    i would like submit this Modified COA as replacement for my current one if possible: the new design provides increased visibility and consistency while still remaining true to the original idea.

    thanks

    The letters are in Runic, but looking at the other designs, nobody else is using letters so just the Red Bird on the shield is perfectly fine.

    Are we good to go?

    Thank you

    Rufus, that sun-in-splendour rising is beautiful, and you seem to know quite a bit about heraldry. Have you gotten involved with the college yet?

    Thank you, Ermine King. I appreciate the complement, and yes, I've spoken with the Vair King, and the Draccony Queen and have been made a Macer of the College for the time being.

    Well, we're just having a rabble anyway.
    We're missing a key person.

    I need some help putting together a coat of arms. I have some basic thoughts and some layouts from a few online generators.

    What is the best approach to refine my current work and have it validated against the set of rules?

    Here's the basic concept from the generator. It needs some changes that I could not make there.

    (per enarched fess azure and vert chief sable ( lozenge tenney fimbriated orange lozenge tenney fimbriated orange lozenge tenney fimbriated orange lozenge tenney fimbriated orange) hand argent fimbriated sable)

    I may want to replace the lozenge with an animal hide, or I may find something else more visually appealing or aesthetic.

    The hand definitely needs to go. I want an animal, but I have not yet chosen one. I'm looking for a list of pre-existing choices for reference. If I understand the terminology correctly, the animal should be Passant, or as closed to 'tamed' as possible.

    Basic character concept is a Royal Artisan leatherworker with a focus on high quality taming collars.
    I have not yet named my in game character.

    I prefer the Couche shape from this generator, but it looks like the standard is the Heater, which I'm fine with.

    Ronan is on top of this, so I'll mostly keep quiet.
    But, since I've got a break here from work, I'll say this seems like it's going to look great.
    There is a library of charges you might look at here:
    http://soacoa.org/wiki/Category:Charges

    If you don't see something you like, we can always add something.

    Also, the shape of the shield will not matter. We're using a uniform shape, but in the game it could be anything.

    Yeah if there is a charge any of us who are helping Ronan with art for the College of Arms would be happy to help out in finding or creating one that will work and fit the rules and needs. There are some passant ones already in the generator. :)

    Here are some of the charges that are not in the generator yet.
    The basic shape is what we are working with, trying to keep all shapes the same. Coren's generator actually renders to be used on most shapes, but it depends on what the Dev's have chosen as to what will show in the game.
    If you see a charge in that group that you like, let us know and one of us can create something for you.

    A rough of the arms you made in the generator. This means I have the form in my graphics system and can make changes whenever you like.

    Haha beat to the punch by Frank and Golem!
