Here is a brief introduction to the SCA I wrote up from the point of view of a member involved locally in the Barony of Lions Gate.

Welcome to Wade's Corner of the SCA World!

In the Society for Creative Anachronism I am known as Lord Wade Anderson of Many Places.

There are links to many pages of my own creation from here. Many you might find are still to be created or are under construction. I hope that there will be enough vitality that you will find new things here fairly frequently. There also will be links to pages by other people and organizations for which I take no credit nor responsibilty.

SCA ArmsThe Society for Creative Anachronism Inc. (SCA) is a Medieval Recreation Society that is international in scope. The SCA started in Berkley California over 35 years ago as a theme party and people thought the idea interesting enough to continue on. It is still going strong with over 25,000 paying members world wide and perhaps 3 times that who are actively involved.

Kingdom of An Tir ArmsThe Kingdom of An Tir consists of the Canadian Yukon and Northwest Territories; the Provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan; and the American States of Washington, Oregon, and the Northern portion of Idaho. Kingdoms in the SCA are ruled by a King and Queen who are chosen at tournaments of arms. In An Tir these happen twice a year.

Principality of Tir Righ ArmsThe Principality of Tir Righ encompasses most of British Columbia West of the Rockies and the Northern Edge of Washington adjacent to British Columbia. Principalities in the SCA are a part of a Kingdom and are ruled by a Prince and Princess who swear fealtiy to the King and Queen. Like the King and Queen they are chosen at tournaments of arms. In Tir Righ we have two such tournaments a year.

Barony of Lions Gate ArmsThe Barony of Lions Gate shares the low lands of the Fraser Valley, and Greater Vancouver Regional District with the Shires of Eisenmarche, Lionsdale, and Shittemwoode. Shittemwoode lies immediately south of the Canada-US Boundry. Baronies are run by a Baron and Baroness. Unlike the Crown and Coronet they are not chosen by tournament. Instead they are chosen by the will of the people in agreement with the King and Queen. They are chosen less frequently than the rulers of the Kingdom and the Principality. Typically every two or so years, though there are exceptions.

Clan Mac Andrew Wolf and Drum BadgeClan MacAndrew is a moderately large household with its roots in Lions Gate and members and associates in a number of branches. The household is a household of service and many members have been and are officers at different levels of the SCA. Members are active in nearly all facets of the SCA. Households are governed by their own internal rules. Often they are headed by the people who founded them. Sometimes the leadership never changes hands, othertimes it changes frequently. It all depends on the household and the purpose behind it.
