History in the SCA:

  • 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 (competitions, championships, tourneys, first event, etc.)
      • 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 have one Protege: Johann Steinarsson.
