For the SCA, a lot of Melbourne is part of the Barony of Stormhold, including the College of St Bartholomew at Melbourne University (Parkville). The south-eastern suburbs are the Barony of Krae Glas, and the Bass Coast area is the proposed Canton of Iseldir (previously Bryn a Mor). The barony also includes the College of St Monica at Monash University (Clayton). The eastern suburbs of Melbourne are part of the Shire of Arrowsreach (which is independent of Stormhold).
