Combat Archery


Black Diamond has a relatively large and active group of combat archers. Using specialized arrows or bolts and bows or crossbows with strictly-enforced limits on strength, combat archers are often a pivotal force on any battlefield.

For those interested in combat archery, it is encouraged to visit Atlantia's combat rules page at . Combat archers are permitted to practice at the Blacksburg archery practice. See the Baronial Calendar for more information on this practice.


Marshals are safety officers in the Society, responsible for understanding the rules and regulations dealing with their particular martial activity and making sure that all such rules are followed. These rules include weapon and armor standards as well as what actions are and are not allowed on the field. If there is ever confusion about the rules, a marshal for that discipline is a good place to start asking questions.

Black Diamond currently has no combat archery marshals. If you're interested in becoming one, please contact the knight's marshal at
