The An Tir Handbook, 3rd Edition, May XXXIII/1998
The Royal Archer is a Lesser Kingdom Officer under the administration
of the Earl Marshal. The responsibilities of the Royal Archer are to
encourage the development of period archery; to maintain, publish,
and enforce the rules for target archery and for period missile
weapons; and to maintain, publish and enforce standards for combat
archery and missile combat.
- Principality and Regional Archers
- The Principality Royal Archers and Regional Archers are responsible
for encouraging missile combat and target archery-related activities
in their area of responsibility. They are to promote these activities
where there are no lights and target archers and to further the skills
of the lights and target archers who are already participating.
- Branch Archers
- Branch Chief Archers are responsible for ensuring that missile combat
and target archery activities occur safely in their branch. A Branch
Chief Archer must be, at minimum, a warranted junior light marshal
since if Light Combat activities occur in the branch they must have
a deputy who is so qualified. It is also highly recommended that all
branch archers also be at least an apprentice in both the heavy and
rapier marshalates as well so that they can properly marshal wars.
Branch archers are responsible for making sure that scores shot in
their branch are turned in to the appropriate person within 30 days
after they are shot.
