BARONY OF DARKWOOD, THE WEST: In a move that comes as a shock to exactly no one, the Board of Directors of the Society for Creative Anachronism has announced they are embracing and expanding their new Diversity, Equity and Inclusion policies to ensure they will forevermore ignore everyone in the SCA equally.
This reporter was able to get an exclusive statement from a Board member who wishes to remain anonymous: “We have been getting pretty seriously beat up over this whole ‘DEI’ thing, and we now realize how wrong we’ve been letting this fester. So, going forward, we have codified new DEI policies that will ensure we will not be bothered by the populace EVER again. By ignoring everyone in the SCA, we can go on with our business of running the SCA into the ground without any further disturbance.”
Members of the populace Society-wide have been caught off guard by this, and are now in the process of figuring out their next steps. “Well, now what do we do? If they’re just going to ignore our righteous indignation, then what do we have left?” stated an unnamed Atenveldtan peer. “I’m going to write a sternly worded letter to them, they need to know how outraged we are as a populace!” ranted an Ealdomerian Royal Peer, apparently unaware that the complaint would go unnoticed. This reporter will continue to monitor this glacially changing situation.
