Official siege activity at Pennsic 48 will be limited to the Main Battlefield. In case of disputes, the Pennsic 48 Marshal-in-Charge will make the final call.


Marshals

All Siege Marshals must wear eye protection, such as protective shatterproof eye-wear or a helm. Siege marshals should wear a standard black marshal's tabard and carry a marshal's staff. If you are going to marshal in armor then wear a marshal's tabard over the armor. If wearing a helmet, a drape or other distinctive marking is required to differentiate you from a fighter on the field.

Get your engines and structures inspected at Pennsic early, so that if you have a problem you will have time to get it fixed and re-inspected. Inspection hours will close on time. Do not expect any pre-battle inspections of engines or munitions to be available.Test your engine and inspect all ammunition before you bring it to Pennsic. Check all of your gear: make sure all of your equipment, bolts, rocks, ropes, string, cables, engine, frame and wheels etc. are in good order.
