I have been playing guitar. I have taught myself on a borrowed Ovation from the Thora clan. Loving every second of it and it helps to remind me that my wrist is finally healed.

I have a lot of prep I still need to do for Pennsic, especially when it comes to putting together my classes. This will be a very busy Pennsic filled with Commedia, teaching, performing, taking classes, and hopefully spending a lot of time with the Casa. There are plans in motion.

If I can find a hard case, I will bring the Ovation to war. If I can not, I will have to suffer without it. I've gotten so used to it and can play a plethora of pieces on it, even if they are slow and not as fancy in strumming yet. But it gives me something for a soundtrack. And starts working me towards understanding of various medieval instruments that have been on my wishlist that I refuse to get until I can play something more basic and easily accessible, such as a guitar.

I've played a 1983 Ovation for years (and brought it to Pennsic). I've seen cases for about $100. I actually cut one of their newer (less well made) cases up for my guitar lute too - https://m.flickr.com/#/photos/in8sworld/1564715152/

Words by Magnus hvmalgi: " At the Flower-Clash, Skarphedinn inn havi was called before Kenric the king and Avelina the queen. A skald was called to speak on the man's deeds. This is what was said. Iron-tower of terrible power crushes our foes, his fearsome ...

Thank you, everyone. As for what the material is, it is made of goat hide. It isn't thin enough to really be vellum, which gave it an much more period and dramatic feel, I thought.

Finally went to the NYC store. So glad that I did! Though the selection was small, it was a lot of the specialty ones. So I got a lupercalia. Having smelled it first. Hurray! And they were so nice. SOOOO nice. I can't say that enough.

Klaus Winterhalter's Tyger's Combattant
I have never done a Tyger's Combattant before and, honestly, when I was given this assignment, I wasn't certain where to start. Fighting, in general, is one of the few parts of the SCA I don't know as much about as I would like, but having done one of the A...

I, sadly, was not there for the gasp. Or for any of my scrolls given out, unfortunately. But I am just so super happy that they went over well!

AoA for Léana Doucet
I admit, I don't know everyone. I just don't. So it is no wonder when this scroll assignment came across my desk that I said 'yes, but I don't know who that is!' Thankfully, the description of why she was getting the word was so brilliantly inspirational ...

Is there anyone, anyone at all, who is going to Crown Tourney and could deliver a scroll for me? I could meet you somewhere near Albany or drive a certain amount of distance to bring it to you. If you happen to be going and driving through Albany, that would be amazing!

Order of the Bedchamber
So, I had decided if I had managed to get into the third round at King and Queen's Bardic, that I would put on my resume (and hope to get asked) to do an Order of the Bedchamber piece. We know, from documents of the court, that there were two Skomorokhi in ...
