Becoming a Marshal

Being a Rapier Marshal is not a rank. It is a responsibility and a commitment to furthering rapier in the Kingdom of Meridies. A marshal is expected to fulfill the duties that they have volunteered to perform. If they do not perform as expected, then their marshalate may be rescinded. There are two levels of marshals in Meridies, the Rapier Marshal and the Rapier Authorizing Marshal. Of these, the Rapier Authorizing Marshal has the most responsibilities, as only Authorizing Marshal’s may perform authorizations. All marshals must have a warrant from the Kingdom that shows what level of marshal they are.

To become a Rapier Marshal, one must:

  1. Be a resident of Meridies.
  2. Hold a Meridian Advanced Rapier Authorization.
  3. Attend a Marshaling 101 Class or request KRM to hold one.
  4. Complete the Marshal in Training form given by KRM

To become a Rapier Authorizing Marshal, one must:

  1. Be a resident of Meridies.
  2. Have served as a Rapier Marshal.
  3. Attend the Marshaling 102 Class or request KRM to hold one.
  4. Receive approval from the Kingdom Rapier Marshal.

One final note – If there is very little rapier presence in your local group, it would be your special responsibility to get things rolling. Consider becoming the Group Marshal for your area.

If you have any additional questions, please contact the Kingdom Rapier Marshal.
