Minor Welsh border nobility, end of the 14th century into the beginning of the 15th. In terms of English monarchs, that would be the last of the reign of Richard II, and those of Henry IV and Henry V, eventually reaching that of Henry VI, I suppose. At some point—probably when I was much younger—I survive the Agincourt campaign of 1415.

I started in the SCA in September, 1974, some months after the Shire of Nordskogen was formed. Indulged in fighting (which necessarily included armoring), heraldry, writing, holding offices as needed, and, of course, researching history.

Offices, once upon a time:
    Herald (first Nordskogen shire pursuivant, first Principality Herald)
    Seneschal (shire, first Northshield regional)
    Stallarar for Northshield as Crown Principality
    Kingdom Law Clerk (first), deputy of Seneschal
    Armored Combat Marshal of the Field
  In these days:
    Herald at large and (very) occasional internal commenter

Principality and Kingdom awards, see below.

Other awards:
  Order of the River of Blood/Rouge Bend (Nordskogen, premier)
  Order of the Heavy Cross (Nordleigh)
  "Order" of the Golden Screw & Foaming Fountain (quasi-household; for satiric poetry)

Protegé elevated:
  Lady Libbet (TH Mistress Elysabet de Warren, Laurel, Pel.)

Current protegés:
  Diarmait mac Dauid (with Dame Bridget)
  Lord Gérard de Lisieux (inactive)

Facebook (very infrequent)
MySpace (as storyguy—almost never)
Blog (see Persona Web Site above)—aiming for every other week or so
