I am stating that a territorial group may not favor any one time period, culture, or geographical area over any others within our mission statement. Royalty may conduct their courts as though they
were from a specific time period and culture: their doing so adds to the ambiance. Feasts may reflect specific times and cultures; events (tourneys, etc.) may do so likewise-also to our benefit.
To my mind the most valuable benefit that a household brings to the SCA is its customary focus on specific times and cultures, allowing a more in-depth exploration of that time and culture-a focus that is quite inappropriate for a territorial group-which must welcome equally all members from any covered times and cultures.
