Try looking for SCA, medieval or other similiar search words as well as the specific topic you are interested in at: http://groups.yahoo.com or try: http://dir.groups.yahoo.com/dir/Entertainment___Arts/Humanities/History/By_Time_Period/Medieval_and_Renaissance/Society_for_Creative_Anachronism?show_groups=1 For a web interface for subscriptions to some SCA lists try: http://lists.ansteorra.org/lists.html 2.1.1 What other mailing lists of interest are there? There are lots of other mailing lists that may be be of interest to SCA people. Here is a listing of some of them. There are a number of different mailing list programs, each of which has their own procedure to subscribe to a list. Try sending mail to LISTSERV@<host address>, or MAJORDOMO@<host address>, or LISTPROC@<host address>, where <host address> is the part of the address for the list you're interested in that comes after the @ sign. The mail should have nothing in the subject line, and the body of the message should consist of nothing more than SUB <listname> <yourname> where <listname> is the name of the mailing list you are subscribing to (the part *before* the @ sign) and <yourname> is your name. If this isn't quite the right format for the mailing list software in use, read the error message you get in return carefully, and you should be able to figure out the right format. If this is unsuccessful, try appending -Request to the name of the list, and sending mail to that address. E.g., try to subscribe to h-costume@indra.com by sending mail to h-costume-Request@indra.com. Many of these lists are places where modern-world scholars communicate, and therefore are not places where persona is appropriate -- use your modern name.

Yes. There are several sites that contain various files of SCA information, including this file, Corpora, the Heraldic Rules for Submission, the Online Armorial, several kingdom's laws, rules for combat, and so on. Each site has a different collection of material, so you may need to investigate more than one to find what you need. 2.2.1 Archives via FTP? Contact your local system administrator to learn how to use anonymous FTP to retrieve these files. Those without FTP access should send e-mail to mail-server@rtfm.mit.edu with "send usenet/news.answers/finding-sources" in the body to find out how to do FTP by e-mail. ftp://ftp.pbm.com/pub/sca maintained by lindahl@pbm.com (Gregory Blount) 2.2.2 Archives via Gopher? Contact your local system administrator for a gopher client. gopher://heort.bsuvc.bsu.edu administered by Gwydion ap Myrddin <00mjstum@bsuvc.bsu.edu> 2.2.3 Archives via World Wide Web? Contact your local system administrator for a WWW browser. The web pages available are changing so dynamically that I don't want to attempt to keep a list up to date here. Instead, use this link, and search for other sites of interest to you from here. If you have a web page you want to make known, look at this page to find the most appropriate place to link it in. http://www.sca.org/ An SCA search engine can be found at: http://www.scahunt.com This site has nearly 400 sites signed up on a variety of topics of interest to SCA members. 2.3 Does anyone have a contact in ... One option for finding people is to look in the Rolls Ethereal. This works best if you know someone's name. Another option is to look in the Home Page Listing maintained by Ellisif Flakkari at http://sca.uwaterloo.ca/sca-people 2.4 What are the Rolls Ethereal? The Rolls Ethereal list people on the Rialto, at least name and electronic address, and often interests, location, and awards. The Rolls are maintained by Justin du Coeur <rolls@waks.org> They are available via World Wide Web at http://www.waks.org/rolls 2.5 What's this alt.sca I found? The first SCA newsgroup was named alt.sca. When the traffic grew to a respectable size, we moved to rec.org.sca because the rec hierarchy gets better distribution. alt.sca is currently defunct, but still carried at some sites. We recommend that users of alt.sca move over to rec.org.sca, and ask their system administrator to remove alt.sca from their system, to avoid future confusion. 2.6 Where can I get songs and lyrics? There are a number of sites that archive song sources. Many of these are dial-up sites, requiring the use of a modem. Please do not ask for technical help with this on the Rialto -- there are sure to be better sources of this information close to you.
