Over the last several months I have been working on updates to the Thrown Weapons Rules, and they have now been completed. Here are some of the major changes, but a good read through is highly suggested.
Closed toed shoes are no longer required.
Spears have only been added to the Royal Round part of the rules and are only for those who wish to do it…. So, NOT a requirement.
Sling ammunition/targets has been further defined.
Plumbata has been added to the rules.
ATL ATL has been removed from the thrown weapons rules, as it has been moved to archery at the Society level.
A Thrower’s highest rank achieved will be permanent regardless of the age of the thrower or current average.
Overall, they are not drastic, but do include the formal addition of Plumbata and Sling to Thrown Weapons, and the transition of Atlatl over to Archery.
Please note that those of you with Atlatl warrants issued through thrown weapons will need to contact the Kingdom Archer General to discuss carrying them over. This is not an automatic transition.
Kingdom rules reflecting these changes are in the works.
Letters of Interest for Kingdom TW Marshall
While the plague may have robbed us of some of our time together, my term still comes to a close at the end of this year. As such, all those who would have a desire to serve this Kingdom as Thrown Weapons Marshal are asked to submit a letter of interest at this time.
The position oversees and promotes all thrown weapons activities within the Kingdom as well as our compliance with Society Thrown Weapons policies. The position also supports Thrown Weapons on the Pennsic range and will run (or appoint someone to run) those activities at Pennsic 50.
The normal time commitment for this position is an hour or so per week and does require some travel within the Kingdom. During Pennsic, expect to spend 4 to 8 hours per day on the range.
You should include your experience in thrown weapons and the SCA, what things you would like to change or simply improve upon in thrown weapons, and any other relevant information you feel would allow us to make an informed decision.
Letters should be sent to Their Majesties (firstname.lastname@example.org) (email@example.com), the Earl Marshal (firstname.lastname@example.org) and myself (email@example.com).
The office typically transitions at Kingdom 12th Night.
It has been my pleasure to serve in this capacity, and I look forward to the continued growth with in our little community.
In service to Æthelmearc and Thrown Weapons,
Maestro Antonio de Luna
