Many of my friends who are completely virgin to the SCA and all of it's many wonders have been asking me a lot of questions these days. It thrills me to no end to think of some day being able to run into all of my friends at Pennsic War, eventually. Of course, it's not that easy. I understand that it is pricey and to pay that sort of thing you should have at least a basic understanding of what you're getting yourself into and how to go about it. It can either be a blast of fun or a giant cluster of insanity in the midst of 20,000+ people.
Granted, I don't claim to be an SCA/Pennsic master or genius, but I've been to a decent enough amount of events to have seen quite a bit and learned more than my fair share.
Several people have requested I do something along these lines and great a 'virtual tour.' I'm choosing pictures over words, since something cannot be explained any way other than visually. And even in these photographs I can't tell of the sheer thrill and enjoyment that the scenerios they were captured in can contain. I'll do my best though, and attempt to make this as 'newbie' friendly as possible!! I'll also be leaving this post public. Any of my fellow SCA-goers (and strangers), if you have ANYTHING you would like to add in comments, please do!!
