Royal Archer

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.
