Office of the Kingdom Earl Marshal

The Earl Marshal needs to maintain their membership in the SCA for the duration of their term. They need to file quarterly reports with the Society. Those are the only true requirements for the position - but as with most things the bare minimum is not enough to be truly successful. The office oversees all martial activities in the Middle Kingdom - depending on how you want to group the activities it is about 7 disciplines (armored, rapier, target archery, thrown weapons, equestrian, youth armored, youth rapier). Several of those have sub-disciplines. Managing each area can take some time and effort. The Earl Marshal does not need to be the subject matter expert on each area (that is the job for the deputies for each discipline), but having a working knowledge of each area is helpful. Being a warranted marshal in several areas is also helpful - but is not mandatory.
  • The Earl Marshal may need to tell folks why something they wish to do is against the rules or is a poor idea. They need to do this in a polite fashion.
  • The Earl Marshal serves on Curia and so should be familiar with areas outside of martial activities.
  • The Earl Marshal needs to be prepared to help manage Pennsic marshaling duties. The Earl Marshal of the Midrealm will be the head marshal for Pennsic in 2025. If they are unable to attend they may appoint someone to fulfill the role in their stead.
  • The Earl Marshal needs to foster a good relationship with other Earls Marshal, especially with the counterpart in the East.
  • As Earl Marshal you may have to sanction people that you know and like if they do something dangerous.
Some experience with databases and websites has been really helpful, but this is not at all mandatory. Please send letters of interest/intent to [email protected]
Position duties include reporting to the Kingdom Earl Marshal and Society Rapier marshal, issuing sanctions if needed, administering marshal tests and entering new marshals into any/all databases, working with Pennsic staff, and continuously helping the rapier program grow.

You will be receiving communications frequently and need to be able to respond to them in a timely manner.
