Welcome to MidBards - the on-line home of the Mid-Realm bardic community. This site is dedicated to the encouragement and support of the bardic arts within the Middle Kingdom and the Society for Creative Anachronism. We are made up of bards, troubadors, trouveres, minstrels, minnesingers, jongleurs, singers, storytellers, poets, scops, skalds, fillids, olaves, griots, wordsmiths, and friends of these arts. This site is meant to act as a community bulliten board, a knowledge base, and a repository of our work - a place to meet, teach, and be inspired. While our focus is on Mid-Realm bardic activities, anyone is welcome to make use of these pages. So welcome one and all. If you have questions, comments, or suggestions; please contact the webmaster, Cerian Cantwr.

If you would like to discuss things with the community as a whole, subscribe to the MidBards email list.

  • MidBards Site Changes April, 2017

    NOTE: Some of these changes will require you to refresh your browser cache
    (i.e.: on Windows, in Firefox - control-shift-R) in order to fully take effect.

    New Features:

    • Added a “CDs & Related Merchandise” category to the Links page.
    • New Search page - adds ability to search works by author, performer, and title.
    • Some ‘under the hood’ changes to make future projects possible.


    • Changed default font to make it more readable.
    • Created new site icon for browser tab. [Not entirely sure I like it.] You may need to visit http://tilted-windmill.com/favicon.ico to make it appear.
    • Allow for uploading of lyric files in .docx format.

  • MidBards Site Changes April, 2017 (continued)

    Bug Fixes:

    • When a new bard added their first work to the system, it didn’t always show up on the Works page.
    • Filenames containing multiple periods were having their extensions read as everything after the first dot.
    • Added more detail to file upload error messages.

    I’m working on a number of other upgrades for the site. Look for them to be appearing
    over the next few months, as time allows. If you have suggestions for other features you’d
    like to see added, please contact me.
