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.

Unto the populace comes greetings from the office of the kingdom seneschal.

The ideal candidate should be organized, able to manage deadlines, be an effective communicator, and able to work with local group seneschals to help coordinate merchant requirements related to taxes in effected states. Any interested candidates must have a valid membership and be able to pass the SCA background check for consideration. Please send letters of interest or questions directly to Seneschal@calontir.org. Deadline for applicants is October 10, 2016.

Call for Crown Tournament Letters of Intent

Part of being a responsible Crown is ensuring the smooth transition from one reign to the next. To that end We are setting forth these requirements for those who would wish to compete in Our Crown list in Lonely Tower this October. Please provide your letter of intent to Us and Our seneschal by September 24th, 2016. You may present them at an event or send an electronic copy to both Falcon-Crown@calontir.org and Seneschal@calontir.org.

We encourage everyone who meets the criteria below to participate. Being Crown of Calontir does take time and effort, but the experience brings more joy than we could have imagined. You must be willing to serve the Kingdom in this fashion, but not necessarily wishing to with all your being. Taking part in Crown Tournament is a privilege that more people should take advantage of. At no other time can you participate in the selection of your next Sovereign. And who knows, it might be you!

Our requirements for both the combatant and the consort are as follows:

  • Per kingdom law, you must be familiar with kingdom law, and swear an oath that you are. Please read it.
  • It is vital that the Crown be able to work together to accomplish great things. Please provide an example of some project that you have worked on together and how you managed it. It needn’t be an SCA project, just an indication that you can deal with each other in somewhat stressful situations.
  • The Crown makes many decisions that affect the entire Kingdom. To show that you have some knowledge of the breadth and depth of Calontir, please provide a list of the events that both of you have attended (together or separately) in the last 12 months.
  • Individually, please provide your reasoning for selecting that person to fight for/to carry your favor. What makes them special in your eyes.
  • For Our Seneschal, please provide copies of your proof of membership, which should last through the end of your potential reign. (Should your current membership end before your reign would, you will be required to renew it immediately after winning Crown Tournament)
  • Also for Our Seneschal, please provide proof of residence within Calontir for the past year, or indication that you have been “treaty-ed in” for at least that long. A driver’s license will usually provide this.

We look forward to a wonderful tournament, and hope that everyone will join Us, either on the field or not.
