As I tell any patron who points out historical inaccuracies: Renaissance Faire! All of the adventure and romance, none of the disease and brutal oppression!

dforkus: For fun...

YEs I realize its not historically accurate, that many of the folks at the fair would be burned at the stake for dressing/acting the way they do, but alas...


The SCA vs The Ren Faire workers is the nerd version of the Sharks vs the Jets.

PanicMan: Because they would have probably eaten cats or something. I think that's why they call it "creative anachronism".

theorellior: Turkey legs. Although turkeys are New World birds, so they technically wouldn't have them in the actual Renaissance.


Back then it was "anything slower than you" on a stick.

Mead.  Swords.  Horses.  Fire-twirling. Gorgeous clothing.  Meat on a stick.  Fake fighting.  In other words, fun stuff.

Now I want mead.
