Greating one and all!
« on: 2016-05-03, 01:57:44 »
Hello everyone, hope every one is doing fine.

I would like to take a moment to introduce myself.  My real name is Brian Kilmer, but I go by Brient McQuane.  I am a member in The Adrian Empire, and have been in the SCA off and on for the past 20 some years, so I am no stranger to medieval life and the code of Chivalry.  But with saying that I am no further in my personnel quest from when I first started, just traveling down different paths.  I am a fighter, archer, lover of the arts and sciences,  I feel that you must know different things to make one whole.  My problem is there is always something to learn, so I will never be completely whole, ok my friends say off my rocker but that's a different story.

I am the type of person that if you want to know something about me just ask, but be forewarned that I will tell you the truth and depending what it is, I am Irish and have been know to tell you to go in a certain direction and enjoy your trip on the way there.  But always as a friend.

Just recently I had problems with one of the group I play with, and in doing some reflecting I realized that I have not been living up to the code I set for my self, or maybe that code was flawed.  I have taken it upon myself and have challenged others to look at there own code and try and better them selves.  So here I am to learn what I can, share what I can and grow as a person.  Hope I have come to the right group.

Hail and well met Brian and welcome to the forum. I think you will find that you are among kindred spirits here that are like you, flawed but persistent in our individual pursuits to better ourselves.

We tried that once already. Remember what happened when we had two Steves? We ended up with no Steves, an expensive cleaning bill, and one angry peach farmer.

We agreed to never speak of that incident!

I say we split the two Brians and integrate them into some kind of Frankenstein/Ser Gregor (the Mountain) freakish armor thing by taking the best parts of both, and throwing away the scraps. Ian is pretty good at sewing things up. :) All part of compromise. And well-met.

I kind of like our Sir Brian as he is- and he's scary enough on his own.  LOL
