Introduction and Welcome
We are a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), an international organization dedicated to researching and recreating pre-17th Century European history. We are located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
The Barony of Borealis is part of the Kingdom of Avacal, which is part of the world-wide SCA organization.
A Word from our Baron and Baroness
Unto the great people of Borealis we send warmest greetings.
We would like to welcome you to our Barony. We have many events and activities you are most certainly welcome to participate in, try out, and test you skills.
Heavy fighters, rapier, archery, arts and sciences, and bardic are just some of the activities you can experience within the SCA. We have specialty research groups, crafting, embroidery, costume makers, leather workers, all with a distinctively medieval flavour. Just like the good old days, many years of experience that are just willing to be shared.
If you would like to roll back a few centuries and join us, or just want to meet our players, then we suggest coming to one of our monthly tavern meetings. We even have medieval clothing in our Gold Key clothing collection for you to borrow so you can fit right in.
We look forward to meeting you, whether to do battle on the fields with our enemies or simply to enjoy the warm winds of time.
