The Chroniclers

Chroniclers are responsible for producing newsletters which keep S.C.A. members informed about events and activities within the area that the newsletter services and which educate their readers about aspects of the middle ages. No branch below the Kingdom level may have paid advertising in their newsletter.

The Kingdom Chronicler

The Kingdom Chronicler is in charge of all Society publications within the realm. The Chronicler is ultimately responsible for the regular publication of the Kingdom newsletter The Crier. Either directly or through deputies, the Kingdom Chronicler is responsible for: taking Curia minutes; publishing the updated Laws of An Tir; encouraging the publication of the results of research by any subject of the Crown; facilitating communication within the Kingdom; maintaining a record of events and other matters which may be of historical interest; and reviewing the newsletters within the Kingdom to make sure that they comply with Society policy, don't violate copyright laws, and present a favorable view of the Society.

It is encouraged that complimentary copies also be sent to the Grete Boke and Regional or Principality Seneschals and Chroniclers.
