As you can see below, I've been slightly obsessed with the Russian Middle Ages since I started in the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) in A.S. XXXII (1997), in the Shire of Shadowdale in the great Kingdom of Calontir. The information was originally put here for my reference, but I hope you find it helpful, rough and incomplete though it may be.

Unless otherwise noted, the articles and illustrations are my own creation, so please give credit where credit is due. All of them are also "works in progress" (although some haven't been worked on in a while). Please feel free to enlighten me.
