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.

Come ready to fight and learn about all things fencing/rapier at the Pentamere Academy of Defense (PAoD) XIII at the same location where It Takes My Child to Raze A Village was two weeks ago. We look forward to seeing you there when we announce our new Baronial Rapier Champion!

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. -

Middle Kingdom

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 w ehave established. 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,

Baroness Aliyah
