Lada Monguligin

My full SCA name with titles is Voevoda Lada Monguligin OL, OM, OSC. Lada Monguligin is pronounced [Lah'|dah Mohn|glih|geen'] I got started in the SCA in 2005 (I think?) I walked into a practice in Union Sq park in NYC one evening, saw the fighters beating the crap out of each other with swords, thought it was the coolest thing ever and haven't looked back. I first got involved in heavy fighting, but then other interests evolved and now I am a scribe and an archer. I work as a scribe for the East Kingdom Tyger Clerk of the Signet creating scrolls. Additionally I focus on the art of medieval Russian calligraphy and illumination. I enjoy studying area in particular as it helps me connect more with my persona.

Crown Province of Ostgardr has been my home and residence since I started playing. I reside in the Canton of Broken Bridge, but I've traveled quite a bit through the kingdom. In June of 2015 I became an apprentice and protege to Mistress Kay Leigh Mac Whyte‎‎ who has encouraged me to get try other things such voice heralding. Never knew I could be that loud. On 9/10/16 my lord and I stepped up as the new Viceregents of the Crown Province of Ostgardr.


I live in the late 13th century Russia under the Mongol rule. I was born in the town of Moscow, and now I serve as scribe, Russian language translator and archer for the horde.
