    That might be a good question to PM Coren with.

    We have your dragons loaded to the college as a charge. I wonder if fimbriation would accomplish the same thing.
    It seems like there are several that would require stacking, so I hope that's possible.

    Thanks, Sir Frank! I'll do that. (Obviously without the border, I would be breaking the heraldic color on color guidelines :()

    I don't think you're in danger of breaking any rules.
    Fimbriation is in the builder already, so even if we don't stack, we could fimbriate.
    I don't know what the default thickness for fimbriation is. I'll play with that and see.

    http://soacoa.org/blazon/manual.php?blazon=(gironny sable and gules roundel sable fimbriated or)

    Worst case, the gold will be narrow. But, Coren is the guy to talk to.

    Sir Frank thanks for adding the annulet bell charge to the charges of the college. Will it be possible to recreate my current design with just this one charge? I am asking because of the gules roundels.

    Btw. here is my updated Coat of Arms :). Would you please take this for "Blake" and change to "Duffrey Blake".

    Hope I got the final design ready before offiical release :rolleyes:

    I really have no idea.
    My gut feeling is that adding the red will be more difficult than straight counter-charging.
    This is something else we'll need to ask Coren.

    In the case it will not be possible, you may add the bell charge (4 roundels only) as well. I assume with stacking allowed it should be working.

    Edit:
    I may as well provide the annulet and the 4 roundels as two seperate charges if this helps. Please let me know.

    Coren just confirmed that you can only stack charges in the manual blazon - just put each of the successive charges in parentheses :)

    Sir Frank, The image was great and the tincture seems to work nicely. Can I add the R B at the top? If so, then were good to go otherwise use what you sent me.

    We're discouraging adding letters at all, but if you really want RB at the top, we could do that.

    That's perfectly ok. The letters are cool but not necessary. Without is fine

    Thank you again

    Maybe the question im going to ask is already answered, but if generate a COA using one of the generators, can we link to it instead of uploading the picture?

    As far as I can see, that's fine.
    I would suggest fimbriating the gold drop, because I lose it in the white background. It's half on the blue, so I think it's legal the way it is, but I just think it would look better with an outline.
