Welcome to heraldry.  Here's your accordion.

Please realize that there are substantial differences between SCA
heraldry and real-world heraldry, so don't be alarmed when you notice
a discrepancy.

There aren't any such rules in SCA heraldry.  Achievements of arms --
supporters, mantling, crest, compartment, motto, helm, all the stuff
that's called "heraldic fru-fru" (that is a technical heraldic term,
used only by professionally trained stunt heralds on a closed course.
Do not use at home) -- is not regulated by Laurel.

Some kingdoms have various regulations on some or all of those.  If
you have questions aboutanyspecific kingdoms, we may be able to say
what the regs are.

For the instant case, Ansteorra,
has the Ansteorran achievement registration form, from which you can
deduce who has the right to what.

crest, motto, no supporters, no coronet of rank" de Lincolia
