    Very nice arms! I wonder how it would be blazoned though.

    I think he is asking how you would describe that verbally. I wonder myself.

    You assumed wrong, my friend.

    It might be good, I don't know. But FireLotus warned everyone in the original COA instructions not to assume anything. (see quote above)

    Looks awesome. Not sure it will pass muster. However, it is definitely unique and can be identified at a distance. Beware the demon tiki.

    I think the original is a bit too busy. The one above eliminates the virtue symbol and roughly blazons as follows:

    Party per chevron Sanguine and Sable, a chevron wavy Ash, two eyes fesswise in chief Ash, a skull in base Ash and Sanguine

    The only issue with the above is the ash colored skull, it has to be a metal because of the ash wavy chevron and black base.

    Great example why all these rules should be relaxed.

    I means its great that people want to follow the rules of heraldry to create an emblem for their character or their guild. It fits in really well for many RPers but lets face not everyone wants to operate to that style or lets face it even understands it.

    I would say the majority are likely to be more interested in producing some that is visually appealing and unique, regardless of the technical rules.

    The virtue symbol wont be able to be placed that way :(
    Also the skull color would need to be changed

    is everything.

    I think the current CoA rule system is awesome. It protects the game from TTP, and all other sorts of unknowns. Also I think it helps streamline the art direction that the game hopes to adhere to. I would even dare say I think the rules could benefit from imposing some more guidelines on charges.

    this is the third separate design i have come up with for the CoA, all following the basic rules (color on color, etc), and the previous two were rejected for "creative" reasons.

    I would consider all the silver stuff to be one element, so there is no color on color or metal on metal issue. Is that a bad assumption? If so, why?

    If my design is rejected, well... well, then, oh well. No CoA for Bubonic, cause 3 times is enuf for me. I'll keep this as my forum avatar.

    Sad days.

    May I ask what you would call all that silver stuff? Not being funny, but in the world of heraldry the image must be able to be described so another artist can duplicate it from just the blazon.

    sigh... unfortunate.

    If, in this videogame, designs are being rejected for no other reason than "someone else wouldn't be able to easily describe it in words and recreate it", then the rules should probably be re-evaluated.

    No one is ever going to "recreate" my CoA. Why does it matter? Just because?

    Look, I'm not trying to get on your case. I understand you are working within the framework you are given, and I respect the fact that you are attempting this massive undertaking.

    Bubonic, If you and others are dissatisfied with the framework we are limited to, might I recommend posting a question for the hangout next week? Not very detailed, as the long questions don't usually get asked. Granted the pledge reward is RG's vision so I'm not sure who would make the call if there are changes. Worth a try, and there are a few other players that would be interested also.
