== Introduction ==
+
TOAD is an acronym that stands for "Them OGRs' Academy of Defence".  So TOAD
 +
Academy is actually "Them OGRs' Academy of Defence Academy".  Kind of silly and
 +
repetitive, but that pretty well describes us. 
-
Lord Martyn de Halliwell first got involved in the SCA in 2006 after being approached by several SCA members while selling hats he had made at a local Renaissance Faire. His first event was Noisemakers II in February 2007. He currently resides in the Canton of Black Icorndall in the Barony of Bhakail, where he is active as Baronial Chronicler & Canton Herald, volunteers his time at events, runs a weekly A&S workshop, cooks, brews, and works on period music. His plans include more music, more heraldry, more cooking, more brewing, some fighting, and some fencing.

== Persona ==
 
-
*Lord Martyn de Haliwell was born into a minor Breton noble family living in Richmond, North Yorkshire, England in the 14th century. During his youth he traveled extensively with both of his grandfathers (one a well-known diplomat and merchant, the other a successful military commander), having extensive stays in London, Paris, Rome, Constantinople and Cologne. After the kidnapping of his parents, he immediately returned home from his time abroad.  He now resides in and administers his parents' estates in both Richmond and Brittany, frequently travelling between the two. He holds some small estates in Avignon, but has yet to travel to them, relying on the chatelaines there to manage them.<br><br>
 
-
*However sometimes- Martyn Halliwell is currently a lord of unknown origins and can be found perusing the libraries, churches and associating with the musicians of the Court of the Tudor monarchs.

Ok, 7 people for a 5 person team, something doesn't add up here.  The original TOADs
-
*Companion of the Order of the Silver Crescent - TRM Kenric II & Avelina II (03/22/2014)
+
were Dona Mercedes, Don Ricardo, and their cadets, Emeline, Ronan, & Xavier.  The
-
*Award of Arms - TRM Andreas III & Gabriella I (09/29/2007)
+
name TOAD was originally an acronym for the "Two OGR Academy of Defence".  Due to
-
*Companion of the Order of the Troubadours - TRM Edward II & Thyra I (01/05/2013)
+
injuries, replacements needed to be found, adding Don Antonio and Malcolm, thus
-
*Companion of the Master of the Horse - Barony of Bhakail - TE Darmon & Sabine (08/05/2008)
+
bringing the team to seven members.  TOAD as an acronym still worked, only it was now
-
*Flame of Bhakail - Barony of Bhakail - TE Darmon & Sabine (12/03/2011)
+
the "Three OGR Rapier Academy".  Well, since that point, many years ago, all the original
-
*Golden Chime of Carillion - Barony of Carillion - HE Kis Maria (09/15/2012)
+
members of TOAD have now been created as members of the Order of the Golden
-
*Honor of the Sea Star - Crown Province of Østgarðr - TE Guy & Johanne (10/26/2013)
+
Rapier (OGR).  Thus the name had to change after it was more than three, so it became
-
*Taxation Rights for Fabric Mills in Clifton Heights - Barony of Bhakail - TE Mael Eoin & Ysmay (08/18/2013)
+
"Them OGRs' Academy of Defence" or just TOAD.

(Fieldless) Three toads tergiant conjoined in pall at the feet vert

TOAD is an acronym that stands for "Them OGRs' Academy of Defence". So TOAD Academy is actually "Them OGRs' Academy of Defence Academy". Kind of silly and repetitive, but that pretty well describes us.


History

But that does not answer the question, what is TOAD?

TOAD started out with seven members who combined together for the Atlantian 5-Man Melee.

Ok, 7 people for a 5 person team, something doesn't add up here. The original TOADs were Dona Mercedes, Don Ricardo, and their cadets, Emeline, Ronan, & Xavier. The name TOAD was originally an acronym for the "Two OGR Academy of Defence". Due to injuries, replacements needed to be found, adding Don Antonio and Malcolm, thus bringing the team to seven members. TOAD as an acronym still worked, only it was now the "Three OGR Rapier Academy". Well, since that point, many years ago, all the original members of TOAD have now been created as members of the Order of the Golden Rapier (OGR). Thus the name had to change after it was more than three, so it became "Them OGRs' Academy of Defence" or just TOAD.


Others have said TOAD stands for:

  • Tarkesh of Artemisia's Dragoons
  • Tough, Old, and Dangerous
  • Too Old and Damaged
  • Tired, Old and Deranged
  • Too Obsessed About Details
  • They're Obnoxious And Demented

TOAD, now with franchises in the East Kingdom, Trimaris, Atlantia, An Tir, and Atenveldt.
