Baronial Discord Server!

Salve Accolens!

We are excited to announce that the Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands now has our very own Discord Server.

What is a Discord Server? Discord is an application that you download to your device, with centralized forum boards that can be organized by topics or “Channels.” Channels can be text-based or voice-based–that’s right, you can connect to a voice channel and talk instead of type! There’s even video capability. Discord works on laptops and computers as well as mobile devices.

You DO need to have a Discord Account to use the server. We recommend that you set up an account if you don’t already have one, before trying to join the server. Here’s a good site to help do that: https://support.discord.com/hc/en-us/articles/360033931551-Getting-Started

If you are brand-new to Discord, you can also learn more about the platform here: https://support.discord.com/hc/en-us/articles/360045138571-Beginner-s-Guide-to-Discord

We are looking for volunteers, preferably with experience either in Discord, or with other forum sites, or both, to be moderators. If you are interested in moderating, please contact Gwendolyn the Graceful (Social Media Officer) to discuss the duties and commitments involved.

Once you have your account set up and linked to a verified email address, you can join the server here: https://discord.gg/WyXayF7U

When you arrive, you’ll be asked to read the rules and take a couple quick actions to help get settled, and then you can dive in to discussions! If you qualify for a role, such as an officer, drop the admins a line so we can be sure to assign it. If, on looking around, you have any suggestions or find that there’s a channel missing, please contact an admin or a moderator. This server is intended to be an evolving space that we can tweak as-needed.

For the purposes of the SCA, Inc., the Discord falls under the office of the Social Media Officer and all conduct on the server must be in compliance with the SCA’s Code of Conduct, Bullying and Harassment Policy, and all other rules governing official SCA social media use.

Call for Letters – Become the next BMDL Minister of Arts and Sciences!

Greetings to all whom these letters reach!
I have had the honor of serving as the BMDL Minister of Arts and Sciences for the past 2 years. During that time, I’ve witnessed countless acts of creation and teaching as the artisans of our barony have found new and countless ways to share their arts and love of learning.
The time has come for an official call for letters for the next gentle that would like to take up this mantle! My term ends on February 3, 2021 and I will not be seeking an additional term due to mundane circumstances.
What the job entails:
The baronial Minister of Arts and Sciences is the point person to connect those who are curious with those who can teach, to promote A&S activities within the barony, and to act as an enabler for those participants that wish to explore arts and sciences within the SCA. This position reports to the BMDL Seneschal and to the Kingdom A&S Officer. You must be a paid member of the SCA to hold this position.
Administratively, the Minister of Arts and Sciences:
Must submit quarterly reports to the Kingdom A&S Officer via web portal.
Monitors the BMDL A&S sub-page on the website for potential updates.
Attends the BMDL Officers’ meetings and acts as a voting officer.
Utilizes the BMDL Blog A&S Minister profile to promote A&S activities and opportunities.
Recruits and trains a deputy A&S minister.
I am available to answer any questions you may have about the position. All letters should be submitted to me at ansminister at debatablelands.org and to the seneschal at seneschal at debatablelands.org no later than February 1, 2021 for consideration at the February 3rd Officers’ Meeting.
In service,
Baroness Isabel Fleuretan

Dec 6th 2pm – Sewing circle fabric and fiber Show and Tell

It has been quite a year. December sewing circle is a Show and Tell. It will be held Dec 6th, at 2pm in a kingdom zoom room. So for the day before Pearl Harbor Day, the theme is “A day that will live in Industry”. If you have made something with fabric or fiber please come show it off and talk a little about your project. This can be a recent project or an older one. It is a chance for others to see what you made. If your project has pearls, I think that is extra credit. For information about the zoom session contact sewing at debatablelands dot org.
