From what I have read 'Parted' is an older term that has been left out in the more modern times. Thou I could leave it out I like the older style, so i may need to modify some more of the blazon to fit the older style i am still researching the proper terminology.

Yep, that's fine of course. Good job on the heraldry so far! I'm really liking it.

That's an elaborate coat of arms...I like it, Sir Jason.  The most original looking one I've seen thus far, barring Sir Edward's, of which I've not ever seen its like.  ;)

What's funny is that mine is pretty typical in SCA terms, from what I understand. Dragons and swords are very common, and people love to put swords on bends. It's the combination of the two and the ankh that helped get it through in SCA registration.

Its the ankh...that's it.  Egyptian symbol, it'll always throw them off the scent.  I think its cool.  And you know I have very little experience with the SCA...so you got me.  lol

Yep, you never see ankhs in historical arms, but the SCA permits it. And I've always thought it was a cool symbol, and I've used it as a symbol for my own chivalry since I was 13, so I felt compelled to include it. I do have to defend it occasionally when people question my use of it. :)

I'll bet...but that's part of the fun, no?  Get them talking about it.
