(Good Day!)

Welcome to my internet home. I am Mu'allim Rabah az-Zafir (moo-AH-limm RAH-bah ah-ZTHAH-fear), a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. (SCA, Society). ("Mu'allim" is the title that denotes my rank within the Society and is the Arabic equivalent of the term "Master".)

The Society is a nonprofit educational organization devoted to research and education in the field of pre-17th-Century Western Culture. As a living history group, the Society provides an environment in which members can recreate various aspects of the culture and technology of the period, as well as doing more traditional historical research. They sponsor events such as tournaments and feasts where members dress in clothing styles worn in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and participate in activities based on the civil and martial skills of the period. These activities recreate aspects of the life and culture of the landed nobility in Europe prior to 1600 CE. The dress, pastimes, and above all the chivalric ideals of the period serve to unify our events and activities.

The Society's "Knowne World" is divided into 19 Kingdoms, each with a King and Queen (who rule by right of arms), a Prince and Princess (heirs to the throne), and a council of Great Officers who handle the day to day business of running the kingdom. Go to to see a great interactive map showing where each of the Kingdoms are located.
