Lady Janna von Guggisberg. Joined SCA ~late 2013. My first event, Bjorn's Ceilidh in Concordia, I went to the kitchen to meet people (it's surprising how much you can learn in a kitchen!), asked how I could help, and was invited to peel and chop 80# of onions. We all had a good laugh when we found only 40# were actually needed! The barony's people were welcoming and easy to talk to. At feast I was shocked and very honored to be invited to sit at the head table with the baron. The food was so amazing I told everyone at work that I'd found the best restaurant in the area. A few months later I found myself at Pennsic with a 14' round pavilion and haven't looked back. I was (and remain) taken with the barony's great passion for learning and their seemingly boundless generosity.
14th Century Swiss. I love my homeland and freedom fiercely. I revel in the variety and complexity of the people, information and goods that pass through Switzerland and make us who we are. The mountains, waters and outdoors of the Berner Oberland are my delight. I may or may not be familiar with mercenaries and may or may not have a halberd in my pantry...
