Hello! I am Baroness Brighid, and I am new to the East! I like to meet people, so please say hello! I moved here in early 2010, and have sworn my fealty to fight with the East! :)

I am a courtier, a fencer, a royal court herald, a costumer, a scribe, a painter, a weaver, a terrible bard, an autocrat, and I enjoy meeting new people and trying new things.

I am a Warder of the Company of the Bronze Ring, and I was a cadet to Warder Uadahlrich von Sassmannshausen. I have three cadets back in the Middle Kingdom: Andreas von Meissen, Lothair von Bremmen, and Saorla MacArdyle. I was the Rapier General for the Middle Kingdom for three Gulf Wars, and a General of the Middle Kingdom for Pennsic once, as well as the Kingdom XO for Pennsic twice. I was also the Middle Kingdom Scout Commander for rattan for Pennsic. I was on the Pennsic Rapier Champion's Team from 2003 - 2009 (Midrealm), and the Gulf Wars Rapier Champion's Team 2005 - 2006 (Trimaris). I was a Middle Kingdom Rapier Champion in 2003, as well as a regional South Oaken Champion. I used to be known as the "Ringstalker" in my earlier days as I stalked down the Iron Ring frequently. I am a 'retired' member of Wednesday Company.

I am a member of the Order of the Evergreen - Grant of Arms for A&S - for costuming, scribal arts, and rapier. I focus primarily on 16th century clothing and I love the Renaissance quite a bit. I do blackworking and other embroidery, and I take a lot of fun in embellishing garb. I wear men's and women's garb with frequency - mostly men's garb for fencing. I enjoy making scrolls for people I know, and I enjoy a lot of pen and ink work to make scrolls look like 16th century prints. I used to do a lot of tablet weaving, and worked up to Egyptian diagonals, but I do not do that much anymore. I won Middle Kingdom Divisional Arts & Sciences Championship in 2008 with entries for embroidery, clothing construction, and knitting (I made woolen flatcaps much like on the Mary Rose). I am an Apprentice to Master Philippe de Lyon of the Middle Kingdom.

I have been a long-time royal court herald in the Middle Kingdom but haven't had the chance to do so in the East yet. I would like to! I also am an autocrat, and have autocratted the Known World Academy of the Rapier (2008), Middle Kingdom Crown Tournament, Middle Kingdom A&S Faire, South Oaken Regional A&S Faire, and co-autocratted Winter's End (an event hosted by the Barony of the Fenix). I am a Protoge of Master Vhorlin Or' Gwig of the Middle Kingdom.

My registered name, which I do not use, is Bríghid inghean Chonmhaoil. I prefer Brighid MacCumhal. I was made a Baroness of the Middle Kingdom Court of Dag & Annelyse.


I don't really have a persona, per se. My SCA 'family' - Uadahlrich, Andreas, Lothair, and Peter - are Landskenechts, so I am the token non-Landskenecht in the group.

I like the 16th century. I love everything about the Renaissance. I love to play the role of the Courtier, and I am very much a Royalist (which is why I enjoy being a herald is it gives the opportunity for such things)!

I tend to dress in Renaissance men's clothing for fencing, and women's clothing for court, though I do occasionally wear 16th c Turkish because it's fun and what my best friend also does. :)
