    Eagerly anticipating Jaleela's article on heraldry, but proceeding anyway on arms. I'm interested in keeping a variety of simple arms for each nation. Inspired by the striped pants on the cover of Havens, I've thought that striped arms might be a very Brecht thing to do. I'll be putting up arms in Danigau for the provinces.

    Working on it. Taking a little longer than I thought.

    Personally, I've found inspiration for Brecht heraldry in the arms of the Hanseatic League and late medeival/reneisance Nothern Europe. There is so much else in common...

    I went to that well as well, but so many crosses, and that wasn't gonna work. I was looking for some other very common types so everything didn't end up with a little too much personality. The stripes (barry, paly, bendy) serves that purpose nicely. See Caebstrech, Evershrüden, and Hoklep for examples in Danigau. Of course I also went for a boat, salmon, and other interesting arms too.

    Basic patterns for Rjurik heraldry:
    Gyronny, of eight and six along with the special examples of four, quarterly and per saltire. Generally no charges.
    Paly seems to be good for a nautical situation, since it recalls the viking sails.
    Lozengy, fusily, and fretty all reflect viking art.

    prefered charges, generally on a solid field
    adze, arrow, axe, spear,
    bell, bucket, buckle, horn
    bowen knot, wake knot
    bear, boar, wolf, raven, ram

    At the risk of sounding obvious, that is because the Brecht are based on the Hanseatic League and other European traders in the Mediaeval and Renaissance eras!
