Greetings and Good Wishes to All

Who Am I? I am known in the SCA as Baroness Alianor bat Asriel or Aliyah. Please call me Aliyah.  From 2018-2023 I was the Territorial Baroness of the Barony of North Woods in the Middle Kingdom alongside my husband, Aindle, who was the Baron of North Woods. At the end of our tenure we were made Court Baron/Baroness. If you want to know more about me, check out

Why Kissing Camels? "Two camels couchant respectant conjoined at the lips Or" (Two gold camels in repose, kissing) is the heraldic blazon for my personal badge. It was developed from my SCA persona story and my registered formal heraldry. The whole story can be found at in "About Us."

What is the SCA? The SCA is the acronym the Society for Creative Anachronism, a non-profit 501c(3) educational organization that re-creates the best of the Middle Ages. For more information or to find a group near you, check out

History is more than dates and places;

it is a story, a story about people.

"Acts of kindness are greater than charity since they can be done for both the rich and poor… Charity can only be done with one’s money, while acts of loving-kindness can be performed both personally and with one’s money." - Rambam (Mishnah: Hilchos Aivel 14:1)
