      Just a thought about your feathers in the corners - have you considered switching which corners they sit in? Most people, I suspect, would hold a hand of cards the way your photo does, which puts the feathers in the visible corner, and might be less helpful to colourblind players than the usual symbol.

      @Carlos, I like your "Reynard" suggestion.

      @Ratesjul: good point! I think we should swap them out, as they're only relevant during set up.

      I'm late to the party but Chanticleer would be my suggestion. Coming from the Canturbury Tales (so appropriate for the time period) evocative of a rooster, often associated with song. And for the Don Bluth fan in me - a reference to the animated movie where the titular hero was also an Elvis analogue. ;)
