Poster: "Jeffrey C. Sussman" <JSussman@erols.com>

Greetings Unto Lord Rabah!, What follows is my announcement for the October
Acorn.

Greetings and Felicitations unto Atlantia from the Earl Marshal!

Duke Galmr Ingolfsson has been selected as the next Earl Marshal.  See his
listing under Lieutenant Marshals if you need to contact him.  The official
office turn over will probably be at 12th night.

The following event reports have not been submitted:
5/17/98	Northern Regional War Practice	Bright Hills
5/23/98	Emerald Joust	Caer Mear
6/5/98	Pre-Pennsic War Academy	Marinus
6/12/98	Baronial Hunt IV	Spiaggia Levantina/B. Hills
6/20/98	Southern Region War Practice	Cyddlain Downs
7/11/98	Baronial Birthday	Caer Mear
7/17/98	Assessment Battles	Black Diamond


Changes to the Atlantian Rules on Combat, Effective November 1st:

4. E. Thrusts to the head, outside of the face, are not telling blows and
need not be counted.

28. Deputy Knight Marshals will assist the knight marshal in his
responsibilities.

33. 	G.	Before each bout, the head marshal must ask the combatants if they
have had their armor inspected and the weapons that they are currently using
inspected.  If either weapons or armor have not been inspected the marshal
must complete the inspections before starting the bout.

H.	Before each bout, the head marshal should check the weapons being used.
At the beginning of the day this should be a complete inspection.  Later
bouts will require only a cursory check.

40. General:
B. Visitors to Atlantia may participate at Atlantian events if they go over
the Atlantian rules with an Atlantian marshal before they compete.

C. Fighters with a valid authorization from another kingdom who move into
Atlantia, may trade in for an Atlantian authorization card by
1) Read the Atlantian Rules on Combat
2) Provide a minister of lists with the necessary information and get an
authorization form.
3) Have their authorization form signed by a warranted marshal who will
answer any questions the combatant has about the Atlantian rules.

In the near future we will be considering eliminating weapons specific
authorizations.  At this point, Id ask all fighters with opinions on this
topic to talk to their knight marshals about the pros and cons of this idea.

Yours in Service to Atlantia
Richard
