My name is Katie-Lee Faulkner (otherwise known as Bronwyn), and I am a student at Arizona State University and the Librarian for its SCA group- the College of Brymstonne.
I became active in the SCA just over a year ago, and got started in the Barony of Twin Moons. It was a great place to start my experience, and I still can’t believe how much I have learned. Everyone was helpful and their generosity continues to astound me.
When I started, my main interest was hardsuit fighting. Naturally, I helped out with waterbearing to get on the battlefield as much as possible while my armor kit was coming together. (I quite enjoy waterbearing!) I have been training on and off for about a year, and fought in my first battles at Highlands War- check out the video.
Although my persona is 12th Century English, I am completely enamored by everything Roman! I have the excessive amount of hair required for most of their styles, and the sewing is nice and easy for someone so lacking in sewing ability as myself.
I hope this blog entertains and informs you, no matter where you are in your journey through your personal life and the SCA.
