Greetings and welcome to the Barony of Storvik! I am the Baronial Chatelaine (or newcomer’s officer), and it is my job to answer questions, help you find resources, and otherwise help you get acquainted with the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA).
The SCA is a non-profit educational organization whose members’ research and attempt to recreate various aspects of life during the time period from 600 A.D to 1600 A.D. We try to immerse ourselves in various pursuits that existed pre-seventeenth century. Unlike many re-enactment groups, we do not “re-enact” period occurrences exactly as they happened.
The Barony of Storvik is made up of Washington DC and, in Maryland, Prince Georges County as well as parts of Montgomery County.
If you are interested in getting involved in the SCA please contact me. I also encourage you to check out the Baronial calendar for a list of weekly and monthly gatherings.
I look forward to meeting you!
Baroness Emma West – Chatelaine of Storvik

Going to Holiday Faire? Want to go to Holiday Faire but don’t have a ride? Their Excellencies have asked me to find a way to organize carpools that’s a little nicer than everybody emailing everybody else to try to sort out rideshares to events. Here’s a carpool organizing sheet for Holiday Faire, using a service called Group Carpool.
If you have space in your car, please click the “add car” button in the upper left corner of that site and mark down what part of town you’re leaving from and how many spaces you have. You’ll be emailed when someone calls dibs on one of your seats. If you want to dibs a seat, add yourself to a car or a waiting list if there isn’t a car available at the moment.

Yesterday, Baron William was hauled away in chains for grave offense caused to Their Excellencies of Ponte Alto and Baroness Sorcha went to his rescue. When she did not return by the end of Court, His Majesty consulted a Seer. As a result, Storvik has new rulers: Baron Badouin MacKenzie and Baroness Griele vanden Burgh.
