Offices

The admin side of our Society has many volunteers, in numerous roles. Most offices require periodic reporting to regional or kingdom superiors. Kingdom officers in turn report to their Society equivalents.

These pages provide the forms, handbooks and guidance for local and regional officers.

  • Seneschal is the ‘president’ of a branch, responsible for ensuring the kingdom runs according to both local real-world laws, and the Society’s own laws and customs.

Charter groups

Drachenwald is home to several groups which hold charters of the Crown, as guilds and schools. While they have the patronage of the Crown, the groups define their own ranks and entry requirements, and bestow their own recognitions for gaining skills.

Bestowed peers

The ‘bestowed peerages’ refer to those peerages which come from the hand of the king and queen. These are honours recognised across the Society.
