Morgan Tryggvisson was a founding member of the Shire of Darkwell, and for most of its early existence, it's only fighter. He was featured prominently on the local news following Darkwell's first event, as his defeat in combat was replayed to the tune of Pat Benatar's "Hit me With Your Best Shot.
He later became an affiliated member of the Barbarian Freehold Alliance, and worked steadfastly to increase the number of martial participants within the Shire.
At an unnamed event in Caid, on 20 May 89, he received an Award of Arms by Their Majesties Guy and Darla
Sean Edward Fowler 9/18/1963 -- 1/11/2003
Sean Edward Fowler passed away unexpectedly on January 11, 2003. He was 39 years old.
Sean was born September 18, 1963, in Bakersfield, California. He attended local schools and was a member of West High Schools first Academic Decathlon team. At the state Academic Decathlon Tournament, he won the bronze medal in mathematics. He went on to earn a B.S. in Chemistry from California State University Bakersfield and was set to complete his M.A. in Education in May 2003. Sean loved science, history and politics.
Married in 1994 to Julie Marie Reyes, Sean was a dedicated husband that took great delight in sharing the world with his wife. Together they traveled to Europe and spent countless hours in the car discussing current events and dreaming about the future. Family was the focus of their busy schedules. They never turned away a person in need, often offering their home as shelter to friends and family in crisis.
Sean was a wonderful person. He was an Eagle Scout, Cub Scout Leader, chemist, teacher, Second Amendment supporter, and idol to his many nieces and nephews. He always had time to explain the intricacies of building a superior paper airplane and the implications of third-world debt. Sean hiked the Sierras, wind surfed around Catalina Island, and hand-fed injured owls. His life was rich with experience and abundant in joy.
He helped establish the Fencing Club at CSUB and was a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Kern Astronomical Society, Five-Dogs Creek Posse, and the Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society. He spent countless hours after work helping his students at Freemont Elementary and Pond Schools. His resume of activities and affilations do not begin to describe the breadth and scope of his character and compassion.
Sean is survived by his wife, Julie; his parents, Dale and Patricia Fowler; his sisters, Heather Ann Fowler and Patricia Colleen Keene; his brother, Dale Edward Fowler, Jr.; his grandmother, Juanita Johnson; and by other loving family, special friends and dear co-workers.
To celebrate Seans life, family and friends will gather on Saturday, January 18, 2003, at 1:00 p.m. to share their memories and deep affection for a truly special man.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Kern County Science Foundation, 1300 17th Street City Centre, Bakersfield, CA 93301.

- Leave your memories here.
I remember Morgan as a High School Senior and College Freshman, who had just learned about the SCA, and was eager to learn, and somewhat disappointed that Darkwell didn't have a warband or even a fighter's practice at that point. The majority of us were artisans, but we were happy to assist him in his quest. Within a few months of joining us, he had recruited another half dozen or so who were also interested in becoming fighters, and had set up a regular practice schedule and was working his way towards his authorization to fight, and he participated in the tourney at Darkwell's first Kingdom level event, which was the Barony of the Isle's Anniversary. He displayed great honor and flair, and his tourney death was shown for several nights on the local news, to the accompaniment of Pat Benatar's then popular song, "Hit Me With Your Best Shot." He was a good kid. He grew up to be a good man, and I wish that we had stayed in touch after our family moved away from the area. --Alaric wulfgar (talk) 15:26, 15 May 2016 (PDT)
