A Well-Done Marshal’s Handbook

The East Kingdom’s handbook of youth combat rules is clear and succinct, but it relies on marshals picking up a bunch of additional context during their training.

By contrast, the YC Marshal’s Handbook from Æthelmearc is quite a bit longer, and includes valuable guidelines for youth training, combat techniques, and tournament structures.

Much of that additional material is relevant to youth combat marshals from any kingdom.

My thanks to Mistress Arianna of Wynthrope for her work in assembling this resource.


Greetings, all. I’ve set up this site in recent days to provide a home for information related to our local youth combat activity here in the New York City region, as well as more general commentary that might be applicable to youth combat activities throughout the Society for Creative Anachronism.

I’ve started by posting some archived photos from events over the last year, and notes I’ve previously written up for parents about how to get involved.

If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch!
