Greetings all from the Shire of Endewearde.

Hello! My name is Lady Aneleda Falconbridge and I have been a pretty enthusiastic supporter of fighters - I'm a member of Thanet House, the house of Syr Cedric of Thanet, and Mistress Mira Fennor of Argyll, to whom I am apprenticed.

I'm a woman of the Northern Army, am authorized in CA and this year authorized in spear. As King's Bardic Champion in the East, and I joined King Lucan VIII on the field at Pennsic XL, carrying a banner for the East on the spear which I authorized in for that purpose. And to my surprise, I actually killed people with it. And to my further surprise, I found that I absolutely loved killing people with it.

So, now, I'm preparing to work with it as weapon more than banner staff, and get a kit up that works for my size, body and persona.

I'm glad to have found this forum!!

Hope to meet you each on the field!

- Aneleda

(I've also been known to sing the occasional battle song. I kind of fell in love with the Eastern army this summer, and they have been my steady muse.)

Welcome to the forums. Smile If you haven't tried poleaxe or glaive some time give it a shot. It's pretty fun too.

LadyLia - Ah, you know, it's always been a flirtation for me, the army. This summer turned it into a full-blown love affair, however.

Might be the spear....

Thank you all for the welcome!

I originally authorized in CA, but because I would be bearing the banner, I had the option really of going as non-combatant and just carrying it. However, why armor up and bring a big stick into a fight if you can't use it, right? So I went with spear, because I could authorize in that form relatively quickly.

I got a primer from Count Edward Gray at Vinland Raids; I was loaned a spear made by Sir D. Sebastian to practice with; I took Sir Angus the Bruce and Count Edward's spear workshop at Vinland (without armor, I did what I could and watched very carefully) with Sir Cullen giving me tips and explanations from the sidelines.

I authorized at the Great Northeastern War, and it only took three members of the Chivalry, and another three fighters, Master Julien and two marshals...But that's its own story.

We'll look at other long weapons after the spear is more solid, methinks! But I'll keep them well in mind!

Thanks all!

- Aneleda
