It’s been far too long since I’ve updated this.
I feel like I’ve hardly done anything to this website, and yet I already want to do a redesign. Itchy fingers and an itchy mind are the curse of the restless. EDIT: As you can see, I changed the website after all.
That said, today has been the best in terms of personal productivity in months.
- Did a hardware supply run
- Planned an event
- Built a banner pole setup for my Gonfalon (Courtesy of my wonderful Pelican, Mistress Ingerith)
- Completed 2/3 of a new rapier offhand (with instructions and an article to come soon(tm)
- Studied new rapier concepts to practice and teach
This year in the SCA should be an interesting one – I would like to travel more around Lochac. I had the pleasure of visiting the Barony of Politarchopolis for the first time for 12th Night early this year, taking a carpool from Innilgard that included playing taxi for the B&B. It was my first opportunity to serve as a part of court and I found I enjoyed it, even if all I really did was look good, hold cups and his Excellencies do-rag.
I had a lot of fun there, and I hope to have the opportunity to travel further. I’ve made it a personal goal to attempt to reach one new Barony (at least), per year so that I can experience everything this Kingdom can offer. I hope to hit a second this year in travelling to Ynys Fawr for Great Southern Gathering. In a strange turn about, it will be my third GSG in a row, but my first where I won’t be fighting a Guild Prize. I hope to develop a class to present however.
I have further personal goals of upping the quality of everything I do – rather than take on anything more – in fact, I will be stepping down as Seneschal this year, something I hope will give me more time and energy to return to working on my own game rather than playing hide-a-way in a Castle of Paperwork.
In closing, I will leave you a lovely photo taken of me announcing myself at the most recent Baronial Rapier Championship in Innilgard. I didn’t win, but I had fun, and more importantly I managed to convince half my opponents to fight me with single or case of daggers – which given the distance and footwork restrictions actually made my fights more fun.
