These linked policy changes were discussed at the December 2014 Officers' Meeting after receiving feedback from the Barony. Please send any comments or questions to the Seneschal, Alaric. These policies will be voted on at the April Officers' Meeting and would go into effect once they are published in the Althing after the April Officers' Meeting.
The Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands is a branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism, an international organization dedicated to the study and recreation of the Middle Ages and early Renaissance.
Geographically, the Debatable Lands include greater Pittsburgh and most of southwestern Pennsylvania. The Debatable Lands is the oldest and one of the largest baronies in the Kingdom of Æthelmearc, the region covering western New York, most of Pennsylvania outside the Harrisburg-Philadelphia corridor, and West Virginia.
The Barony-Marche also proudly includes two smaller branches within its borders: the Canton of Steltonwald, covering Beaver County, PA; and the no-longer-incipient College of Cour d'Or (CONGRATULATIONS YINZ GUYS!), representing Pittsburgh-area college students.

- "People first hearing about Pennsic often say, 'So, it’s like a Renaissance fair?' It’s really not. It’s the difference between going to see a hockey game and strapping on a pair of skates..." An excellent article on the most recent Pennsic War can be found here.
