Always make sure:

  • Real weapons (knives, swords, etc.) are not be drawn at an SCA event.
  • Fighting with metal weapons is not permitted at SCA events. If you want to do this, join a metal weapons group. Also note we are not talking about authorised rapier fighting with approved weaponry.
  • Follow your local mundane laws with regards to carrying weapons. This may require you to have the weapons in a secure bag or container when not at an event.
  • Be responsible and do not touch other people's weapons without permission, be they real or SCA weapons.

The only exceptions to the first rule are:

  1. In honour of the crown
  2. Displaying the blade ("Clear!" must be called before doing this to let surrounding people know what you're doing)
  3. Self defense
