The Quarterly Report Form
This form is the backbone of the Meridian Marshallate reporting structure. It provides the Office of the Earl Marshal of Meridies with timely information regarding the state of martial activities within your group. It is due on the following dates:
First Quarter: 15 February
Second Quarter: 15 May
Third Quarter: 15 August
Fourth Quarter: 15 November
Any report received after the appropriate date will be considered late. Thereafter, we will make one attempt (and one attempt only) to contact you or your group seneschal to obtain the report. Any report not received by the twenty-fifth of the month in which it was due (i.e., 10 days late) will be considered "missing" and will lead to the immediate suspension of martial activities within your group. By the way, suspension of martial activities means all martial activities covered by the Earl Marshal's office, Any Knight Marshal who misses two reports of any kind in a row will probably be removed from office and have their fighting privileges suspended. When you submit your report electronically the appropriate reporting deputy will send you a reply. If you do not receive a reply from said deputy within 48 hours please contact the clerk of the office or myself to find out if they are on vacation or at a war or if there is some other issue. It is on you to make sure the report is received on time.
The report is not complete without the roster. Also, please list any special occurrences that have happened in your group, whether at fighter practices, tournaments, or demos. By "special occurrences" I mean any "near-misses" (see below), "problem children," notable equipment failures, or dangerous tactics. In short, please comment on the state of fighting in your group in some detail.
