Lord Áindle Ó’Diarmada became the Pursuivant/Herald for Wealdlake in 2002 and still retains that position. As the canton herald he visited Herald’s Pointe at his first Pennsic (2005) to see what could be done about Wealdlake’s missing name and device submission. The canton’s issues aside, he came home excited to make similar services available to the populace at a local level and Wealdlake’s Herald’s Pointe was born (2008) when the canton was looking to host “an event that was not already being done.” In 2010, the Scribal aspect was added to the event. Dwyn was the Event Steward for this event for 10 years. In 2017, he was approached by the Kingdom Buckler Herald and asked if he would relinquish the event to become a Regional one.
He has been Wealdlake’s Webminister since 2003 and served as the North Woods Webminister from 2007-2015. He is currently the Pentemere Fenris Herald (since 2016). Dwyn is most often found on the rapier lists where he wields both sword and marshal’s baton. He is also an authorized armored fighter and very much enjoys being a Siege Engineer, favoring the ballista. He has been part of the battles with siege weapons every Pennsic he has attended since 2006. Dwyn is also very helpful around events, pitching in when help is needed in the kitchens, with set-up and tear-down, and running general “OMG” errands.
