Lord Sir Randalf Falconbridge, of Slaughter Creek, Defender of the CK, KoS.
""He is not as other men of this time. By some chance the blood of Westernesse runs nearly true in him. He has long sight. He can perceive, if he bends his will thither, much of what is passing in the minds of men, even of those that dwell far off. It is difficult to deceive him, and dangerous to try." -- Minas Tirith, "The Return of the King"
"Rand is the keeper of Torch lore, stationed near checkpoint Dalos just off the shores of the Golden City. His ivory tower holds mysteries long lost.." -- Asylus Cotta, The Night Train
"Rand either demonstrates casual indifference or swift violence." -- Doomshadow
"Never in a tournament." -- Rand
"No one stays dead forever." -- Rand
The Thirteenth Torch, the second Raised during the Attitude Era. Most commonly called Rand. The natural born son of Hulka of Allender, the circumstances of his birth prohibit him from taking the family name of Dunglen hence his use of the distaff name of Falconbridge. Nephew to his eminence Cardinal Dunbar, and Captain of his Scouts. His Uncle frequently referred to as the "Hound of Dunglen" in recognition of his loyalty and ferocity.
Shortly after Dunbar's decision to enter seclusion Rand migrated to the HFS kingdom of Barad Duin. In time he rose to the rank of Captain in the Barad Duin Foreign Legion. Rand was one of the chief supporters of King Fish I, who would later name him his seneschal and Lord of the Black Tower in Exile.
Despite his regular participation in HFS, Amtgard remains his primary focus. A long time resident of Ditch Central, he belonged to Tori-Mar for much of his career. These days he can regularly be found at the Barony of Slaughter Creek. In HFS he is presently serving out his second ten year term as Chancellor of Bobsnia Torchegovania.

I'm a fairly prolific writer but the examples on that page are all from the bad old days in the mid-nineties. When viewed in the modern light they are reasonably horrific. I have left them here as a historical curiosity. If you go as far as to read them, please view them as a product of their proper place and time. Amtgard has come a long way since then, for that matter so have I. They do not in any way reflect the state and values of our organization in the modern age.
