#Precedents:-Definition:Definition:[edit]

March 2002 - dispayed and guardant by default:[edit]

"The reremouse is both displayed and guardant by default. Since this reremouse is displayed but has its head turned to dexter, its posture has been explicitly blazoned for clarity." [2002 LoAR]


#Precedents:-Registerability:Registerability:[edit]

(Restricted, Reserved, SFPP, OOP)

September 2003 - natural sleeping posture unregisterable:[edit]

The reremouse is hanging upside down and has its wings wrapped around its body in a natural sleeping posture. This posture is not registerable by previous precedent: "The bat was not dormant//, but was rather in its natural sleeping posture. We know of no examples of this posture in period heraldic depictions of bats, and for good reason: this posture eliminates any identifiable aspects of the bat. Therefore the device violates VIII.4.c, Natural Depiction: ... //Excessively natural designs include those that depict animate objects in unheraldic postures ... and VIII.3, Armorial Identifiability" August 2000 LoAR & September 2003 LoAR

October 2002 - inverted SFPP:[edit]

"Bats inverted have been explicitly allowed in the SCA in the past, as long as they are identifiable" "We will accordingly consider a bat (displayed) inverted to be a step from period practice ("a weirdness") unless documentation is provided for bats inverted in period heraldry." [2002 LoAR]
