Barony of the Middle Marches

Newcomers Information

Welcome to the SCA!

Thank you for your interest in medieval recreation! We all look forward to meeting you! The easiest way to check out the SCA is to find the closest branch to you, and attend a meeting. Don’t worry, you’ll find the SCA to be full of friendly, welcoming people from all walks of life, who will be eager to introduce you to our organization.

If you live inside the 270 outer belt of Columbus, the closest branch to you is called The Marche of Tirnewydd (tear-na-width). You can find more information here.

If you live in south-central Ohio (Southern Columbus, Circleville, Lancaster), the closest group to you is called The Shire of Mugmort. You can find more information here.

You live in anywhere in the south-east corner of Ohio, the closest branch to you is called The Shire of Dernehealde (dern-held). You can find more information here.

There are plenty of pamphlets and guides that will give you a great primer on the customs and terms that you might see and hear at your first meeting or event. You can find more information here.
