Re: [Authentic_SCA] A proposal for Authenticity
Seems like an excellent idea!
Regarding your text, I think it could be useful to name the "projects"
included (numbering or similar will do). People who take care of the
booklet project, for example, might not be the same as those with the
"make garb for gold key" project or the "petition for clarification of
As to the booklet, a few days ago Effingham (are you still here?)
appeared on the Rialto saying that he'd like to work on a re-write of
the Known World Handbook but in the past had got no answer from the
relevant people. That's a worthy cause and I bet there are also others

booklet and do away with some of the less historic "official" info in
Alternatively, the project could get started anyway and be published
independently if the SCA Inc won't take care of that (I favour
web-publishing with the option of getting paper copies at cost,

whatever I can do honorably and in spurts (spare time - what's that?).
All the best!

I'm considering doing this because my laurel is a German who was shipped to
England at a young age in an agreement for his apprenticeship to a jeweler
and painter and his wife is English all the way. I just thought it would

outfit or two. *grin*
