Brendoken Rapier Corps (A Drinking Song)

Submitted by Justin on Fri, 2008-09-26 19:59.

Back in 2006, I wrote The Banner of Brendoken as a marching song for the Barony. Okay, that was fun. By 2008, I decided it was time for something a little less serious. The rapier fighters in Brendoken had by then attained quite a reputation for their skill. Since the whole Barony had a fight song, I decided the fencers needed...a drinking song!

I'll never claim to be a composer nor a musician, but I do occasionally write a filk song that people enjoy.

The Banner of Brendoken

Submitted by Justin on Fri, 2006-09-01 19:13.

By request, here are the words to the marching song I wrote for Brendoken and performed at the Baronial Court at Pennsic 35 and then again at Masque of Courtly Love in 2007. With the kind assistance of Lady Ursula the Widow, I have also added a MIDI file so you can hear the tune, and the sheet music in printable PDF format.

Introduction to SCA Households

Submitted by Justin on Fri, 2006-09-01 19:07.

Many newcomers to the SCA are confused about households, and are not sure what to do about invitations to join one. This article, originally posted to the SCA Newcomers' list, explains the basics of households from a newcomer's perspective.

Milica and Justin's Pennsic Adventure

Submitted by Milica on Tue, 2006-07-18 13:56.

The weather is hot and suddenly our friends are beginning to talk about beating each other with sticks. It must be time for Pennsic! For those of us who have been to "War" before, this time of the year is like going home. It's the eagerly awaited vacation we've longed for during the cold winter months. For first-timers, however, the thought of preparing for a two-week-long, medieval camping event can be somewhat overwhelming. We know. We've been there! Hopefully, the following pages will ease the anxiety somewhat.
