Unto the populace,

It is with a heavy heart, that I announce the passing of a great An Tirian. At about 2:20pm this afternoon (January 2, 2008), Olafr has crossed the rainbow bridge after a ferocious battle with cancer. He passed in the arms of his loving wife, Baroness Meara Ferch Evan-Davies, who was there til the final breath.

Although Olafr has gone, he has left his mark in An Tir, as well as the Known World. Olafr was heavily involved in the implementation, rules and materialization of youth combat (boffer). Another unknown fact about Olafr is that he spearheaded (no pun intended) competetive thrown weapons, writing the first set of rules acknowledged by An Tir and the Known World.

He was: Kingdom Seneschal and Kingdom Constable (x2). Member of the Order of the Pelican Ferocious squire to Viscount Sir Donnan the Truehearted Brewer of fine skookum meads Norse Judge Great Yellow Fjordflopper
