We have decided to reschedule the Panther Vale 3rd Quarter Business meeting. As of right now, our October 11th date is in direct conflict with the second Court of the Eastern Consules, Tindal and Alberic. Therefore, we will be postponing it until October 25th, to be held from 4-6pm. It will occur virtually via Zoom. As we get closer to the event, the link will be provided.

During this meeting, we will be electing officers for the following positions: Chatelaine, Herald, Knight Marshal, and Exchequer. According to Shire Bylaws, “Eligible resident members may, but are not required to, submit notice of interest for any open positions to the Shire Seneschal. Resident members may declare their candidacy for any open office from the floor.” If you cannot make it to the meeting, but are interested in running for an office, you must let the seneschal know via email no later than 48 hours before the election.

The following are the descriptions for the officer positions that are currently up for election.


The Chatelaine welcomes new members to the Shire and answers their questions. They also are responsible for Gold Key, which provides loaner garb and gear to new and prospective members. The Chatelaine is also responsible for organizing and/or delegating the organizing of demos and other promotional events to recruit new members.


The Exchequer is the Shire’s treasurer. They are responsible for the oversight of all assets of the Shire, which includes both monetary and non-monetary items, including shire gear.


The Herald helps people research their personas, names, and coat of arms. They can also act as the Master of Ceremonies or announcer at events.

Knight Marshal

Our Knight Marshal oversees the safety of all combat activities in the Shire.

If you have any questions, please reach out to the seneschal.
