Lord Edmund Forster has been involved with the SCA since 2013. His first event attended was Shire Wars III, run by the Shire of Archer's Ford (incipient). He is active in the fencing and cut and thrust communities in Shire of Owlsherst and the Southern Region. He is also active in the Webministry office.

Mundanely, he is vegan, and does not consume anything from an animal, and tries to avoid wearing anything from an animal. He has been actively working to foster a community between fellow vegans and vegetarians in the SCA via Pennsic social gatherings and a Facebook group.

In Case of Court

Edmund is indifferent towards surprises, so either contact him directly, or contact his lady, Esmeria De Rus. Because of mundane responsibilities, Edmund often is unable to attend court at the end of events. If Edmund is expected to be in court for any reason, please let him know in advance if possible, so arrangements can be made.

In Case of Etherial Court

Edmund has no problem being called into an etherial court, or receiving any awards or recognitions during an etherial court. He just requests that he be informed that he should attend a specific etherial court if required.

If Receiving an Award Document

  • Note to the Scribe assigned: He is very partial towards scrolls on black paper with metallic inks/paints. He is also partial to late-period Indian or Mughal artwork/design/language/script. If a Dachshund, Corgi, or a mythical monster or creature found their way onto the scroll, he would not complain.
