Highlights from around the Known World.
How was your week? The SCA community’s week was AMAZING again! Lots of virtual coronations, courts and courses. Let’s see what the Kingdoms have been up to!
From the Kingdom of Caid….
LIVE from CAID – Duke John The Bearkiller / Baroness Finella Harper
This week, the President of the SCA, Duke John the Bearkiller, joins the show and the Bard of Caid, Baroness Finella Harper, debuts a new song! #SCAatHome
From the Kingdom of Ealdormere….
Signora Ines de Freitas of the Kingdom of Ealdormere reads a poem written for Sir Baldric Leeman’s vigil, September 2010. It speaks to a tourney she had seen him fight in and to his day life outside of the SCA as a man of the military.
From the Kingdom of the Middle…
Though we may be in isolation, Midrealm’s Dragon Army continues to train. Numerous members of the populace took advantage of the fantastic weather to hone their archery skills and make arrows. Draco Invictus! Photo credit: Jesse Weber.

We hope everyone is staying safe and finding ways to entertain
yourselves, friends and families.
This week we are giving you a look at a big project we have been working
on over the past few years that many of you may have some connection to.
We were fortunate to be able to buy the timber frame from the Crossroads
site at Yass where many Rowany Festivals were held. This has become the
main structure of our house and we are rebuilding with techniques and
materials that are thousands of years old and common throughout the
medieval period. While we must also meet modern building and safety
standards, and include modern comforts our intention is to keep the
whole build and resulting house sustainable, natural, low impact and
within a pretty tight budget.
Other than a handful of licensed trades we need to engage for safety and
legal requirements, we are doing all of the work by hand with the help
of some amazing friends and family.
We are happy to answer any questions you have around the build and the
methods and materials we are using and hope you enjoy a peek at our
little corner of the world.

For everyone …
Anyone up for bingo?
How many have you done?
Thanks to the Barony of the Steppes in the Kingdom of Ansteorra for this! #scaathome #mysca
Can You Map the Known World?
Our Known World keeps on growing with Kingdoms being born of great endeavours and that means we need to undertake the time old activity of cartography, redrawing the borders of the Known World to reflect our newest Kingdom, Avacal.
Given that the Society has so many talented cartographers within our game who may be looking for a way to #SCAatHome, we thought a competition to draw the Known World was in order. The winner will receive a prize (details to be forthcoming) and honour and renown across all the Kingdoms of the SCA.
The Competition will run from 29 March 2020 to 28 April 2020.
The winner will be announced on 1 May 2020 as we’d like to start the A.S LV (55) off with a bang.
The artist will retain all rights to the map but allow use by the Society for Creative Anachronism (basically we’d like to borrow it on occasion). All usage will be credited.
Samples, as well as completed maps, will be accepted.
Preferred format eps or ai.
1 layer per kingdom to allow for maximum usage.
Keep all typography to separate layers as well.
If your file is larger than 4mb please contact email@example.com to ensure it will be received through our servers.
The winner will be selected by the Board of Directors
Entries can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org#mysca
Well, that’s it for this week! What are you doing to pass the time? Check-in with all your #SCAatHome friends and family!
Have a great week everyone!
