Dairmaid, et. al,
Sorry for not responding sooner.  I was out of pocket last week and since it was a personal sanity trip rather than business related I explicitly left behind all methods of being contacted.

This is for everyone:
As far as the armorial graphics I create.  Once I have created the image I will run it past the registered device holder to be certain that the device looks the way they like it.   After I have approval of the registered owner I release all copyright on the graphic to the registered device holder with the following reservations:  1.  I retain the perogative to utilize the graphic on any projects which I may decide to use it on.  Current or future. [Banner, Domesday Book, etc.]  <Unless it's a surprise like "The Book" I'll generally let you know I'm using it anyway.>  2.  The Barony of Northkeep is given permission to use the graphic on _official_ materials. (ie.: website, awards banners, etc.)  The Barony may not transfer that permission to a third party without the explicit permission of the registered holder of the device.

How's that?

-mka.    Hugh Niewoehner
