Combat Engine Rules 

There are a series of rules which govern Siege in the SCA Combat, the highest level being the Society Siege Rules which apply to all engines, structures, and crew everywhere on the SCA Combat Field. Below them are the Atlantian Siege Rules which only apply to engines, structures, and crew operating in the Kingdom of Atlantia.  At this time Atlantia uses the SCA Rules without modification.
The SCA rules can be viewed at the Society Siege Website.
