A Hospitaller is an officer who acts as a kind of liason between the SCA and the modern world. They help introduce new participants into the SCA by not only introducing them to experienced members, but also by teaching them about SCA and Kingdom traditions, customs and rules, and helping new participants fit in. Hospitallers teach both formal and informal classes for new participants and have a wealth of resources that they make available, such as websites, pamphlets, handouts and SCA publications. The Gold Key Deputy has clothing and equipment available for loan.

One of the duties of the hospitaller office is to run demonstrations. A demonstration, or “Demo”, is an organized presentation of information on medieval topics, SCA activities or both, to the public. A demo can be an educational effort designed to teach the public about the middle ages, a display of the SCA’s activities designed to recruit new membership, or both.
