[Darkwood-SCA] Somewhat of an introduction...

I'd like to introduce myself, rather than lurking, since this list seems rather quiet. While I've never visited an SCA event, (local Renfaire doesn't count...) I'm quite interested in much of what I've found online. Everything from Calligraphy to modern castlebuilding.
My mundane name is Allan, haven't quite figured out a persona for period use, though. Working on some research for a reasonable attempt at garb so I don't feel too self-concious when I *do* manage to visit an event.
I've already been interested in Calligraphy, bookmaking, blacksmithing, armoring, and other period craftsperson persuits. Even before coming upon the SCA, I had often considered ways of making modern conveniences work with ancient equipment (whether they actually did or not is another story). Hot water showers and running water, hydro-powered smithy bellows (paper mill, grain mill, clothes washing, etc.) and perhaps even landscape watering.
Well, I can't really think of anything further to ramble on about (besides how cool it would be to build a real castle...o.O) so I'll cease.
If anyone has some pointers for a newcomer, or just some interesting information, let me know. Thank you,
Allan S. Menefee
