Barony of Vatavia

The Barony of Vatavia is a regional group within the Kingdom of Calontir.   We are members of the Society for Creative Anachronism, better known as the SCA.  Vatavia is home to Wichita, Kansas, and the greater surrounding area.  We have members from as far away as Peabody, Pratt, and Winfield!

The SCA is an international organization renowned for its dedication towards researching and recreating aspects of the Middle Ages, not as they were, but as we would have liked them to have been.  The SCA mostly concentrates on studying European History, but many members have chosen to study the Middle East and explore the interaction between Europe and Asia during this period.

If you are unfamiliar with the Society for Creative Anachronism, check out the Society's Introduction Guide for an explanation about the organization and what it is we do.

If you are already familiar with how we do things, great!  Our site provides additional information about the events and people of interest within Vatavia, and you are always welcome to come join us Wednesday evenings at American Legion Post 256.  We always have something going on - be sure to check out our Interest Groups page for more information and directions to many of our activities!

Please note that you need not be a member to participate in any of our activities. If you have any questions, or would like help getting involved, please visit our Chatelaine page or contact our Chatelaine directly.  We'd love to hear from you!

Greetings and Warm Salutations to the Populace of Vatavia,

It is both an honor and a privilege to serve the Barony of Vatavia as your next Baron and Baroness. This is a task that we do not take lightly. It is with the knowledge and hopes that we continue on a firm path of growth and prosperity forged for all of us, through the hard work of the past baronages and members of Vatavia. We are here to serve you, so please feel free to offer any suggestions, comments, and ideas. We are always here to listen. Please keep in mind that if we do not follow your suggestion immediately, we must take the whole barony into consideration, and often things take time and patience to put into place. We have admired the strong bonds of communication that Their Excellencies Uldin and Sung have forged through weekly updates and an active presence on the book of faces. We wish to try and continue this legacy. Please be patient with us as we have a steep learning curve and big shoes to fill.

We wish to Thank Their Royal Majesties and the Populace of Vatavia for their trust in us to lead the Barony and continue to build for a strong, solid, future.

We want to Congratulate those who received special recognition at the Lilies War including Johann on his Elevation to the Order of the Pelican. Kennocht who received his Leather Mallet , Scopti of Westumbria who received his second Award of Arms, and Rodrick for winning the 100 arrow shoot. We are so proud of your accomplishments.

In Service and love,
Baron Lawrence Tailifer the Leech and Baroness Genevieve de Chambery
