Here's the News!

Read the charter of the Minstrels' Guild.
Or just get charter, updates and comments in a nutshell.
How can you judge the quality of a bardic performance? There are some guidelines here.
Then there's a page with stories that I update occasionally.
Find some info about psalteries!
Here's a dictionary of musical terms in several Drachenwald languages.
And of course we have a link list.

What does the Minstrels' Guild of Drachenwald do?

We do:
... and trying to get people together to make music, exchange songs and stories and information, and encourage SCAdians to try their hands at the Bardic Arts.

To this purpose the Minstrels' Guild holds an event called "Bards' Night" once a year. (Or at least that's the plan ;-)


Lady Sarah bat David, Founder of our guild, has moved to the Kingdom of Caid.
Ingeborg Thorulfsdottir, who was the acting guildmistress for quite a while, has taken a break from the SCA.
Lady Valeria delle Stelle, Minstrel and Guildmistress.

Central Drachenwald: Lord Jehan de Lorraine, Journeyman and Minstrel's Guild webmaster.
