I live in the Barony of Carillion and discovered the SCA in the spring of 2023. My first experience in the SCA was the Waking of the Salamander in Bhakail, and I've been trying to go to as many events as I can and do as many things as possible since then, although I'm a little hampered by lack of transportation.

I'm excited about a variety of crafts (the current list is bobbin lace, tablet weaving, wire weaving, and wire jewelry), heavy fighting, archery, helping people carry heavy stuff and other simple ways to contribute, and the overall atmosphere (I love court!)

Projects & Publications

I make 16th century bobbin lace! Here are some of my submission write-ups. Feel free to contact me with any questions!

In other random skills it might be useful to note, I'm from Poland and am happy to help people translate/research things in Polish if needed.

Offices & Positions


I don't have one yet - hopefully I'll settle on an idea once I've had the time to see what's out there.


In Case of Court

I'd like a surprise if possible! My chatelaine or baroness (Ciaran Ua Meic Thire and Tysha z Kieva) generally know which events I'm going to. I'm an unsuspicious person and you can probably ask me a lot of related questions without me figuring out what's going on.

Nika is pronounced Nee-kah. I haven't decided on a persona gender yet, and any pronouns are fine, but if I am awarded a title I'd prefer the gender-neutral variant.

I love abstract/geometric/leafy patterns and swords; my favorite color combination is blue+gold+black. Text-wise I like feudal and community themes, and simple old-fashioned phrasing (I don't know how to describe text styles, but my favorite songs are True And Destined Prince, Bow To The Crown, and The Rose & Lion by Marion of Heatherdale, if that helps) or Norse poetry; I'm not fond of jokes or rhyming poetry or too much legalese. (I feel awkward going on this much about what I like, but I figure if someone might spend dozens of hours working on a scroll for me one day, I should give them something to work with.)
