Bantiarna Shannon inghean Bhriain uí Dhuilleáin, pleased to meet you! My very first event was NRWC in July 2000, after which I promptly lost track of the SCA for nearly four years. I rediscovered it after I was discharged from the Army in the Barony of Western Seas, Caid (Hawaii). I have since lived and played in four kingdoms (Caid, Atlantia, West and East). Yep, that's Snoopy on my arms! The blazon is simply a white dog's head, cut off at the neck. It's not breed-specific, so I take artistic liberties. And yes, it is rendered thus on my AoA scroll. :-)
I am a member of House Rosegate and protege to Mistress Arianna Morgan (Atlantia).
15th c. Irish noblewoman (who greatly fancies Viking attire!)
In Case of Court
- Please contact my husband. He wants to be there! And he has answers to most questions you may have. In case of Peerage, please also contact my Pelican, Mistress Arianna Morgan (Atlantia). My In Case of Peerage files can be found here: Pelican | Laurel
- For events outside of Concordia, please summon me in advance or use a writ. I work most weekends, but with advance notice I can usually arrange the day off. No summons are needed for events in Concordia--I'll be behind the Baronial thrones as Herald.
- Scroll Preferences: Any size scroll is great -- wall space is not an issue! I love Celtic knotwork. I prefer a palette of green, blue, black, and silver/white. I am not at all fond of pink.
