to this:
    Red on orange would not be permitted under the currently accepted rules, because it is color on color.

    The more relaxed rule we are considering involves dividing colors into three groups. Metals, dark colors, light colors. The new rule would be that you can't use metal on metal, dark color on dark color, or light color on light color, but anything else would be permitted. So, if you notice we try to have dark and light shades of colors, sanguine/gules, brunatre/orange, viridian/vert, etc...
    If we went with the new rule, gules and orange would both be light colors, so this still wouldn't be acceptable.

    Fimbriating is our go-to cheat to get around color rules, so fimbriating the heart with a metal or dark color would be my first guess at a work-around.
    If fimbriated with a metal, it should work under our current rules.
    If we adopt the new rule, then there would be several dark color choices you could use.

    Safer to go with a metal.

    This one's close to the first try. I'm really giving up at this point. We all liked the 1st one best minus the bloody drop at the bottom. No offense.

    Disappointing. And not a good move public relations wise.

    Why did they decide to do this ?
