Yet More Greyhawk Heraldry

I needed to take a writing break, so in my idle moments I put together some more heraldic devices from the World of Greyhawk. As before, these are done using the superb Coat of Arms Design Studio Pro by Inkwell Ideas (there's a free demo version available on their website, but it's not at all "crippleware"), with a touch-up here and there in GIMP. They come out as .png files, so they should scale great (within reason); you should click to embiggen and then save the resulting image, if you so desire. As before, it's just a hodgepodge of nations with no real theme other than I liked the designs. So without further ado, I give you...

Fief of Ahlissa

(An interesting note about this one; for some reason Ahlissa has three cannonballs in its design. While that's not all unusual in historical Medieval heraldry, it doesn't make a lick of sense in a fantasy world where black powder isn't supposed to work...)

Town of Highfolk
 Kingdom of Keoland
 Ket
Lordship of the Isles
 Onnwal
 The Paynims
 City of Rel Astra
 Reyhu (in the Bandit Kingdoms)

Ahlissa's "cannonballs" are obviously Holy Hand Grenades.

I had noticed that three canonball design when I had to justify using blackpowder in my last campaign. But holy hand grenades? That's brilliant!

I, too, have often wondered about the coat of arms for Ahlissa. Makes me wish I had brought it up with Gary on his enworld Q&A thread when I had the chance. Sigh.
