Introduction

Declan Gobha is the current Baron of the Barony of Iron Bog. He is a blacksmith whose blade is for the call of the Tadcaster Militia where he studies the art of defense. He is a student to Don Ian Raven of Tadcaster. He studies Irish Stick Fighting and incorporates it into his fencing with off hand stick. With introduction of rapier spears he has been very excited to work on a more period fighting style with a short spear and sword. As a Kern he would have gone into battle with a handful of short spears, and then stolen your sheep.
