The Rules of the List are a document governing armoured combat activity within the SCA. These serve as the overall foundation of armoured combat across all Kingdoms; many Kingdoms publish supplemental combat rules which further amplify and define the rules.
The phrase “Rules of the List” is often used as a shorthand for the entire corpus of combat rules, including the Conventions of Combat, weapon- and armour standards; however each Kingdom's maintains their own Conventions of Combat and armour standards are technically separate documents from the Rules of the List.
The Rules of the Lists can be found in the SCA Marshal's Handbook, Section II-A
Applications of the Rules of the Lists can be found in the SCA Marshal's Handbook, Section II-B
