Welcome

Baron Donovan Ried & Baroness Yrmengerdis de Misine Welcome to youThe Barony of Allyshia. Here are the words:

Greetings, Allyshia and friends! We wish to thank our predecessors Katelinen and Kolskeggr as they begin their well-earned rest after a very long and unusual reign, not only for handling the upending of our Society with grace, but for the work they have done in recruiting and nurturing our Barony. We pledge that we will work to bring in new members and encourage arts, service, and fighting in the Barony and Kingdom, online for now and hopefully in person in the near future. We pledge to respect and consider new ideas as well as tradition, to keep Allyshia a welcoming, inclusive place where we can pursue our hobby with joy. To all in the Northern Marches, we are here to help and support you as best we can during these trying times.

The Barony of Allyshia is located in the Kingdom of the West, a part of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe. Our “Known World” consists of 20 kingdoms, with over 30,000 members residing in countries around the world.  Members, dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, attend events which feature tournaments, royal courts, feasts, dancing, various classes & workshops, and more.

New to the SCA?  Please explore the Are You New? section for more information, or contact our Chatelaine: chatelaine (at) allyshia (dot) westkingdom (dot) org
