Introduction

This work contains rulings of precedential relevance from the latter part of the second tenure of Master Da’ud ibn Auda as Laurel King of Arms of the Society for Creative Anachronism, covering the period from July, 1994 through the end of his tenure in June, 1996. During the second half of this time, from June, 1995 through June, 1996, Master Talan Gwynek served as Pelican King of Arms. As Pelican he made rulings on names and name issues. While Master Da’ud had the final authority, the name precedents from this period were written by Master Talan. The selection of material for this collection is my own, and with dreary inevitability it must disclaimed that this is not an official publication of the Society for Creative Anachronism nor its College of Arms. For the official texts of registrations and returns the reader is directed to the original documents.

I have tried to maintain a format consistent with previous collections of precedents. In particular, I have retained the practice of my immediate predecessor in dividing name and armory rulings into their own separate sections. I have retained the practice of my last two predecessors in including the name attached to the submission, rather than the older practice of citing by letter and page number alone. The subdivisions are my own, consistent as much as possible with those of the Ordinary and of previous compilations as is practicable.

There are two innovations in this compilation. All rules changes have been collected in Appendix A. (They are for the most part not included in the body.) Appendix B is included in recognition of the unique circumstances surrounding the implementation of the Modest Proposal. In addition to the initial implementation list, there were a significant number of rulings on non-SCA armory proposed for registration in the SCA. There is precedential interest in which were or were not registered, so this is given as Appendix B. Readers interested in the initial implementation list itself are directed to the original document.

The texts listed are taken directly from Letters of Acceptance and Return (LoAR), or in a few cases from the accompanying cover letters (CL). Text in [square brackets] is mine, providing editorial comment, summaries of omitted text, or replacing specific charges or names with more generally applicable versions. In those rare instances where Laurel used square brackets in the original text I have replaced them with {round brackets}. I use ellipses (...) to indicate deleted text, except at the beginning or end of an excerpt where deleted text is left unmarked. Minor corrections to spelling or grammar are left unmarked, as are my own contributions of such errors. The source of the text is cited at the end in round parentheses, by submitter’s name, date of the LoAR, and page number of the LoAR. Those texts excepted from a cover letter are cited by “CL” and the date of the cover letter.

There are several instances where members of the College of Arms are mentioned by their heraldic title. The individuals holding these titles during this period are:

Green Crown: Owen ap Morgan
Palimpsest (Talan Gwynek before June 1996, Rouland Carre thereafter)
Baron Bruce: Baron Bruce Draconarius of Mistholme, former Laurel King of Arms
Pelican: Talan Gwynek
Ensign: Cateline de la Mor
Harpy: Tangwystl verch Morgant Glasfryn
Black Dove: Colm Dubh
Silver Crescent: Allison MacDermot
Albion: Juhana Maununpoika Kivisuo

I wish to thank those who have helped me in this endeavor, in particular Da’ud ibn Auda and Zenobia Naphtali for their constructive advice.

In service,
Rouland Carre
