pretty low with Japanese. It's only here that you'll get nitpicky
arguments about things, but that's why we're all here: to get nitpicky
arguments and refine our knowledge.
Unfortunately, that also means that you're usually going to run into
people whose only understanding of "historical" Japan is "early
modern" Japan. Most pop-culture knowledge of historical Japan is based
on Edo-period history. In Japanese history, there's a significant
break created by the Tokugawa Shogunate, and that just happens to be
right around the SCA's end-date.
In any case, it's still a lot of fun breaking trail where few SCAdians
have tread. There's lots of room for learning, incremental improvement
and bringing new things to your community and the society.

I am in search of help to locate writing on how to produce historically accurate images. From everything from the type of paper and ink, to how to make a seal, what is used as the red ink? for the seal, symbolism, etc.
