At Events

Sometimes at events you may find Mari working at Troll. She likes being a Troll. She also enjoys list running if there is a tournament happening, and loves serving feasts. Having a strong love of games, be it card games, board games, or lawn games, Mari has created the "Household" Gameday Taverne. The general purpose of Gameday Taverne is to (hopefully) schedule and arrange Servers for feasts at local events... and of course, play games!

These days you can sometimes find Mari helping out in the kitchen because her son Siege seems to enjoy them, and it is important to support the children in their endeavors. While in the kitchen, personal preference is for washing dishes over doing anything with the food.

Mari camps with Folkvang at Pennsic, found in block N21 near the North Gate.

  • If receiving an award document, a note to the Scribe assigned: Please to do whatever style you are most comfortable with. Encouraged to decorate with cats, games (card, board, or yard types), people playing games, but also have fun with skeletons, skulls, demons, and Hellmouths. If you really want to recreate extremely religious (any religion) iconography, please do! I will love it all.
