I'm preparing handouts for a module, and it would add a lot of flavor to have symbols or seals of the various political entities (e.g., Dwarves enclaves, Elorii, human nations or regions) to add in various places.

I've looked through some of the books, but can't find anything appropriate. At the top of my wish-list is a seal for Tir Betoq.

Any suggestions?

Generally political entities they don't officially have them...or at least we haven't seen them.

Milandir? Triple Dolphin. That one we have. Coryan? Falcon on a Legion Standard (or is it on an orb?).

Dovitoni family? Two pillars wrapped in grape vines. That's from an old IK module we wrote.

Val Holryn family? Tudor rose from Onara Online (though I have heard this is unofficial).

Elorii? Dwarves? .... uh, I've got nothing.

If it's just it's just for a table you are running, you might unofficially use a crystal glass for Tier Betoq (to symbolize Glass Steel) or you also just use a crown symbol to represent the King of the enclave.

Thanks for the suggestions.

This is just for a table I'm running, so either will work for the Tir Betoqi.

For Elorii I'd suggest the holy symbol of Belisarda done in wood on a steel kite shield. Maybe decorate the shield with ivy on an earthen texture -maybe not as, AFAIK, the Elorii aren't exactly "tree hugger elves" and are well represented by a wooden core protected by a high sheen steel shell with a natural element creeping about the sides.

Imo the easiest crossroads of Eloran culture are Belisarda and the need to protect themselves. They generally aren't big on power projection -the Entaran Navy probably being the notable exception- and as yet haven't invaded anything so a sword or wand wouldn't really work.

ZCaslar beat me to it (regarding the Berotar), but adding some type of water-representing sigil on their bodies, a plain tattoo, or symbol on their gear.
