My-Space forum for SCA Newcomers

Shara of Starwood has created a My-Space forum to help newcomers adjust to life in the SCA. SCA Big Brothers / Big Sisters for Newcomers is a "place to discuss anything pertaining to the SCA."

On the website, Shara writes:

I am Shara of Starwood,...aka Lady Asa of the Wood,.....a Norse-Celtic woodcarver living and working on Fishamble street in 10/11th century Dubhlinn. My mate is Hastar the Silent,...a Norse Blacksmith and fighter,... We have been in the Sca since 1976 and 1982 (I'm the latter) That gives us a combined total of 58 years of Sca experience. (But we were 'new' once,....and still remember,...)

other places for SCA newcomers

There is a newcomer forum on LiveJournal as well.

I am a member of this community, and although the traffic is on the light side, all community members are welcome to reply when a query is posted, and some of the discussions have been quite enlightening. My favorite was the one about shoes!
