Welcome to the restored Codex Fabliauum!
The Codex Fabliauum was originally created by Aleksandr Ruslanovich (called Yevsha) during his role as First Speaker of the Carolingian Storyteller's Guild in the Barony of Carolingia, in the East Kingdom of the SCA. ( Carolingia East Kingdom SCA )
Here's Yevsha's description of how it was created:
Around A.S. 33, some people (guild members and audience alike) complained that they heard the same stories over and over again. Similarly, some people complained that sources for period stories were too hard to find, so story-tellers were forced to go back to the same sources over and over again.
In response, I laid a challenge before the Guild. For every historic source that they wrote up and submitted to me, I would respond with a source (which is why about half of the entries have my name on them). We put some sort of time-limit on it -- maybe a month? -- and, in the end, I think we all won, since the result was this resource.
The current First Speaker of the guild, Michael of York, has recaptured and restored these pages for use by the storytelling community at large. Michael will be maintaining them and enhancing them, so contact him for more information (firstname.lastname@example.org).
