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 38. 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. I found enjoyment in volunteering. I have been active in two baronial office positions at the same time, rapier marshal and herald. I am also a fencing marshal, youth fencing marshal, thrown weapons marshal, and a marshal in training for youth combat. If I see something that needs done, I usually make myself available to make sure it is done and done well.

Pronouns: He/Him/His


Born in Scandinavia in the year 821, Grímólfr Skúlason was the second son in a small farming family. His older brother was the heir to his family's farm and land was scarce to start his own family farm. 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 was recognized by the leader of his community for his service to all those that resided within the settlement and also for his skill with a blade. He began his own household after years of service to Óðinn and the pursuit of knowledge and called it Spak-Hrafns Hús, dedicated to the ravens of Óðinn who would search the world for knowledge to bring back to him. He also joined with the Stormguard unit to show all that opposed his jarl the fierceness of true warriors on the field of battle. Grímólfr spent the rest of his days fighting and learning new skills that could help the settlement around him.
