This is the page for the Province of Mooneschadowe located in Stillwater, Oklahoma. This is the only province in Ansteorra as of 2009.
In September 1978, William Blackfox attended a wargaming convention at OSU and introduced a number of students to the SCA. By April of 1979, the Incipient Shire of Mona Sceaduw was formed. By September 1979, we were formally recognized as a Shire. In January 1981, the name Mona Sceaduw and the device, Sable, in pale a sun eclipsed argent and a laurel wreath, a chief Or, were registered with the College of Heralds. In June 1984, our group name was officially changed to Mooneschadowe. We tried to register the "bullethole" badge but it failed. In May 1988 the Mooneschadowe Militia was formed, and Alexandros Dietrich von Einhornwald was the first Captain. In November 1988 we tried a different concept on the bulltehole badge - failure again. In July 1991, we registered a device change to: Sable, a sun argent, eclipsed sable, and on a chief Or, a laurel wreath sable. At the same time we registered our first badge: (Fieldless) A lion-dragon statant contourny Or. In April 1995, submitted petition to be raised to Baronial status -- was returned at Kingdom. That same month we tried a third time for a bullethole badge -- epic failure. In January 1996, we registered our 2nd badge: (Fieldless) A peacock in its pride proper. And in March 1996 the Liondragon Guard went to Gulf Wars as a fighting unit for the first time. And then that September the Militia was formally disbanded & and the LDG formed with Talen von Marienburg as the first Captain. In March 1997, Mooneschadowe & Northkeep become the premier holders of the King's Battle Ribbon (created by HRM Mahadi I).
