About Tofi

I'm an 11th C. Icelander living in, and now fourth Baron of The Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands (Pittsburgh and environs; just south of where the Pennsic War is held), in the Sylvan Kingdom of Æthelmearc of the Society for Creative Anachronism.

My current interests are always changing, but include brewing, archery, embroidery, leatherworking, metalworking, and heavy fighting. I'm currently the guildmaster for the Debatable Brewers' Guild.

I have the honor of being wed to the lovely and talented Genevieve du Vent Argent. There has been some talk about how we have a proto-Norman household, but I'm not sure I believe it.

We occasionally hang out with some honorable people with strange customs.

Past Ways of Getting Into Trouble

I used to be apprenticed to Elizabeth Talbot, but on February 20 of A.S. 33, she said that I had caused her enough trouble for her. And then the Crown said that I could cause trouble for them instead. So I promised that I'd only cause good trouble for them (or, in some cases, trouble that is good for them).

New Ways of Getting Into Trouble

Genevieve and I were invested as the fourth Baroness and Baron (respectively) of the Debatable Lands on May 20th A.S. XXXV, at War Practice 11.

Few people confuse Tofi with Mr. T.
