About House Fine Lames

House Fine Lames (that's French, and pronounced Finn Lahm, for any philistines who may visit) was formed in the mid 1990's by a small group of late period French personas who banded together so as not to be consumed by the hordes of Vikings who surrounded them. They soon adopted a few more folks, who, while not French, nor as late period, had lovely singing voices and great garb. Over the years we have added like-minded friends.

And so, the household consists of, and is open to, people who dress well, sing well, fight well, dance well, and costume well (pick any 3 or more!). We're a pretty low-key household - there's not a lot of advertising or requirements made of members - we're just people who share common interests, and therefore often camp together, eat together at feasts, and so on.
