An SCAism is a term that has been coined or adopted by many in the SCA which is considered by some to be inappropriate either because it is a modern term, a constructed term, or a term which doesn't mean what it did in period. Unfortunately it is very hard to get rid of such words.

More authentic versions could be:

  • Autocrat: Steward
  • Feastocrat: Chief Cook
  • Eric: tourney field or lists
  • List field: tourney field or lists
  • List keeper/officer: lists keeper/officer
