Captain, OGR
Co-Agitator, Keeper of the Book of Laws
Captain Davy Flint

FENCING in the SCA since:
1990. Now, little children, gather around for a story...back then you could actually fence if you were under 18...*gasp*, you just needed parent's permission -- mine were happy to get me out of the house.

Worked with all the 'Ancient Dinosaur Dons' of Barren Sands, owned one of the first 10 schlaegers in the East Kingdom, and was a crash test dummy for the Ancients to design the first schlaeger rules. Finally had to retire the flexi-dagger blade (that I got in 1992) in 2003. That's 11 years for those who are bad at math. They certainly made them better back then. But then again it wasn't designed to stop charging Rhinos.

DESCRIPTION of Militia Duties:
Co-Agitator -- Many people are fuzzy on the actual job description of an "agitator", but it's really quite simple. Make sure that just when everything is settled down, you pipe in to get the ravenous piranhas back into a feeding frenzy, and try not to spill too much blood if possible. Duncan shares his Agitator duties with Collin

Keeper of the Book Of Laws -- There are a great many Rules and Laws which govern our daily lives. Unfortunately, most of us wouldn't know what they were even if they jumped up and bit us in the dog. But, that's where Duncan comes in - elucidating us in the hows and whys of Outgoing Champion's Dinners, Incoming Champion's Dinners, Otters as They Relate To Crash Spaces, the Etiquette of Borrowed Guinea Pigs, what have you. And he has all of this knowledge in his head! Never would we be so gauche or ignorant as to suggest that he's making this stuff up.

PIRATE NAME/other personas
Captain Davy Flint, was described thus by the test:

Even though there's no legal rank on a pirate ship, everyone recognizes you're the one in charge. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!

Duncan is also the Militia's official "Dancing Bear", known as "Don Dancing Bear".
