Friends of the House

Some folks are or have been more-or-less formally associated with Corby. These include former or current foster squires, people who I would squire if they fought, and other strange cases that really don't fit into fealty, but whom are always welcome in our house and enjoy an association with it.

Rolf the Blunt

Rolf the BluntRolf became Thjora's apprentice and fights wearing her colors and my badge. He currently resides far away in Iowa, so we see him far less than we care to. His skills are with the pen and in leatherworking.

Philip ap Griffith

Philip swore fealty to the household at Pennsic 33 in Vair and Ermine Camp.

Philip is the toughest guy I know, and a professional architectural metal worker with a kick ass welder. An Isenfir native, his time in the army took him to Texas, Haiti, Germany and Iraq.

His two kids are Leo and Susan. Susan is the newest fighter in the household.

Evja Roskva


Evja swore fealty at the Tournament of Fortunatus at Caer Gleniog.

An 11th century Icelandic Viking, she fights with a round topped kite shield, the newest fashion in that age. She also swings a polearm around now and then.

Mundanely, Evja lives in Edgewater, Maryland and travels too much for her work.

Colin Gordon

Colin joined the household as my third squire at the 1998 Hastilude held in Caer Glyniog. Since then, Colin has been knighted and formed his own household, but still has a place with us.

Here are a "few" pictures Colin has collected from around the web.

Edwin Bilgewater

Edwin joined the household during the second reign of Galmr and Katerina, at a very crowded Twelfth Night in Black Diamond. At least I think it was the second reign. Edwin transferred his fealty to the king when he became Baron of Black Diamond, resigning his belt at that time. No longer a territorial baron, Edwin now resides in Delaware but is still a part of the household.

Members of House de la Flamme

As I've mentioned elsewhere on this site, I'm very careful about adding people to the household. I think of it as "the family you pick", with all the things that means. That care has proven itself over the years, as we've managed to all stay close, enjoy each others' company and learn from each other. Each of the members below gets an entry of their own, which they're welcome to add to, edit, or correct.

Do you have a story about a member of the household you'd like to share? Put it in the comments of this section. I'm adding pages for the members one at a time, in the closest thing I can get to chronological order of their joining the household.

Though some folks I'm a bit fuzzy on.

I've organized the members below based on whom they're in fealty or service to, or failing that, whom they met first. So my squires are under me, and Thjora's apprentices are under her. Spouses, kids and pets are listed under the member of the household they're directly associated with, or will be when it is all done.
