Introduction

I have been a part of the SCA since anno societatis 44. My girlfriend at the time (now my beautiful wife) told me about the SCA and insisted that I join her at Pennsic XXXVIII. It was my first event and there was so much going on that it took me until Pennsic XL before I started to find my footing in the SCA.

Persona

Born in Scandinavia in the year 821, Grímólfr Skúlason was the second son. His older brother was the heir to his family's farm and land was scarce to start his own family. Grímólfr, seeking his own way in life, joined an expedition to Ireland in the 830's under a chieftain named Thorgisl. Thorgisl and his crew set up settlements up the River Shannon in Ireland to make it easier for plundering the monasteries in Ireland. In 841, Grímólfr helped establish a community founded on the wedge of ground where the River Poddle met the River Liffrey, at a marshy place the locals called 'the black pool' Dubh Linn.

Over the years, the settlement turned from a temporary staging point into a full fledged settlement. Grímólfr decided to set up his home here, where he spent the remainder of his days.
