'Word' from the Chaimberlain ~ "Oy! I has the stuffs!"

Autocrats, Demo Admins, and Officers: organizing an event? Want to save money in your budget by checking out something Event Stewards past invested their event budget in and save yours for other awesome event endeavors? Waste not, want not. Avail yourself of this resource!

FAQ's: How Can I Check Out Castlemere Paraphernalia? <Click Here!>
  • How do I know I can check stuff out?
    Call/text the chamberlain advising you've got approval from the Seneschal. Without it, I won't be able to release anything.

    EVENT STEWARDS: Please plan to sign out and pick up anything you require for your event no less than 2 weeks prior to your event date. If you wait untill the last minute and I'm out of town, you'll feel silly...

  • How do I know what we have?
    For security purposes, there is no online repository. However, feel free to text/call me with specific questions. Happy to work out a time that is convenient for you to come and review resources first hand for sign out.

  • What do you mean, 'Sign out?'
    Anyone who's looking to check out an asset from our inventory will need to sign, stating you'll be accountable for it until you sign it back in again. Your signature is required to assume and release that responsibility.

  • I'm a veteran and already know what I want. Can you just bring it to a meeting or the event?
    Apologies, but no. For perspective, the more people and/or vehicles the inventory goes through, the more likely it is for things to become damaged, lost, or forgotten. We're all responsible adults but Scadians are often by nature passionate forget-me... "-Squirrel!"s. As servants of our Barony, a clean hand off for inventory integrity and upkeep, return-form filing, and condition review (everything eventually ...retires ;) is a necessary procedure.

  • Can't I just send it home with you?
    I wouldn't. If I break it, you buy it. Better to deliver it yourself and see it signed in without any "nu-uh/uh-huh" finger-pointing nonsense. When the next noble goes to sign for it and wonders what feral beast rent it asunder, you'd be accountable for it's condition, so would sayeth the check out sheet. For your own protection, inventory consistency, and the security of the legacy of 'stuff' hording every good Barony needs to put on a good show, the Chamberlain's office requires a doorstep-to-doorstep check out/check in system. I.e., when it's safe again in the 'Castlemere Room', you can sign it back in and you'll be golden.

May seem complicated but I promise it's easier than it seems. I'm at your convenience. Call me if you have a question and leave me a message. I'll call you back and we'll make a plan. Good luck in your event!! Castlemere is behind you and rooting for your/our success.

Glory Awaits!
