Welcome!

The Kingdom of Calontir is a regional group within the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), an international organization dedicated to recreating aspects of the Middle Ages. If you are unfamiliar with the SCA, we would suggest starting with the newcomers section.

The region that makes up Calontir covers most of Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri and a touch of Arkansas. If you are interested in contacting the SCA within this area, take a look at the Groups and Branches list or the Calontir Map. Join us as we learn about history by making it come alive. Follow us on Facebook, or you can contact us at info@calontir.org.

Society Cut & Thrust Rules Update

Greetings from Sir Duncan Mac Torquill, Kingdom Rapier Marshall for the Kingdom of Calontir.

As most of you know the Society Rapier Marshall has published some updates to the cut and thrust rules. The rule changes include additional requirements for hand protection and will affect all of us. The rules are set to go into affect July 27, 2018 so they will be applied at Pennsic but will not be applied at this upcoming Lilies War. That being said, I encourage you to get together the equipment you plan to use to meet the new requirements so we can discuss what will work at Lilies.

For more details and clarifications, check out the Calontir Cut & Thrust page.

In Service,
Duncan

Kingdom Earl Marshal Letters of Intent

Greetings unto all the Spear-kin that this missive reaches,

As the end of my time as Kingdom Earl Marshal grows near I am starting the search for my replacement. All interested individuals should send me a letter of intent by the end of Lilies. In the letter I would ask that you include the following:
1) Why you want the job
2) At least 2 things that you would want to accomplish as KEM

I will work with TRM/TRH to arrange interviews at a time that is convenient to all and hope to have my replacement chosen a month or so after Lilies….this should allow for a proper turn over time.

Any questions/concerns can be sent to me directly

Falcon Signet Changes and Letters of Intent

The Office of the Falcon Signet needs a replacement. Mistress Elynor of Glastonbury has served long past the end of her warrant and has agreed to continue to serve until a replacement is found. At the next Kingdom Law Change, the position will be officially moved to become a deputy in the Arts and Sciences.

Letters of interest for the position of Falcon Signet should be sent by May 20, 2018 (A.S. 53) to the Kingdom Minister of Arts and Sciences, Their Majesties, Their Highnesses, and the Chancellor of RUSH.

The new Falcon Signet will work with the KMOAS to update the job description for the Falcon Signet. We hope to include all the “book arts,” such as pigments, parchment, book making and book binding, and text writing as well as traditional calligraphy, illumination, and scroll production within the purview of the Falcon Signet. Ideally, an updated Scribes Handbook, or something like it that includes all these book arts, will be produced.

The Falcon Signet will still supervise the Backlog Scrolls Clerk, and they will work closely with the Royal Scribe as needed for each Reign. The Kingdom Minister of Arts and Sciences has dreams of starting a Kingdom digital archive of original scrolls presented. The Falcon Signet should also work with the RUSH Chancellor to help ensure book arts classes are available to the people of Calontir.

The Falcon Signet is a warranted deputy, serving a two-year term. Letters of interest should include member ID, expiration date, SCA and modern name, address, phone and email. The office has no requirement of rank or award to apply. Please send letters no later than May 20!
