Welcome to our Kingdom!

A Missive from Their Royal Majesties of Æthelmearc:

Greetings Sylvan Æthelmearc,

We are looking forward to the events of Beer & Bacon Bash, The Festival of the Passing of Ice Dragon and The Coronation of our Heirs. We hope we will see you at these events and at regional musters as our armies prepare for war in the summer.

This last year we have been very fortunate to travel to across Æthelmearc’s vast lands as well as other Kingdoms of the Know world. It has brought us to joy to come to know so many of you. Æthelmearc’s might lies in the convictions of its people to make the dream real for all of us. Some do this on the list field, or with painstaking research, a finely crafted item, running an event, cooking feast, or many other ways that are all part of bringing reality to what we do. We have certainly experienced that in our time as King and Queen. We are really thankful for those that have helped us along our journey. We love this Kingdom and know it will be in good hands with our heirs.

Ad Glorium Æthelmearc
Gareth and Juliana,
Rex and Regina Æthelmearc

From the Society Seneschal, on Doxxing

Published February 3, 2018

To all Kingdom Seneschals,

I want you to alert all of your officers (Kingdom and local group officers)
that DOXXING (i.e. posting personal information/contact
information/political information about individuals) is a violation of the
SCA Code of Conduct and the Anti-Bullying and Harassment policy. DOXXING
is also against the law in California and a number of other jurisdictions;
furthermore, DOXXING may likewise be actionable as an Invasion of Privacy
which may result in a civil suit and money damages. Please convey to all
of your officers at both the Kingdom and local group level that any officer
or agent of the SCA found to be DOXXING is subject to termination from
their office.

Additionally, I am instructing all Kingdom Seneschals and their deputies to
obtain screen-shots of instances of DOXXING by any participant as this
cannot be tolerated.

Everyone needs to contemplate the consequences of their actions. I know
that there is a lot of anger and frustration over the events of the past
week; however, as officers and agents of the SCA, we must act in accordance
with the very foundations of this organization: courtesy, honor, chivalry
and respect. We are and should be held to a higher standard and yet, there
are allegations that at least one officer took part in DOXXING.

We have a responsibility to be leaders– to be part of a solution and not
part of the problem, even when the fog of division, discord and blame make
it hard to see what is truly important to us all. It is times like these
when we need to pull together, rally around what is good about our Society
and lead by example. Even when the world appears bereft of courtesy,
honor, chivalry and respect, we need to be an example of these virtues.

Very truly yours,

A.J. Pongratz
Vice President of Operations, SCA Inc.
Society Seneschal
