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.

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
