Heraldic Symbols of the Kingdom's neighbors


Kingmaker


I'm looking for ideas of how the heraldic symbols of the neighbors of the PC's kingdom should look like:

- Brevoy: already defined, a two-headed red dragon on a field of silver and gold.

- Restov: probably something with a sword...

- Mivon: maybe derived from Restov's symbol, only more villainous.

- Drelev: no idea.

- Pitax: grapes or other fruits would fit nicely, maybe on a green field.

Have you any ideas or opinions?

Restov, not being a nobility, should probably not have heraldry per se. I mean, they'll have a huge banner with a recognizable design, but they'll call it something else. Opening calling it a heraldric symbol might be sign of trying to schism from the throne.

Drelev used to be a vassal of one of the Issian houses. I forget which one (or if it's even specified) but it should be a derivative of that.

Pitax: I somehow see an overturned cup with coins rolling out of it, but that's just me. I could imagine it originally being somewhat crude or basic, and then lately Irovetti has "reinvigorated" the symbol, releasing a more stylized one.


I forgot one:

-Varnhold: ???


Greetings, fellow travelers.

I haven't found anything on Pathfinder Wiki concerning heraldry, but maybe there is something in the Guide to the River Kingdoms by Paizo? Unfortunately, I am away from my books, but could have a look at the guide tonight.

Shouldn't Restov's/Rostland's heraldic banner have some similarity to Taldor's (divided shield blue/green with a white lion under a golden crown). At least Sirian First (later named Sirian Aldori) was a noble from that nation (same goes for the founders of Issia). A sword would definitely fit as well, though.

Pitax needs a crown or something in my opinion. Grapes and a cup are also ringing my bell.

Varnhold - founded by a band of mercenaries under the lead of one Maegar Varn...
Could be anything, I would go for a line of hills/mountains, a tower and crown with a blue or green background.

Hm, I am somehow fixed on the crown as a symbol.

Anyway, I will check my Guide to the River Kingdoms tonight and state a short message.

Ok, so there are no heraldic issues discussed in the GttRK. The only thing I found about Mivon was, that they do not have a common heraldic symbol, but rather every house has its own colours (doesn't make it easier though).
Also, the swordlords having fled to Mivon when Choral struck, still worry about their flight, having develloped the feeling that the very existance of Brevoy is an insult to them.
That makes it hard for me to see them bearing a symbol derived from Restov.
Concerning Pitax - a (silver) fox might also fit the bill. The "founder" of Pitax was a man being nick-named Silver Fox and Irovetti is silver-tongued and cunning as well.
