Avran of Northpass

.... is the name of the persona I created for use in the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA).
I reside within the Canton of Northpass, in the Crown Province of Østgarðr,
in the East Kingdom of the known world.
I created this persona in year 2006.

 So enamored was I of my new identity, that I began to use it outside of the SCA, introducing myself as Avran to my many new friends.  Avran became an escape from my old life.  But eventually, I caught up with me.  Life does that. 

Since then I've since integrated old and new.  Avran is no longer an escape but rather an expansion of my interests, gifts and talents.  I am still known by that name, and I like it.




  A pictorial chronicle of the adventures of the First Year of Avran:
