Pennsic. Pennsic is as was wrtten before, an event
that every serious SCA'er should make at least once in
their lives. It is amazing-- imagine if you will
being able to walk all day down dust (or mud) covered
streets and not see the "real world" or the same thing
twice. Imagine hundreds of merchants selling
everything from fabric to armor to harps to capuccino
(yeah, yeah). Imagine if you plan it right not leaving
the current middle ages for a week and a half. Imagine
the drumming comming from 10,000 people-- every night.
Imagine meeting SCA'ers from all over the world,
playing the game in the way they do at home and all of
the beautiful differences you find. The singing.
Wow... all those songs from all the different
Yes, there are some problems with Pennsic. There are
some people who come and think it is a fairy or
vampire fest-- or get too drunk for even SCA events
and cause problems. These are things that happen when
you have that many people.
I attended Pennsic 24 (this year is 32) and I know
that much has changed. Hopefully someone who has been
more recently will add to my ramblings.
