Feastocrat : Chief Cook

Revision as of 14:36, 6 November 2003

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.

  • An autocrat is in charge of an event.
  • A feastocrat is in charge of the food at an event.
  • A victorian term remove is really a course.
  • The term garb referred to a sheaf of wheat. People dress in clothes which may resemble their national costume.
  • Smalls referred in period to undergarments, not children.
