- ... Is there an Oriental Section of the SCA? I am curious because I
have a friend that thought the SCA sounded kinda neat but doesn't want
to join since he is only really interested in Asian Weapons and stuff.
I told him I didn't think that the SCA covers Asian stuff but I of
course could be wrong about that. I is the Noob :p
thanks for all the help btw

Anachronism Organizational Handbook and may be found on page 9 of the

"For Society members, most of the world, and all of the centuries
prior to the 17th, can serve as a source for personal research.
However, the further you go from the core of Medieval and Renaissance
Europe, the less the environment we offer will resemble what someone
of your time and country would find natural or homelike. For example,
you can be an Asian or African guest at a European court, but you
cannot expect others to share your special interests - like any
long-term visitor in a foreign land, you are the one who will have to
adapt to the customs you find around you. Since members have free
choice of what areas they will explore, it follows that Society
branches cannot decide to specialize in a specific time and place,
since that would make it hard for members there to pursue their own
interests in other times and places."
I know a number of people with East Asian persona and (split my time
as both Jehanne de Wodeford and Saionji no Hanae).
If your friend is interested in pursing a Japanese persona,
firstname.lastname@example.org and the Tousando forum at
http://tousando.proboards18.com/ may be of interest.
