Armoured Combat - Fighters Handbook

Armoured Combat Editing Notes

Combat Authorisation Reqs

  • Suggest upping minimum age for banner bearers to 16. War is an armoured combat activity, and no armoured combatant may be under 16. It walks like a duck, sounds like a duck...

Armour requirement

  • get a diagram of the parts of the hand and wrist which must be armoured.

Melee Weapon standards

  • "Restraints are not required on great weapons or spears used single-handed, or on single-handed back-up weapons less than 45 centimetres in length." Society rules don't include a max length for back-up single-handed weapons not requiring lanyards. Is this a specifically Lochac thing?
  • incorporate changes from rulings in notes

Missile Weapon Standards

  • Define rigid and non-rigid quivers (use rigid material standards?)

Changes to rules

  • also need to update change log page when changes are incorporated
  • changes to the rules which would affect our exemptions should also include an update to those exemptions from Society Earl Marshal.

Siege Handbook pdf

Editing notes - Siege

Siege Engines and Structures

  • Pick what metric conversion is being used for imperial measurements - 1/2 inch = 12 or 13mm?
  • Change log notes - Adjustment of measurement units, conversion to NZ/Aus English standard spelling

Rapier Combat Handbook

Rapier Editing notes

Remove reference to indemnities

  • these are covered by membership and event and practice attendance and are not specific to combat.

Rapier - Introduction

  • Rules change process described should match Armoured Combat requirements - announcement in court, publication in Pegasus etc.
  • Update web link to new location when changed

Rapier - Canon

  • Consider separating sections
  1. General Information
  2. Behaviour On The Field
  3. Use of Weapons and Parrying Devices
  4. Acknowledgement of Blows
  5. Melee/War Combat
  • Metric conversion of imperial units

Rapier - Equipment Specifications

  • Metric conversion of imperial units - Armoured Combat uses 6mm for 1/4 inch

Rapier - Authorisations

  • We're keeping indemnities for minors for 21 years?? Under what legislation are we entitled to do that?

Australian Charities and Not for Profit Commission Act 2012 (Cth)
A registered entity must retain financial and operational records.
Records must be written in English or readily accessible and easily convertible into English.
Part 3-2 s 55-5
7 years after the completion of the transactions, operations or acts covered by the records.
Privacy Act 1988 (Cth)
Private sector organisations that are required to comply with the Privacy Act must take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify personal information if:
  • it is no longer needed for any purpose for which the information may be used or disclosed under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth); and
  • the organisation is not legally required to retain the information.
Australian Privacy Principle 11.2
When the personal information is no longer needed for any purpose for which it may be used or disclosed under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) and the organisation is not legally required to retain the information.

Rapier - Administration

  • What are SCA Lochac (NZ & AUS) requirements for working with youth?
  • Chiropracter as health professional?
  • Quarter Courts don't exist anymore - use grievance procedure as per Kingdom Law
