Arts & Sciences Officer
THL Edith of Arbroath

Arts and Sciences are just what they sound like. The line between what is an “art” and what is a “science” is often blurred, hence one person organizes workshops in both areas, and helps people find others to help them in specific areas of interest.

Chatelaine (Newcomers officer)
THL Monique Marie Sauniere

The Chatelaine is the person who helps Newcomers. If you are newly joining the SCA, or just visiting an event because the pavilions caught your eye as you drove past the park, this is the person who will answer your questions. And if they can’t, they’ll help you find someone who can. Write here for help and information.

Cirstene Fojtik

The Constable is responsible for Lost and Found items, and helps with any crowd control and area perimeter management issues.


THL Elle Wynn of Essex

Exchequer is in charge of the monies raised by the group. This can be money people pay to attend events or money donated by the good of one’s heart. He is responsible for paying money out to cover the legitimate expenses of the group (such as paying for the site to have an event at).


THL Damien von Baden (Sable Fret Cornet)

The Heralds make announcements at court, introduces fights on the field, and helps you develop a name and device. In the SCA, we use names that could have existed in Medieval or Renaissance times and create devices that can be used to identify us by picture, much like a coat of arms.

List Officer

THL Matlens Litovka

The Lists Officer is the person who organizes the individual fights during the course of a tourney by determining who fights whom and tracking the winners and losers of each bout.


Armored Combat Marshal
Baron Griffith Von Bremen

The Marshal is in charge of running fighting activities at events. Often they will also run a practice so that people can fight on a regular basis somewhere close to home. If she/he doesn’t run a practice, she/he will know who does and where to find it. She/He may not participate in all forms of fighting recognized in the SCA, but if you want to learn something she/he is not familiar with, she/he can help you find someone who is. Fighting in the SCA falls into 4 major categories: Armored combat (using rattan swords, armour and shields), Rapier (fencing), Archery / Thrown Weapons, and Equestrian.
