Knowne World Handbook project
The Known World Handbook project is nearing the end of the article gathering process and we need your help. We are in desperate need of authors knowledgeable in the following core areas to write an article for the Known World Handbook. If you know of anyone I could contact (name, email and/or phone) that is well versed in these areas and a good author I would really appreciate the lead or feel free to forward on this email:
The KWH is targeted to new comers to the SCA with less than 2 years experience, will be universal with concepts that span all Kingdoms, will contain topics and information that will last at least 10 years and needs to support existing SCA documents and handbooks, not try to replace them.

*Notes regarding Brief Kingdom Histories and Specific Kingdom Customs. Seeking 1-2 paragraphs each in length describing what makes your Kingdom unique, what traditions make up the heart and soul of who your Kingdom is and what transpired to bring your Kingdom into existence. These should be exciting and enticing stories recounting the glory of your Kingdom and not just a laundry list of facts. These will likely be compiled from many different authors.
