Re: On the differences between the North and South...

Greetings Good Gentles,

Concerning a Northern principality Jessamyn di Piemonte writes: <snip>  But

Good Lady, I disagree.  Personally, I joined the SCA, not a Kingdom, YMMV.

Depends, though, on how new people are brought in and how they're introduced to travelling.  Did you join in a principality or a kingdom?  If, for example, you joined in the Kingdom of Atlantia, you were shown kingdom culture.  If you were to join in a principality, you might be shown principality culture.  It depends on what folks around you tell you to some extent, and thus what you feel a connection to.  I'm not saying you'd be a sheep and be ruled totally by others- you'd probably travel to events your friends went to.  It's just a human nature thing.  Of course, there will always be those who will/will not travel regardless.

I mean sure, I joined the SCA too- but do I go to East Kingdom events?  Naw.....or Aethelmarc?  Nope.  I don't get the newsletters, it's easier to just go to Atlantian stuff.... Of course, I have been thinking lately I need to make time to get to more events in the southern end of the kingdom.  I just don't have a convenient camping tent, and so many of their events are now camping events....and that's a factor that has an effect on travel too....

It's an aculturation and convenience thing.....
