We are the Brotherhood. We are Indiana's premiere Western Martial Arts group, offering training, competition, and sparring unlike that found almost anywhere else. We offer training in various historical styles and doctrines of medieval armored and unarmored combat.

Our unit is based in the southern half of Constellation. All are welcome to come to our practices to learn and to train with us. If they are found worthy then they may be offered membership within our ranks. Members within the Brotherhood train in our martial art so that each individual fighter may grow in their skills as a warrior.

Many of our members also compete in tournaments held at SCA events across the country. However our primary focus as a unit is melee combat. In the grand melee events where kings and warlords field armies in battles that can range from 50 to 2,000 combatants the Brotherhood fights with an effectiveness the likes of which is rarely seen in SCA units, having turned the course of major engagements and battles on numerous occasions. To achieve this we train our members both on and off the field in tactics and strategy to attain a degree of professionalism and skill on the melee field equal to that of any other team that competes at a national level.

The Brotherhood is normally led by a council of three paladins, however presently one seat is vacant. Former paladins are known as elders.

Any who wish membership in the Brotherhood and to seek the grail must simply petition a paladin, who may unilaterally grant the first rank of membership- neophyte. After sufficient time as a neophyte members may be taken into the order as full members in one of two categories. Those who focus on fighting are caled ritterbruden and may wear a black hood decorated with a white grail. Those who focus on service are called confrere and may wear a white hood decorated with a black grail.
