I am Master Robin Gallowglass, OP. My persona is a 16th century mercenary. I first joined the SCA in 1981 in the Kingdom of Ansteorra, and my first event was "Field of Cloth of Gold" held in Waxahachie, Texas, south of Dallas, Texas.
Activities and Interests
I am a Mentor Chirurgeon and herald and I dabble in woodworking. I am strongly interested in using the Internet and the World Wide Web to make SCA life easier. I make garb on occasion and enjoy strategy games. I'm a beginner at Viking wire weaving and at Pennsic XXXVII, I learned how to finger loop braid.
I was elevated at Mudthaw on March 29th, 2008 by TRM Andreas III and Gabriella. I was totally surprised and caught off guard. My Pelican, Mu'allim Rabah az-Zafir and his wife came up from Virginia, as did Mistress Olwyn ni Chinneidigh; Master Evan da Collaureo and his wife Lady Alys of Foxdale; Master Herveus d'Ormonde and his wife Mistress Megan O'Donnelly. Metressa Jadwiga Zajaczkowa cooked a wonderful "vigil board" and Lady Sara bas Mordechi made homemade chalah for me. Doña Estrella de los Confinos pulled a "Scotty" and makes me an absolutely wonderful Pelican cloak in under a month, if I remember correctly. Lady Alesia de Maris of Ravenstar made me a gorgeous banner and Mistress Kis Marika (called Mika) makes me a pillow with my arms on it!
