Unto the mighty Kingdom of Aethelmearc do Timothy and Gabrielle send warmest greetings,

In a few short weeks it will be Pennsic. The forces of the East and the Middle have marshalled their troops, and have decided to split our kingdom amongst themselves. Many amongst us have done what we could to rally others to our cause, and we have allies of our own who will stand by our side as we struggle to remain free. Atlantia, Ealdormere, Northshields, Ansteorra, Caid, The Tuchux, House Clovenshield and others will support us.

We are eternally grateful for all their assistance, but even with their help, we will have our hands full. These are our lands. It is time for us to step up to the plate. We have been amazed at the efforts of people throughout our kingdom stepping up during these last few months. Fighters and fencers have been traveling throughout the kingdom making muster after muster. People are authorizing in record numbers. Our ranks are swelling with new fighters, fencers and combat archers. Shires, Baronies and Households are having workshops (here’s looking at you Sable Maul) to equip more of our troops for the war.

It is deeply inspiring. With their Highnesses at our side, we will do everything in our power to try and rally our kingdom to victory. His Majesty will be in armor, or under mask for every battle. Her Majesty will be joining the fencers for their battles, and both of us will be shooting war points early each and every morning. If you want to meet us at the range, it is our intent to be at the range every day at 8:00AM. Several of our marshals have agreed to open the range early so that we may have the opportunity to shoot alongside our troops. It may turn out that the populous archery shoots decide the eventual outcome of the war. If you can, make the effort to not just shoot once or twice at the war, but pick up your bow once or twice before the war, and attend your local archery practice. Knock the rust off.

Aethelmearc, we are inspired by your efforts, and look to return the favor during this push for war.

Timothy and Gabrielle

Curia to be held Sunday, July 19, 2015 in St. Swithin's Bog
The First Curia of Their Majesties, Timothy and Gabrielle, will be held at St. Swithin's Bog Throwback Three Day, on Sunday, July 19, 2015, 9 am to 11 am, at the New Germany Grove- 1635 New Germany Rd Summerhill, Pa 15958.

Additional information and Agenda will be found here on this website.

Greetings to the populace from Your Heirs!
We are very much looking forward to Our reign this winter and would like to borrow an idea from Our current King and Queen to have Our Champions decided at individual events dedicated to the community in which the champion is chosen. We will need your help to make this happen. While there is still room on the Kingdom calendar We would encourage groups to submit events that can support the Champions competitions.

New heirs!
Congratulations to our new heirs! Imperatore Destinatus of AEthelmearc Magnus Tindal and Etain ingen Dalaig

Polypropylene swords
As of March 12th, 2015 polypropylene swords are legal weapons for Rattan combat in the Kingdom of Aethelmearc with the below restrictions:

1) The polypropylene rod must be 1.25” in diameter.
2) All polypropylene swords must have the length of the blade completely wrapped in strapping tape.
3) The polypropylene must be one of the below two listed types. Any other type (such as Tecafine PP or other random co-polymer) are explicitly banned for use in combat within Aethelmearc under any circumstances. Type A: co-polymer 7823, also known as pro-fax 7823 from McMaster Carr Type B: “SCA ROD” from Brast Industries. (Brast does not have a part # for this, the “sca rod” designation identifies the rod required, as per Barry Ellison.) Brast Industrial solutions can be reached at 502-585-5171 or 800-292-2396.

My thanks to everyone who helped with the testing and tracking of the test results. Especially to Duke Malcolm MacEoghainn, my experiemental deputy for the above wording.
Tessa, KEM
