Master Arnoff Ragnarsson. Joined the SCA in 1977 in Ostgardr (the unpronounceable Province, New York City), Kingdom of the East. Moved to the Barony of Bjornsborg (San Antonio, Texas) in the Kingdom of Atenveldt. Moved again to western Massachusetts and helped found the Shire and then Barony of Bergental. Lived in and kept in touch with Bjornsborg in what became the Kingdom of Ansteorra. While living in Bergantal was the founding Knights Marshall, autocratted a lot of the early events, organized and produced a calligraphic calander, and lots of other fun things. Spent a lot of time in Carolingia (Greater Boston Area, Massachusetts) working at my mundane job, but lived in Bergantal. Eventually settled in Stonemarche (New Hampshire), not that they know I'm here. Was squired to Sir Randall (East Kingdom, but originally from the Middle Kingdom). Was proteged to Mistress Ammalynne Starchild Heraldsdottir (Kingdom of Meridies). Order of the Pelican, Queen's Order of Courtesy, etc.

- Lately I've been getting into a Greenland Inuit alternate persona. Think "Eskimo" in contact with Vikings.
Offices & Positions
Hell, I can't remember them all. I was a warranted Marshall, Herald, and Chirurgeon for years and years. I was a Marshall first and longer than I ever was a Chirurgeon, yet I'm remembered as a Chirurgeon. Go figure. I was the first Master Chirurgeon in the East Kingdom. I think they've got me down as a Chirurgeon Emeritus now.
- East Kingdom Chirurgeon, location: go ahead, guess..., 11/01/1986 to 05/01/1989
- Chirurgeon General of the SCA, location: everywhere..., 05/01/1989 to 05/01/1992
I'm not even going to try. Lots and lots of these. Ran Yule Feast in Bergantal like the first three years it was held. Autocratted lots of other events. Ran dance practices. Ran fighter practices. Ran storytelling. Ran meetings. Taught classes. Caused classes to be taught. Even feastocratted an event called the Secret Policeman's Ball. Did a Kingdom Twelfthnight with my protege Aurora (who did an amazing amount of work). Somewhere in there they gave Aurora and me Burdened Tygers.
Projects & Publications
Again, I can't remember 'em all. I like to write and draw.
- al-Qanun - a magazine for Chirurgeons and other interested parties - bimonthly inter-Kingdom / international newsletter (pre-Internet. Many Kingdom Chirurgeons redistributed it to their folks as their official newsletters with their own messages inserted. This was done at my suggestion for those who would find it useful.)
- Compleat Anachronist: Issues in Chirurgery, A Collection from Al-Qanun
- The Weavers and Spinners Network - bimonthly inter-Kingdom / international newsletter (pre-Internet).
