The Sixth Year

(No event title) -- Barony of the Angels
May 25, 1971

Pwyll pen Tyrhon left the Barony and Sárkáyi Gerö became Vicar of the Barony.

“Aha! I think this was my first real event, after having observed the fighting at Baycon a couple of years before--though I'd thought my first event was toward the end of AS VI rather than at the beginning. The one I attended was held in Pwyll and Rhiannon's large back yard, and I certainly remember meeting Sarkanyi at that event--but any administrative subtleties of a shift from Baron to Vicar no doubt escaped my comprehension. That may have been where I first met the late T.A. Waters, who was a friend of Pwyll's and a very fine illusionist and member of the Magic Castle; very sadly, he died earlier this year. There was also a rather memorable and exotic chap called--I think--Bahadur Ravenscloak. I don't think I ever saw him at another event, but years later his image came to mind when I first saw the film, "Knight Rider"--which I thought at the time surely must have had some serious creative input from members of the SCA (though apparently it didn't). (But there was that famous magazine article showing certain dukes righting on motorbikes and, I believe, conducting an abduction!)” – Bevin Fraser of Stirling

Disclaimer: This history may have errors in it, as much of the detail is “remembered” history, or as one of the cover pages of the original type-written manuscript states “The material within is derived from the information printed in The Crown Prints and in The Page, and from the memories of the participants.” The original document was typed on onion-skin paper, with hand-written notes (often in the margins).
