Ur Sir^3 Cermit D Frogknight Wyndhaven of Tir Asleen
Game Pronouns: They/Them
Mundane Name: William Pearsall
Mundane Pronouns: They/Them
I have been nominated by Silk Wyndhaven as a potential candidate for President of Hearthlight. I am accepting this nomination and putting myself forward for your consideration as our future President.
Many of you have probably seen me make posts in regards to Hearthlight elections, and wondered to yourself, who the hell is this person? Outside of LARP I’m a software developer with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, and I have experience in Human Resources as well.
Inside of LARP, I was a founding member of the Black Guard of Tir Asleen, the Dagorhir chapter Tir Asleen (Now the Hearthlight chapter), and Hearthlight itself. I have been knighted by the Black Guard of Tir Asleen, House Tull, and House Wyndhaven, and in addition I am a Brother and Leedleknight of Furya. I was selected as one of the initial members of Hearthlight's Board of Directors and have served in that capacity for close to 2 years now. I am dedicated to the mission of Hearthlight and to the community, and I will continue to be dedicated to it for the foreseeable future.
Ur Sir^3 Cermit D Frogknight Wyndhaven
