The Rules

The Governing Documents

Commonly referred to as “Corpora,” these are the documents that govern the formation and structure of the SCA as a whole. Be aware that most of the meat of the rules are contained in the policies of the various offices. Those can also be found on

East Kingdom Law
These are the rules that govern the East Kingdom, including officers, awards, and the like. As with corpora, the nitty-gritty details will be found in the policies of the officers, which can be found on

The Curia agenda
Curia is the mechanism whereby the East Kingdom updates its law. At least once per reign (every six months) there is a Curia. The agenda for each Curia is posted here by the Kingdom Seneschal.

East Kingdom Order of Precedence
Have you ever wondered if a subject of the East has a particular award? There’s a page for that! Look here for a comprehensive listing of the awards held by the subjects of the East Kingdom.

And now that you have discovered that someone doesn’t have an award that you think they should, recommend them! Remember – you don’t have to have an award to recommend someone else for it.

Barony Beyond the Mountain Order of Precedence
Do you know someone who is an asset to the Barony? Someone who ought to be recognized for their art, or their prowess, or their service locally? Or are you just curious about how many awards were given in the Barony in a certain year? Check the Order of Precedence for the Barony – searchable All The Different Ways. And if you don’t find the person you’re looking for – write them in to the Baron and Baroness!

The Pennsic War
Our annual obsession. The largest event the SCA sponsors, and its own unique culture. Don’t forget your sunscreen.

What Year is It?
The SCA keeps its own calendar, dating from the day of the First Tournament in the West Kingdom. Not only are our years counted from that day, New Year’s Day is May 1! It’s confusing even for established members. When you can’t remember what Anno Societatis (year of the society) we are in – check this handy conversion chart.
