This is very good. It reminds me of the fellow I've seen at Pennsic who's
arms are;

        per pale, or and purpure, a keyhole counterchanged

Now he insists that he always displays this on the type of shield called a
heater, and that the keyhole is often something one peeps through, thus
making his arms a per pale peep hole heater.

And then there's one of my Bros in the Midrealm who's mundane last name is
Hankey, and who's arms are a key within a hangman's noose.

and fates, but strong in will. To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield.
