Roundels and Gouttes
A quick reference by Lord Madog Hir of Aire Faucon
Roundels and gouttes have distinct terms that can be used for each tincture. While usage was inconsistent within period texts, these are the terms most commonly used in SCA blazon.
* Names for gouttes in period are inconsistent—Parker lists several variant spellings and variant names.
* Semy of gouts is called goutty. We have used the term guttee, but not since 1979. Goutté has not been used since 1984, but is discouraged, as it can be confused with the singular Goutte.
* In historical usage, gouttes are seldom seen singly.
