August 2019 Edition



From the Baron...


Unto the Populace of Selviergard,

The Barony of Selviergard welcomes and celebrates Gregor and Isabella, the new Prince and Princess of Oertha! Long live the Prince and Princess of Oertha!

We had a wonderful time at Oertha’ s Summer Coronet and Investiture as together we celebrated the reign of Cruscillus and Vicana as Prince and Princess of Oertha and witnessed the selection of Their Heirs by honorable Right of Combat. It was a weekend filled with song and joy, laughter and cheer as the entire Principality made it out and celebrated the event together as one family and a Coronet that will be remembered fondly for many years to come.

In the month of August I invite all of you to the Houston Founder’s Day celebration where we will be performing a demonstration for all to enjoy. This is an important event for us as it helps let people know about the Society for Creative Anachronism and encourages newcomers not only to the lands of the Barony of Selviergard but the Principality as a whole. I look forward to seeing you all there.

As always, if you have award recommendations please let me know. It is the pleasure and duty of the Baronage to celebrate and acknowledge those who consistently give their time, who exemplify the ideals of the society, and those who create amazing things. Help me by making award recommendations so that the glory of Selviergard and her inhabitants may be known to all.

In Service,


Baron of Selviergard,
Servant of the Crown
Tyrant of the Eagle River
