The only kudo I would like to make here is in regards to the generic charters
used by the kingdom which are on a specific paper and should be obtained from a
duly appointed kingdom representative.

Errrr. Awards in period either did not have the emblem or they had the correct
heraldic representation on the scroll. We are, of course, talking very late
period I believe. Awards were generally a legal document with entitlements and
such. They were therefor mainly just text.

I will look through my Heraldry books to check this to be sure.
