Greetings unto the populous of the great Barony of Iron Bog,
The time has come for the Barony to decide who will next sit on the Thrones of Iron Bog. To this endeavor do we, Don Eldrich Gaiman and Kamejima Takauji-dono, submit ourselves for consideration. We have a great love for the Barony and would be honored to serve its populous over the coming years.
Don Eldrich has been a standing member in the borders of Iron Bog for 22 years, and during that time has held a number of Baronial and Kingdom offices including baronial herald, webminister, and marshal of fence, as well as Eastern Crown Herald, the submissions herald for the East Kingdom.
Takauji-dono has been a member of the Barony of Iron Bog since Oct of 2020 and has held the position of Baronial Marshal of Fence for approximately that same amount of time. Before coming to the Barony he has spent many days actively working at Baronial events in various roles. Additionally, he has previously held both positions of Seneschal and Chatelaine, at the same time, in the neighboring Shire of Barren Sands.
We see the chief job of the baroncy as working to guarantee that as many people can have as much fun as possible. We wish to continue the Barony’s long standing traditions and to showcase the caliber of it’s amazing populous.
Yours In Service

Greetings unto the Barony of Iron Bog!
The purpose of this missive is to put forth that we, Maître André l’Épervier and Lady Genevra d’Angoulême, intend to seek the privilege of becoming the next baronial seats.
André has been a member of the SCA since 1991 and has been a resident of Iron Bog for all but 3 of those years. He is a companion of the Order of Defense, Order of the Golden Rapier, Order of the Silver Gauntlet, Order of the Silver Compass, and Order of the Sable Martlet and is a recipient of the Baroness’ Silver Ring. He is also a member of the Tadcaster Militia and former member of the BoBo Club for Men. He has served the barony as Captain of the Guard for two baronial reigns, fencing marshal, and fencing marshal-in-charge at several events and by running the fencing practice prior to the pandemic, setting up, taking down, and maintaining the Iron Bog Pennsic encampment, and cleaning up at many events.
Genevra has been a member of the SCA since 1996 and has been a resident of Iron Bog for all but 3 of those years. She is a companion of the Order of the Silver Crescent, Order of the Burdened Tyger, Order of the Silver Martlet, Order of the Sable Martlet, Order of the Sable Compass, and Order of the Ducke and is a recipient of the Baroness’ Silver Ring. She is also a member of the Tadcaster Militia and bearer of the mighty Stick Weasel Sinister. She has served the barony as chatelaine, deputy chatelaine, chronicler, deputy mistress of arts and sciences, event steward for 2 events, and head cook for multiple events.
Iron Bog is very dear to our hearts, and so we would like the opportunity to serve its populace further should we have the honor of being chosen as Baron and Baroness. We have sought counsel from several of the previous baronial seats and feel that we are willing and able to contribute the time, energy, and resources needed for this responsibility. We welcome any questions or advice any member of the populace might have for us and hope you will find us worthy candidates.
Yours in Service,
André l’Épervier and Genevra d’Angoulême
