    Blazonry

    I was wondering if there are any blazonry expert out there? The wiki page has quite a few of the blazons listed but there are a few missing. I've tried to work them out but it's like learning a new language so I thought I'd check if there was anyone more fluent than I!

    For starters, the blazonry of the Great Kingdom, North Province & South Province would be super handy.

    Great Kingdom: Azure, a crowned sun or.

    South Province: Or, a crowned boar's head azure.

    North Province: Gules, a crowned sun or encircled by a wingless dragon(wyrm?) azure.

    Those are common basic descriptions, though the encircling dragon in the last one might be described differently (I don't recall a description for anything encircling something else). Anna has likely looked at this more than me lately, so perhaps she might add something. Also, the crowns are not usually described, as it is assumed they will match the type and material/color appropriate to the land they are for.

    Thanks Cebrion. I wasn't sure how best to describe things that were crowned.

    Is there a need to describe that the crown on South Province's boar is gold or is it always assumed that it will be that colour? Similarly, with the red tongue & white tusks. I think i read something about the term 'langued' for describing the tongue but again I'm not sure if their are assumed default colours for these things.
