    127Amaryllis le Pouke. Device. Gyronny of three arrondi purpure, argent and sable.
    Blazoned on the Letter of Intent as Schneckendreipass, that is a German blazon that may or may not be modern, and translates roughly as "three-parted snail." Woodward suggests an English blazon of tierced in gyron gyronnant. This field division was first registered in SCA heraldry in September 1971, blazoned as gyronny of three arrondi, with the following comment:
    ...
    This device is returned for conflict with the device of Albrechtus Vagus, Per pall arrondi sable, azure and argent. As both devices have argent in the sinister section of the field, there is not a substantial change of tincture under SENA A5F2. There is therefore only one DC for change in tincture of half the field.

    DecemberJun 2002 - Palls, Shakeforks, and Couped Ordinaries
    Thanks to the College for providing extensive commentary on the question of whether we should give difference between palls and shakeforks. This was a complicated issue, hampered by a lack of period evidence: all commenters noted that the pall and its variants were very uncommon in period in any place in Europe. The commentary showed a fairly strong consensus on how the SCA should address these issues. We therefore rule as follows:
    PRECEDENT: As a general rule, ordinaries couped will be given a CD from ordinaries throughout. This general rule does not apply to specific ordinaries for which evidence has been presented that the ordinary and its couped variant were used interchangeably in period. In accordance with RfS X.4.e, if a particular ordinary throughout and its couped variant are both found in period armory, but were not considered to be "separate [charges] in period", no difference will be granted between them. If the ordinary throughout, or its couped variant, were not found in period armory, then it will only "be considered different in type if its shape in normal depiction is significantly different" from the period form of the ordinary.
    PRECEDENT: Because of the period evidence presented concerning pall variants and in light of RfS X.4.e, no difference will be given between the following four pall variants: the pall (throughout), the pall couped, the shakefork, and the pallium. Any of these four charges will be given a CD from a pall with a decidedly different end treatment, such as a pall fleury or a pall potent.
    There are three standard versions of the pall in heraldic texts: the pall (a throughout ordinary), the shakefork (couped with pointed ends at all three arms), and the pallium(throughout in chief but couped in some fashion in base).
    The shakefork is the least frequently found of the forms mentioned in heraldic texts, and appears to be confined to the Scottish family of Cunningham in period. Because the Cunninghams are the only family so far shown in period to have used shakeforks, the College felt that the history of their armory had particular weight in determining difference for these charges, more so than would be usual for a single family. The Cunningham arms are depicted in sources throughout our period using both the pall and the shakefork, demonstrating that the charges were not "separate in period" from each other. The only period example that has so far been presented of a pall couped is also an emblazon of the Cunningham family arms (found in the Armorial de Berry). As a result, the pall couped is not considered "separate in period" from the standard pall or shakefork.
    The pallium is most frequently used by ecclesiastical organizations, where it functions as the heraldic representation of an ecclesiastical vestment. Evidence was presented by the College showing that the treatment of the basemost leg of a pallium could be done in a number of different ways without deriving any heraldic difference from the change. The basemost leg of a pallium is generally couped (plain), but it is sometimes couped with a fringed end, and sometimes couped and pointed like the basemost leg of a shakefork. This indicates that the exact treatment of the basemost arm of this charge is not heraldically significant. The concensus of the College was that the pallium should not be given difference from the pall or those charges which are not "separate in period" from a pall: the shakefork and the pall couped. If the pallium resembles the pall in all respects except for the treatment of the basemost (and least visually significant) arm, and the treatment of the basemost arm is not heraldically significant, then the pallium is effectively heraldically equivalent to a pall. Thus, the pallium is not entitled to a CD from a pall, shakefork or pall couped.
    No evidence has been presented that a pall with complex ends, such as fleury, would be considered heraldically interchangeable in period with a pall, shakefork, pallium or pall couped. We will therefore continue to give difference between a pall with complex ends and palls, shakeforks, palliums and palls couped. A pall with complex ends would be at most one step from period practice, and would likely just be a very uncommon, but standard sort of, variant of an uncommon ordinary.
