From Their Highnesses, September AS LIII, Regarding Crown Tourney

Unto the Noble Populace of the Middle Kingdom, do We, Prince A’Kos and Princess Bella, send our greetings!

As many of our Warriors move hearth and kin to the battlefield of Pennsic to make War, We know Our Parents, the Dragon King, Alric, and Our Dread Mother, Queen Katherine, grow tired and will soon be ready to slumber in Their Winter Years, and We will be ascending the Dragon Thrones. Our minds turn to Our own Heirs. Who, of the Sons and Daughters of the Dragon, will heed the call to Serve?

We welcome those who wish to Honor their Inspiration, to attend and fight in Our Crown Tournament October 20th, 2018 in Our Beautiful Marche of Three Towers. Please submit your letters of intention by email to Us () and the Middle Kingdom Seneschal () by our Coronation day, September 29th, 2018. We do require both Combatant and Consort to hold at least an AoA level award, and for non-Peers of the Realm, please have a letter from a Peer who knows you and can attest to your Dedication and Courtesy, include this letter in your submission packet, please. Include in your email a copy of your state ID and proof of your valid SCA membership through the end of your potential reign. Do not take this endeavor lightly; know, and understand, you may win. Look to your Consort and discuss this matter fully, before you make your submission. We expect, nay, demand Honorable and Chivalrous behavior and fighting on, and off, the tournament field. (more…)

Updated Hate Speech Language

At the Board of Directors July 2018 meeting, the following addition to Corpora was approved and is to be considered effective immediately.

Corpora Article X, Grievances and Sanctions, A. General, Add Section 4:   Hate Speech

Hate speech is not tolerated in the Society. Hate speech is speech or symbols that offend, threaten, or insult individuals or groups, based on race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability or other traits. Such symbols and speech have no essential part of any discussion of ideas and are of so little value to the Society that any benefit that may be derived from them is clearly outweighed by the harm caused. The use by any participant in the Society may result in possible sanctions up to and including revocation of membership and denial of participation.

Please report any possible instances of hate speech to your Kingdom Seneschal, the Society Seneschal or the President of the SCA immediately. For more information about hate speech and the reporting of same, please refer to the Society Seneschal’s Handbook.

Corpora will be updated shortly.

Comments are strongly encouraged and can be sent to:

From the Kingdom Seneschal, August, AS LIII

Greetings to the Populace of the Middle Kingdom!

I am in the midst of a policy review and over the next several weeks will be asking for feedback on a variety of issues. Expect to see survey and feedback links on the Seneschal’s page on the Midrealm website (http://www.midrealm.org/). Your input is requested and needed. Topics include officer term limits, required officers, baronial polling, and kingdom event bids. Curia looks forward to your feedback.

Thank you to all of you who volunteer to make all the demos, events, newsletters and webpages, art and practices happen every day. Nothing happens without the efforts of everyone involved.

Thank you.
Caitriona

From the Kingdom Minister of Arts and Sciences, January AS LII

Greetings from Sofya Chyudskaya Smolyanina to the good people of our kingdom! As we wrap up one year and look ahead to the next, here are many exciting new developments I wish to share with you.

Here are some main points about the changes: (more…)
