Culture is something you really have to experience for yourself.  I've lived in three different kingdoms and visited a few others, and found Calontir unique in the openness and friendliness. One thing about Dubuque is that it is very easy to visit different kingdoms--Madison is in Northshield, or you can visit the group in the Quad Cities (Dark River) which is in the Midrealm. Both are an easy drive from Dubuque.

Funny thing: you don't need your own gear to fight. Many places will have loaner gear for people just starting. I authorized twice in borrowed gear, and fought Pennsic in a set cobbled together by several people from their extra bits.
