Since November 28, 2017, I’ve been asking my social media friends list (which, yes, comprises mostly of SCA folks) questions about SCA philosophy, SCA personae, and the like. Sometimes, the questions may have been a bit pointed, and sometimes, well, it’s curiosity. I know I’ve repeated some in my questions (as I’m going through the … Continue reading SCA Philosophy Question Ahoy!
Omphaloskepsis: that pesky C
Before we get started: I will be watching commentary and IP addresses on this post. Any use of the terms "Nazi," or related terms will result in being blocked. I will not tolerate it, nor will I also tolerate bashing of individuals. Any conversation that is not constructive will be removed. Commentary is okay, but … Continue reading Omphaloskepsis: that pesky C
Updates have been hard for me lately. I've been dealing with some things to work through as of lately. I am pleased that the finished pile is getting larger, but the six items have been there for a while and I just need to do them. DO THE THINGS. (but also, reminding myself to be … Continue reading Project Updates
Eynon’s Boga Hirth Scroll
When I got the assignment for this particular scroll, I already had an idea for the art. Eynon's persona is a 13th c Welsh archer (which is great for an archery award), but writing the text was going to present some challenges. Part of the reason for the challenge was that I really wanted to … Continue reading Eynon’s Boga Hirth Scroll
Omphaloskepsis: Making Magic Moments in the SCA
One of the things that I've seen over and over again in the SCA Social Mediaverse is that people want to see more magic moments. A magic moment in the SCA is where time seems to stand still and where it seems that one has gone back into time. Many of us want to have … Continue reading Omphaloskepsis: Making Magic Moments in the SCA
Time for All Things to End
I am stepping down from my post as Baronial A&S champion this weekend (it was supposed to be earlier this year, but we ended up moving the event due to inclement weather) - so I had some time to finish off some things that I wanted to do. I perhaps was not as active of … Continue reading Time for All Things to End
2017 SCA Resolutions, revisited. . .
Looking back at my SCA resolutions from last year, and I got none of them done. Sigh. Not. A. One. Now, to be fair, my modern work life was in a crap-ton of flux, but I'm hoping for much smoother sailing this year. Goals #1 (actually finish a project before taking on another one) and #5 … Continue reading 2017 SCA Resolutions, revisited. . .
Brigida’s Pelican Text
My friend Brigida had the boon begged to be admitted to the Order of the Pelican back in August. She asked me to write her scroll text, of which I was pleased to do so. Brigida's persona is from 1200s Munich (hence the von München in her name!) Tumbling down the rabbit hole that are Holy … Continue reading Brigida’s Pelican Text
Elspeth of Stonehaven’s Calon Lily
One of the first people I ever met in the SCA was given her Calon Lily this weekend for embroidery, and lucky me, I was given the privilege to not only write her scroll text, but also do the calligraphy and illumination. Countess Elspeth has a Scots persona, and so I used a framework consisting … Continue reading Elspeth of Stonehaven’s Calon Lily
Rufus Tenstone’s Silver Hammer
I was asked to write a scroll text for my friend Rufus, who received his Silver Hammer (Grant-level, Sciences, Calontir) for his pottery at Coronation. Rufus' persona is a Saxon/ Viking orphan, found by the red painted old Roman 10 mile marker outside London. This was delayed due to Coronation being postponed thanks to a predicted monster … Continue reading Rufus Tenstone’s Silver Hammer
