courtesy and honor. Let's not encourage it, shall we? BTW, we ask that
you not use the "N" word. It's offensive and unnecessary. Be an
authenticity enthusiast with pride.
The SCA got its start some 40 odd years ago as a themed costume party.
(If you're at all interested in our early history,
http://history.westkingdom.org/ is worth exploring.) We attract all
kinds, from fantasy/SF fans to history lovers. Inevitably we have
grown and changed over the years and there are members of the Society
who do some incredibly in-depth portrayals of their chosen personae
and periods. There are also the just-for-fun crowd - and a whole
spectrum between. It allows for flexibility, personal growth and
exploration of a long timeline and a variety of cultures.
Welcome to the list. Be sure to take a look at the Links and Files
sections at our home page.
