Campaign of the Month: August 2016
Oath of Crows
Argent, a oak proper
The Cellydon heraldry is a representation of ancient symbols tightly tied to the Cellydon house. The shield is a silver shield, with a green tree spread out.
Cellydon heraldry has been around since the Battle of Carlion, where Cadwallon was given a shield for his family as a reward for capturing the Irish cheiftan Niall's banner on the battlefield. The shield is inherited by the eldest son always, and cannot be modified in anyway by siblings, children or kin.
If you ask the Cellydon's the shield is nothing new, although heraldry is. The oak has been a symbol in the family for as lon as anyone can remember, maybe as far back as before the roman even came to Britain. Nowaday a large oak standing near Tisseburi hill is tightly connected to the shield, but the symbol seems a lot older than the oak could possibly be. The tree also is said to represent the familiy's roots, strength and growth. There are rumours that the tree has deeper meanings, tied to secrets deep in the forest. But no one in the family knows.
