Count Nikolai Grigorevich Petrov

Office for the Kingdom’s Newcomers Liaison.

Welcome to the Society!

Whatever the reason that brought you here—a deep love of history, interest in historical reenactment, LARPing, cosplay, Game of Thrones, HEMA or something else—we’re glad you’re here!

The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) explores an amazingly diverse collection of activities, interests and events. Whatever it is that interests you, be it iron age blacksmithing or raising silk worms or German longsword techniques, there’s someone in the SCA who would love to share their knowledge with you.

This page is a good jumping off point to learn more about the people, places and activities of our organization. Check out the helpful links below and if you ever have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me or your local Chatelaine.

And in case you’re wondering, the term Chatelaine (“SHAT-a-lane”) is a medieval title for the person who supervised the daily function of the caste and kept the keys. The SCA has adopted this title for the officer who’s tasked with welcoming newcomers and helping them get involved.

Again, welcome!

Elders and Novices Program

A program for BOTH Newcomers and Chatelaines!

The intention of Elders and Novices is to provide folks new to the SCA with a contact person to assist with acclimating to the culture and traditions of our game. The relationship between the Elder and the Novice is intended to be of a defined period, primarily informational in nature, and one desired by both the Novice and the Elder. A coordinator will assist local and regional chatelaines with matching across organizations, assisting with requests, and looking into the possibility of working interkingdom for folks on the move.

Populace Oath

I here swear fealty and do homage
To the Crown of the Middle Kingdom:
To uphold the laws and customs of the MidRealm,
And to serve where serve I might,
According to my knowledge and ability.
Thus swear I, (Your Name).
