Introduction

This is a work in progress

There are three distinct phases of Malcolm's SCA career.

1st Atlantia (2004 - 2008)

1st Drachenwald (2008 - 2019)

2nd Atlantia (2019 - )

Persona

Malcolm is a man-at-arms of the 14th Century and an early member of the 14th Century Mafia in Atlantia.

Malcolm is a dandy who excels at showing off his fine clothes and armour...just don't expect him to be able to fight his way out of a wet paper bag with a sharp knife. Malcolm has been seen in public in Tudor fashions of the 16th Century and in Norse fashion of the 10th Century

Marshal Accomplishments

During the 1st Atlantian Phase, Malcolm spent his first year traveling to over 22 events and earned his Award of Arms by the hand of His Majesty Janos I becoming Lord Malcolm de Moffat when he volunteered to be the Baronial Herald for the Barony of Caer Mear. Malcolm was initially squired to Sir Bryce de Byrum and joined the Hotel de Byrum, in AS 39 at the Tourney of Ymir where he advanced to the semi-finals for the first time. He served with distinction with his Knight and squire brothers at the initial the Challenge of the Heart Tournament (AS 39) and was invited to fight by his Knight's side in the 2nd Combat of the Thirty at Pennsic War 34 where he was awarded the knight's chain from a knight of the King of the East for his prowess that day. In AS 40 Malcolm took the Cross and left for crusade in Babylon spending four years and losing many friends but serving with distinction in the sands of that far off land.

Sickened by years of heat and sand Malcolm, in AS 44, sailed for the port of Vielbergen in the Barony of Knight's Crossing in Drachenwald, home of a myriad of lords and ladies from all over the Knowne World, starting his 1st Drachenwald phase; he wished to stay ostensibly for only a year but his sojourn lasted much longer and enabled him to serve a number of different Lords and Ladies in that gorgeous kingdom for over ten years. Malcolm served as the Barononial Champion for the Baron of Knight's Crossing; he fought in the initial Tourney des Hertzwald as a tenon; he fought as the 'Red Knight' on two different occasions during Tourney des Hertzwald II, Tourney des Hertzwald III. In AS 49, Malcolm moved east to the Canton of Turnstadt and had the pleasure of served as Man-at-Arms to Duke Thorvaldr Tvisvar Brottinn including traveling in the Duke's household to Gulf Wars and Drachenwald 20 Year as well as serving as Seneschal of the Canton.
