Baronial offices are, for the most part, administrative roles within the SCA.
These offices have duties to the Barony of Black Diamond specific to their roles. Many of the offices also have reporting or other duties to the Kingdom of Atlantia’s corresponding offices. For example, the knight’s marshal of Black Diamond is responsible for reporting and sending on records of waivers and similar paperwork to Atlantia’s earl marshal.
Some general information about the baronial offices, their duties, and who currently holds the office can be found on the office-specific pages of this site. For more detailed and complete information, please refer to the Society’s main web site page on documents and policies at http://www.sca.org/docs/index.html and refer to the governing documents.
