History

Founded at Pennsic XXVII and Chartered in Carolingia at Legends of Chivalry VI on 09/14/2001 the Village of Lochleven is situated in the lowlands of Scotland, temptingly close to the fat herds of sheep the English are foolish enough to think they own. The land underneath the Village has changed crowns several times. This does not matter so much to the residents who cheerfully do homage to whoever thinks they claim to possess their land that year.

There is no head of Lochleven or clan leader. The household is content to allow the rest of the society to think that Sir Edward Grey is the English Overlord of the Village, although Sir Edward is painfully aware that he is Not In Charge. Instead the household governs itself much like an anarcho-syndicalist commune, and sometimes like an autonomous collective depending on their mood.

A warlike, reiving sort of people, Lochleven is known for fielding a respectable fighting force, which is how most of the East Kingdom knows them. However, the Arts & Sciences and Service unto the society are highly valued in the household, as is the less well known art of creating Schtick.

Suspected of passing off stolen sheep as Barony tribute, kidnapping Mr Pirate Potato Heads, sacrificing of watermelons on Briget’s day and excessive weeping and wailing of mourning women at the Sustained Death Tourney, the true depths of Schtick that Lochleven brings to the society will never fully be known; they mostly practice their craft anonymously and in the dark of night. Requests to add Schtick to court, ritual or battlefields can be fielded through the Village Mouthpiece, Meggie inghean Lachlainn.

The Army

The Army attended it’s first Pennsic (XXVII) with 8 fighters. Known for their group cohesion and their unpretentious uniforms, at first other members of the Northern Army complained that they could not tell the Army’s individual members apart (“My God, it’s like fighting China!”).


Originally mercenaries under the pay of Squire Billy Fish for Duchy Von Drachenklaue, the Army now fights for love of the Northern Army, forming a principal part of 2nd Banda, 2nd Division. It has distinguished itself by producing two Knights, several squires and an ongoing list of new recruits. It was awarded Blue Tyger Legion at Pennsic XXXII, 08/14/2003.
