    The PS of Roesone at various places presents both versions. Which is the prefered arms of Roesone.

    All the little arms on the PS cover appear as provinces. Clicking the link to Category: Domain: Roesone will show the provinces, so all of that imagery is employed.

    How about:

    A lady's diamond shield instead of the kite shield?

    I was referring to its modern flag, not its arms (which I didn't know, but thank you)...

    That would be suitable for the Baroness' personal arms, whatever they might be, but the realm of Roesone would always be the shield.

    Usually, she'll impale her arms on her husband's. Whoever that might be.

    To quote what I said on http://www.birthright.net/brwiki/ind...k:Roesone2.png
    I haven't read the PS of Roesone but I would presume that the large arms in the top righthand corner are the personal arms of the baron/baroness, since 1) they are larger than all others and 2) the regent should be the only one who is allowed to place black hearts (a heraldic pun on hart=stag) on their arms in the realm, except under exceptional circumstances (e.g. showing allegiance to the crown with their approval).

    Hmm... this image_talk might actually go into the wiki, not the forum. I'll try it just to make sure.
    Yes, normally Ladies might use lozenges rather than shields and use their Lord's arms impaled on their father's as their own arms, but if you are regent I suspect you are the one who can set the rules. Especially if there isn't a College of Arms across Anuire/Cerilia, just heraldic traditions from the empire.

    Why not make the full black stag the arms and the couped stag as the symbol/informal insignia for use among the populace/armies?

    Simpler arms are always better, particularly for heraldic arrangements. The ornamental, full-colour shield could be her personal arms or for special occasions etc.

    I like the black hart in the 'fancy' shield more than the eerie one on the yellow shield.

    Perhaps the colours could be the hart standing on all fours facing out (like on the fancy shield) but with a monotone background.

    The 'simple' one just has the tongue sticking out and that gaping eye... it follows me around the room and suggests madness...
