  1. These rules shall have precedence as set out in section I.A of the Corpora of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. At all times mundane law has precedence over any and all rules of the SCA.
  2. As per section II of the Laws of the Kingdom of Lochac, temporary changes may be made to these rules by proclamation of the Crown as set out in section II of the Laws of the Kingdom of Lochac, which can be found at the following URL:
  3. Permanent changes to Lochac standards, conventions and canon may only be made using the following procedure, and shall only come into effect after all of the following steps are complete:
    1. The change must be proclaimed by the Crown at an official event; and
    2. Notification of the changes to the standards, conventions or canon will be distributed to all group rapier marshals; and
    3. The Rapier Combat Handbook (this document) will be updated to include the approved changes; and
    4. Notification of the changes will be published in Pegasus.
  4. The only exception to the procedure outlined above shall be in the case of mundane law changes contradicting these rules. Mundane law always has precedence over internal SCA rules and in the event of a change to mundane law contradicting it shall become effective immediately and this book will be updated as soon as possible.
  5. The procedure for requesting changes to these rules is as follows:
    1. Discuss proposed changes with your Group Rapier Marshal.
    2. Discuss proposed changes with the Lochac Kingdom Rapier Marshal.
    3. On the Kingdom Rapier Marshal’s approval, necessary experimentation, testing and documentation, including experimental and test results and risk-assessment of the impact of the change, will be undertaken and reported to the Kingdom Rapier Marshal.
    4. If the Kingdom Rapier Marshal agrees to the proposed changes, they will forward them to the Kingdom Earl Marshal and also seek approval from the Society Rapier Marshal as necessary.
  6. Typographical corrections and minor changes clarifying wording of a rule, that do not change the substance or intent of a rule, may be made by the Kingdom Rapier Marshal, Kingdom Earl Marshal or their Deputy for Combat Laws only, without going through the processes set out above.
