About Me

Tiarna Brann mac Finnchad
Biørn Farþegnson (possible persona change and unused as of yet)
Beorn se Bacaire

I have been playing since August of 2007, in the Barony of Selviergard (West Kingdom).  My persona was originally a (nominally) Saxon baker, is currently an 8th Century Irishman (who really likes wearing other clothing as well), and may change to that of an 9th Century Norse craftsman residing in Adleigjuborg (Staraya-Ladoga, Russia).

I am Proteged and Cadeted to Mistress/Donna Etain O'Rowarke, and Apprenticed to Mistress Rolynnda of Azure Stone.  My first master (Arts) was Master Ardrude Penwaer.  In the West Kingdom Royal Guild of Defence, I am a Journeyman studying Camillo Agrippa.
