Anyone is welcome to join all of any of the groups listed.  Some of  the groups are with the approval of the moderator and some are not.  These are independent discussion lists and are to be treated as such.  These links very from general interest to a specific interest. 

General Interest and Announcements


The oak stands alone, along a road in a place long ago cleared for farming. The tree holds court here on a rise where two old roads cross. You figure that this tree was a bit more than a sapling when the Romans built this road, long years ago. Off to one side, the strange human-made bee hives, apiaries, hum and mutter as the bees come and go to the clover fields beyond. Beyond the fields of clover lie fields of reaped grain, gathered up into golden stacks. At the horizon is a smallish keep, perhaps the dwelling of a minor Lord or Duke. Directly under the tree, tucked up near the trunk, is a largish stone building. Sunlight splashes off the slate roof and a small wisp of smoke rises through the chimney and through a gap in the branches. The path to the door is worn cobble stone and dirt. The door itself is a slab of dark wood, bound with iron. Overhead, a sign, the newest item here displays a bottle and a hive.

For people who live in Illinois and are interested in the Middle Ages. It functions as a combination message board, discussion group, information center and general hang-out.

The Village Green of the Midlands

Here the SCAdian folk of the Midlands may post broadsides to promote their practices and events or they may poll the populace on matters of import. The village elders do not condone any for-profit commercial enterprises operating here.

Ayreton Web Site

Electronic home of Ayreton, the greater Chicagoland area SCA Co-operative. We are a part of the Midlands region and the Middle Kingdom.
