Below you will find out a little more information on characters that our members protray. During this creation process a lot of effort goes in to historical research: location, clothes, names, birth year, profession and much more.

Vaesel Halla Smidrdottir. Soothsayer, Thegn and Drengr

My name is Vaesel Halla Smidrdottir. I am Soothsayer, Organiser of all things Tentage , Craft and Edible, Drengr and mother of Morrigan. I was born locally in Hlaew but after bearing witness to the treatment and hanging of young Viking raiders on Malling Down, I subsequently joined the rest of the raiding party who after some persuasion (I too like shiny things, a good scrap and you guys are so much cooler) accepted me as one of them. I am happiest in the shield wall poking anyone in my way with Clint my trusty two handed spear…. I also enjoy a good bash with axe and shield and shooting the odd Saxon.
