Donnchadh once turned off the water to Namron camp at Gulf War, because he saw Caterina playing in the mud with a bunch of people, and he knew she would head for the shower next. He is such a sneeky hobbit!


One time, while I was the Baroness, I was SO under the weather. I wanted to go to Ansteorra Chili night, but I was unable to make it. I sat outside of my tent, facing the road, watching chili night happen. Donnchadh came up and sat next to me. He became the voice of Namron. He would summon people for me, ask my questions, and tell everyone what I was thinking. It was rather funny, until he tried to get TRM over!

Donnchadh has been a constant source of information and wisdom since I joined the SCA, and I value his expertise in many areas. But, I would also never turn my back on him if he has a saddle.
