Our society organizes itself at local levels based loosely on Medieval European hierarchies and naming conventions. Getting in touch with your local Branch is the best way to get involved. The main point of contact for newcomers is the Chatelaine or the local Seneschal. You’re also welcome to join the social media page for your local group and introduce yourself!
Baronies are large branches within and subject to the administration of the kingdom.

In order to be considered a Barony, it has to meet the following requirements: has at least 25 members, a set of officers acceptable to the Crown, a name and device registered with the College of Arms, consensus among the population to become a Barony and a strong record of activities in a variety of fields (E.g. arts and sciences, youth activities, martial disciplines, etc.).
