Welcome

The Barony of Dragonsspine is a chapter of the The Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. The SCA is a non-profit organization devoted to researching and recreating the Middle Ages in the present. Some members concentrate on the study of the European Middle Ages and Renaissance eras. Other members concentrate on the study of Middle East and Asian Cultures, with many members working to recreate the arts and skills of their chosen eras, and also explore the interaction between Europe and Asia during the periods under study.

In the "Known World of the Current Middle Ages" Dragonsspine is located within the Kingdom of the Outlands. The barony was originally established in May 1978. Our first baroness was Caitlin Caslean an Bharraigh.

In the modern world Dragonsspine is centered around Colorado Springs, and include Monument to Twin Lakes. A comprehensive list of the holdings can be found here.


We extend an invitation to all gentles to come and join us and spend some time in the current middle ages. We are home to some of the best archers, artists, fencers, and heavy fighters in the Society for the Creative Anachronism. Come join us at an event or practice to see why we are proud to be Dragonsspine.

Newcomers

We are happy to learn more about you, and your areas of interest in the SCA! Whether you are a person new to the SCA who has never attended an event, an old hat who has relocated to the lands of our fair barony, or someone who has been battling the dragons of Mundania but has finally been able to return home, we welcome you!

If you would like to contact and attend a newcomer gathering or monthly business meetings, feel free to contact Ramon De Javier, who will help you gain a foothold with the things that you are interested in.

The Barony of Dragonsspine is the local group of the SCA. We are dedicated to the research and reenactment of the Middle Ages, from 600 to 1600 AD.

Thursday night fighter practice is a weekly gathering for most all the players of the SCA, fighters or not. This is the best place to meet us and find out what we are about. All meetings are free (although donations for our winter site are gladly accepted). Period garb is not required unless otherwise posted (but you are always welcome to wear it). Please come out and play!

The SCA is structured in several segmants to make it easier to follow. The first level is Society. The Society level is what oversees the playability throughout the 19 Kingdoms. It's homepage is: The Society for Creative Anachronism

The next level, is the Kingdom. We reside in the Kingdom of the Outlands, the 12th of the 19 Kingdoms. The Outlands comprises of New Mexico, most of Colorado, parts of Wyoming and Nebraska, and El Paso and Hudspeth counties of Texas. To find out more information about our Kingdom, please view its homepage: Kingdom of the Outlands

The level following Kingdom is the Baronial level, which Dragonsspine is. The Coronet of Dragonsspine is responsible for the well-being of its populace in its area. Dragonsspine basically covers all of El Paso and Teller Counties. Inside of Dragonsspine, there are many other sub-groups referred to as Households and other like activities. These are not official SCA groups, but rather groups of like-minded friends who gather together.
