The Shire of Okeborne Keep is an SCA branch in the Kingdom of Meridies. It is located in Tuscaloosa, AL (USA).


The Shire of Okeborne Keep occupies territory previously held by the defunct Shire of Misty Mere.

History of Misty Mere

The Shire of Misty Mere was founded by a group of University of Alabama students who first met in late 1979. It was recognized as an SCA branch in 1980. There were some 20 people at the first organizational meeting, only two of whom had any previous contact with the SCA - Lord Jean Pierre de Etonoir and Lady Melianne d'Avignon, both of whom had newly moved to Meridies from Ansteorra.

History of Sable Oak

The Shire of Sable Oak has submitted a new name, the name "Sable Oak" having been returned for conflict by the SCA College of Arms. The proposed new name is Okeborne Keep.
