Citadel Newcomer Class Schedule

Class #1 – Overview and Introduction to the SCA      Monday, June 17, 2019 6:00pm

This class will introduce the newcomer to the various items of heraldry and awards in the Society and more specifically to the Kingdom and Barony in which we reside. Persona development will be explained and how it, and heraldry, is extremely useful to those in the Society.

Also discussed will be the creation and status of “dependents” (a term I use) – squires, provosts (students), men-at-arms, apprentices & protégées (students).
Other questions addressed will include – what is a Peerage and how is it attained? How does one become “the Crown”? Why do the Royals get special treatment? These questions and those like them will be discussed during this meeting.
