Welcome!



Who we are

The Barony of Stargate is a local chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), within the Coastal regional subdivision of the Kingdom of Ansteorra. The SCA is a non-profit, educational organization dedicated to learning more about the Middle Ages through reenactment. There are SCA chapters worldwide and they hold regular feasts, tournaments, balls and battles.

Ansteorra includes all of Oklahoma and most of Texas (except El Paso). Stargate includes most of greater Houston. Our neighboring Barony of Loch Soilleir includes most of the greater Clear Lake area, including Webster and Pearland. The North Houston area is served by the Shire of Gate's Edge. Wherever you are we're a friendly group of people, so why not visit us all?
