Flag Bearer Idea
« on: Mar 10, 2017, 01:47 AM »
I recently had an idea for a sort of back 'accessory'. Is there anything that states you can't have a clan banner or flag that attaches to your backplate, with the flag hanging just over your shoulder?

Forgive the Warcraft picture, but something along these lines.



Maybe with this modified mythosaur skull. If I were to do it, It'd likely be red skull on black, or red skull on gray.



I've got some ideas as to how I could attach and detach it, and this is definitely not something I plan to do until after OM, but I just wanted to run it by y'all and see if it was 1) Practical, and 2) Acceptable.

The same kind of flag was used by samurai armies in the Sengoku era, mounted to the backs of individual soldiers, and it's called a sashimono.  I've got a sashimono of my clan's logo that I'm wearing in the St Patrick's parade tomorrow.  A while back there was someone else who had a sashimono on his kit, but I can't recall who, only that it looked cool.

There's nothing in the CRLs that forbids it, only the possibility of getting dinged on the quality clause.  I keep mine around as a temporary addition for specific events like parades.

Following, too.  Might be an idea I use for any parades we do. 
I wouldn't OM app with it, but as an optional accessory, it should be good to troop with (with Ruus'alor approval).

Gonna follow this. I'm incredibly interested in seeing where this goes.

Thanks all for the show of support for the idea. I do have a couple things on the To Do List before this, including making a, er... backplate. I'll definitely start posting a WIP for it here if / when I start this, though.
