Lady Maryna Borowska (mka Blueberry (yes, really)) is a new player as of May 2018. She resides in the Bailiwick of Ivyeinrust in the Barony of Bhakail and has been invited to join the Black Boot Company.

Pronouns: she/her/hers


No persona. The name Maryna is late-period Polish - interests lie generally in Germanic and Slavic regions and taste runs to the late end (13th-16th centuries). Don't let the Viking garb confuse you too much.

Pani Borówka (the Polish word for "blueberry") is a culturally appropriate nickname/cant.

In Case of Court

Surprises are strongly preferred. My partner does not play. Contact Iriniia Mieszkowna if you wish to ensure my friends or partner will be present.


I do not wear or use leather or other forms of animal skin.

Please use vegetable paper for scrolls and vegan/synthetic leather alternatives for garb or accessories. This is somewhat flexible if the skin can be determined to be ethically sourced (humanely treated and all parts used of the animal) but is a strong general preference. (Wool or other animal products that leave the animal alive are fine.)

I also have a sensory aversion to unfinished or "raw" wood.

Food: I do not eat beef. I am also very sensitive to many spices. In general, vegetarian or poultry-based options are preferred.

Drink: The sweeter the better!
