So you're new to the Society for Creative Anachronism... This can be a bit overwhelming at first, and fortunately we have friendly people who are here for you! The Shire Chatelaine is generally the primary individual here to help!

Now, you might be wondering..."What is a Chatelaine?"

The office of Chatelaine is here to:

  • Help Newcomers feel confortable in our group by introducing them to members who share the same interests, inviting them to participate in activities to encourage everyone's involvement.
  • Help Newcomers get started in the right direction by giving them information about the Kingdom and local heirarchy, help them with garb, tell them about events, newsletters, help them to chose a name and a representative time frame for their persona, and invite them to come to local meetings, for instance.

If you have questions, feel free to contact the Shire of Stormsport's Seneschal:
