he Kingdom of Calontir is a regional group within the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), an international organization dedicated to recreating aspects of the Middle Ages. If you are unfamiliar with the SCA, we would suggest starting with the newcomers section.
The region that makes up Calontir covers most of Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri and a touch of Arkansas. If you are interested in contacting the SCA within this area, take a look at the Groups and Branches list or the Calontir Map. Join us as we learn about history by making it come alive. Follow us on Facebook, or you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Do You Hear the Drums of War?
Pennsic War Muster
Gwen, sharpest of eye and beloved of Apollo, gave wisdom to her high-hearted prince. “There is a land to the east where coopers ply their trade, with a wine-dark lake, a fair land, begirt with fortune. Give your people benched ships and lead them across those many leagues. There shall you honor find, and the chance for both you and your folk to do that great thing.”
Agamemnon then shouted the war-cry. “Zeus, Zeus, don’t let the sun go down or the night descend on us! Not till I hurl the smoke-black halls of my foes headlong and torch their gates to blazing rubble.”
Bright-eyed Gwen agreed. “You shall see the rosy-fingered dawn light the glory of you and your people.”
Are you seeking the rosy-fingered dawn at Pennsic? Will you see the wine-dark Cooper’s Lake? Will you help hurl down the smoke-black halls of his foes? Agamemnon and Gwen care not whether you intend on serving Zeus, Athena, Apollo, Hestia, Hephaestes, or Dionysus, if you intend to join them please fill out the muster.

R.U.S.H. is a chartered group within Calontir dedicated to teaching various aspects of medieval history and our society to our own members.
The War of the Lilies is an annual event held in the center of the Kingdom of Calontir in June. It has been said that Lilies is so much like a vacation, you may forget it is a war, and it is our hope to continue that tradition.
