About The Barony

The Barony of Bhakail is the fourth oldest barony in the East Kingdom, having been founded in September of A.S. VI (1971). The Barony of Bhakail’s arms are registered as: Gules, a Salamander sable dancing in flames, environed of a laurel wreath proper, on a chief argent a hurst of three trees, maple, pine and oak, proper,cropped-cropped-wpbanner.png
between a quill and a quill inverted, gules.

The Baronial badge is: A salamander in his flames Sable.

There are two sub-branches in the Barony: the Bailiwick of Ivyeinrust, which includes in its borders Center City and West Philadelphia, and the Canton of Black Icorndall, which is comprised of the western and southwestern suburbs of Philadelphia. The members of these branches are full and active members on the Baronial level but have the ability to host their own events and activities as well—which are open to everyone, whether they live in the sub-branch or not.

If you live outside the official boundaries of the Barony entirely, you are still more than welcome to come play with us—but you might be able to find a group that is closer to home and more convenient. Check out the SCA’s official website at www.sca.org to help you find a local SCA branch!
