Welcome to [[Cunnan]], a [[Wiki]] collecting information for [[re-enactor]]s of the [[Middle Ages]] and [[Renaissance]] with a heavy slant towards members of the [[SCA]].
 
[[Cunnan]] is the largest [[SCA]] wiki in the world and anyone can edit our articles. You should '''be bold in updating pages!''' Articles can only be improved if people are contributing new information and improving old information. So add research information, how-to pages, event information and anything else you can think of.
 
   
 
[[Cunnan]] is believed to be the largest [[SCA]]-related wiki in the world but anyone can edit our articles. You should '''be bold in updating pages!''' Articles can only be improved if people are contributing new information and improving old information. So add research information, how-to pages, [[event]] information and anything else you can think of. Cunnan should be applicable worldwide, so be mindful of [[Cunnan:Regional_point_of_view|regional differences]] - use comments such as "In [[Lochac]]...". If you see anything that is different in your area, add a note on your local variation.<br>

Welcome to Cunnan, a Wiki collecting information for re-enactors of the Middle Ages and Renaissance with a heavy slant towards members of the SCA.

Cunnan is believed to be the largest SCA-related wiki in the world but anyone can edit our articles. You should be bold in updating pages! Articles can only be improved if people are contributing new information and improving old information. So add research information, how-to pages, event information and anything else you can think of. Cunnan should be applicable worldwide, so be mindful of regional differences - use comments such as "In Lochac...". If you see anything that is different in your area, add a note on your local variation.

News & Updates
November 30 Cunnan now has more than 4,186 articles!
April 4th Cunnan's software has been upgraded. If anything is broken you should leave a note at the Village pump.
