It doesn't *have* to be, of course, but it does have a
certain...completeness about it. :)

A conflict-checking hell, and I don't thank you.

> Award of the Sable Crescent
> Award of the Sable Horn
> Award of the Sable Ring (annulet or torc)

I like these! Haven't checked 'em.

I add to the pile:

Sable Horn (drinking horn: fieldless, a drinking horn sable is clear.)
Sable Boot (fieldless, a boot sable is clear. Unsure if it's a *good* period
charge, and may have reproducability issues.)
Sable Buckle (fieldless, a buckle sable. No, not a buckle AS insignia,
that's for your belt. A buckle as a badge, however.... I like.)

I looked at Sable Rowel, but alas I think there are major conflict issues. I
haven't done a thorough check yet though.

Yeah, but I kinda like the extra simplicity of "(fieldless), a widget
