Had far to many friends to list in the SCA, but despite several failed attempts, never really got into it. That changed in 2013, when I realized everything I do for fun shuts down for Pennsic. Blacksmith, embroiderer, archer.


Donato is a blacksmith and the son of a blacksmith in 1320's Venice working in the expanding Arsenal. Through skill and patronage, he has risen to a position of authority, and the ability to expedite work as needed has expanded his fortunes. Combined with a few shrewd investments in various trading vessels (including those with certain storage areas that tend to be missed by customs inspectors), he has become reasonably wealthy. Not listed in the book of nobility, he will never rise to the ruling class, but instead is content with a comfortable working life, and the free time it gives him to work on personal projects.
