It started when the latest attempt to get the local Shires together into a Barony flared to life. Shires are smaller SCA groups and Baronies are larger and have more pomp and circumstance. For an introduction to the SCA, go here.
I am quite hopeful that it will work out and, in the interests of keeping things light, started a campaign (just in fun!) for Tierce to be Baron. Everyone seems to be having fun with it, so we’re going to continue until we get a Baron and Baroness!
