Greetings and Welcome!
Hospitaller: Lady Talia di'Grazia di'Amadore
Greetings and welcome to all Newcomers from the Barony of Loch Soilleir. In my office of hospitaller, I am pleased to offer you the hospitality of our Barony and any assistance you might need as you begin playing in the Society for Creative Anachronism. If you have questions, please ask. If you have a particular interest, art, combat style, or historical era you wish to explore, I will try to introduce you to other members who are experienced in those subjects.
We have excellent resources in Loch Soilleir, both actual persons and literature collections belonging to said persons who can provide you with advice, references, and resources. Members also make efforts to provide practical help in such areas as sewing your first medieval outfits (referred to as garb in the SCA), and to provide mentoring in whatever fighting, art, or science related interests you might have.
I am happy to help with questions in regards to the culture, purpose, or whatever oddities particular to the SCA itself you may want to understand. Even if I don’t know the answer myself, I’m happy to bring your questions to our populace for answers.
Please feel free to email me at Taliagracesca@hotmail.com with any questions about the SCA, the Kingdom of Ansteorra, or Loch Soilleir, as well as with any interests you might have.
Our next gathering is TBD
Basic Loch Information
The Barony of Loch Soilleir (in Clear Lake, TX) is located in the Coastal Region of the Stellar Kingdom of Ansteorra, which encompasses most of Texas and Oklahoma. We are a part of the Society for Creative Anachronism, a group that seeks to creatively recreate the arts and skills of the Middle Ages (600-1600 AD) in the modern world.
We are located in the Clear Lake area of Houston and include Friendswood, Galveston, Pearland, Angleton, Lake Jackson and the rest of the surrounding area.
- If you live in and around Beaumont, Port Arthur, and Orange then you live in Barony Bordermarch.
- If you live in North Houston, than you live in the Shire of Gate's Edge.
- If you live in Southwest Houston, in the Fort Bend and beyond area, then you live in the Canton of Westgate.
- And if you live anywhere else in Houston, than you live in the Barony of Stargate.
But no matter where you live, you can play with all of us!
The members of our society recreate those times in many different ways. Some research clothing and textiles; some research pottery; some study calligraphy and scribal arts. some of our members fight in either the Chivalric Style (swords, shields, maces, polearms) or the Rapier style (rapier, sidesword, epee, etc.). If you are interested in any of the above - or anything else! - please email the Hospitaller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
