I wanted to make a small dedication page for my old SCA clan, Clanne Preachain (Clan of the Crow), an early period Celts group. I say "old" because it's been quite a few years since I've been able to see any of them IRL. We are separated physically by many states and many miles, as the crow flies. Preachain is home to some of the most beautiful and talented people you are ever likely to meet, and the amount of ancient historical knowledge and collection of crafty skills shared among them is pretty staggering to boot. So, if you ever find yourself near the bogs of western Pennsylvania on a warm evening in early August, just follow the sound of the drums down The Hill to the tall, winged gate by the water for a horn full of dark ale and some pleasant merriment.
Below are links to the blog/crafty sites of some of the other Preachain-ys. I'll be adding to the list as I learn of more sites online. We have three amazingly knowledgeable and wonderful bards (that I know of - there may be more now). Two have blog sites, Etaine and Linea, and I've listed them below. Anubh does not currently have anything online, but she will let me know when she's bitten by the writing bug again. :) Stilicho (Steve Corn), a very talented metalsmith/weaponsmith now turned toymaker, has a link below, as does Hagen (Steven Levenhagen), another talented metal sculptor and weaponsmith. There is also a link below to one of our Celtic sister clans - Craobh Dearg - with a reprint of the origin story of Preachain's Women in White.
