SCA History

Asny began in the Shire of Hartwood, in the Kingdom of An Tir in the fall of 1996, but moved to the Barony of Lions Gate less than a year later, in April 1997. She resided in Lions Gate for 16 years, and served as the Mistress of Arts and Sciences and Exchequer for periods of time. She was the Baronial Champion of Bardic in A.S. 46 (2012). She is also one of the few recipients of the Baronial Warrant, an award created by Baron James and Baroness Margaret, for having been recognized for the outstanding quality and craftmanship of their work. She received this for her lampworked beads.

In late 2012, Asny moved northeast about 1200km, to the wilds of northeastern British Columbia, in the modern world. There she was met with no SCA branch at all, and the closest branch was 2 1/2 hours away. And so, in 2014, she became the founding Seneschale of a proto-branch known to its inhabitants as Myrrgarðr (Old Norse for Swamp Fort). Officially, she resides in the King's Land, as the branch has not officially been created and recognized by the Kingdom and Society yet.

While now living in Avacal, Asny can occasionally be seen at the odd event in and around the Lions Gate area, due to having friends and family residing there.

Asny was a member of the household Holly House while she resided in Lions Gate, though the household is now defunct, and is apprenticed to Mistress Seiglynda of Elphinstone.
