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.

A&S Deputy for Martial Studies Position Vacancy

The office of A&S Deputy for Martial Studies has been vacant since the sorrowful passing of our beloved friend, HG Sir Ostwald. I have not received any queries about it since then, but the time has come to look at filling this position.

There are no particular prerequisites of rank or achievement, but it does require a serious interest in research, re-creation, and promotion of period martial techniques, training, equipment, and materiel. It is not limited to any particular category of combat activity, the goal is to improve the quality and authenticity of our game, and includes both individual and collective martial activity. It really encompasses all of the martial field, including such diverse areas as archery, armored combat, steel combat, equestrian matters, youth combat, even the study of siege weapons, and extends to matters as diverse as task organization, orders of battle, and tactical/strategic thought for Medieval battles.

Knowledge and interest are the key things necessary, but naturally experience, prowess, and diverse authorizations would be positives. The role of the selected candidate would be as a resource and guide for those engaging in martial studies in an artisan sense, such as research in combat systems and techniques, weapons, armor, and general coordination of martial A&S activities, NOT to butt heads with the Marshallate.

If interested, please submit a narrative letter of interest to the Kingdom A&S Minister, no particular format or length, but it should contain your background, experience, and vision for the office. Submissions should be emailed to artssciences@calontir.org and must be received not later than Friday, January 26th, 2018, the decision announced shortly thereafter.

Yours in service, THL Paul Adler

Call for Letters of Intent: Arts & Sciences Master Scheduler

The Arts and Sciences Master Scheduler position will turn over at Kingdom Arts and Sciences this coming Spring. The new Master Scheduler needs to second-chair this process with Countess Branwen, the current office-holder, in order to be fully prepared to take on the entire responsibility for Queen's Prize in the Fall. The scheduler's work begins in earnest about a month before each of the two major competitions, and so will need to be ready to dive in just after Gulf Wars.

The position's chief responsibility is matching available judges, entrants, and time slots at two annual competitions, Queen's Prize in the Fall and Kingdom Arts and Sciences in the Spring. The position is a statutory deputy of the Arts and Sciences Minister, and so I will be accepting all the letters of intent to serve and selecting a candidate. There is no requirement for any particular level of rank or award for this job.

A spreadsheet application has been used for the complex task of matching judge proficiencies, entrants, and time slots. Functional knowledge of Excel or a similar spreadsheet program is therefore highly desirable. Applicants need to have reliable email/internet access and a love for organization.

Please include the following in your Letter of Intent or application letter:
1. Your full name, both modern and SCA.
2. A brief summary of your relevant modern and SCA experience, particularly with respect to arts and sciences, and a short statement on why you would like to be Master Scheduler.
3. Your knowledge and experience with Excel, comparable spreadsheet programs, and other relevant skills or experience in organizing complex activities.
Submissions should be emailed to artssciences@calontir.org. They must be received not later than Friday, January 26th, 2018, the decision announced shortly thereafter.

THL Paul Adler, Calontir Minister of Arts and Sciences.
