My surname is pronounced: Key-oat-va-son

I am the Baron of Nordskogen. I am a herald, a swordsman (diestro), and counseller. I am an anda of the Great Dark Horde. I am also a semi-professional troublemaker.

My persona is year 1000 Norse, tripping between Iceland and Norway. These days I'm primarily playing with rapier and cut and thrust combat and working on the alternate 16th century persona, because I can't justify playing with 16th century swordsmanship as a year 1000 Norseman.
