Suddenly, the masculine figure lunged, his rapier aimed at his opponent's heart. She sank to the ground, her long, green- and-cream-striped skirt drifting in the wind. A black-robed monk stepped solemnly forward. "Milady, can you cease your dying and show me how this thing works," he called impatiently, holding out a camera. And so it often is when the Amarillo members of the Society of Creative Anachronism have get-togethers. Members feast, frolic and fight in the manner of medieval days. Life is rough and simple, full of robust pleasures, and death is but a momentary embarrassment. At any time, the mundane world of today can creep in. The small but merry band met on a recent weekend on the shores of the lake. A snake-like sea monster languished in the tide, heraldic banners marked campsites, and children in period garb roamed Who's That Girl _ WAHNCH BROS * IPVJ Check PUTT GUIOf tot show times I KIM BASINCER "A roller -aMMor ride wi iy:»> Kom UIUKU HI .'lirill 10 l.iui!!i id tlifiil." ••« v,,,,«. ••«»' NADINE A conuily Irom ROBEHT HK.NTO.s ^ Check PUTTGUIDf tor show times CINEMA TEN It's fun to be a vampire.

The day was bright, the wind tugged insolently at revelers' garments, and the sunlight through the leaves dappled their antics. "It's all done for fun, and we finance it on our own," said society member Barbara Baker. She explained that each member assumes a persona, or medieval character. Members are encouraged to make their personae as authentic as possible, giving them real names, backgrounds and periods of existence. "Some of us put in a whole lot of research on our persona," Ms. Baker said, explaining that some members even learn medieval skills and crafts such as lute- and harp-playing and armor-making to enhance their personas. Her persona is Lorien Elizabeth Dante, the wife of a Sicilian mercenary in the 14th century. "This is a sample of what we do when we are noi fighting," she said, displaying a square cloth of blackwork, its gold and black threads embroidered in a geometric pattern. Ms. Baker also prepared a homemade mead of honey, ginger and orange for the weekend festivities. This particular revel was held in honor of the club seneschal (president), Trixie Wahl of Canyon. She was celebrating her "23rd natal day," or birthdav. Ms. Wahl is known among her SCA cronies as Rolanda Rossner, a 15th-century German Like many of the men and women in the group, Ms. Wahl participates in mock battles, wielding rapier and knife. Tourneys often also include heavy sword-and-shield battles that require leather armor or chain mail. "There are people in the SCA for the fun, and there are people in it for the history," she explained. "I'm in it for fun" said Matt Milliron, alias Maximillion, a Germanic former mercenary who made his fortune and now only fights for pleasure. Most of the members participating in the lakeside event were from the shire of Adlesruhe (Amarillo) in the Kingdom of Ansteorra (Texas and Oklahoma), Ms. Wahl said, but others came from Lubbock, San Angelo, Clovis. N.M., and Liberal, Kan. There are about 20 SCA members in the Amarillo- Canyon area, which holds populace meetings once a month and battle practice almost every Sunday at Memorial Park, She said there are 12 kingdoms among the SCA, which is an international organization. Another regional event is scheduled at Lake McClelland on Oct.22-23. the All Hallow's Eve Revel and Tournev.
