The Compleatly Dressed Anachronist Post

I had planned to post about something different today, but I just had to share this blog post with you all. I thought it was really beautiful, and gives some insight to those magical moments you find sometimes within the SCA game:

  1. Yep, that's the good stuff. I have been inactive for many years, but once upon a time, I was showing a new person around a 12th Night event. I was explaining who was who and what all the different things meant--a white belt, etc. The King of the Midrealm was nearby so I pointed him out. I mentioned that he was wearing my favorite crown. Each plaque in the crown referenced things in Midrealm history. HRM Finn overheard me and came up to us, dropping the crown in my hand casually so I could show each plaque better. Yes, I knew him, but it was still unexpected and gracious to allow me to show off our treasures. I think the new person was impressed, as well. :) Fionna MacNicol, OL.

  2. What a lovely story; thank you so much for sharing. Moments like these really stick in the memory and bring the game to life in a magical way.
