High Immersion

Immersion: noun- im·mer·sion-  \i-ˈmər-zhən, -shən\

  • complete involvement in some activity or interest
  • a method of learning a foreign language by being taught entirely in that language

This is a high-immersion event, but what exactly does that mean? Well, gentle traveler, it means that we invite you to join our story. In following links we will discuss the setting and how you can be a part of it, but for now, let us discuss a few things this event is, and is not.

This is not your standard SCA event. Every aspect, from the classes to the fighting, have been set up in a way to encourage immersion. From the moment the gatekeeper welcomes you to the village, till long after the sun sets, we want you to be able to truly set aside the modern era and encourage you to play a part. This is not high- authenticity, although if you want to go that route that is awesome. If you are unable to have 100% perfect garb or a 100% period camp, that is fine and we won't be checking your seams or critiquing your kit.

What we do ask is that reasonable effort be made to fit the setting and theme of the event, and we ask that you play along. The staff will be doing everything we can to enhance the illusion, but the success of this event relies on you. The illusion will only be created and maintained if everyone takes part.

We realize that immersive play-acting may not appeal to everyone, and that is okay. This event may not be interesting for everyone. However if you are intrigued and would like to join us, we ask that you do so with an open mind, willing heart, and enthusiasm.

We will be proactively using this website to share information in the months and weeks leading up to the event, so there will be plenty of time to digest the setting and get a good idea what to expect.

We look forward to you joining the story.
