Áindle and Aliyah
Baron and Baroness of North Woods
Within these pages you can find information about who we are, what we are doing, and some of the opportunities to help if you are willing and able.
On Thursday, February 15, 2018, we received a phone call from His Royal Majesty Cellach, King of the Middle Kingdom, informing us of the Crown's decision to appoint us as the next Baron and Baroness of North Woods. We both, Áindle and Aliyah, would like to thank the populace of North Woods for their participation in the Baronial poll and for their support. We are stunned, humbled, honored, and excited to have been selected to serve in this capacity. We look forward to the celebrations and challenges to come and are touched and grateful for all the congratulations and support we have received.
Our current plans are to attend Baronial Border War 34,

There are many that have contributed to the preparation for the Baronial Investiture. Some individuals we would like to thank include:
Thank you to TRM Cellach and Vukasin for putting their trust in us by bestowing upon us the honor of being Baron & Baroness of NorthWoods and allowing the Investiture to take place in NorthWoods, in our home Canton, at our event! This made what would have been a very special day anywhere even more incredible.
Baron Max and Baroness Janet Scheltema (Gwenllyen TheMinstrel) for their service and for setting the bar high.
Mistress Anthoinette Martel for being our designer and seamstress and making our garb.
Mistress Elizabeth Burton (Jervisa Wainwright) for Aliyah’s gorgeous beaded veil and for working the Scribal table at afternoon court.
Mistress Lisa N Paul Phillips (Alaina N Alexander Blackram) for the Baronial and Canton banners.
Lord Octavio (Jay Warner) for Aindle’s belt.
THL Lucia Greenstone for taking over Smelly Science.
Foresters Godhit and Aeffe for working the Scribal table at afternoon court.
Lord Phil Swift (Alonso Mano Negro) for taking our portrait and our Baronial Family Portrait (which covers three generations, but is unfortunately missing our earlier ancestors).
The Barons and Baronesses who were in attendance and who were so generous in their welcome, advice, and support.
Lady Siri for The Roaring Wastrels for their incredible talent and willingness to share beautiful music.
Lord Morgan Enstarr for the much needed Moroccan coffee.
Lord Vigfuss Mjoksiglandi for being willing to do whatever needed to be done.
The members of the Canton of Wealdlake who made this event possible through their support and hard work.
And last but not least, everyone who came to It Takes My Child to Raze a Village and who continue to make the Dream a reality.
Thank you! Thank you!
If we have missed anyone, please know that we are very grateful. The oversight is unintentional and we are profoundly sorry. We are still quite overwhelmed.
We are part of the SCA.The Society for Creative Anachronism is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe. Our “Known World” consists of 20 kingdoms, with over 30,000 members residing in countries around the world. Members, dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, attend events which feature tournaments, royal courts, feasts, dancing, various classes & workshops, and more. -
We are located in the Middle Kingdom.The Midrealm, is the third oldest kingdom in the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). Properly known as the Middle Kingdom, it consists of Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, part of Kentucky, a nip of Iowa, and a bit of Ontario. -
The Barony of North Woods has several smaller groups called Cantons. We are members of the Canton of WealdLake. For fuller version of events in our area, see the WealdLake calendar at WealdLake Calendar
The Kingdom of the Middle is made of many baronies and Shires.
We are Baron and Baroness of the Barony of North Woods.
Greetings unto all the Cantons of North Woods!
After long thought and deliberation Baron Aindle and I have decided the following regarding the selection of our Baronial Champions (Adult and Youth).
- We want to choose at least one champion at an event in each canton.
- We intend to observe and take note of skill, honor, presense and participation over time.
- We may hold a tournament to highlight and showcase skill, but the tournament winner will not automatically become a Champion or Baronial Brigade Member.
The Baronial Brigade is a new group we would like to establish. Adults and youth in who we see Champion potential will be invited to join throughout the year. In the event that a Champion is not present at an event and we find ourselves in need of said Champion, a Brigade member may be asked to serve as Champion for the day.
Yours in service,
