|If you are of the North, you probably know Sir Balvin. If you are a fighter, you probably have bone bruises with his name on them.

(Written for the occasion of Balvin's birthday.)

Mighty Northern Warrior
Master of all weapons
Divine with the greatest of swords
Giving of knowledge
Truest of hearts
When he steps on the field of battle
The eagles cry out
For they know they will feast well
The air rang with their cries on this day when he was born
A hero that heroes look up to.
Truest of knights.



Zubeydah, 10/14/2011:

If you are of the North, you probably know Sir Balvin. If you are a fighter, you probably have bone bruises with his name on them. For years, he gave unceasingly of his time and his expertise, gladly mentoring those who are new, but in such a way as to ever be encouraging, and never a bully. He is a gentleman, and a model of courtesy and integrity. His very zen-like wisdom and acceptance of others is qualities I admire and respect. His ability to forgive and to see the best in others is unmatched. Sir Balvin Thorfinnson is all that a Knight of the Society should be. I hosted an online photo gallery for several years. The picture with the most 'favorite!' votes was one of Balvin stretching out, prior to combat. It was very popular with the ladies. On a less salacious note, Balvin was one of the first individuals in Northkeep who welcomed my lord and I to the SCA. At our first event, though we had only just met, he invited us to join him at the camp of Sigen and Thorgrim. It was the start of a very long friendship.



"The Terror of the North" by Geoffrey Makepeace

Sir Balvin is the Terror of the North
Fights like Obi-Wan using the force.
Well you can talk about this Earl or Duke
But if they can hit Balvin its just a fluke.

With lightning speed and cat like graces
Without even moving he will hit you in two places.
He reads Musashi just for kicks
Stand against Balvin and take your licks.

With sword and shield you might have a chance
Right until he says " Lets Dance ".
With great sword don't even bother
He will hit you so hard it will make you HOLLER.

And if he brings his bastard sword to play
You will be SORE as HELL the very next day.
He always fight with such glee
Hits so HARD it makes you PEE.

No matter the style that he chooses
Fight Sir Balvin you will have BRUISES.
So if you see Balvin on the field
Your best bet is just to YIELD.

Sir Balvin is the Terror of the North.
Whoops Obi-Wan using the FORCE.
