History in the SCA:[edit | edit source]

  • Timeline:
  • I first encountered the SCA in 1984, while living in Forgotten Sea, but it didn't "stick". I moved to Carlsby, and attended a few meetings, and tried fighting, but armor was expensive & I never developed a passion for it. In 1990 I moved to Crescent Moon, and discovered a very enthusiastic and friendly group, and that's the time I consider as my start in the Society.
  • Significant events since then:
    • Original Champion of the Bardic College, that is, holder of the Big Damn Stick, in 1999.
    • I wrote "The Compact Between Horse and Man", commonly called "the horsey song", in 2006.
    • I wrote "Sword From the Stone" and won the Northshield WW Smith's Challenge in 2006.
    • I was elevated to the Order of the Pelican in July 2009. I had one Protege: Johann Steinarsson. At the coronation of Donnegal and Catalina (January 2019), I begged the boon for him to be elevated to the Order of the Pelican. After some weather delays, he was elevated at Lilies War (June 2019).
    • I was granted Herald Extraordinary status by Saito Takauji, Gold Falcon, in April 2018.
