Group Description

This group is for those in the SCA who are devoted to the attainment of historical authenticity (in costume, food, music, persona-play, general ambiance, etc.). How many times has your experience at an event been ruined by a Coke can, or talk of computers? Or perhaps you're the kind of person who cringes whenever someone walks by in un-documentable modern pseudo-Arab garb, or sings a folk song obviously 18th or even 19th c. in origin (or even a filk of a Broadway song), or serves up a stew with potatoes and tomatoes. Have you ever been told by someone that period things are boring? Do you secretly not quite believe that "The SCA is not the Society for Compulsive Authenticity?" This group is to prove we're not alone. Please enjoy this list as a forum for helping one another grow in endeavors towards historical accuracy and persona development!

We do not expect (or want) anyone to leave behind medical or other necessary apparatus (such as glasses) in the pursuit of authenticity. We do not expect anyone to spend their last $5 on linen for a veil (use it for lunch, linen can wait). We each want to achieve our own level of to the best of our ability and encourage others to do so as well. We espouse the opinion that real life comes first.
