An interesting idea. Though realize that in every kingdom I've been in
(ok, only 2) no marshals carried any kind of warrant card.
>>> The Middle Kingdom has had cards for heavy Marshals for many years. ( Since the early 90's at least) It's
part of the standard authorization card. Archery Marshals - since 2000.
Plus, I'm unsure how each Kingdom does it. But in Atlantia, it would be
rather difficult, as warrants can expire due to membership lapsing, or
your training class lapsing (which you must retake every few years).
And that's for each marshallate type, most of us are cross-trained in
multiple disciplines, and your expiration in each varies from when you
took the class in that one.
So you'd either have a bevvy of cards, one per discipline. Or you'd
end up having your one marshallate card end up changing and needing to
be sent back out constantly.
>>> The Middle uses check boxes next to the respective authorization /discipline for heavy, rapier,
equestrian, and the Youth sections. There is also a separate box for the various Marshallate auths which cover
all the activity areas. This is all on one card. The cards are routinely replaced on a 2 year cycle through
the Kingdom Clerk of the Roster. Copy the card, proof of membership, ID, send along an SASE and it gets sent
All Marshals are expected to keep themselves up to date on rule changes, equipment changes, etc. within the
discipline(s) they hold an authorization to Marshal.
